    Canon W-E1 reviews

    W-E1 Wi-Fi Adapter is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 65.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from this is an update to take into account the new firmware. just as before, the camera's manual controls are completely disabled under firmware 1.1.2 when connected wirelessly. this makes the W-E1 useless as a means of providing live, on-set feedback to clients while the shoot is in progress - something that wired connection accomplishes easily, and even using a firmware-hacked wifi router directly connected to USB on the camera can do (which is very much a kludgy solution, because it still involves wires... more than just a standard USB because the router needs power if shooting for more than an hour or so). come on, Canon. this is garbage.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from not essential fun gadget. I've had mine a few weeks now in my 5DS-R. It's working as advertised. While not an essential piece of my work flow, it does allow me to focus peak better than the built in LCD. Not an essential piece as it does not transmit full res- but a fun add on.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from More Canon Tax. Works as expected with one caveat. First, this adapter should have been included as part of the basic camera specs. After updating the firmware, the WiFi adapter does work as expected. HOWEVER, while it is plugged into the camera, the camera will no longer connect to a computer via USB. If you have a lot of pictures to export, you will need to remove the adapter and then reconnect the USB port. Junk like this is the reason that I will switch to Sony when purchasing my next body. I thought I would never dislike a company as much as Sony, well hello Canon, and thanks for raising the bar! After shooting Canon for the better part of 15 years, it's time to make a change.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Slow is the name of the game So the short review is it works. I can use it take pictures, and have them transmitted wirelessly to your computer. (Yes including RAW) However it's slow, slow, slow, slow. I have a Canon 5Ds, updated to the latest firmware. Yes I have it set to max RAW file. File size is anywhere from 45-75 MB. When I started my initial testing, it didn't seem horribly slow, but when my first dry run, I noticed how slow it was.. After two pictures, you couldn't see a preview anymore, you'd just get busy please wait. So I decided to time how long it would take. I did a full high speed image capture, 14 images, and I waited. After 2 minutes the buffer cleared enough to allow one more image. After 4 minutes it cleared 2 images. After 7 minutes it cleared 4 images. After 15 min 14 seconds (give or take a little) it cleared the buffer of all 14 images. A little longer after that to finish sending the last picture. I'm sure I'd do better with Med/Small RAW files, or if I did jpg only. My router reports the transmissionspeed of 1Mbps... I hope that Canon does some updates to these, and increase the speeds, because they're pretty much useless unless you're doing just jpegs or product photography were you don't take a lot of pictures in a row, but don't think others will get as good a use out of it. As an additional note, it appears, even if you have the camera set to use the compact flash for storage, it doesn't write to the CF Card until it finishes sending the last image, so not only is your buffer clogged, but your images aren't saved anywhere until it's transmitted.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Tried my new W-E1 card this past weekend in my Cano 7D MK II and I found it helpful being able to review pictures on my IPad, downloading a few, and posting on Facebook or e-mailing from the road. I have not used all the features the card offers yet. One thing I have discovered, is that if you plan to download your pictures via the normal cable, you need to remove the card first. I think once I put some time into learning all the features the card offers I will be even happier with it. I think for the money it is a nice addition to my camera kit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional and works as advertised Easy to install, but the instructions are somewhat vague and did not cover all of the little things that you will encounter when using the device in you camera. I own a Canon 7D Mark II camera and this part was designed for it. Depending on what camera you own, you will need to have the current released firmware for your camera that is put out by Canon on their website. Once you get past all of the pitfalls that you will encounter, it will transfer your picks effortlessly as well as be able to control your camera remotely. This is helpful when doing remoter shooting. One issue that I thought to be annoying is that you have to chose each image to transfer to your phone or computer. You cannot transfer groups or multiple images at a time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long wait but worth it. Works well with iPad and iPhone. Is great with EOS utility on Surface Pro 3.
    Date published: 2017-01-18
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from it's actually amazing, EXCEPT for the one critical thing! Im actually kind of mad about the W-E1 wifi SD card. why, you ask? because when in use, all manual controls of the camera are disabled, forcing all controls to be operated by the remote terminal. I specifically got it to eliminate the cord so on set ADs, clients and models could see shots immediately without fearing that somebody would step where they shouldnt or walk too far away and yank the cord (which could seriously damage either the camera or the tablet/computer it is tethered to). I need to be in direct manual control of the camera because models can move unpredictably and have to be able to react instantly. wired tethering allows me to have everything EXCEPT foolproof device safety. by comparison, the toshiba flashair cards are OK for my purpose, but the software for them is seriously kludgy and slow compared to lightroom, DSLRController or the OEM canon apps/programs. want to see a histogram? gotta download the whole file and THEN use an outside app. new images shot? have to backtrack into the file folder window to manually refresh the list. the W-E1 works AMAZING in just about every respect compared to devices like the flashairs, except that it doesnt do one of the most critical things that wired tethering can do, and because of that, the card might just get lost in my camera bag never to be used. unless Canon fixes this issue, my purchase will have likely been a complete waste. because of this, a rating of at least 4.5 stars has become a 1.
