Canon WFT Unit helps professionals to fire up to 10 cameras simultaneously for a split-second shot from multiple angles
Canon today announced a step forward in the digital integration of professional photography workflows with the introduction of three new Wireless File Transmitter units to accompany each of Canon’s three professional Digital SLR Camera models. The new Canon WFT-E2 II A Wireless File Transmitter, WFT-E4 II A Wireless File Transmitter and WFT-E5A Wireless File Transmitter for the EOS-1D Mark IV, EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 7D, respectively, provide professional photographers with a range of innovative wireless connectivity options for all photographic disciplines. By coupling each compatible camera with one of the new WFT units, professionals can fire up to 10 cameras simultaneously with Canon’s new Camera Linking function, which is perfect for getting split-second shot from multiple angles.
The new Canon Wireless File Transmitter units enable the roaming photojournalist or back-country nature photographer to geotag images easily through hard-wired or Bluetooth-connected GPS devices and append coordinates to the image’s EXIF data. The Canon WFT-E4 II A Wireless File Transmitter and WFT-E5A Wireless File Transmitter are currently available at an estimated retail price of $699.99i each. The WFT-E2 II A Wireless File Transmitter is scheduled to be available in the first quarter of 2010, price to be determined.
