Just come across the possibility of wirelessly transferring images off the 5dmk3 - to do this are owners using the WFT-E6, or other devices. From what I've read it appears that the WFT-e6 will only transfer via wifi jpegs is that not a bit of a let down for owners who only shoot in raw?

I think the WFT-E6 will work only with 1DX. With eye-fi cards like in the link below will do the trick. Too expensive.

For the Mark3, look at the eyefi SD card, works great.
Do a search here, there are a few threads on how it works.

Either way is going to take awhile for Raw files.

All the Canon WFT grips and dongles all do raw transfers, the WFT-e4 II or the WFT-E5 grips are only wireless G which makes them slower, takes about 10 seconds for a full raw to transferred.

The WFT-E6 for the 1dx is wireless N, which should make it faster.

I hate the WFT-e7a for the 5m3, it's such a tacked on afterthought, they should have continued with the vertical grip design.

I use an eye-fi I only shoot raw but when I want to see my images right away I use my eye-fi card to transfer a M jpg to my ipad it just gets deleted after. its great for checking focus or framing on a larger screen.
I think it would be to slow for raw files if thats what you want I dont think wifi is a real option thats why the 1dx has a gigabit ethernet.

Bump. I'm trying out the wft-e6 on my mkIII. I'm thinking about returning it. It's so awkward feeling and I hate the way the cables stick out, just asking to get snagged on something. (my 7d already has an issue with the USB port from shooting tethered so much). It's supposed to be a wireless solution.... and here are all these cables everywhere. Ugh. Maybe I can add some duct tape to round out the experience.

Ergonomics and aestetics aside, it functions very well. Raw files transfer in a few seconds on my wireless N network. I'm having some issues getting it to remember my network settings (I'll have to play with it more). If I have to enter my WPA2 credentials every time I shoot tethered, that will get old very fast.

how did you do that ?

WFT-E6 connected to 5D mark III ??? are you dreaming or something ???

one of the reasons I said 5D mark III are positioned for amateur and hobbyist,
becauses Canon did not make WFT for 5D mark III and puts WIFI on 6D,
6D seems to be more professionals for Canon that way

Well, there is the WFT-E7 for the 5D Mark III, but it's of the new, universal design, so it doesn't fit as smoothly to the camera as the previous designs did. You have to use a cable too, and you can't combine it with controls for vertical shooting.
