OverviewCanon’s new Wireless File Transmitter WFT-R10A — which also serves as a vertical battery grip — makes wired and wireless data transfer setups simple and easy. Designed specifically with the new EOS R5 camera, the WFT-R10A supports IEEE 802.11ac 2X2 MIMO/ac/a/n/g/bfor fast and secure connections, helping you to quickly and effortlessly transfer JPEG, RAW and HDR PQ HEIF files. By using the FTP transfer, as a studio photographer you can check the image you shot on a larger display, or deliver an image file to a remote editor — even from a faraway distance. With expanded versatility and an enhanced user interface, the WFT-R10A not only boasts incredible speed, but also streamlines wireless photography configurations, whether in the studio or on location.
Pro-level performance for transfer of large data files with high-speed communication is possible through use of supported standards of IEEE 802.11ac 2x2 MIMO over 5Ghz, and 802.11n 2x2 MIMO over 2.4Ghz frequencies. 2x2 MIMO Technology (Multi-Input Multi Output) uses dual antennas to transfer two streamsof data to a receiving device enabling theoretical transfer speeds of up to 867 Mbps with 802.11ac 2x2 MIMO and supporting substantially longer distance transmission compared to EOS R5's built-in Wireless support. Other supported standards include 802.11b/g/n over 2.4Ghz frequency and 802.11 ac/a/n over 5GHZ for further versatility in connection. All of this communication capability is integrated in to a easy to use and ergonomic grip.
The WFT-R10A holds two battery packs* of LP-E6NH, LP-E6N or LP-E6 battery, and also serves as a vertical battery grip. The ergonomic grip allows you to operate the multi-controller for easy AF operation, and is designed for vertical shooting – making portrait photography even easier. The WFT-R10A has adust proof and moisture-proof design, which matches that of the EOS R5 camera.
The Wireless File Transmitter WFT-R10A offers a number of convenient ways to transfer images based on the available equipment and the task at hand. Image transfer directly from the camera to local or offsite servers is facilitated via easily configurable FTP transfer. When the WFT-R10A is attached, SFTP can be used, and FTP mode is further enhanced.
With Canon's refined EOS Utility software installed on a PC, full-featured Live View remote shooting and image transfer are made simple. The Network Setting Tool assists with wire service shooters in creating, editing and deleting network settings on a larger screen. This tool also helps with the ability to export and import communication setting files (NIF*), setup LAN settings, and even check access to FTP servers and create folders.
The Wireless File Transmitter WFT-R10A provides a fast throughput for image uploading and user interface to help enable speedy set-up and configuration of wireless networks.
Connect up to ten receiver cameras (EOS R5＋WFT-R10A) to one EOS R5＋WFT-R10A via wireless LAN or sync the time of the receiver cameras (EOS R5＋WFT-R10A) with the time of the sender camera. While at your computer, images taken with multiple cameras can be displayed and managed in chronological order.
The Wireless File Transmitter WFT-R10A makes it ideal to take along for just about any activity due to its design. Built to withstand inclement weather, this transmitter has the same dustproof and water-resistant construction used in the EOS R5 camera body. A durable design helps ensure that equipment can be safely used in various conditions, making the WFT-R10A an ideal accessory for demanding photographers constantly on the move.
