Canon W-E1 WiFi Adapter For EOS-7D Mark II camera Coming

I am back from my Alaska/Canada Wildlife Photo Tour. It was my annual shoot and this time I put the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II camera to more real world tests. In addition to the EOS-1D X Mark II, I brought the EOS-7D Mark IIEF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II and EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II lens. You can see my equipment bag and more of my works on

Beginning to get back to my daily routine and keeping my readers up to date on the latest photography news while I was away. My readers know I have picked the Canon EOS-7D as the best value APS-C camera for sports and wildlife photography four years in a row. Now the EOS-7D Mark II has taken over that title for me. I have taken this camera on many global photo shoots and found it to be an excellent successor to the original body. Now Canon has announced a WiFi adapter, the W-E1 for the camera that will fit into the SD card slot. It is much less expensive than buying the WFT-E7A wireless file transmitter.

Specifications for the W-E1 Adapter

  • Size: 24.0Mm x 32.0Mm x 2.1Mm
  • Weight: about 2g
  • Transmission scheme: IEEE 802.11B / G / N
  • Transfer range: 10m/33ft
  • Allows the camera to be remote controlled from a smartphone
  • Wireless remote operation possible using EOS Utility
