    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,

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

        A very nice option if you have a camera that uses Compact Flash, but you want the convenience of an SD card, as most laptops have an SD card reader built in. The card is pretty thick, but still fits into the Compact Flash slot well enough, albeit a little bit snug.

          I use this to be able to use SD cards in my Tascam HS P82 pro audio mixer which is CF only. By using SD cards it saves money for cards but is much easier downloading when you can insert directly into a lap top with a SD reader built in. I use fast SD cards and have never had a problem recording as many as 8 channels of 48K, 24 bit sound files.

            Easy way to use lower cost SD card in some cameras. Works well in my Canon 7D where the CF slot is thicker and accommodates this Adapter. Bought this to be able to use the new Western Digital Wireless Passport external drive that will only read SD cards for travel backup and not have to carry a laptop. When I travel I want to have at least 2 original copies all files made stored apart from each other.

                  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

                  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.!

                      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 use this in my old 5D to stop having to drag around a card reader when i use both of my cameras. Works like a charm and very easy to just pop it in my MBP.

                                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).
