About Nikon WT-4A

Connect the D300 to Nikon's newly developed Wireless Transmitter WT-4a and discover the convenience and efficiency of extended image transfer and printing options via IEEE 802.11b/g/a wireless connections. Image data can also be transferred directly to a computer's hard disk drive as you shoot, while other features also contribute to a faster, more efficient digital imaging workflow. New Thumbnail Select mode permits thumbnail display of images taken by up to five wirelessly connected cameras on a single computer's display, with only the user-selected images being downloaded and saved to the computer. Wireless Transmitter WT-4a also features wide-ranging support for network and security protocols, making it suitable for use with a variety of different systems. Image transfer via wired 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX Ethernet connections is also supported.



The Wireless Transmitter WT-4/4a is powered by a single Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL3e or the AC Adapter EH-6, which is sold separately.

The Nikon WT-4A is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Professional among others.

Good product, but slow transfer rates

Works as advertised, will wirelessly transmit the photos, as they are taken, from the camera to your computer. Setup is a bit tricky and some technical computer-knowledge is needed to do it right. Works well with a Mac, but the setup software (needed once) only runs on Windows. Nikon stated that Mac software is in the works. I wish it supported 802.11n for faster transfers.

Expensive but works exactly as we wanted

By

from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada  -  Professional

We pretty much never shoot tethered in a professional setting, but recently we expanded to event photography with a kiosk for prints to purchase. Our system needed lower res images in near real time ftp'd to a web based iPad 3 solution. The wt-4 allowed us to keep the NEFs on our nikon d3 and d7000 while cleaning up the jpegs after sending. This made our custom solution complete and super reliable. We had many old batteries left over from our d200 so we decided not to purchase the power supply. This was probably a mistake. The non nikon batteries lasted less than an hour, where as the Nikon branded batteries lasted almost 400 pictures each. Our base station was very close to our photographer, so signal strength was never an issue. Nice that it works with the D800 we will defiantly use it for Raws in our home studio with our D4.

Crayons are faster

By

from Manhattan, KS  -  Professional

For what it costs, it's not the best way to go. I purchased this under the guise that I could should tethered without being concerned with wires. And you can but man does it take forever to do. I shoot commercially and I have clients view images as I shoot. It's annoying having to wait 5 minutes per image when trying work with talent and locations on a schedule. Setup is a bit complicated but it works. I would rather deal with cables than deal with the bottleneck of using this.

Not that great

By

from Undisclosed

For the price this is sold at Nikon could do much better. It's hard to set up, not very stable, NOT wireless (has a USB cord), and it could be faster. But, that said it's the only one there is... So, I use it everyday.

Wireless???

By

from Undisclosed

What part of wireless is a three foot USB cord? The wireless for the D2x was great. It worked as part of the camera. It fit nicely on the bottom of the camera and used the power from the camera. This unit is a box with a battery slot in it. It has a three foot USB cord to connect it to the camera... When the battery dies there is no warning in the camera. The D2x wireless everything would die, much nicer. As this is a little more stable and the signal is strong it's nice, but all the nice things really get out weighed by the bad stuff.

This product is worth every penny.

Even though it required my son who is a computer analyst to set up the transmitter and my PC, I'm sure that I could have also done it. He didn't seem to have any problems at either end.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Brad C  Is this useable on a Nikon D3X?
PHILLIP H  I do not know for sure. I have the original D3. Nikon USA would be your best source for a definitive answer.
DEAN P  Will this work wth a D-700 and what proframs would be required to operate quickly?
Andrew R  Yes, this unit is compatible with the D-700. It operates in two basic configurations: Image Transfer mode: Images stored in a memory card and those just taken can be transferred and saved on a computer or FTP server. PC mode: With Camera Control Pro 2 (optional), camera settings can be controlled and images taken can be transferred and saved on a computer.
Shopper  if i have a nikon d3 and a wt-4a and an iPad 1 can these 3 items preform the wireless transfer?
ROBERT K  The WT-4A uses a wireless Ad-Hoc Network (PC-to-PC) or can transfer via FTP. This requires the receiving PC to be capable of running one of these two services. Currently the iPAD does not natively support this (you may have more options if you 'jailbreak' it). There are a number of articles on the web about how to shoot directly to your iPAD using various means - several by well respected photographers. I have not had the need to attempt this (I use my Macbook Pro for this purpose) - so I am not sure how difficult the process is to configure.
