Any suggestions??

Thanks in advance.

There are rumours, possibly they qualify as leaks, that Catechism will presently denote a wifi carte du jour that fits in an SD slot. Nothing new in that location? Yep there is: it is suggested that not only will image transfer exist possible, just also camera remote control, not possible with 3rd-party wifi cards. If this happens and the 5DIII receives the necessary firmware upgrade, it could be what yo need.

Center-Fi Mobi

If all you need is to transfer JPEG files to your Android/iPhone for immediate electronic mail and sharing, the Center-fi SD menu works nifty.

I salvage raw files to the CF card and jpeg to the eyefi in the SD slot. If all I want is to post on Facebook while traveling, so the small S2 is good plenty. If I want to email to people in the photo, then S1 is better.

The Heart-Fi Mobi is easy to utilize. You just download and install the app, type in the code that comes with the card. You are done. From at present on, every photograph saved to the card volition be transferred to your phone. My Android phone automatically switches network whenever it detects the eye-fi card with photos not yet transferred. You can plough on/off the Wi-Fi from the camera. Canon worked with Center-fi to back up it on the menu.

The down side is that Eye-Fi has relatively slow Wi-Fi, about 1 MB per second. (I don’t know how fast the 6D transfers). It is definitely not intended to exist a carte reader replacement. If you lot want to control which file to transfer, then y’all demand the pro version which lets you configure the card past plugging information technology into a PC.

I see Eye-fi every bit a stop gap solution every bit more and more than cameras will come with WiFi. Then far, Eye-fi app is much easier to use than camera makers’ native apps. Since Eye-fi cannot control the camera remotely, camera apps will have over. I dubiousness anyone will still apply it in five years.

Meanwhile, I still use i 16G Eye-Fi Mobi card on my 5DMk3 and EOS-M by moving it from one camera to another.

Another affiche mentioned that Canon may denote a better Wi-Fi adaptor. If I were you, I will hold off buying anything until and then.

Thanks in accelerate.

I shot professionally for years with 1D-serial bodies, and loved the security of dual card storage. While never once during all those years did I have to rely on a fill-in card, at that place’south no doubt that it provides peace of listen. But I’ll depart from your characterization of unmarried menu use equally “irresponsible”; there’s plenty of single-slot cameras (such as your 6D) which are totally fine for professional person use and so long as there is an constructive backup program.

In the early days of digital, no photographic camera offering dual slots. Thus, for weddings, I embarked upon a comprehensive exercise of having my assistant backup cards at crucial points throughout the day. For case, later portraits, I’d pop in fresh card while she copied all of the portrait files onto a laptop. Cards and USB were slow in those days, and the process was fairly time-intensive, but important.

In recent years, I turned to a 6D myself for much of my low-light shooting at weddings… dorsum to single cards. Thankfully, today, there are several options:

1 – Android card reader. These are cheap and plentiful for Android devices. Just insert the carte du jour, plug them into your Android telephone or tablet, and copy the files to the device. I’ve copied many thousands of files in this manner without a hiccup.

2 – Camera WiFi. Canon’due south built-in WiFi seems more for camera control than archiving. But it is an pick.

3 – WiFi SD card. For archiving images, WiFi-based cards are actually pretty good. I’ve tried two different ones. Toshiba’due south FlashAir is at present in its 3rd generation. It’s pretty easy to apply. Just download the app, connect to the carte du jour in the camera via WiFi, and re-create the files. For the nigh part, information technology’s fast and reliable. The EyeFi carte du jour, however, while providing the same functionality every bit the Toshiba in this regard, offers a secondary approach not possible with the Toshiba. Basically, it can exist set upwardly to transfer raw of jpg files Equally You lot SHOOT. That is, new images are transferred in the background as you capture them. I’ve apply this method on jobs using an old Android telephone in my pocket and it works pretty well. The connection is sometimes lost and needs to be re-established, but it only takes a moment. And the “peace of mind” cistron is also rather unique in that the fill-in files are located on a totally separate device rather than both residing within the aforementioned camera. With both the EyeFi and FlashAir cards, I’ve too had my assistant download backups every bit I shoot. When that is the example, I never even know when she’s doing it. In fact, at one wedding ceremony, she was downloading files and looking at them on a tablet as I shot, and actually came upwardly to me and suggested that I re-have a particular portrait because of some details she could see on the larger screen which she caught that I, shooting quickly and having access just to the pocket-sized camera screen, could not.

The 6D is my only trunk that doesn’t have dual bill of fare slots, but with these options, I do non consider it a limitation, and it gets used probably more than than even our 5DIII without much business organisation for backing upwards. Unless you’re just a actually decorated photographer without a few minutes to spare, then it’southward probably not appropriate investing thousands in a new camera organization but for that ane feature.

Best of luck
