Many don't like it because you're simply putting extra wear/tear on the batteries for the transfer.

Some cameras also have poor USB implementation and as such are quite slow at transferring files via USB.



Personally I'm not so concerned about wear and tear on batteries, they can be replaced, I'm more concerned about wear and tear on connectors and USB look a lot more fragile than CF connectors so that's an argument for removing the CF card and plugging it into a card reader. Hey ho, trade-offs wherever you look.

It's almost a shame that NFC (Near Field Communication) technology hasn't been more forthcoming.

Sony demonstrated a camera some years ago that you sat on small pad next to your computer (with no direct electrical contacts) and there were induction coils (or something similar) in the camera that provided enough power to transfer the images without using any battery power on the camera, albeit at a slower speed than USB.

Some sort of dock that would do this would, I imagine, be something people would buy especially if it charged the camera at the same time (if needed).
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

Interestingly an article on Canon Rumors published today has hinted at NFC for the successor to the 6D:

Interesting, thanks. NFC wouldn't be a feature to interest me, WIFI (already on some models) or Bluetooth for data transfer would be more interesting but only when I feel the need to change my camera for more important reasons - higher ISO/dynamic range, better auto-focusing, better burst speed. I'm sure I'll be happy with my 5DIII for at least another couple of years.

I use a 5DIII with wifi on it.... Cost around £50. I've talked about it before in the forums so search for it or google 'DSLR controller'. Sorry I have no idea how it got from 1DX to a 5D III with wifi?.... I must have missed a few posts
