Does anyone here have experience using the combination 1DIII plus the WFT-E2A ? Is it worth to get the WFT-E2A? I want to use it to photograph wild life in their own environment (nest, cave, etc), trying to set up a tripod with the camera on top (disgusing it too) and shooting with my lap top from a 100 yard distance. Also, what is the difference between the WFT-E2A and the WFT-E2, and the WFT-E2A IIA?
I want also to be able to get the shots taken by the remote camera on my lap top.
I appreciate your advice and sharing your experience. Thanks, Pepe.

If you need to do "tethered" shooting without the use of a cable, then the WFT-E2A is the only option you have. The main drawback to using the WFT instead of the cable is the setting up of the camera and the computer to communicated with each other. If you're a computer-challenged person, then setting up the wireless network on the computer for the WFT might be proved to be a challenge and even frustrating.

The difference between the WFT-E2 and the WFT-E2 II is that the later is an updated version of the WFT-E2 for the 1D MK IV. It has at least one feature not found on the WFT-E2, like the ability to remotely trigger other cameras with compatible WFTs attached.

And the difference between the WFT-E2A and WFT-E2 is that only the "A" version can be used in the US and Canada.
