5.0 out of 5 stars So tiny. 23 Jan 2013
By The Man
Verified Purchase
This really only has one function but it does it perfectly. I can now see the picture to be taken on my Samsung Galaxy 111 phone and fire the shutter of my Nikon D600 from a distance with no wires. This is exactly what I wanted. The unit is so, so small but has a tether to attach it to the camera strap and a protective case which also fits on the camera strap. Excellent design and really simple to set up. It would have been nice to control more of the basic camera functions from the phone but I knew it didn't when I bought it so no problem. Hopefully the app will be expanded to do more. In the meantime I have to give it 5 stars as it does what it says on the tin and does it beautifully.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nifty wireless solution 16 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
This thing is tiny - you'll need to use the supplied wrist strap cord to tie it on to your camera bag so you don't lose it! It comes in a small plastic casing to protect from the elements when not in use, which is handy. Very simple to set up and use - even I managed to get pictures to my phone within minutes of unwrapping the packaging. It does drop the connection now and then, however, so if you want something that will transmit high volumes of pictures continuously then this is probably not going to meet your needs. But for moderate numbers of pictures where there is no absolute urgency it's great.
I got this mainly as I wanted to be able to send pictures to my tablet. Unfortunately the tablet I have (Sweet) turns out to be incompatible with the App needed ("Wireless Mobile Utility" by Nikon) to operate the transmitter! I even got the guys at Sweet Tablets to check this for me (which they did, very efficiently). So my word of caution is - check the compatible devices before you buy!
Despite this I decided to hang on the WU-1B as it is a nifty piece of kit and if I can persuade my wife to buy a compatible tablet I'll be quids in again!

I'm using the wireless adapter paired with an iPhone 4s with iOS6 installed. I'm finding the wireless adapter really very good. I bought it so that I could take pictures with my DSLR and then transfer a selected image(s) to my phone, do a quick edit in Snapseed (if you haven't tried it, it's brilliant! Free (I think) on Android and iOS), and then upload the image to Facebook/email/Twitter etc whilst on the go. For example, when the 2012 Olympics were on I wanted to share the day with friends as the day progressed but was limited to uploading photos to Facebook taken with my phone - frustrating when I had my previous Nikon DSLR with me that could take better quality photos in a wider range of circumstances. This little adapter solves that problem.

I have my camera set up to record raw files to the card in slot 1, and medium res jpeg files to the card in slot 2. From the phone app you can choose which card to read from, my phone cannot process raw files and the files are huge anyway, so I set it to read the jpeg card, and do a proper edit on the raw files once home in front of my computer.

The unit does use up a lot of battery power on your phone and camera. I wouldn't recommend leaving them permanantly connected (by default they disconnect after 300secs, at least on my unit anyway) This is explained in the user manual (which Nikon for some reason have chosen not to include with the wireless adapter - it would be a good idea too, Nikon, because it addresses a lot of the problems/questions people are having). To maintain the wireless connection, both camera and phone have to be permanently on, preventing them both going into power saving mode in their normal ways. The manual can be found here: [...

3.0 out of 5 stars limited functionality 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
this gadget allows you to take a photo on a compatible Nikon SLR using a mobile phone. You can also move photographs onto your mobile. This is inherently useful if you wish to share photos/videos quickly when away from normal IT facilities. However it cannot alter any settings on the camera so everything must be set up before hand. I thought it would be useful taking shots of Northern lights in Norway, but in practice I found it too fiddly and there was no great advantage over using a small tripod and long exposure settings. It is a very small item and easy to lose, so I have attached the case to camera strap, and the adapter itself by its cord to the strap, if you don't do this you will lose it. Finally the wifi link seems a bit temperamental. So, overall a useful gadget but I feel something more capable would be more useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great 13 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
Was amazed how small this is and at first you wonder what you're paying for. However, very easy to use, works fine with my iPhone and iPad. All files transferred (would like it to be a bit quicker but hey) easily and the app is really simple to use with this.

Would recommend for customer demos and location shoots, especially where bright light can sometimes make camera screen difficult to see.
