Wireless File Transmitters & Adapters


It's easy to connect the EOS 5D Mark II and WFT-E4 II A to a computer via a wired or wireless setup. Whether with a Pushbutton Configuration (PBC Method), Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) PIN Method, or through a camera-controlled connection wizard, connections are achieved quickly, simply and securely. No matter the location, there's a connection protocol appropriate for the parameters of the shoot.
The EOS 5D Mark II with WFT-E4 II A attached can pair with a computer for remote Live View composing, shooting and image transfer. This means easy control of the shoot through a computer, netbook, iPod Touch or iPhone, onsite or off, and is a simple and effective way to confirm and shoot no matter the physical location of the subject and photographer.
With the WFT-E4 II A, users have a number of different options for image transfer both on and offsite. When connected to an offsite server, it's simple to set the camera and WFT-E4 II A to shoot and upload images directly through fast IEEE 802.11 a/b/g networks. Images can simultaneously be saved to the camera or to a tethered hard drive.
GPS devices can be connected to the WFT-E4 II A to transmit location and elevation data along with the EXIF data for each image. With Bluetooth, photographers can fully employ GPS units without the concern of tangled wires, and can connect directly to Bluetooth compatible printers. With USB, the WFT-E4 II A can even be setup for direct recording to an external storage device.
Camera linking with the WFT-E4 II A attached makes it possible for up to 10 cameras to shoot simultaneously. Up to 10 cameras can be connected independent of a network, and set up to take a shot the instant the shutter is released on the Master (Main) camera. With an effective range up to approximately 330 feet, this linked shooting is invaluable for multi-angle coverage.



Image transfer accessory compatible with IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g wireless LAN and Ethernet (wired LAN) (IPsec-compatible). Can be connected via USB to external media, GPS devices and Bluetooth units.
