The wireless  
capabilities of my 
Canon file transmitters 
and Canon Speedlite  
flashes streamline  
my creative workflow. 
The file transmitter 
allows wardrobe  
stylists, make-up  
artists, and clients to  
see my results "in the 
moment" and my 
wireless Speedlite 
makes lighting changes 
a snap. I love 'em!

Linked Multi-Camera Shooting – Using multiple 
WFT units on compatible EOS digital cameras, 
up to ten slave/remote cameras can be linked  
wirelessly to a master camera. Connections are 
made simply and conveniently via wireless LAN. 
Remote camera shutters are automatically 
tripped when the master camera shutter is 
released. With such a setup, a photographer 
can, for example, shoot simultaneously from 
various angles.
Built-in Wireless and NFC with  
Camera Connect App
Select EOS cameras incorporate 
sophisticated capabilities into 
their compact and lightweight 
design with built-in Wi-Fi
NFC (Near Field Communication) 
technology. With the Camera Connect App
built-in wireless technology, the camera can 
connect directly to a compatible smartphone
for remote operation. Exposure settings, focus 
and shutter can be operated wirelessly, so that 
images can be reviewed, rated, deleted, filed 
and transferred. Full DLNA (Digital Living 
Network Alliance) compatibility means easy 
sharing between the EOS camera and other 
DLNA certified products, like HDTVs, game  
consoles and more. Images from the camera 
can be uploaded instantly to CANON iMAGE 
 for easy sharing and photos can 
even be printed directly and wirelessly to 
PictBridge (Wirelesss LAN) certified printers 
without the need for a PC. Built-in NFC  
technology enables virtually seamless  
connection to your compatible smart device 
installed with the Camera Connect app,  
establishing a Wi-Fi
 connection for quick, easy 
sharing of your images.
Built-in GPS Transmitter
With built-in GPS
, the EOS 6D 
and EOS 7D Mark II cameras can 
record longitude, latitude and 
altitude data as EXIF data, have a logging 
function that can track movement at set 
intervals, and can even set the camera’s 
internal clock to local time!
Expandable Accessories
The GPS Receivers GP-E1
 and GP-E2
 attach to 
the select EOS cameras. The receivers offer the 
same dust and waterproof protection as the 
camera body itself; the GP-E2 even features its 
own power supply. GPS Receiver GP-E2 can also 
connect to the select EOS cameras via hot shoe 
or a digital terminal. Canon GPS receivers are 
always ready to append location data to images. 
They record latitude, longitude/elevation and 
Wireless File Transmitter
computer for advanced two-way communication 
and professional tethered camera operation. 
WFT units can also connect to select GPS
adding location and time code shooting data. 
Plus, WFT models can be used as remote control 
receivers, allowing for wireless shooting and 
control, from a range of wireless-enabled handheld 
devices, including compatible smartphones. 
USB Host Capability with GPS Support –  
Photographers can take full advantage of the 
WFT unit’s USB host capability* by connecting a 
compatible GPS device via USB cable or optional 
Bluetooth dongle. This makes it possible to add 
GPS coordinates, altitude and UTC time code to 
embedded shooting data within image files. 
Compatible GPS units include several in 
Garmin’s GPSMAP series and in the Magellan 
eXplorist series (using NMEA 0183 v.2.0.1 
output data standard or “Garmin protocol”). 
USB Host capability also allows connectivity 
to some external hard drives for added 
storage options. 
Weather-Resistant Design –The WFT units 
designed for the EOS-1D class professional 
DSLR cameras feature rugged and lightweight  
magnesium alloy bodies, just like the cameras 
to which they attach. Moreover, they feature 
the same fully sealed construction, helping to 
that the highly weather-resistant design 
of the camera is not compromised. 
Extensive Wired and Wireless LAN Functions –  
Select WFT units not only support wireless 
LAN environments but also enable wired** 
network connections, providing high-speed 
100Base-TX communication (the WFT-E7A 
supports 1000Base-T). Built-in WPS (Wi-Fi 
Protected Setup) makes it easy to make secure 
LAN connections. 
  To use the older model WFT-E7A (not Version 2), the 
firmware must be updated and Interface Cable  
IFC-40AB II or IFC-150AB II must be used.
  The WFT-E6A and WFT-E7A provide an internal Bluetooth 
function but do not have USB host capability. A 
dedicated GP-E1 accessory is available for the EOS-1D X. 
USB Host functionality is available only on the WFT-E2 II A, 
WFT-E5A, and WFT-E4A.
  The WFT-E6A has no provision for wired LAN connectivity 
because the EOS-1D X is equipped with a Gigabit 
Ethernet port.
  1 This software enables you to upload images to social 
network services. Before uploading images, please be 
aware that image files may contain privacy related  
information such as people and places. If necessary, 
please delete such information. Canon does not obtain, 
collect or use such images or any information included 
in such images through this software. 
 Compatible with iOS version 5.0 or later and Android 
devices version 2.3/4.0 or later. Data charges may apply. 
 One-time registration is required on CANON iMAGE 
GATEWAY online photo album.
  The GP-E1 does not require any additional USB or 
Bluetooth connections to communicate with the 
EOS-1D X. The EOS 5D Mark III requires a firmware 
upgrade to be compatible with the GPS Receiver 
GP-E2, which is now available.
  In certain countries and regions, the use of GPS may be 
restricted. Therefore, be sure to use GPS in accordance 
with the laws and regulations of your country or region. 
Be particularly careful when traveling outside your home 
country. As a signal is received from GPS satellites, 
take sufficient measures when using in locations where 
the use of electronics is regulated.
Wireless Transmitter Technology
As quickly as the DSLR 
camera has become  
commonplace in the 
hands of professional  
photographers and 
enthusiasts alike, so 
too has wireless 
progressed between 
the camera and external 
components. The EOS 
DSLR cameras have a 
number of dedicated  
Wireless File Transmitters that keep the 
camera wirelessly connected with tremendous 
speed. Whether connected through a port on 
the side of the camera, or incorporated into a 
camera-integrated design – some units serve 
as an auxiliary handgrip – Canon Wireless 
Transmitters can connect securely to Local 
Area Networks (LAN) wirelessly (with a range 
up to approximately 500 feet) or directly, and 
can connect and upload to FTP (File Transfer 
Protocol) or dedicated WFT Servers. 
Fast, Reliable Image Data Transfer– The 
WFT-E6A, WFT-E7A and WFT-E7A Ver. 2 feature 
a/b/g compatibility, WPS compatibility, WFT 
Server Remote Live View, a camera linking 
function and Bluetooth connectivity. The 
WFT-E6A and WFT-E7A conform to IEEE 802.11 
a/b/g/n standards, performing up to 2.5x 
faster (for the WFT-E6A) and up to 3x faster (for 
the WFT-E7A) than other models, and feature an 
image resend feature that helps ensure that all 
images get transferred, even if wireless signal 
drops interrupt transmission. 
Media Server Function – Models such as the 
WFT-E7A, WFT-E6A and WFT-E5A also include  
a media server function. With all models, in WFT 
Server mode, up to three separate computers 
can access the camera’s memory card using a 
standard web browser from virtually anywhere 
in the world. Images can be selected from the 
browser window and dragged onto a computer’s 
desktop or to a folder, which copies the full file 
to a computer. Remote firing of the camera over 
the Internet is also possible using the Remote 
Live View function. Select EOS cameras also 
allow a dedicated media server to be created 
with DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) 
compliant devices, allowing numerous points of 
access to images instantaneously. 
Computer Connectivity – EOS Utility Mode, or 
PTP (Point-to-Point) connectivity, allows the 
photographer to connect a single camera to a 
UTC time, and feature GPS Time Sync Function 
and even an electronic compass that records 
the camera’s orientation when shooting
