    Bought this to use with a Nikon D7100 DSLR. I also downloaded the free Nikon App to run on an Ipad/Iphone. The little adapter is really small, it fits on a 2p coin without going over the edge of the coin anywhere. Managed to get a connection to my Ipad with no problems and connected the Nikon app also with no problems. I did notice that by default the WU-1a created an open un-secured link. You can create a password protected connection using the Nikon Ipad app (this feature seems poorly documented) but it would seem to be too easy for a new user to leave the link un secured and presumably anyone could connect to your camera if you have the WU-1a plugged in and you are not using it yourself! I noticed a few connection problems when I first used this (dropped connections) but an internet search provided a possible solution that seemed to work for me which was to turn off Bluetooth on the Ipad. Dont know if this would work for everyone.

    The Nikon App is VERY basic and only allows you to download pictures and also acts as a very basic shutter release although you can get live view on your ipad. I had a look around on the net and found an app called QDSLR Dashboard (google it) that works on ipads, Iphones, PCs etc. This is MUCH better and will connect to the WU-1a allowing full wireless control of the camera settings including aperture, shutter speed, ISO etc as well as having a lot of other features. The PC version was free but the Ipad app does have a small cost, but was worth it. QDSLR Dashboard makes the WU-1a much more useful for me.

    The WU-1a is now a great buy! I actually quite like the concept of physically "unplugging" the wifi capability on a camera. I was never entirely happy with built in WiFi on cameras as I could never be 100% sure that it was deactivated when I didn't want to use it, but that's just me and my slightly paranoid attitude to these things!

    Very easy to set up and it's a useful tool to have. I bought this for my nikon d5200 and use it to transfer files to iPhone and pc. I also use it as a remote control. It would be great if the app itself would be updated but overall, it's user friendly and a must have.

    The Nikon WU-1a is a bargain-priced wifi adaptor for particular models of camera — bargain priced, that is, by comparison with the £100s adaptors for the D800 and the D4. Surprisingly, though, the WU-1a supports the Nikon Df, a full-frame professional camera which shares the same sensor as the D4. With the two together, you can download images straight to your smartphone, or use the phone to control the camera, live preview remotely, and take pictures.

    I use this with the Df and an iPhone 6. I find it works fine with the free Nikon app, but I also use it with QDslr, which offers more complete control. I continue to be baffled about the size and price of the WiFi adaptors for the D800 and the D4. In terms of bridging a Nikon to the internet, this is fine, although the download of images is not the most speedy, nor the connection entirely robust.

    This unit is supplied with a nifty little carry case, which goes onto the camera's strap. This is brilliant, because this little jigger is only useful if you have it with you, but far too easy to misplace. You can't leave it on all the time, because it drains battery and sticks out. The carry case is only as big as a Lego 4-brick, and doesn't get in the way.

    You can't use this with the HDMI cable plugged in: it physically doesn't fit.

    I was delighted to discover this for a reasonable add-on price, and am pleased with its operation.

    This is terrible - drops signal repeatedly and only connects initially maybe 10% of the time. I wish I had read reviews before I purchased as this is a total waste of £40. Such a shame as when it DOES work, it's exactly what I need but end up wasting hours trying to get it to connect. I give up in the end and transfer the good old fashioned way. Very disappointing, please don't waste your time or money.

    I'm a little disappointed with the product. You connect to your smart phone and it should allow you to download and view the photos off your camera. It will only allow me to download five photos, before I lose connection and have to reconnect. Must be easier to just carry on using the traditional method of downloading to laptop.

    Really valuable accessory for cameras without WiFi. It gives you another option for downloading and sharing your photos via your phone / tablet without fiddling with cards or cables.
    It doesn't enable full control of your camera, just a live view and shutter release. So no movie mode, alas.
    Comes with a handy box you can hang from the camera. You will want to keep it safe and close because it is tiny and easily lost in a bag somewhere.
