To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I originally bought the 1A version of this, which doesn't fit my camera. Amazon were excellent with a no fuss return and refund. I've now got the right one. If you're reading this on a mobile phone, then you are likely seeing this adapter in life size. The reasonably sized, quite weighty box contains a raft of paperwork - which is where the bulk and weight come from. The adapter is very small, but comes with a little lanyard type string and small case. The idea is that the case and presumably the lanyard are attached to your camera strap, so as not to lose them and have the adapter ready to plug in. I plugged it in and have successfully connected both my Mac and iPhone to the camera for both picture review and remote control. Both have worked without problem. The Nikon wireless app is a bit feeble, to say the least. Review and download images and take images, with quite limited control of the camera. As more of their bodies now incorporate WiFi natively rather than via an adapter, I would hope that Nikon would look at improving the functionality of the support app. There is an alternative app - DSLR Dashboard, which is free for Mac and iPhone, but curiously, paid for iPad. There are Windows and Android versions as well. I've only had a quick play with the package, but it certainly appears to offer far more than the Nikon app at present.
I’ve had this for five years and now it will not connect to the WMU app on my iPad or iPhone. Completely useless now. Others say its due to updates made in IOS 12 where the WiFi security has been improved to reduce hacking by rogue hot spots. I added a WiFi password but this did not improve matters.
This really only has one function but it does it perfectly. I can now see the picture to be taken on my Samsung Galaxy 111 phone and fire the shutter of my Nikon D600 from a distance with no wires. This is exactly what I wanted. The unit is so, so small but has a tether to attach it to the camera strap and a protective case which also fits on the camera strap. Excellent design and really simple to set up. It would have been nice to control more of the basic camera functions from the phone but I knew it didn't when I bought it so no problem. Hopefully the app will be expanded to do more. In the meantime I have to give it 5 stars as it does what it says on the tin and does it beautifully.
I was surprised at how small this was when it arrived. I've had no problem using it, links up easily to my phone (Android). The only thing is the amount of time it takes between photos for downloading onto your phone. It comes with a handy little cord, so you can attach it to your camera. I attach mine to the metal clip which holds the strap, it means you CAN'T drop or lose it, it's impossible!
It works but....for me it is painfully slow. Sure it depends on the size of the images, and I'm using a full frame camera shooting RAW, but still.... Took about half an hour to download a hundred pics. Hopefully it's faster if you just shoot in jpg, or non full frame.
I persevered with this for almost two weeks but sent it back for a refund. In all of that time it only managed to download three photographs without the wifi disconnecting. It’s hard to believe that Nikon have released something so useless. I would not recommend this to anyone, just buy a card reader.
I think this is a brilliant little widget that allows you to share photos with your phone/ipad etc immediately after you've taken them. Great for holidays when you want to upload photos to save space on your camera card. The app for it was a bit touch and go at first, but with the latest update transfers etc. are very quick. It's quite small though, so if you are prone to loosing things (like me) attach it with a lanyard to something so it's easy to find!!!
I have a Nikon 1 AW1 and bought this to enable me to transfer pictures to my smart phone (Apple 5s running iOS 7.1.1). Seems to do everything it promises. You plug it in the mini USB port and power on the camera. Did notice that the instructions don't seem to mention that you have to go and activate it in the camera settings, but after that it worked fine. I downloaded the Nikon app from the Apple Store. My iPhone detected it as a WiFi source and one I had connected to it I could transfer photos from the camera SD card to the iPhone camera roll, I could also see what the camera lens was 'seeing' and take photos remotely using the iPhone.
When delivered the packaging and contents looked as if the product was second hand or returned, did not look pristine as one would expect. Taking an inventory of the contents I found that the lanyard was missing. Point is i have paid for new but got the impression what was delivered is second hand or returned.
Product works ok. As it was sold as new I expect it to be guaranteed as such. Jury-rigged my own lanyard.
Great product for transferring pictures to phone (and immediately share them from your phone). Be aware that it reduces the quality (size) of the picture! For use on the internet, no problem; it's to my phone 1620 x 1080. But if you want to send it to your phone and print from phone, look for another solution! You need the free app from Nikon to connect camera with phone. If you find that your phone continually disconnects with the camera, let your phone/tablet 'forget' the other Wifi's and set it up to not automatically connect to a wifi network if there is one in range. I actually had no problem transferring 11 testphoto's from camera to phone, but I read everywhere that people have troubles with disconnecting and a minute later after I transferred the files, my connection was also gone. The tip about other wifi's solves this. It's reasonably fast but for big transfers, I would use a cable or swop SDcard.
