2.0 out of 5 stars I suppose it works, November 16, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter for Nikon D600 Digital SLR (Electronics)
Here is the feedback I just sent to Nikon:

"I am quite offended that you consider the WU-1b's and it's accompanying software to be a suitable addition to the D600. Why would you bring such a gutless piece of software to the attention of people who are obviously serious about photography? One decent software developer and a few months time does not seem like too much to ask for a product that you guys are actively promoting. I am surprised that a company that I have always thought had extremely high standards of product quality would let something like this go to market. Boo on you Nikon, Boo."

Yes, you can see the live view image and change focal points. The clock sync feature is pretty slick. Outside of those features, the whole process is sloppy and slow. The app (iOS) crashes frequently and doesn't allow you to make ANY changes to your camera settings while it is connected. The idea that this is a good companion to a $2,000 camera is a joke. Not a very funny one.

I agree. I waited several weeks to get the adapter, then more weeks for them to update the software for iOs6. Still won't work on ipad. nominal functionality on the iPhone.

@ S. Kachgal
I might agree with you except that it is specified to work with iOS.
