Canon W-E1 WiFi adapter
« on: August 08, 2016, 01:34:33 PM »
Normally I don't tend to take rumors seriously but this one caught my eyes for the last days as a "WiFi adapter" is rumored to be announced in a few weeks:

  • WiFi adapter in EyeFi (size of an sdcard) form factor (maybe allowing for use of microsd??)
  • EOS Utility compatible (remote controlling etc....)
  • ...and therefore some type of PTP/IP through DMA controller which again would open new ways for hacking and tweaking our cameras.
  • At least said to be compatible with the 7D Mk2 but I hope rumors become true and lots of cameras are going to get a fw update (crosiing fingers for getting rid off revision handling for SL1 / 70D)

Btw: a1ex was experimenting with FlashAir cards from Toshiba a while ago so if the rumors become true you are going to start from scratch  :P

I've had the W-E1 wireless card for about a month and it works well with the 7D2.
Is there any hope of a ML port on the 5D3 that adds W-E1 support?
