  • 1Description

Designed for use with the D5 DSLR, the WT-6A Wireless Transmitter from Nikon enhances the camera's connectivity capabilities with the addition of 802.11ac and 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi. At its most basic, this transmitter allows users to transfer or view files as well as remotely control the camera over the Wi-Fi connection. It also has an exceptional range of up to 656' when line of sight is maintained and a speedy data transfer rate of 130 Mbps. It offers both an HTTP mode for browser-based access to the camera from either a computer or mobile device and an Access Point mode for direct connection to the camera itself. Along with this, users will be able edit image comments, copyright, or IPTC information for seamless transition to the editing stage. Additionally, with multiple cameras equipped with this transmitter, users can take control of up to 10 DSLRs at a single time for synchronized release.

    Nikon WT-6A reviews

    WT-6A Wireless Transmitter is rated 1.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish it Worked I have been working for a week now trying to get the WT-6A to transfer images from my D5 to a computer. I can get the unit to connect after multiple tries and then after it transfers a batch of files it drops the wireless connection. The same results happen with a Mac and Windows computer. I called Nikon support to get help on how to create a proper wireless connection and because the product is so new, they were not able to help over the phone. They have been working on a solution for a week now with no response yet. I am not sure why they sent me the product if it won't work yet. My suggestion for anyone considering this unit is to wait until someone reviews it and says it actually works as advertised.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Ready for Use Unit will not transfer pictures to computer. Nikon support is not able to provide any help, they have no idea how to make it work. Does not work with D5 as advertised.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save your money I bought the WT-6 in hopes of transferring images in near real time from my D5 to my laptop (PC). Not only is this thing a royal pain to set up - it doesn't work as advertised. I contacted Nikon but, of course, Nikon is too busy to solve customers problems (not the first time I was completely ignored)! Buy a CamRanger instead - they are cheaper and really work great!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shame on Nikon First of all, shame on Nikon for not including wireless connectivity - which is standard and flawlessly executed on $300 point-and-shoots - in their flagship $6500 DSLR. There is no excuse for this sloppiness/customer gouging. Moving on to critiquing the product. The WT-6 is horrible. Unbelievably, it actually functions WORSE than the WT-5. It will not hold a connection and trying to use the HTTP mode causes my D5 to freeze. I've used the WT-4 for years, so I'm pretty sure this is not a user error. Secondly, has anyone at Nikon seen an iPhone or Android device? How could they keep the clunky, slow HTTP interface? They obviously put NO MONEY into improving the software, yet they feel justified to charge $100 than the WT-5. I wish this product worked, but unfortunately I think a Cam Ranger or other 3rd party device will have to be my solution. Boo Nikon. Don't buy unless you're in the market for a useless black box to protrude from the side of your camera.
