Canon EOS-1D X Mark III: Get connected

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III

Get connected quickly and easily, whether you’re using the pitch-side network in a sports stadium or filing a story with your smartphone from the other side of the world. The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III makes it simpler than ever to get your pictures where they need to be – ahead of the competition.

Wireless networking

The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III features built-in Wi-Fi, which is ideal for communicating with smart devices and computers, either in the studio or on location.

Smartphones and tablets running the Camera Connect app and Digital Photo Professional Express App* can be used to browse, edit, retouch and transmit photos when you’re on the move. They can also act as a sophisticated remote control for the camera, letting you compose on the device’s screen, change camera settings and shoot still photos and video. PC and Mac computers running EOS Utility can perform these tasks too.

And when you need a stronger wireless connection, the option WFT-E9 wireless adapter provides you with extra range and more reliability in ‘digitally congested’ areas like football stadiums. It supports the MIMO 802.11ac standard, which uses both 5GHz and 2.4 GHz bands for communication over distances up to 150 meters and also allows connections to secure SFTP servers.

Ethernet connections

Major sports events around the world make wired ethernet connections available to trackside and pitch-side photographers so that they can transmit images back to news agencies as they shoot. That’s why we gave the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III a lightning fast gigabit ethernet socket that transmits data twice as fast as the 1D X mark II.

Connectivity settings are now grouped together in their own menu tab. It’s now possible to save up to 20 connection pre-sets for instant recall, with network access and ftp server details stored separately to reduce the amount of time it takes to get set up in a new location. Agencies can even distribute connection setting to their photographers electronically, which can be loaded into the camera via memory card.

Ethernet connectivity now supports secure SFTP protocols, which prevent images from being intercepted.
