Canon launched a EOS 7D Mark II Kit featuring the new SD card-sized Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1, which enables easy transfer of data like videos and images. The Wi-Fi adapter also allows use of the Canon Camera Connect App for remote capturing of still images via a compatible smartphone.
Canon EOS 7D Mark II Lens Features:
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II Lens Kit will come with the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. The EOS 7D Mark II Digital SLR camera will also be available in body-only version at $1,849 October, while the Wi-Fi Adapter is scheduled to be available in early September 2016 for an estimated retail price of $50.
It may be noted that the firmware update for the previously purchased EOS 7D Mark II cameras already rolled out in early September to make it compatible with Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1, whereas EOS 5DS and 5DS R cameras will get the update in November.
The adapter probably sounds familiar to anyone who already used Eye-Fi SD cards before, but unlike those cards, the Canon’s adapter provides no storage space of its own. It’s designed to be used in cameras that have a second memory card slot, like the 7D Mark II.
As for the other change to 7D Mark II kit, Canon has long bundled the camera with an 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens. This is the first time, however, that camera will be sold with the latest version of that lens, which uses nano ultrasonic motor tech to provide fast and silent autofocus when shooting both stills and video. Canon claims that the lens has also been optimized for the smooth and quiet zooming, a big advantage for video shooters.
Canon EOS 7D Mark II Lens Price:
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II Lens Kit is now available at an estimated price of $2,449.
