Nikon UT-1 overview

  • 1Description

The UT-1 Communication Unit With WT-5A from Nikon provides both wired and wireless network connectivity when connected to a digital-SLR camera. Simply use an Ethernet cable for a wired network, or attach the WT-5A for wireless, and freely transfer images from your camera to a computer or FTP server - or even control the camera remotely from the computer.

The UT-1 and WT-5A are compatible with Nikon D5, D4S, D4, D810, D810A, D800, D800E, D750, D7200, D7100, and D7000 DSLR cameras. With either an Ethernet or wireless network connection, still images can be automatically transferred as they are captured, and still images and movies already stored on a memory card can be transferred and saved to a computer or FTP server.

The included WT-5A Wireless Transmitter makes it possible to operate camera controls on your Nikon D4 (not included) camera using the web browser on your iPhone or iPad, including recording HD video. The WT-5A also transmits images to an FTP server or computer twice as fast as the previous WT-4A transmitter. Using PC mode, you can also operate the D4 via Camera Control Pro 2 (not included), and release up to 10 remote D4/WT-5A combinations using one master camera. The WT-5A has a range of 590' and does not require batteries, as it draws its operating power from the camera it's mounted on. This transmitter is designed for use in the U.S.A., Canada, and Brazil.

Wireless Transfers Available with WT-5A
When used with the WT-5 (available separately), UT-1 networking functions can be used over wireless networks. Nikon also markets an UT-1/WT-5 bundle that provides networking functions over both Ethernet and wireless networks.
Transfer Images While Shooting
Still images can be transferred as they are captured, and still images and movies already stored on a memory card can be saved to a computer or FTP server.
Transfer Images to FTP Servers
Still images and movies can be automatically uploaded and saved to an FTP server as they are captured, enabling transfer of a high volume of high-resolution image data captured by a digital-SLR camera. This allows for verification of images from a remote location by those not in the immediate vicinity of the camera.
Control Camera via PC
Operate the D4 via Camera Control Pro 2. From one master camera, simultaneously release up to ten remote D4/WT-5A combinations. Camera Control Pro 2 software (sold separately) allows users to specify and adjust shooting settings such as exposure mode, shutter speed, aperture, and white balance, and also to use live view photography and even record movies remotely. In addition, still images and movies can be saved directly to the computer as they are recorded with remote shooting using Camera Control Pro 2.
Control Camera via iPhone or iPad with HTTP Mode
Now you can use the web browser on your iPhone or iPad to operate camera controls or begin Live View shooting, including starting and stopping HD video and more.
Image Transmission Mode
Transmit images to an FTP server or computer two times faster than the previous Nikon WT-4A model.
Increase Field & Studio Efficiency
When another accessory is mounted on the accessory shoe, such as a speedlight, the camera and UT-1 can be mounted on a tripod using the optional SK-7 bracket (sold separately) for smooth handling.

    Nikon UT-1 reviews

    UT-1 Communication Unit With WT-5A is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best so far I have owned and used the WT3, the WT4, and now the UT-1 with WT-5A. Faster and quicker than all previous versions. Works flawlessly!! The batteries also last so much longer. In the WT3 and WT4, the battery would last only a few hours at best. In the UT-1, I'm able to work for 6-8 hours easily. My biggest complaint and reason for a 4 instead of a 5, is that the cord connecting to the camera is too short. The WT3 connected to the base of the camera, and the WT4 came with a long cable so that I could put the transmitter in my inside suit coat pocket and still work. Wt4 also came with a case that i could attach to my belt. WT5 is a short cable and no case for attaching to belt. As to performance, I'm extremely happy with the stability, reliability and speed!! Last, why put a hot shoe adapter on the UT-1? Makes no sense, I rarely shoot without a flash and when I do, I'm using a trigger for my lights on my hotshoe.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing The product has no functional advantage over the Nikon WT-4. The communication Unit works okay but even when using the WT-A5 on bodies like the Nikon D800 several features are not supported. Including using a smartphone to control the body.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from UT-1 Works Great! I was able to install the UT-1 and WT-5 on my Nikon D4 and D800 bodies!
    Date published: 2012-12-31
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well once you get it setup properly Nikon's documentation is contradictory for this unit. It has not been updated properly when using the UT-1 and the WT-5a with the Nikon D810 camera. After several calls with Nikon support (who unfortunately wasn't very helpful except for one tech) I fnally got the units to work with my camera.
