Nice Addition

Kaiseal, B&H Photo
7 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I read many reviews on the wireless mobile adaptor and tend to disagree with the harshest. I purchased this unit because I needed something to assist me in low level shooting due to my inability to get low due to an injury. Upon setup I did experience disconnects but after about 5 tries it worked beautifully. I do shoot reasonably close to my setup.

Works as advertised

  • Excerpt: I purchased the WU-1B to use with the D610. It works as advertised. Remote shutter release and the ability to view the lens image on my IPad make it a useful accessory at a modest cost. The mobile utility software was created for a smartphone but will work on the iPad. The software is not included but can be downloaded from App Store.

Worked Instantly!

  • Excerpt: The WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter worked exactly like the literature said it would. The first time. I don't have the luxury of playing around - when a product works as it should - I am happy.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Remotely control (but not very remote)

  • Excerpt: An inexpensive means to remotely control your camera. Not too remote, however. Instead of the device joining an existing network, it generates it's own wi-fi network SSID. You then use your iOS device (or Droid device) to join that network. That's great for locations away from a regular network, but it would have been nice to have both choices available (create a network SSID OR join an existing network).
  • Pros: Good For Remote Locations, Inexpensive, Lightweight, Reliable
  • Cons: Limited functionality

Don't listen to the other reviewers here

cj, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This thing is rad. It's functionality should've been included in the newer cameras, but I'm not reviewing Nikon as a company, I'm reviewing the WU1b specifically. If you haven't figured out yet, the Nikon app is lame. What you need is a free Android app called DSLR Dashboard.... FREE. It adds an entirely new dimension by remote control of your camera. Very cool. iPhone or iPad users....

Not what I expected

Perry, B&H Photo
27 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I guess the wireless adapter does what it is designed to do fairly well, but it doesn't really do much. It links with my android phone and ipad without issue and allows me to focus where I want and take the picture, but I really haven't found a good reason to use it yet.
  • Pros: Easy To Use
  • Cons: Poor Design

OK, but . . .

BBrad, B&H Photo
26 December 2013
  • Excerpt: First, the good. Network connections are very easy, and the network has a fairly wide range. Works well with the WMU app. There are, however, some disappointments. It will not do live capture. In other words, it will not display the images on the WMU app as they are taken. The display command simply pulls thumbnails from the media card. Plus, with dual-card cams such as the D610, you can only pull images from slot 1.

Not Ready for Primetime

jeremyv10, B&H Photo
18 December 2013
  • Excerpt: This is a great concept, but the extremely limited functionality of the accompanying app makes it virtually useless. The only reason I didn't send it back is the hope that Nikon might fix the app at some point in the future.<br /><br />All this does is activate the shutter button remotely (when you can get the connection established and before it drops). While using it, you can't adjust any settings on the camera without switching the app off first.
  • Cons: Difficult To Use, Not Functional
