I wanted this card for some time now to make my Canon 7D mark 2 camera wi-fi enabled. I tried it and it works perfectly. Happy

It does what it should, but unfortunately Canon's WiFi implementation is too pokey to be of much use (Canon 5DsR). It was worth the $30 gamble to try it with Kuuvik, but setting up a peer to peer network with Canon's kludgy interface is not worth the hassle. I'll stick with my wired tether, thanks.

Great for JPEG SMALL shooters.

Connecting to WIFI to laptop is a pain. Finally connected to 5DSR. All controls now on laptop (sigh). OK, i can work with that, i guess. Shot full RAW. Wait 35 seconds. Uh? No thanks. I should have read the reviews. If you shoot small jpegs it is for you...kinda. But who buys a Canon 5DSR, 50 mgpx camera and shoots jpegs? Tossing another lame camera product on my pile of useless camera stuff I should never have bought. Plugging cable back in.

This very affordable gadget adds similar functionality to the 5DS/R & 72 cameras to the newer cameras which have wi-fi built in. The functionality is very similar to the 5D4 although not all of the options are available, the two connection options available are the ones I wanted: image transfer to a phone and control via EOS Utility from a PC (stills only, not movie recording). They seem to work in exactly the same way as the 5D4. I use it with an Android (Galaxy) phone and find it works quite well. Your mileage may vary as I did find the 5D4 to be a bit finnicky to connect the first time (not with this adapter) but this adapter actually worked first go with a 5DSR. The only downsides are that the card needs to be physically removed to enable the USB port on the camera for a cable connection, and no protective case is required. I suspect the wi-fi range is probably quite limited for such a small device, but as I would typically use them less than 1 meter apart this is not an issue for me. If you need long range or the other features the WFT-E7 is what you want. A few tips: I would recommend updating your camera firmware to the latest version and connecting to the wi-fi with your phone manually before starting the Camera Connect app. You may want to disable or extend the power save interval in the camera so it won't disconnect. If you are going to use it in the field with its own wi-fi SSID (instead of connecting to an existing network) then you may as well set your phone to auto-connect to that network to minimize manual connection steps.

Canon W-E1 Wi-Fi Adapter & 5Ds

I'm using this with my Canon EOS 5Ds R over Wi-Fi. Works great! The directions to setup were not in English, however there is plenty of information online to setup. Apparently this can be done with Bluetooth also, but haven't had chance to try it.

Will this W-E1 Wifi card work by itself to transfer the images to my phone or laptop?? Or is a CF card in conjunction with this wifi card mandatory for anything to work?? I know this wifi card has no SD storage, but if I put it in the camera with no other cards, will it still let me send the pics to my phone/laptop? Is a CF card mandatory also for it to work wirelessly or is a CF card just optional if I also want to save it to a physical memory card??
Asked by: R
CF card is a must , and this is only compatible with Canon 5DS/ 5DSR and Canon 7D II

question

When will they be in stock?
Asked by: Jordan H.
Unfortunately, at this time, we do not have an estimated arrival date for the Canon W-E1 Wi-Fi Adapter. Once we have more information on the unit's arrival, we will update the Ship Time section on the Wi-Fi adapter's webpage, and update the item's inventory status. Until then, I would recommend clicking the white Request Stock Alert button on our website under the Pre-Order button and enter your e-mail address and we will e-mail you when the card is in stock. Otherwise, you may simply periodically check our website for an update in the item's inventory status.

question

whats the transfer rate? didn't want to slow down shooting with 70mb raw files of the 5dsr
Asked by: lians
I haven't measured the speed, but the previews/files aren't instant by any means. It takes about 2 seconds on the mobile app for a full size (JPEG, I think) preview, and about 5 seconds for the RAW file to download to EOS Utility on a PC with 5DSR files. You can shoot as fast as you like, however, it's just the preview/downloads that take time.

Asked by: Dovid
It is our understanding that the Canon W-E1 does not work with this reader. There is very little information as to what Wi-Fi cards do work. We have one report that these work. https://www.toshiba-memory.com/products/flashair-w-03/

question

Do I need the cs100 in addition to the Wi-Fi card to transfer images straight to my computer?
Asked by: Denise
While the CS100 is a fine solution for transferring your images off the camera, it is not a requirement to use the W-E1. With the Canon W-E1 Wi-Fi Adapter, you can transfer your images to another camera, a smart device, a computer, the internet (through the computer using Canon EOS Utilities) and a printer.

question

My question is this I currently use SD cards for my main storage for my 7D mark ii , would I be able to use this Wi-Fi adapter using a CF card adapter so I can keep using my SD cards? Or would I have to bite the bullet and start using expensive CF cards?
Asked by: juan m.
You could probably put this card in your SD card slot, and your normal SD cards in the adapter.But I have the 7DMII, and unless you're using it for video only, you are throwing away its speed capabilities by not giving it a CF card. It requires a UDMA 7 CF card to have the full buffer capacity. I bought the SanDisk 64gb extreme card, and use the SD card for overflow. you can purchase the 16gb version of that card for 30 dollars here at B&H.
