More details on the Canon WFT-E9A
Overview: The Canon WFT-E9A is a Wireless File Transmitter that lets you easily transfer captured images to an FTP server. You can automatically transfer the images as you shoot, or select images in the camera to be transferred later. The WFT-E9A attaches to the camera via the proprietary WFT connector, through which it also receives power from the camera. The transmitter's dustproof and waterproof construction is designed to withstand inclement weather, making it ideal for use in or out of the photo studio.
Camera Compatibility: The WFT-E9A is compatible with the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III camera, as well as the C500 Mark II Cinema Camera.
High Speed Wireless LAN Performance: With the WFT-E9A, you can get high-speed image transfer via IEEE 802.11ac, 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi, with 2x2 MIMO/ac/n/a/g/b wireless LAN support. Wireless connections are fast and secure for transferring RAW and HDR PQ HEIF files quickly and effortlessly. On the IEEE 802.11ac 2x2 MIMO standard, the WFT-E9A can transfer data at speeds of up to 867 Mbps, and 433 Mbps on the 802.11ac standard. That's almost three times faster than 802.11n. The transmission range is approximately 492 feet using an access point (with no obstructions or radio interference).
EOS Utility: With Canon's EOS Utility software loaded on your computer, you can download images stored in the camera, or perform remote shooting.
Browser Remote: With the WFT-E9A attached to the camera, you can perform advanced remote shooting, view images stored in the camera, and configure settings related to FTP transfer by connecting to the camera using a web browser on a computer, smartphone, tablet, or other device.
Note: Browser Remote is not available on the EOS-1D X Mark III with camera firmware Ver.1.0.0. With a firmware update from the Canon website, this function will be added.
Linked Shooting: You can link up to 10 receiver cameras to a sender camera on which you will release the shutter. As long as the camera supports linked shooting with WFT-E9A transmitter attached, you can use the camera as a receiver. Only still images can be taken during linked shooting, and there will a slight delay in the shutter release timing between the sender and receiver cameras. Movie shooting is not supported. You can also synchronize the camera time between the sender and receiver cameras of the same model. The maximum range for linked shooting is approximately 164 feet with no obstructions or interference.
Dimensions: The dimensions of the WFT-E9A are:
- Width: 0.997"
- Height: 2.551"
- Depth: 1.324"
