Connect directly or using your own network

The Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1 allows a compatible dual card-slot EOS camera to join your own Wi-Fi in your home or studio. It also allows direct ad-hoc connections with devices such as smartphones and tablets running Camera Connect, or Mac and PC computers with EOS Utility software, so you can connect wherever you are.


See what your EOS sees, using remote Live View

Compose images using the screen of your smartphone, tablet or computer. Enjoy a clear view wherever your camera is positioned, and time your shots to coincide with the action. Camera settings can be changed too, and critical sharpness can be checked by zooming in on the image. To set or change the active autofocus point, just tap or click.


Transfer images and movies to a PC/Mac or smart device

Share individual pictures by connecting your camera to a compatible iOS/Android smart device running the Canon Camera Connect app, or a PC/Mac running EOS Utility. Once transferred, images can uploaded via the web and reviewed on screen. Or why not make a start on the editing process before you get home?

Keep your distance, shoot remotely with Wi-Fi

Work wirelessly, capturing images at distance up to 10m from your camera. Great for shooting from unusual vantage points or when photographing subjects that might be frightened by your presence.

Ultra-compact SD-card design

The Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1 fits into the SD card slot of a compatible dual card-slot EOS camera,* adding Wi-Fi functionality without adding any bulk. Weighing in at just 2g, you won’t realise it’s there – until you come to use it.
