The Canon WFT-E8A Wireless Transmitter is designed for use with the Canon 1D X Mark II. Key features include:

  • Fast, secure image transfer

  • Multiple image-transfer options

  • Remote camera control

  • Wireless time-syncing

The Canon WFT-E8A Wireless Transmitter is designed for use with the Canon 1D X Mark II.

Wireless LAN. Utilizing IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards over both 2.4GHz and 5GHz signals, the WFT-E8A provides fast yet secure image transfer performance.

Image Transfer Options. Images can be transferred via FTPtransfer, EOS Utility, WFT Server, or Canon Camera Connect app, the last of which also enable remote camera control.

Multi-Camera Linking. If you need to sync multiple 1DX Mark II cameras, you’ll definitely want to consider the WFT-E8A. The WFT transmitters offer wireless time syncing, giving you automatic chronological sequence of images shot across multiple cameras. If you’ve ever shot an event with multiple cameras where importing is off, you’ll know exactly how great this is.

Please Note: This isn’t a plug-and-play device. It requires an involved setup that may take some time and understanding of networking to perform, so please allow yourself time to read the manual and familiarize yourself with the process. We can only offer support for physically connecting the transmitter to the camera because its setup varies greatly depending on how your wireless network is configured. For a step-by-step tutorial, please see the Canon Digital Learning Center Setup Guide.

Compatible only with the Canon 1DX Mark II!
