Canon WFT-E6B (WFTE6B) Wireless Transmitter for EOS 1D X (Canon p/n 5756B002AA)
The Canon WFT-E6 Wireless File Transmitter has been launched alongside the Canon EOS-1D X DSLR to offer the ability to wirelessly transmit images from your camera to a computer – it gives enhanced remote capture, media server functionality, linked shooting, plus built-in Bluetooth connection functionality.
The new WFT-E6 unit takes the WiFi possibilities with the EOS-1D X to a new level by offering advantages such as 802.11a/b/g and n compatibility, DLNA compliance, FTP, EOS Utility and WFT Server shooting, as well as Linked Shooting for remote shutter triggering of other WiFi-enabled EOS-1D X cameras.
Who is it for?
Great for sports and news photographers the WFT-E6 unit will allow rapid transfer of images to an access point and out to a picture desk. However, It is not just for news and sports photographers as studio photographers will enjoy the ability to see previews of their images on a large screen by transmitting JPEGs to their computer. Travel, landscape and wildlife photographers will like the built-in Bluetooth compatibility that allows them to use a Bluetooth connection to a GPS device for geo-tagging, and those photographers who like experimenting with technology to push the boundaries of what is possible will find the linked shooting and advanced WFT Server modes especially appealing.
