In at this time’s put up about Nikon’s D3200 announcement we additionally talked about in passing that the WU-1a Wi-fi Adapter was introduced on the similar time. However after taking a more in-depth look, we expect the adapter deserves slightly extra element and much more pleasure.
Not like most wi-fi adapters, the WU-1a doesn’t simply help you switch pictures out of your digicam on to your laptop or good telephone, it additionally works the opposite means round — kind of. Nikon customers who select to pony up the $60 required to get one of many adapters may also have the ability to use their Android telephone as a dwell view for the digicam, and might even use the app to manage the shutter launch.
The extent of management supplied by the adapter is spectacular in its personal proper. Not like most WiFi-enabled cameras or reminiscence playing cards, you’ll have the ability to use a “browser” interface to sift by way of your pictures and select which of them are uploaded the place. The digicam even takes care of reducing the decision for you.
The one actual draw back is that the WU-1a doesn’t but help iOS units, however Nikon has already introduced that help will likely be coming within the fall. And though it at present solely works with the D3200, you would possibly wish to preserve your fingers crossed for a firmware replace that expands compatibility.
