Open up your Canon EOS-1D X Mark II to a wider world of connectivity with the WFT-E8 wireless transmitter. Featuring fast wireless LAN transmission thanks to IEEE 802.11ac compatibility, enhanced FTP transfer options and remote shooting, the WFT-E8 provides a host of additional functions to fully exploit the capabilities of the EOS-1D X Mark II.


Transferring images wirelessly

Thanks to its use of the newly adopted IEEE 802.11ac standard (5Ghz band) the WFT-E8 allows you to transfer data up to 150m away at high speeds. IEEE 802.11ac supports faster communication (around 2.5x in real-world use) than the IEEE 802.11n standard seen in the WFT-E6, with a theoretical speed of approx. 1300 Mbps versus the 450Mbps of IEEE 802.11n.


Remote shooting using a computer

Photographers can securely link to an FTP server remotely using the FTPS (File Transfer Protocol over SSL/TLS) and shoot and send images in real time, thus allowing you to minimise the time spent to collect, classify and upload images to a server.


WFT Server

You can shoot, review and playback images or movies remotely thanks to the WFT Server option within the WFT-E8. WFT Server is an update of the previously named HTTP mode and allows full control over the EOS-1D X Mark II camera settings - including focus, Live View, playback of movies and review of RAW images – so you can view what the camera sees and adjust settings on a remote computer, smartphone or tablet.


Canon’s Camera Connect app

The Canon Camera Connect app lets you connect to a smartphone or tablet for remote capture, review, rating, transfer and sharing of images when the camera needs to be placed out of reach, eg behind the goal at a football match or above a basketball hoop. Camera Connect can also shoot and transfer Full HD MP4 movie files.


Linked Shooting

From a master camera, you can link up to 10 slave cameras with the WFT-E8 or WFT-E7 transmitters for synchronised shooting up to 100m away. By use of the camera time sync function individual differences between camera clocks are eliminated, so the accurate shooting sequence can be determined.
