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.

Great for quick uploads

Comments about Nikon WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter:

The mobile adapter isn't the best remote shudder control (it's slow on the phone and disconnects intermittently). But it's great for quickly uploading pics from your camera to your phone for social media purposes.

Comments about Nikon WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter:

Got this and started using it immediatly, it works great, has no flaws. I've read a lot of reviews before buying it, saying that the connection was weak and had to be restarted, but that never happened to me. The app works well, the only thing that would be great to have is being able to adjust parameters from your mobile device. This is the only reason i'm giving 4 stars. If mine gets broken, I would RUN for a replacement. As soon as I saw the first results on my Nikon D3300 I started telling my friends they should get one ASAP.

Comments about Nikon WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter:

I received this with my d7100 and so far I've been loving it. It's very easy to carry, I have it attached to my camera strap and it doesn't get in the way. The app for it has been okay so far, it's easy to use.

Do not buy this if you have a nikon d810 or several others.

Comments about Nikon WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter:

I have that camera and this wifi adapter pops up on a google search, So like a dummy I order it. I find out when i get it and try to put it on that it does not work with my camera.
it has a list if you dig deeper and it shows you what it works with. If you have my camera and several high end NIKON cameras this adapter DOES NOT WORK. Why? Nikon is behind the times. 3000 for a camera and you can't get a decently priced wifi adapter? or god forbid include the wifi? cmon . I'd give it zero stars but that apparently isn't allowed.

Problematic device

By Mike

Verified Buyer

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.
