The new WFT-E5 unit takes the Wi-Fi possibilities with the EOS 7D to a new level by offering advantages such as, 802.11a/b and g compatibility, DLNA compliance, an improved HTTP mode called WFT Server and Linked Shooting for remote shutter triggering of up to 10 other EOS 7D cameras.
Great for sports and news photographers the WFT-E5 unit will allow rapid transfer of images to an access point and out to a picture desk. However, it is not just for the photojournalist community. 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 Bluetooth compatibility that allows them to use a Bluetooth connection to a GPS device for geo-tagging, and those photographers who like to experiment with technology to push the boundaries of what is possible will find the linked shooting and advanced WFT Server modes especially appealing.
