Overview: The Canon Connect Station CS100 is a wireless hub that lets
you store you photos and videos. The device is equipped with a high capacity
hard drive with a huge amount of
digital storage. Photos and videos can be transferred either by USB or
wirelessly from your camera or to your printer. You can also connect the unit with an HDMI cable
to your TV. The CS100 comes with a wireless remote control to help you navigate
the menus and find and select photos and videos.
1 TB of Storage: The CS100 has one terabyte (1 TB equals about 1000
GB) of storage dedicated exclusively to photos and videos. That enough to hold
approximately 150,000 photos (based on about 6.6MB for each photo) or
approximately 70 hours of Full HD video content (avg. 32Mbps). This allows you
to quickly transfer the contents of your memory cards and start filling them up
again with more photos.
Wi-Fi/NFC: The Canon Connect Station has built-in Wi-Fi to let you
connect your camera wirelessly. For NFC-equipped Canon cameras and camcorders,
you can simply tap the device to the CS100 for automatic importing your photos
and videos. Previously imported photos and videos are recognized, so you won't
inadvertently transfer multiple copies, which wastes space. If your Canon camera does not have Wi-Fi or NFC, you can connect it
via your camera's USB cable.
Compatibility: Wireless image transfer is compatible only
with Canon cameras and camcorders equipped with NFC and released in 2015 and
later. Transfers via USB and is possible with Canon cameras and camcorders
released in 2010 and later.
Memory Card Slots: You can transfer photos and videos stored on
certain types of memory cards to the CS100. Slots are provided for CompactFlash
and SD Memory cards on the front panel of the unit, behind a removable rubber
cover. Supported cards include: CF card (Type I or II), SD memory card, SDHC
memory card, and SDXC memory cards (UHS-I not compatible). CFast cards are not
Organization: Once your photos and videos are loaded onto
the CS100, they are automatically organized by date (month and year) or
according to the shooting device. This gives you the ability to easily find
specific photos or videos, and share them with others. A simple menu system
allows you to easily create photo and video albums to help you find them easier.
HDMI: A full-sized HDMI output is provided for connecting the CS100 to
your TV. The device must be connected to a TV so you can operate it while
looking at the TV screen. The TV must have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 or 1280 x
720. TVs with lower resolutions are not compatible. Once connected to a TV, the
CS100 can play back still images in up to Full HD resolution in slide show
fashion. High bit-rate videos will play smoothly. You can specify the image
transition time (2, 4, 6, or 8 seconds) and the type of transition between
images (none or crossfade).
Backups: The Connect Station CS100 provides a secure way to store and
backup all of your photos and videos. Instead of keeping your library on your
laptop or desktop, you can store them in the 1 TB memory of the Connect Station.
You can also make a copy or restore your photos and videos by connecting the
CS100 to an external USB HDD.
Compatible Formats: The CS100 will accept photos and videos recorded
in various file formats. The device will support JPEG, RAW (Canon's CR2 format
only), MP4, MOV, and AVCHD file formats.
Web Browser: You can access, manage, view, and transfer your photos
and videos using a web browser. Devices such as a smartphone, tablet, or
