Canon WFT-R10A Overview

Combining robust connectivity within an integrated battery grip design, the WFT-R10A Wireless File Transmitter is a network workflow asset for the Canon EOS R5 C and R5 mirrorless camera bodies. This transmitter/grip combination permits transferring of image files using either wired or wireless LAN connections with FTP, FTPS, and SFTP support for secure sharing. EOS Utility and Network Setting Tool support, along with an updated and intuitive interface, permit creating various wireless configurations of varying complexities, including enhanced support for linked multi-camera shooting and wirelessly synced applications.

As a grip, the WFT-R10A accepts up to two LP-E6/LP-E6N/LP-E6NH batteries. It also provides users with a set of vertical controls and dials, including a shutter release and joystick, to make the camera more comfortable to use in a portrait orientation. Additionally, the grip has the same level of dust and water resistance as the R5 itself to suit working in inclement conditions.

Both wired (Ethernet) and wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) connectivity options are available for custom networking solutions. Wireless support has been upgraded over the base camera with 802.11ac/c 2x2 MIMO Technology to achieve transfer speeds of up to 867 Mb/s. Also, standard 802.11b/g/n at 2.4 GHz and 802.11ac/a/n at 5 GHz are options for compatibility with different networks.
As a vertical battery grip the WFT-R10A offers the expected advantages of longer battery life and easier operation for vertical shooting. It holds two LP-E6NH/LP-E6N/LP-E6 battery packs. It also has vertical controls, including dials, a multi-controller, and shutter release. Additionally, it is dust and moisture resistant to match the camera.
Professional workflows sometimes require advanced remote transfer options, including FTP and encryption. The WFT-R10A allows configuring for direct image transfer from the camera to local or offsite servers using FTP, FTPS, and SFTP.
EOS Utility software is avaialble, providing options for Live View remote shooting and image transfer. This works well with the Network Setting Tool for adjusting network-specific options using a computer. This tool allows the export and import of setting files (NIF), LAN setup, and the ability to check access to the FTP server and create folders.
One camera can connect to up to ten receiver cameras (all equipped with the WFT-R10A) via wireless LAN for remote multi-camera shooting or to sync time of all the cameras.

How fast are file transfer for jpg and raw?
Asked by: J
To add value to answer,...I have a Nikon WT-7 for my D500 and D850. And it's also at the 802.11ac protocol (...though I'm not sure if it's 2x2 MIMO), but it transfers Full Raw images around 6.x secs,....Small Fine Jpegs near instant,...all others Jpeg sizes from 2-4 secs or so. Note, the Access Point (Router) must also be 802.11ac. Hth

How does this product provide extended battery life?
Asked by: Kanon
It does not. One is dedicated for the wireless function and the other is dedicated for the camera. Hopefully Canon releases a firmware update to allow you to choose how it manages power if not using the wireless portion.

The description reads "It holds two LP-E6NH/LP-E6N/LP-E6 battery packs for effectively double the runtime." but on the Canon website it states "*Each of the batteries works independently, supplying power to the camera and Wireless File Transmitter separately." Does this mean that at all times the grip will only draw power from one battery during normal usage, or does it only split the power when it's actively using the wireless capability?
Asked by: Hamilton
I have this grip. In my experience the camera will not use both batteries. Once one battery is depleted, I have to swap batteries within the magazine to continue. I really hope Canon addresses this in a firmware update, allowing us to select the behavior.
