About Nikon WT-5A

The WT-5A Wireless Transmitter is designed for use with the Nikon D4 D-SLR camera. It can also be used on the D810, D800, D800E and D7000 D-SLRs when used along with the UT-1 Communication Unit. It enables camera control from an iPhone or iPad and also supports HD video recording. Images are transmited to an FTP server or computer at double the speed when compared to the previous WT-4A transmitter.

In PC mode it's also possible to operate the D4 via Camera Control Pro 2 (not included), and release up to 10 remote D4/WT-5A combinations using one master camera. The WT-5A has a range of 590' and does not require batteries, taking power from the connected camera.

Image Transmission Mode
Transmit images to an FTP server or computer two times faster than the Nikon WT-4A.

WT-5A + UT-1 Communication Unit
The WT-5A, when connected to the UT-1 Communication Unit, can be connected to the D810, D800, D800E or D7000 D-SLRs.

2 Problems.... 1 Actual & 1 Conditional


Problem 1: Kept losing the connection with my Core I7 Lenovo Laptop. It would automatically reconnect but that really interrupted workflow. :( Conditional Problem: The High Price...if it worked well I would not mind the high price of this wireless option, but the WT-5A's inconsistent dis- and re-connecting made it unworkable for me. A Hard-Wired LAN works great and is $25 for a very long and very good ethernet Cable.

Expensive But In The End Worth It


I've had this wireless unit for close to 2 months now and I'm finding it almost (but not quite) indispensable. The iPad and iPhone applications are the most often used. The iPad viewfinder and camera controls are amazing. Change focus with one touch anywhere on the screen. Select new apertures, shutter or switch modes. On the iPhone, my camera back offers more space than the iPhone screen does but the phone has become my de-facto remote release. I've used the wireless file transfer feature but frankly it can be faster to simply stick with the card reader for uploads to your computer. It doesn't help that the wireless port on the camera (D4) is a bit awkward to use as it's difficult to get the port cover far enough out of the way to allow for connecting the WT5. I'll give it 4 stars instead of 5 because of the less than smooth camera connection process I talked about and the price. However, I'm a big fan of going wireless wherever possible and this is a great step forward in getting rid of more cables.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Can This be used with my Nikon D7000 Camera?
Andrew R  Unfortunately no, this unit is only compatible with the D4.
Charles L  Will this work on my D2sx ?
ROBIN D  Charles.. I am not sure... I shoot with a Nikon D-4. Instructions are horrible... But Nikon Support helped walk me through setting up an ad hoc network that works beautifully... Call Nikon Support to get specific comparability questions answers AND getting it set up...(tried to include the number but Amazon rejected the number in this answer) Good Luck... If it's compatible ... Your going to love it!
Shopper  Besides a laptop, iPhone and iPad, will this device work with other smart phone's browsers? Specifically, a smart phone with Android OS?
JOHN O  Technically, it will work with any browser. Truthfully, that is not the intent of this device. This device is meant to integrate with Nikon Capture software, which does some mind-boggling things. Using it with a blackberry would result in the most expensive remote cable ever...
