Maximise the shoot time. Minimise everything else.

SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and Gigabit connectivity via Ethernet or the WFT-E8 WiFi adapter brings superb workflow flexibility to any location while the built-in GPS can auto-update time whenever you change a time-zone by connecting to a global network of GPS satellites. The crop and resize functionality lets you send the frame as you want it to be seen, without the need for a PC.
