Handy to Have Posted by: from: Seattle on Make sure your phone or tablet is compatible with this adapter. It works fine with my iPhone 5s. The adapter is very easy to use, just plug into your camera (I'm using it on a Nikon D3300), ensure your phone or tablet's wireless network settings are set to detect all available networks, turn on your app and you're in business. Your phone or tablet will automatically detect this adapter's network. There are limitations to the app and not necessarily the adapter. But if all you want to do is take photos in a "point and shoot" camera mode, this adapter does really well. It has excellent range, doesn't get affected by common electronic devices and is very useful as a remote relay with limited operation. I gave it a four star not because the adapter is poorly made, but because the corresponding Nikon app is very limited and can freeze every now and then. Also, I thought the price was a bit high for it. However, I am satisfied with it and would recommend it.

Really liked this adapter Posted by: from: on Nikon - WU-1A Wireless Mobile Adapter - Black I wasn't sure what to expect from this adapter. I was intrigued with the product description and it was part of the reason I purchased my camera bundle. Once I received the camera and started taking pictures I was hopeful the Nikon WU-1A would work as easily as stated. It did! I just downloaded the app to my iPhone 6 Plus and followed the instructions. I plugged it into my camera, changed the wifi in my phone settings to the Nikon WU-1A and then opened the app to start transferring photos to my phone. It worked great! The only real problem I've had with the adapter is that it only allows one phone, at a time, to connect to it and transfer photos. At least that's what my experience has been. It would be nice to have multiple phones connected so other family members could transfer photos at the same time as opposed to one at a time. Other than that this was an unexpected surprise from my purchase. I really liked this product!

Should be cheaper price Posted by: from: Inglewood,CA on Got to say that I go plane spotting on the weekends and need something to help me transfer pictures into my phone or table. Have to admit that I was happy I bought this but turned out that you need to download Nikon app in order to view or download the pictures into your tablet/phone. In my opinion I thought it would be better if this would connect via Bluetooth since it would be more stable but turned out that it uses wi-fi. It becomes a hassle if you are connected to your camera and have wifi internet in which it becomes an unstable connection. The app does freezes, connected to my ipad in which then I came to notice that I have to connect wi-fi with the device but also had to put my tablet into airplane mode in order to have a stable connection. I believe that this should be a cheaper price since its a mediocre function. Do not get me wrong, it is easy to use.

It does its purpose Posted by: from: on I'm not sure if it's supposed to get hot when it's connected to the camera. After a few minutes of connecting the camera to my phone with this wifi adapter to pick out which photos to transfer into my phone I noticed this adapter is hot to the touch. I quickly transferred what I needed and unplugged from the camera and not leaving it in when not in use.

Way too slow on iOS Posted by: from: on I've tried using this three times with my Nikon D3300 and the results are always terrible. I'm not sure if it's the adapter itself or if Nikon's iOS app is that bad. I've tried their setup on my iPad Air 2, iPhone 6S Plus, and my new iPhone 7 Plus. Live view on my iPhone/iPad is slow, really slow. I understand there being a little lag between changes in the camera and changes to the display but it's more than just lag. The live view operates at an extremely slow frame rate that it's difficult to setup shots. I'm talking about 5fps, maybe 6fps at most. It's impossible to take a picture of anything fast moving. I also can't really adjust my camera's settings from the app. All I can do is select an area to focus on and take a picture. It's a lot to go through just for two things. An IR remote is going to perform better than this. I also have a hard time downloading pictures. My D3300 shoots 24.2 12-bit RAW pictures. iOS works with them, I made sure of that. But the pictures often take 3-4 minutes each to import them onto my iPhone/iPad and after that some of they might not display anything. It's a lot easier and faster to just pop the memory card out of the camera and insert it into a PC and/or the Lightning to SD card adapter (if you really want to use an iOS device). I would have returned this if I outright purchased it. Instead, the wi-fi adapter was bundled with my camera for free. It hasn't impressed me but at least I'm not having to return it for my $50 back. It's performance might be better on a higher end Nikon or the problems could be with the iOS app. I haven't tried it on Android but I don't see how it could be all that different.

Enjoy Having WiFi Access Posted by: from: on I have only been using this adapter for about a week, but I do not have any complaints. It's smaller than you think, so be aware of that and make sure you don't misplace it. You'll need to download the Nikon app for your phone/tablet, which is okay. The pictures show up on your device blurrier than they actually are (in preview), but once you download them, you'll get the full quality. You can also download them in a quality that's somewhat shrunk down for your phone/tablet, or download the full photo, which will give you the best quality. Those are a few tips.

Works but not great Posted by: from: on It works but it only kind of does what it's supposed to do. I was able to get the app on my phone but after downloading the picture to my phone I wasn't able to share them. The only way I could was by screen shooting each picture then crop them which took away the quality of the photo. Also I could not wirelessly send then to my laptop because it came with no default passcode to allow access.
