Firmware update for WFT-E3/E3A adds EOS 50D compatibility, features  
Monday, September 22, 2008 | by Rob Galbraith
Canon has released firmware v2.0.0 for Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E3/E3A, which enables it to function with the upcoming EOS 50D plus adds three new features (when the transmitter is used with the new camera).

The firmware download page describes the changes in v2.0.0:

This firmware update (Version 2.0.0) supports the EOS 50D Digital SLR Camera. If you are using the EOS 40D, you do not need to update the firmware.
If the firmware of the WFT-E3/E3A is Version 1.0.0, the WFT-E3/E3A will not operate in conjunction with the EOS 50D (a firmware update message will appear).
In addition, if the WFT-E3 has the new Version 2.0.0 firmware, it can be used with the EOS 40D as well as the EOS 50D ; however, the three new functions of the Version 2.0.0 firmware below only apply to the EOS 50D ; they do not function on the EOS 40D.

New functions of the new Version 2.0.0 firmware

  1. Supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup
  2. Can transfer images in folders
  3. Can change HTTP port numbers

Version 2.0.0 firmware is for WFT-E3/E3A units with firmware up to Version 1.0.0. If the firmware of the WFT-E3/E3A is already Version 2.0.0, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

Updating WFT-E3/E3A firmware requires a corresponding model of cameras.

Corresponding models : EOS 40D, EOS 50D
