Many photographers use PM with wireless transmitters successfully.  Basically you set up your computer to be a FTP server (with software other than PM--PM does not offer a FTP server service) and set your camera to send photos to your computer to a folder of your choice.  Then you use Live Ingest in PM to monitor that folder.  Live Ingest will then download, rename, apply IPTC Stationery, etc. as your images arrive.
