Best way to make Canon T3 wi-fi enabled?

Hello Forum!

 

Question: Can someone provide suggestions about making my Canon T3 wi-fi enabled?

 

As far as I can tell there are two options:

 

1). A wi-fi adapter that you can plug the sd card into.

2). A wi-fi enabled sd memory card.

 

Thank you in advance.

Yep.  Eye-Fi Card is about it.  See Page 230 of your manual.

Wi-Fi SD cards are terrible.  The leading manufacturer of them went out of business.  I wonder why.

 

I do not know if the external Wi-Fi adapter works with the T3, but I do know that it costs more than the camera.  You would be MUCH better off buying an updated camera with built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.  The Bluetooth makes the Wi-Fi setup a breeze.

 

However, understand this.  A Wi-Fi enabled camera does not mean that it is fully networkable.  All that it really means is that the camera can communicate wirelessly with other wireless devices using standard Wi-Fi frequencies and protocols.

 

I do not know what functionality you expect from having Wii-Fi, but be prepared to be disappointed.  On all but the most expensive camera bodies, built-in Wi-Fi is somewhat limited, and SLOW.

I agree with Waddizzle, I bought a wifi card years ago and it was very disappointing and very slow...I have not used it since. I think the one I tried was from Eye-Fi or something like that I know it is lying around collecting dust somewhere and destined for eBay at some point.

A wi-fi card seems to be the only option, your first point would only enable a standard SD card to be wi-fi when inserted into an wifi adapter, not the camera. Once you remove the SD card you might as well use a computer that would allow you to share the contents via wi-fi or Bluetooth or direct.

No, I can't because it is a very bad idea.  It will never work like you think normal wi-fi does.
