I'm about to get myself the Wi-Fi adapter w-e1 for my 7D II. The camera has two memoryslots, one for SD-card and one for CF-card. The Wifi adapter W-e1 goes into the SD slot of the cam. That leaves me with the CF slot for memory. Since I've all ready got a heap of SD cards, can I possibly use a adapter from CF to SD?
If not, I guess I'll just have to get myself a CF-card....just trying to save a few buck.
Do not bother with the Wi-Fi adapter card. I was disappointed with what it could do. If all you want to do is transfer in-camera JPEGs to social media, then it is perfect. Otherwise, for any other task, it will either do it poorly, or not at all.
As far as an adapter for SD card to use an CF slot, I have never heard of such of thing. I have never seen one for sale anywhere, Yet, there are plenty of posts in these forums of people trying to use one, only to discover that it not only does not work, but suddenly neither does their camera.
There are major design differences between CF and SD memory cards. The differences are so significant that the two are not interchangeable. Without getting to deep into the techno-babble, an SD card uses a serial communication bus. A CF card uses a parallel communication data bus, just like a memory chip would use.

Get an active USB cable. I use them all the time. I have used them as far away as 75 feet but other tell me they do even farther. I tether with Lightroom.
I don't know what you mean by watching "Live View" but a DSLR is not designed for constant video viewing. LR is great for controlling the camera and viewing the photos immediately on a larger screen.
IMHO, always use the right CF card recommended in your manual. Never use adapters as they are not recommended in your manual.
IMHO, never use wi-fi SD cards. Slow and clunky at best.

This is a bus-powered extension cable that can be used to increase the length of USB without any signal loss or potential performance problems. It contains electronics, which boost the USB signal for maximum reliability and performance over extended distances. There is no extra software or power or devices needed. You might want to get a jerk strap though.
