5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent implementation of wireless for the D4, November 13, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nikon WT-5A Wireless Transmitter (Camera)
I'm thrilled with this wireless link. It is small and unobtrusive. I have used it with an iPad and an iPhone for remote camera control. It's by far the best remote you can use, since you can preview the image on-screen. I have also used it to download photos to my computer. It's not as fast as a hard-wired connection or card reader, but is still quite good. It's also a great way to review your shooting work in the field on a larger screen. I find it difficult to critically judge a photo on the 3" screen on the D4, but I can look at the photos on my iPad to get immediate feedback if I need to make adjustments. I've also used it to preview photos for shooting subjects when doing portrait work. Again - the real time feedback allows you to make technical adjustments, and your subject can adjust their actions also.

The web-based interface is pretty good. It's not perfect, but is reasonably logical.

I've set it up with two profiles - one using my general network and router, and another for a field ad-hoc profile that is perfect for remote control applications. I found the setup to be fairly straightforward, but I am a techno-weenie and used to setting up networks. If you're not used to doing this, the manual is ok but not great. A "simple setup" guide would be good.

This is small enough that I tend to leave it on the camera almost all of the time.

A few improvements:

(1) I wish it had a small hardware on/off switch. I try to turn it off from the menus when not using it, but often forget. Luckily the D4 battery is pretty tolerant of the relatively low power draw of this device.

(2) It is just ever-so-slightly too big to comfortably fit a USB cable into the adjacent socket. If I am going to plug in the camera, I need to take this off to not worry about forcing the socket.

(3) The rubber socket cover flops around when I have this attached. I expect I will end up ripping it off accidentally some time.
