Thank all for the feedback, but if you read my post I want to transfer FROM PC (or any other device USB or Mac) to iPhone. Not the other way around.
Thanks every one for your feedback, but I am trying to copy FROM PC TO iPhone... not form iPhone to PC.
I didn't like the complications of iTune and sync issue I have had in the past with multiple iPhones in the household.
My kids gave me a new iPhone for Christmas. I had an old Samsung/Android which I had no problems with and was very comfortable using it. In any event, I was surprised that I had to use iTunes to manage my photos and albums on the iPhone. On my Samsung once I connected via USB to my PC the phone appeared as a drive and I could copy/move/delete/create folder etc like any other drive. Very disappointing I could not do the same with the iPhone.
So, after research and I haven't' found a rock solid solution just a lot of ads for apps, including a Microsoft solution. I am willing to pay for the app, if it's not really expensive. I rather not go the route of moving photo to third party (Goggle, DropBox, etc.) and then download to the iPhone. I just want to transfer photo to/from my PC and iPhone. If you have an iPhone with one of these apps I could use your advise.
Also, I haven't found a creditable site that reviewed/compared these third party apps.

It's been a few years since your post and I am wondering if you have been able to find a solution that works. I have been checking out the Canon Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1, but as far as I can tell once enable it totally disables the functions on the actual camera. I am looking for a simple tethering solution to get rid of the wires and give me a bigger display (iPad or laptop) to view the images.
I understand the value and need for remote controlling the camera (macro or still photography), but not what I am looking for.
Any advise if appreciated.
What about IS??? Will we need to shutdown off the IS in the lens? How will it work with the adapter? Which IS will yield the better image stabilization?
That's what GM and Ford said about Japanese cars
Good one Rich1939, LOL. Could start another thread on that topic.
Can we get back to what Canon's plans might be. Not much when I Goggle it. There camp is keep it pretty tight so far.
What are some of the mirrorless distinct advantages over DSLR?
Thanks for the feedback. I realized you can not replicate the authentic film. If I could I'd make a few $$$ out of it and finally pay for some of the stuff I buy. But, I was hoping to get close with a little help from a plugin. I am not proficient enough with LR to even come close to getting the look I wanted. So, I think I'll take the plunge this weekend and purchase the RNI or Gavin plugin and report back.
