EOS 7D Mark II Wi-Fi Adapter Kit

Features

The Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1** is shaped like an SD card to easily insert in the SD card slot of the EOS 7D Mark II, EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R cameras in order to provide Wi-Fi® capabilities*. With the W-E1 installed in the SD card slot, a CompactFlash card must be installed into the camera’s dedicated CF card slot in order to record and store images. The W-E1 is currently only compatible with the EOS 7D Mark II, EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R cameras***.

* Compatible with iOS® versions 8.0/8.1/8.2/8.3/8.4/9.0/9.1/9.2/9.3, Android smartphone and tablet versions 4.1/4.2/4.3/4.4/5.0/5.1/6.0. Data charges may apply with the download of the free Canon Camera Connect app. This app helps enable you to upload images to social media services. Please note that image files may contain personally identifiable information that may implicate privacy laws. Canon disclaims and has no responsibility for your use of such images. Canon does not obtain, collect or use such images or any information included in such images through this app.

** The Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1 must be inserted into the available SD card slot. The W-E1 does not have storage and is not designed to record images. To record and store images, a CompactFlash card must be used in the dedicated CF card slot.

*** EOS 7D Mark II, EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R cameras that have already been purchased separately require a firmware update to utilize the Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1.

When inserted into the SD card slot of the EOS 7D Mark II, EOS 5DS or EOS 5DS R camera**, the Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1 provides the convenience and benefits of Wi-Fi® capability* when paired with a compatible smartphone or tablet that has the Camera Connect mobile app installed*. These Wi-Fi® functions include the ability to change camera settings on the fly, shoot still images remotely, as well as view and transfer images and MP4 videos****. For fast and reliable communication, the W-E1 supports Wi-Fi® standards of 802.11b/g/n at 2.4GHz with a range of up to 32.8 feet.

* Compatible with iOS® versions 8.0/8.1/8.2/8.3/8.4/9.0/9.1/9.2/9.3, Android smartphone and tablet versions 4.1/4.2/4.3/4.4/5.0/5.1/6.0.

**** The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R cameras do not feature MP4 capability therefore no video transfer option is available.

Ideal for working in the studio or on location, the W-E1 helps wirelessly enable SLR operation directly from a computer using Canon's EOS Utility software. It facilitates camera operations such as AF and setting changes as well as shutter release for still photographs, and also enables transfer of still photographs and MP4 movies**** stored on the camera's CF card.

**** The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R cameras do not feature MP4 capability therefore no video transfer option is available.

*** The Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1 must be inserted into the available SD card slot. The W-E1 does not have storage and is not designed to record images. To record and store images, a CompactFlash card must be used in the dedicated CF card slot.

1 Wireless communication may be terminated if the user operates the power switch, card slot cover, battery compartment cover or mode dial; starts Live View shooting or operates the movie shooting switch during wireless communication.
2 The communication distance for the Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1 is approximately 32.8 feet, making it shorter than the built-in Wi-Fi® communication distance of the EOS 80D camera (approx. 49.2 feet).
3 Because wireless communication speed can slow down or be interrupted when the grip is covered by a user’s hand, Wi-Fi® connection is not recommended while holding the grip.
