Wireless WU-1a module?

Not even a planned app for Windows? and what is that SOCKET?

Interesting idea, 'beaming' 24MP images via Wi-Fi 11b/g/n.... about 49ft.......for $60!


Hummmm... with 2 parabolic dishes and line-of-site.....I wonder if this might be useful.


The other Nikon wireless stuff is madly overpriced and no so user-friendly.

It's a pity that the D800 didn't get either of the new compact wireless units; the WT-5 or the WU-1a.

+1 Ilkka !! Big omission by someone!

The market for >500m line-of-sight image transfer for files from camera > vehicle based selling area, is pretty small I guess, but it's there. I often have to rely on trials bikes to carry CF cards to a lorry (I can see) from a fixed point (I can't leave) in a field next to a horse jump.

It's only for the new D3200.

It only works with the D3200 and, apparently, requires an Android device. iStuff app expected in the fall. Maybe in the next generation they'll have figured out how to do this without needing to keep the little door open.

WU-1a has 15 m range, so it's for studio use (WT-5 range is 180 m more suitable for remote control applications).

Indeed, WT-5a for D4 only but @ $900+, is just not going to happen.

Peter, so far that is! :-)

Is it possible to do this with an EyeFi SD card and an SD to CF adapter for a D300?
