The UT-1 Communication Unit from Nikon connects to select Nikon DSLRs and, via an Ethernet network, transfers images directly to your computer or FTP server. It can also communicate so your computer can remotely control your camera. In addition, by utilizing the WT-5a Wireless Transmitter (available separately), you can perform the same functions wirelessly.
Mounted to the camera's hot shoe (or tripod if the hot shoe is occupied), the UT-1 will quickly transfer images as they are captured to your computer or to an FTP server where they are uploaded and saved. This is an efficient way to save your images but more so, an immediate way to verify image quality and accuracy, whether it be you doing the verification or your colleagues in another location. Images already on the camera's memory card can be easily transferred as well. The UT-1 is designed for professional photographers with high resolution files to streamline their workflow and collaborate more effectively. Transfer speed and the ability to view numerous images quickly are the advantage of the UT-1. The UT-1 is presently compatible with the Nikon D4, D800, D800E and D7000 DSLRs.
The UT-1 communicates between your computer and camera and when used with Camera Control Pro 2 software, allows your computer to remotely control your camera's settings and functions. Again, a great tool for professional collaboration, but not limited exclusively to pros; ideal for any level of photographer who desires remote and efficient equipment and image control. Exposure, shutter speed, aperture, white balance, live view, even video recording can be controlled from your computer via the UT-1.
