Why no aftermarket WFT wireless grip?
Aug 14, 2010

Canon WFT wireless grip are insanely expensive (USD 600+). consider there are wireless P&S cam in the USD300 range, and many smart phone with built-in wifi, bluetooth, gps, and cost less than canon grip, which essentially only have wifi + extra buttons

so is there any reason there are no aftermarket wireless grip? the only reason i could think of is 3rd party grip don't have permission to access camera files hence can't transmit it... or any other logical reason?
