Transfer images on-the-go with Canon’s new Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1

London, UK, 25 August 2016 – Canon today introduces the Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1, a dedicated Wi-Fi adapter for Canon’s EOS 7D Mark II¹, EOS 5DS¹ and EOS 5DS R¹. The new accessory gives you the freedom to wirelessly transfer shots directly from compatible EOS DSLRs² to iOS and Android smart devices and computers whilst on-the-go.
