    It works perfect. I bought it to use with an eye-fi Pro SD Card and there is no function problem.

    I would be better if the slot were a little bigger because... it damage the SD card when insert, not so much but this is a improvable point.

    I bought two of these adapters thinking that I will be able to use one in my D300 or 5DM2 (yah.... :), and then a second one in my D800's CF slot in order to use RAW in SD and JPEGS in the CF slot.

    The adapter works great on the D300 and 5DM2. However! It does not fit in the D800 at all, it's too thick because the room the adapter made to accommodate the SD Card. This was a big disappointment because I really wanted to be able to use a SD card only setup for data imports. I usually put the SD card into my macbook for data uploads but now I'm forced to use the USB cable or an external CF reader which I don't have. That is a major annoyance.

    So now I have an extra card that I can't really use in the D800 and ended up getting a 8GB CF card in order to use it in my D800.

    If it worked on a D800, I would have given it more stars but it is something that you can't know until you actually get it in your hands to try it,

      Well made product, but not good with Nikons and Hitachi wireless card. It is a tight squeez into camera card slot. Works good lying on a desk whils connected to a laptop. But, in camera, with both it's top and bottom shielding covers removed, still no recieption. Also really hard to handle with all the ICs exposed with the covers ripped off, LOL

      Comments about DigiGear Extreme SD-HC-XC to CF Adapter:

      I bought this because I upgraded my camera to a canon 7D, having already purchased several sd cards for my previous camera, I really didn't want to have to sell or store my cards and have to purchase CF cards for my new camera, so this adapter solved the problem allowing me to use my sd cards on the CF slot of the 7D., it was a perfect fit. I'm very happy with product. Thanks again bnh.!

          Comments about DigiGear Extreme SD-HC-XC to CF Adapter:

          When i chatted on line with B&H, they could not confirm that this adapter would work, but said it had been tested with many cameras other than my cannon XTI. They said try it and you can return it if it does not work. I had tried several other adapters that i bought on aXXXXn and none of them worked. When this adampter arrived it fit right into the camera and worked perfectly the first time and has since. That's what you get when you go to a professional camera source for your csamera needs. it also arrived ahead of time-go B&H!!

                This adapter really came in handy as I have a Canon 30D which uses a CF card but with technology as it is today, I can use this adapter for SD cards etc. which means I've up-graded usage, thanks to the adapter.

                My Canon EOS uses SD cards, but my laptop doesn't accept them, only CF cards. Downloading photos from the camera using the patch cable is slow, while the CF cards are much faster when inserted into the laptop. This saves me a lot of time when handling photos.

                    I own more larger capacity SD cards than CF cards.
                    My other bodies took CF and SD cards, while the 5DMKII only took CF cards so this was the perfect solution. Easy fit and works well. Not a scientific study but I feel it to be slower than the card by itself. This only means I would not use it where maximun burst was necessary (sporting events, etc).

                        This device works very well for photography. I have a big collection of SD / SDHC cards that now I can use in my Canon 7D without any problem. Of course SDs are cheaper and available everywhere.

                        It's easy to download my photos to my iPad or just using the SD slot in my PC, no need of CF card reader.

                          I use this adapter with my first DSLR( Canon EOS digital Rebel aka EOS 300D). I read reviews that this camera doesn't support 8 GB Extreme Pro I was able to use Extreme Pro SD card with this adapter.

                            Great for old SD card to convert to use in my Lexar card reader in CF slot.

                                For my surprise, the slot was almost half the thickness of this adapter. Be carefull, because it won't fit most os modern cameras. A pity...

                                I use CF adapter in my Sony a900 and it has performed very well. It was simply plug and play. Plug in my 32GB SD card into the adapter and plug the adapter into the camera...turn it on and shoot away. I love it!

                                  With Compact Flash cards getting harder to find, and with SD cards now everywhere, this adapter allows you to insert an SD card into a CF size unit. This allows you to buy the widely available and less expensive SD cards.

                                  I bought this to transition out of cf cards, as sony has gone to sd cards for all its dslrs now. It works great, but the only limitation is write speed. I have some ultra fast cards, and they slow down considerably when in this adapter. I knew that going into the purchase, and my style if shooting still works well with that, but on a camera like my sony a900 with big raw files, youd be best off to not try and shoot a wedding or action sports with this adaptor. Your buffer will fill up much quicker than card adaptor can write.

                                  Otherwise works perfect
