Hi all,

One of the main reasons I purchased the D200 was because of the WiFi feature. Here's my situation.

I want my D200 to talk to my G4 Mac without a cord.
I want my images to go directly from my camera to my laptop which will about 7 feet away.

The event I will be shooting will require me to shoot about 350-500 shots under 25 minutes. I understand that transfer data off a WiFi is only as fast as the data transfer the ISP will allow.

Assuming I shoot raw or high jpeg, I am looking at 2.5meg+ files. I assume that the pictures obviously won't refresh onto the monitor realtime. My concern was that ALL the images get to hard-drive eventually.

Will a WT-3 transfer hundreds of files over time if I shoot that many in such a short amount of time? Or will the WT-3 ping out eventually, not letting all my photos get to a hard-drive.

My clients want a DVD burned ASAP after the event, and everyone knows how slow it takes to transfer a large file via... USB. Normally takes me about 23 minutes to transfer a 2gig CF card to my laptop. So I'd rather shoot on the fly and let it transfer.

Or does the file transfers via WiFi stop eventually? I can see how it can work taking some studio work, doing one shot at time or 5-10 per round. But how about mass amounts?

Also... Does WT-3 allow the user to acquire image into internet & CompactFlash card as well?
