Nikon UT-1 adapter, enabling image transfer and remote camera operation when connected via Ethernet cable or wirelessly with in conjunction with the WT-5a wireless transmitter. When the UT-1 is connected to a Nikon D-SLR camera, an Ethernet network (wired network) can be used to transfer images directly from the camera to a computer or FTP server. The new device will also allow photographers to control the camera remotely from a computer.
The Nikon UT-1 is compatible with several Nikon D-SLR cameras, including the Nikon D4, Nikon D800, Nikon D800E as well as the Nikon D7000. With an Ethernet network connection, images can be automatically transferred as they are captured, while data can also be stored on a memory card or can be transferred and saved to a computer or FTP server.
More Efficient Workflow with the UT-1
When used with Nikon's Camera Control Pro 2 software that has been developed for studio and remote photography in the field, remote control over a variety of Nikon D-SLR camera functions from a computer is possible. Camera Control Pro 2 allows users to specify and adjust not only basic shooting settings like exposure mode, shutter speed and aperture setting, but also allows them to adjust white balance, use live view and even record video remotely. With remote control of camera operations in various situations such as a studio setting, a photo shoot or video production, images or video can be transferred directly to the computer, enabling imm ediate verification as they are captured. These communication functions significantly increase on-site work efficiency as clients and support staff can view the content as it is being captured.
Primary Features of the New Nikon UT-1
Wireless Network Support When Used in Combination with the Wireless Transmitter WT-5a
When used with the Wireless Transmitter WT-5a (sold separately), the UT-1's networking functions can be used over wireless networks. Nikon will also market an UT-1/WT-5a bundle that provides networking functions over both Ethernet and wireless networks.
Still images can be transferred as they are captured, while still images and video already stored on a memory card can be saved to acomputer or FTP server.
Transfer of Images to an FTP Server
Still images and video can be automatically uploaded and saved to an FTP server as they are captured, enabling transfer of a high volume of high-resolution image data captured by select D-SLR cameras. This option will allow for the verification of images from a remote location by those individuals not in the immediate vicinity of the camera.
Remote Camera Control from a Computer
When used with Camera Control Pro 2, remote control over a wide variety of Nikon D-SLR camera functions from a computer are possible. Camera Control Pro 2 allows users to specify and adjust shooting settings such as exposure mode, shutter speed, aperture, white balance, use live view photography and even record movies remotely. In addition, still images and video can be saved directly to the computer as they are recorded with remote shooting using Camera Control Pro 2.
Superior Handling for Efficient Studio and Field Photography
The UT-1 can be mounted on the camera's accessory shoe or on a tripod. When another accessory such as a Speedlight is mounted on the accessory shoe, the camera and the UT-1 can be mounted on a tripod using the optional SK-7 bracket for smooth handling.
Continuing to Connect Photographers
Nikon continues to make photography more efficient and connected for all levels of photographers, as evidenced by the Nikon D4 with its built-in Ethernet network functions, the Wireless Transmitter WT-5a and the new UT-1. What's more, the WU-1a and new WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapters can be used to easily transfer high-quality images captured with cameras like the Nikon D3200 and the new Nikon D600 to smart devices or to control the camera remotely, though remote control over movie recording is not supported. With the new Nikon COOLPIX S800c, Nikon has even developed a way for users to connect wirelessly to the Internet using operations similar to those found in smartphone devices. By continuously working to increase wireless network functionality and support for all of its digital cameras, from high-end D-SLR to compact digital cameras, Nikon strives to make connecting a simple and effortless task for users.
