This accessory serves to transmit photos to a cell phone android?
Asked by: alejandro i.
It is designed to be used with the D5 DSLR, and the WT-6A Wireless Transmitter from Nikon in order to enhance the camera's connectivity capabilities. It is not made for just any camera and would be overkill if you just wanted to transfer to an android smartphone.
