Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
Designed specifically for the Canon EOS 7D, the WFT-E5A Wireless LAN grip functions both as a wireless file transmitter and as an auxiliary handgrip. Supporting 5.2 GHz 802.11a (54Mbps), it's the fastest wireless transmitter on the market. The WFT-E5A allows full access to the camera's ports and maintains weather resistance and durability while offering prompt wired or wireless communications between the camera and appropriate transmitter, whether computer, mobile phone, or even an iPod.
Extensive Wired and Wireless LAN functions - Connecting the camera with WFT-E5A attached to a wired or wireless network couldn't be simpler. There are three ways to connect: With a Pushbutton Configuration (PBC Method), Wireless Protected Setup (WPS) PIN Method, or with a connection wizard through EOS Utility on the camera. No matter the situation or the level of security necessary, the WFT-E5A is designed to provide safe, speedy connections.
Remote Live View - With the WFT-E5A, and Canon EOS Utility, photographers can pair their camera wirelessly through a browser or dedicated software for complete remote Live View composing, shooting and image transfer. This means easy control of the shoot through a computer, netbook, iPod Touch or iPhone, onsite or off, and is a simple and effective way to confirm and shoot no matter the physical location of the subject and photographer.
USB Host Capability with GPS Support - GPS devices can be connected to the WFT-E5A to transmit location and EXIF data for each image. With Bluetooth, photographers can fully employ GPS units without the concern of tangled wires and can connect directly to Bluetooth printers. With a USB connection, not only are GPS connections possible, connections to a hard drive for direct recording or backup are possible as well.
DLNA Compatibility - The WFT-E5A is compatible with all Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) compliant devices. With the WFT-E5A, the EOS 7D can create a dedicated DLNA media server, allowing numerous points of access to images, instantaneously and wirelessly. This means that not only can media recorded on the EOS 7D be uploaded wirelessly to a computer, they can also be viewed on DLNA compatible televisions, video players and more.
Linked Multi-Camera Shooting - Camera linking with the WFT-E5A makes it possible for up to 10 cameras to shoot the same subject simultaneously, from different angles. Cameras can be connected without a WAP or network and set to shoot the instant the shutter is released on the Master camera. With an effective distance range up to approximately 330 feet, this linked shooting is invaluable for true multi-angle shooting.
