Wireless LAN support for IEEE802.11 a/b/g/n, delivering ultra-fast image transfer speed
The WFT-E7A is compatible with the EOS 5D Mark III SLR and offers a wireless-only LAN function for enhanced versatility when transferring data. It supports IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n network connections, providing safer and faster wireless LAN transfers. It has a new image resend feature that ensures all images get transferred, even if a wireless signal drop interrupts transmission.
Wireless connectivity is gradually becoming an industry standard; many photographers are seeking convenient methods to transfer important image data securely and faster without the use of cables and wires. Canon developed the new WFT-E7A to support IEEE 802.11n, which provides seamless wireless transfers of large files at a speed roughly 3x faster than IEEE 802.11 a/g.
Support for wired LAN Ethernet-1000BASE-T for high speed communication
For wired connections, the WFT-E7A supports Gigabit (LAN Ethernet-1000BASE-T) as well. For circumstances that do not allow for a wireless transfer, this option is ideal for photographers who want secure and even faster data transfers.
Enhanced linked multi-camera shooting
The Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E7A offers enhanced linked multi-camera shooting-It`s possible to link up to 10 cameras to take a picture of one subject simultaneously. It has improved linkage to a WFT server allowing it to start simultaneously when the master camera and slave cameras are manually connected. Each slave camera will have its own IP address to gain access to the server allowing the user to conveniently browse and load images. If desired, when the user accesses the master camera to release the shutter, the slave cameras, in turn, will perform the same.
Media server (DLNA) supported
Canon understands the needs of EOS DSLR camera users to have a wide range of options when handling and viewing their images on a variety of devices as electronics become more connected than ever before. Now, the Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E7A can transfer images through a local area network connection to a DLNA Certified� device. DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) makes it possible for a range of electronics to work seamlessly together regardless of brand. If desired, photographers can easily and conveniently view their images (JPEG only) stored on the EOS DSLR camera on a TV or mobile device.
Wireless time synching
Synching cameras is simple with the Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E7A`s wireless time synching feature. Capable of synching time on up to ten EOS 5D Mark III`s, the WFT-E7A enables recording of a timed succession of images from different sources and can be saved with a dependable level of precision. Event photographers will find this feature especially helpful as it`s now possible to make time adjustments without having to connect directly to a computer.
Bluetooth-compatible GPS devices can be connected wirelessly
For even more versatile connectivity, an internal Bluetooth function (Bluetooth v2.1 + EDR) allows the transmitter to have a secure connection to third-party Bluetooth compatible GPS devices, making it possible to append location information for each file during high-volume data transfers.
USB terminal for easy connectivity
A USB terminal provides a fast and easy connection between the Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E7A and the EOS 5D Mark III. The EOS Utility software`s features can be used when connected via USB so no matter the situation, you`ll be able to have a fully functional workflow.
