About Canon WFT-E6A

The Canon WFT-E6A Wireless Transmitter is an impressive device that boasts several upgrades over earlier permutations. Designed specifically for use with Canon's EOS-1D X, this transmitter offers wireless-only LAN functionality for ease when transferring data. It also now supports IEEE 802.11n for safe, fast wireless LAN transfers. Additionally, an internal Bluetooth function (Bluetooth v2.1 + EDR) is included for a secure connection to Bluetooth-compatible GPS devices for high-capacity data transfers.

The WFT-E6A also sports wireless time syncing now, which is a great advantage to those shooting events, allowing you to make adjustments to the device without having a direct connection to a computer. And in another upgrade, the WFT-E6A is also lighter and smaller than earlier models. It still features the same dustproof and waterproof capabilities it's older siblings have. In addition, the transmitter is able to link up to 10 cameras for numerous points of view on a single subject - but now with improved linkage to a WFT server by allowing it to start simultaneously when the master camera and slave cameras are manually connected.

Canon WFT-E6A Features

  • Upgraded Wireless LAN Function: The WFT-E6A is compatible with the EOS-1D X and offers a wireless-only LAN function for enhanced versatility when transferring data
  • Supports IEEE 802.11n and has Internal Bluetooth Function: Canon developed the WFT-E6A to support IEEE 802.11n, which provides seamless wireless transfers of large files at a speed roughly 3x faster. For even more versatility, an internal Bluetooth function (Bluetooth v2.1 + EDR) is included
  • New Wireless Time Syncing: Syncing cameras just got easier with the WFT-E6A's wireless time syncing feature. Although time synchronization can be performed by the EOS-1D X via wired LAN connection, the WFT-E6A provides the option to do it wirelessly
  • Compact, Durable and Lightweight Construction: Offering a compact design, the WFT-E6A is lighter and smaller. Built to withstand inclement weather, this transmitter has the same dustproof and waterproof construction used in the EOS-1D X body
  • Enhanced Linked Multi-Camera Shooting: No different from other wireless file transmitters, the WFT-E6A still retains the linked multi-camera shooting function. It's possible to link up to 10 cameras to take a picture of one subject simultaneously

WFT-E6A Works Great

By

from Kansas City, Mo.  -  Professional

I've got one of these for ech one of my 1Dx's. These are the best wft's Canon has made. They are faster and will resend automatically if disconnected. I use these for everything from sports to weddings for immediate review of images. I've been using WFT's on all my 1 series cameras since 2007. I would not be without these on a paid shoot. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Questions about this item:

MARK L  Is this the correct device for wireless control of a Canon C300 digital cinema camera?
Andrew R  Unfortunately no, this unit is for wireless transfer of data only.
Hernan C  Once the camera is connect through the WFT-E6A, how do we make Lightroom to display the photos soon after the camera takes the picture? I have tried by setting the folder but nothing happens
HENDERS H  You have to set a "hot folder" in lightroom or phaseone software Capture one sofware is way faster at viewing jpegs sent from WFT
Hernan C  After I have connected the 1dx canon camera to my computer through the WFT-E6A Wireless Transmiter, how can I see immediately the photos as I shoot them in my macpro using light room in it? I want to try using wireless instead of theater wires. THanks for your help!
NANCY S  Get in touch with Gary Box, Cr. Photog in Sapulpa, Oklahoma. He's written "Shooting Wirelessly from Canon to pad" (8 1/2" x 11") There are complete instructions, photos of settings and how he uses the ipad with clients. I couldn't have done it without the book. It walks you through the process, and is very worth the price. Do ask him if the book covers your equipment. Nancy Salisbury
