Product Details


The WFT-E1 Wireless File Transmitter is designed to enable photographers to transfer their images from their camera through a wireless network to a computer, whilst not interfering with the process of taking pictures. The key advantage is to provide a faster workflow for professional photographers, allowing them to concentrate on the process of picture taking while the transfer happens automatically in the background. The WFT-E1 takes its settings from the camera itself. So if you have multiple cameras they can all be set up individually and simply by plugging the WFT-E1 in, the device will then collect the settings from the camera and connect to the network accordingly. This means that if you are shooting with two or three cameras you might only need a single wireless LAN transmitter and just plugging it into the camera means it will start transmitting as per the set-up for that individual camera.


  • Studio
    We have the studio category where, particularly with the EOS-1Ds Mark II and even more so with the 20D for portraits, it will enable the preview of images on a large screen much more easily and quickly whilst the shoot is taking place. The lack of wires in the studio allow the photographer to move around the studio with greater freedom whilst preventing models and photographers falling over loose trailing cables. So this is an area where we see a high usage for this unit. 
  • Sports
    The second application is within sports photography, particularly where it’s in an arena or, indoor sport where there is fairly controlled and confined activity. Here it is possible to set-up multiple access points for the network and the cameras then can just be shooting. They’ll connect to the appropriate network device and send the images straight from the touchline of the football pitch or the baseline of the tennis court. 
  • News and Fashion 
    For news events, fashion shows or premieres the ability to get the pictures delivered to the editor quickly is essential. And so a photographer shooting from the photographer’s pit or location could be wirelessly transmitting the images to a colleague either inside the building or even possibly outside it - it depends on the network range. So those images are much more rapidly available for publication. 
  • Events - weddings, parties, etc.
    In event photography, weddings, parties, or social gatherings, the idea is of a photographer being there concentrating on the moment. But while he’s shooting, the pictures are automatically transferred off to a computer where they can be previewed or even printed on the spot. It’s ideal for a ‘pay for print’ situation.
