Canon’s new Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E9A makes wired and wireless data transfer setups simple and easy. Compatible with the new EOS-1DX Mark III camera, the WFT-E9A supports IEEE 802.11ac 2X2 MIMO/ac/a/n/g/b for fast and secure connections, helping you to quickly and effortlessly transfer RAW and HDR PQ HEIF files. By using the FTP transfer and Browser Remote*, you can check the image at the same time as you are shooting – even from a faraway distance. With fast communication speed, expanded versatility and an enhanced user interface, the WFT-E9A not only boasts incredible speed, but also streamlines wireless photography configurations, whether in the studio or on location.
Connecting to wireless Local Area Networks (LAN) via standards of IEEE 802.11ac 2X2 MIMO/ac/a/n/g/b on both 2.4 and 5 GHz bands, the Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E9A can communicate on the IEEE 802.11ac standard. On this fast standard, the WFT-E9A can transfer data at speeds of up to 867 Mbps on the IEEE 802.11 ac 2x2 MIMO, and 433 Mbps on IEEE 802.11 ac, almost three times faster than on the IEEE 802.11n standard, at a range of up to 492 ft.
The Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E9A offers a number of convenient ways to transfer images based on the location, available equipment and the task at hand. Image transfer directly from the camera to local or offsite servers is facilitated via easily configurable FTP transfer. With Canon's refined EOS Utility software installed on a PC, full-featured Live View remote shooting and image transfer are made simple. Accessed through a browser on a computer, tablet or compatible smartphone, Canon's WFT Server enables offsite still and movie capture without the need for additional software. Plus, IPTC (International Press Telecommunication Council) metadata, which was previously editable only with EOS Utility when connected with an interface cable, can now be edited with Browser Remote*.
* Browser Remote will be supported through firmware update after shipping.
The Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E9A provides a fast throughput for image uploading and a revamped user interface to help enable speedy set-up and configuration of wireless networks. This compact and powerful transmitter also makes it simple to use a compatible smartphone as a remote control for still and video capture – even from a distance of approximately 32.8 feet. Plus, it can transfer recorded images back for viewing on the EOS-1D X Mark III camera’s screen.
The Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E9A makes it ideal to take along for just about any activity due to its lightweight and compact design. Built to withstand inclement weather, this transmitter has the same dustproof and waterproof construction used in the EOS-1D X Mark III camera body. A durable design helps ensure that equipment can be safely used in various conditions, making the WFT-E9A an ideal accessory for demanding photographers constantly on the move.
