This is really a fun new gizmo. It's easy to download pictures I've taken with my D7100 to my iPhone which I can then email to family members around the country. Downloading is slow, so it's only practical for one or two photos. Using it to take self-portraits or group photos with the camera on a tripod and the iPhone to monitor Live View and trigger the photo works really well. You can see on the iPhone screen exactly what the camera will take. The camera settings have to be done on the camera before shooting, but hopefully this will be an added feature to the iPhone app in the future. Example photo taken with D7100 on tripod, ISO 800, 1/20 sec, f/5.6, focal length 31mm on AF-S 17-55mm 1:2.8G Nikkor lens.

I bought this item because it had some good reviews and I thought it would let me control the camera more than just a regular remote. It doesn't. I also thought it was just a cool gadget. It's actually a bit of a pain to operate and just because the picture comes over the iphone doesn't mean the quality of the preview is any greater than the cameras screen quality. In other words, you're not gonna get some crisp display by which to fine tune camera settings. I also thought I would need it to transfer files to my computer more easily via wifi, but here's the best warning I can give you, when you have the wireless feature turned on, your file will begin wireless transfer to your phone and it will take forever to download; especially if you try to download the RAW files. Keep in mind, while the downloading of the file is in progress, you cannot take any more pictures. Your camera is tied up for the entire process. Other than the things I've said, it does do what it claims.

Problematic device

By Mike

Comments about Nikon WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter:

Following instructions and pictures, I attempted to plug this device in. I gave up when the amount of force exerted was a bit more than I have ever used on a similar type of connector. I'm going to examine both the adapter and camera under high magnification for possible causes before crying for help.

Good connector, not so good app.

Comments about Nikon WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter:

This connector hooks up fine to the camera but the app that is to be used with it is choppy. Hopefully Nikon will release a better update with some big fixes.

Comments about Nikon WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter:

Could not be easier to be send photographs and manage wireless functions with this device. Simple procedure to set up and good to go every time after that. This product works as advertised and makes for simple sharing or just to review a photo on a tablet or larger screen as you take the picture.

I think it will download of my photos (from camera) but it doesn't. You have the chance to select which one would you to download to your cellphone (by the app, of course!) great purchase

Very handy little accessory

By Jason

Verified Buyer

Comments about Nikon WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter:

This was included as part of a D3300 package deal on here and honestly didn't think much of it at the time when I made the purchase, but after using a couple times while testing out the camera I found it really handy.
Setting up the app in a phone or tablet may take a couple minutes, but once you have it installed and setup with your wireless settings the ease of being able to access pictures from the camera and immediately be able to post or share is definitely a great convenience.

Can be useful, but not all the time.

Comments about Nikon WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter:

4 stars just because the app you need to go with this is very low quality like Nikon doesn't care to keep it looking and feeling good.

Great, Once you get it to stay connected....

By PJBSr

from NY

Verified Buyer

Comments about Nikon WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter:

The unit has trouble staying connected to the app. Put your iPhone or iPad in airplane mode. Then turn on wifi on your device. Plug the unit into the camera and turn the camera on. Your device should show a Nikon wifi address. Choose that and you should be all set.

I have not used the remote control feature.

Once I got it to stay connected I've had no problems. It's a good tool to have in your case.
