Product Description

Designed exclusively for the EOS 40D, the Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E3A incorporates a number of significant new features into a robust, camera-powered system to make wireless transfer faster and easier than ever. It transfers images wirelessly through either 802.11 b or g, has an Ethernet connection for situations where wireless transfer is impractical or impossible, as well as a more powerful antenna, capable of transmission up to 490 feet/150m from the computer, or an accessory router/access point receiver. It can connect to compatible third-party GPS device via USB; generating GPS information in each image's EXIF data. Or, you can plug a compatible USB v.2.0 hard drive into the transmitter's USB port, and actually shoot directly to a large portable hard drive. (note: the WFT-E1A or WFT-E2A Wireless Transmitter units are not compatible with the EOS 40D).

Customer Reviews:
  • It's a Steal at the price it is going for right now
    I concur with everything stated by the positive reviewer and right now is a perfect time to snatch these up as they are being blown out at nearly 50% off the regular price. A truly necessary and excellent item to have.

    Canon WFT-E3A Wireless File Transmitter for EOS-40D

    This vertical grip for the Canon 40D makes taking vertical pictures like portraits quite comfortable. The grip has the AF-ON, AE Lock and AF Point buttons as well as the Shutter button. I have connected it wirelessly to my home Linksys network. Connecting wirelessly requires that you understand basic wireless network terms and that you install software that can be downloaded for free from Canon's website, but is not too difficult. Now I am able to use the the EOS utility program to download image files to my laptop computer for example when taking portraits while I am continuing to take pictures. This allows me to see on the computer screen if I am getting the shots or do I need to adjust the lighting. The images become visible on the EOS Utility Screen in just a couple of seconds. The actual download of a RAW file to your hard drive and opening of it automatically in Canon's Digital Photo Professional Program takes about 40 seconds and your camera is busy during this time. You can of course download images using a USB cable connected directly to the 40D camera and the download speed is faster with the wired connection. This grip is what I expected and I am happy with it....more info
  • WiFi Error
    I have not been able to get this device to connect wirelessly. Connected with an ethernet cable it works as advertised. Just not worth the money....more info
