The Canon WFT-E7 Wireless File Transmitter has been launched alongside the Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR to offer the ability to wirelessly transmit images from your camera to a computer – it gives enhanced remote capture, media server functionality, linked shooting, plus built-in Bluetooth connection functionality.
The new WFT-E7 unit takes the WiFi possibilities with the EOS 5D Mark III to new levels by offering advantages such as 802.11a/b/g and n compatibility, DLNA compliance, FTP, EOS Utility and WFT Server shooting, as well as Linked Shooting for remote shutter triggering of other WiFi-enabled EOS cameras.
Who is it for?
The WFT-E7 unit allows for the rapid transfer of images to an access point and out to a picture desk, making it great for sports and news photographers. Studio photographers will enjoy the ability to see previews of their images on a large screen by transmitting JPEGs to their computer. Some photographers will find the built-in Bluetooth compatibility useful as it allows them to use a Bluetooth connection to a GPS device for geo-tagging images. Those photographers who like experimenting with technology to push the boundaries of what is possible will find the Linked Shooting and advanced WFT Server modes especially appealing.
