The built-in 1TB of storage is able to hold approximately 150,000 photos or approximately 70 hours of video.
NFC and Wi-Fi connectivity allow you to simply tap your NFC-enabled Canon camera to the device in order to automatically transfer photos and movies over Wi-Fi. For cameras without built-in Wi-Fi or NFC, a USB 2.0 port and both CF and SD card slots are also available for importing content.
For large-scale playback on an HDTV or monitor, an HDMI out port can be used to preview your imagery. The photos' full resolution is maintained during playback as well as the smooth playback from high bitrate video formats. Additionally, the included remote control (CS-RC1) permits simple, wireless control over playback and file navigation.
Files are automatically sorted by date (month/year) or by the specific shooting device. For further refinement, an easy-to-navigate menu structure allows you to create albums for more personalized sorting.
Wireless printing is supported from the CS100, which is fully compatible with PictBridge and wireless LAN-enabled PIXMA, SELPHY, or other compatible printers.
Accessible via a web browser on smartphones, tablets, or PCs, the contents of the CS100 can also be viewed or downloaded to other devices. Furthermore, imagery can be imported from smart devices, and compatible Android devices will automatically connect without the need to manually launch the web browser interface.
Seamless and wireless file transferring between two Connect Stations is possible, as well as the ability to share directly to social networks via the Canon iMAGE GATEWAY.
The following file formats are supported by the CS100:
  • Photo: JPEG, CR2
  • Video: MP4, MOV, AVCHD
The contents of the CS100 can securely be offloaded to another external hard drive via USB connection for backing up your photo and video library.

question

does it back up photos while you take them automatically? can I carry it in my bag/pocket as a real time backup option? or do i have to offload the images manually?
Asked by: Di
It needs to be plugged into an outlet, so you wouldn't be able to carry it around in a bag to use. It would also be too big for you to carry in your pocket. It connects wirelessly with your camera to save images, but you can't take photos while it is downloading the images. It acts as a storage device and allows you to play slideshows if you hook it up to your tv.

question

I use custom folders on my CF Card while shooting different groupings of photos. Will this unit import my photos as they sit on the card in those folders or will it re-arrange them to its own structure?
Asked by: Mike
Hi, as an user of this item I am, I can tell you the CS100 doesn't keep the folders you have into your cards, at the moment you export your photos into CF100, it is going to arrange by date and by model of the camera; what you really can do it's after your photos are into CS100 it is creating albums. Cheers.

question

I will be traveling internationally for 3 weeks on a photo adventure. I do not want to take a PC to store my images. Is this a reliable and effective way to offload (Canon 5DS) RAW images from the camera SD/CF card and review them via the hotel TV then ultimately transfer to Lightroom back at the house?
Asked by: Anonymous
TO make it simple and short YES, it is reliable & effective way to store and replay your photos and videos from SD/CF.But the interface is little slow and needs some effort to get your files back from it to your PC. I think you might need to format a Hard Disk to do so. So my advice is to use it only if you won't have the option of having your laptop... Enjoy your photo adventure.

question

Would it work wirelessly with a Canon 5D Mark II?
Asked by: oscar a.
No, it would not. Only Canon cameras that are NFC-compatible may be imported via a wireless connection. Unfortunately, the Canon EOS 5D Mark II DSLR camera is not an NFC-compatible camera and does not have wireless capability built into the camera. As such, you would either have to transfer the images taken with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II DSLR camera to the Canon Connect Station CS100 either by using a USB cable connecting the camera to the Canon Connect Station CS100, or by removing the CompactFlash memory card and inserting it into the Connect Station to transfer your files.
