FTP Transfer Transfer images over a network to FTP servers
EOS Utility EOS Utility-based control of cameras over a network
WFT Server Browser-based remote capture and downloading of images over a network
Linked Shooting Wirelessly trigger shooting by slave cameras linked to a master camera
Transmission Range Approx. 328 ft. / 100 m from the master camera (when signal strength is favorable)
Camera Connection System extension terminal
Wired Lan Connection Ethernet RJ-45 port
External Device Connection Hi-Speed USB port (for attaching external media, GPS devices, and Bluetooth units) * Devices can be bus-powered.
Power Supply Powered by the camera
Image Transfer Capacity
At normal temperature (73°F/23°C)
At low temperature (32°F/0°C)
Using a fully charged LP-E4.
Under Camera & Imaging Products Association (CIPA) conditions for testing shooting capacity, when using automatic image transfer with images that are approximately 6MB.
Fewer images can be transferred if the wireless LAN transfer rate drops, and for consecutive image transfer over wireless LAN.
Fewer images can be transferred when using bus-powered external media or GPS devices.
If the remaining battery level drops below 19%, captured images cannot be transferred or backed up to external media.

Having used the Wft-E1a's on my Mk2's this was easy to setup and configure. I like the speed and added options that are available. I've got one of these for each of my bodies.

I love it
It's a great product. Plenty of setup options to use. I have it linked to my studio PC, my laptop and iPad. It's compact, easy to attach no problems with the setup if your using the EOS WFT software for your PC or MAC. Once you understand the setup and optioning, it's a terrific compliment the camera especially when working in the field or at client sites.

I have owned this for a year.
The setup and configuration is a ridiculous and unnecessary exercise in frustration. I am knowledgeable in computers, I have an 8 computer LAN with both pc's and Macs plus some IP video cameras and two NAS servers as well as 3 wireless access points and I have had no problems in set up and maintenance until this WFT E2 came along. In this day and age it is ridiculous to produce wireless devices that require this level of setup and to market them with inadequate reference materials. Canon makes great cameras but this is a failure not only in setup and documentation but in use as it is slow and clunky even with a high speed network.
If you are considering one of these just make sure that you positively need a wireless device otherwise you will never use it.
