Hi TheBrew. Can you confirm if this will work only with a wifi router and can not do the same as with a wifi card adhoc connection? Thanks.

The "receiving while shooting" ("tethering") feature only works via a network, but you can browse and download if you initiate the built-in wi-fi network by pressing the 'Fn' button while in play-mode on the camera.

The workaround for tethering could be to let the camera join the Personal Hotspot -- if you're on an iOS device with cellular capability and a provider who allows you to do that. If you don't have that option, a mobile router should do the trick (although in that case it seems easier to just go with a wireless card).

Firmware update 4.00 adds this feature to the X-Pro 2, and it's fabulous! Thank you!!!
