Question

D800 Control through i-Pad

Is there some hardware/software combination that would allow control of a D800 through an i-Pad? (Something like Camera Control Pro offering Live View and camera control of a D800 through a new i-Pad.)

Fortunately a few options are available, though none quite as direct as using Nikon Camera Control Pro. The iTunes Store lists a few (use the keyword "Camera Remote Control"#. fortunately, none of he solutions I've tested offer direct control - they require a computer to act as a pass-through.

- DSLR Camera Remote #OnOne Software# offers free and paid versions, and an eloquent solution for remote trigerring and control. The free version offers basic functionality, while the paid #"Professional"# version adds a host of control options. Try the free version and, if it works for you, upgrade to the Professional version.

- Capture Pilot #PhaseOne Software# works with Phase One Capture One to provide remote triggering functions from the iPad. It also offers a very useful Remote View capability, where images captured from the camera to the computer can be remotely viewed on the iPad. It onlys with Capture One software, so you'll need to purchase a license for Capture One as well #but Capture One is an outstanding image editor!#.

Unfortunately the WT-4 transmitter is not compatible with the D90. There may be other third party options available, but they would not be supported by Nikon. For short range wireless, you may want to check out the Eye-Fi wireless card. It's an affordable solution, and works well for very short ranges (within a few feet of your computer). There are also iPad and Android apps available to support transferring images from the D90 to portable devices.

Question

Is there by any means to operate a Nikon WT-4 in an area VOID of Wi-Fi

I am planning to buy a Nikon WT-4 to go with my Nikon D3X and Nikon D700... is there by any chance any way to operate the Nikon WT-4 in an area void of Wi-Fi services. I often have to go to the deep forest and deserted area for my shoots so i was just curious. So once again, I want to use it with the Ad - Hoc setup so does it require Wi-Fi??

Question

Concerns over transfer speed and power consumption with the new D800

Hi,

I'm thinking of buying the new D800, but I wonder if the WT-4a is up to the task?

I currently own the D700 and WT-4a. I usually shoot and inspect the image on my Mac, right away.
The time it takes for the WT-4a to put a 12MP image on my Mac is about 5-10 seconds. It's slow, but bearable. Power consumption per image is huge - the WT4-a battery lasts for about 30-45 minutes of work. In fact, I always have 2 spare batteries standing by.

That being said, and given the 36MP size of the D800 images, I doubt that I'll be able to continue and use the WT-4a.

I don't have a clue why Nikon feels that a quality WiFi option is only needed on the new D4.
Call me naive, but I'm still waiting for Nikon to come up with a better solution than the WT-4a for the D800. They can refresh the product and add 802.11n support, or let the D800 use the new WT-5, or do something completely different.

Just do it already.

To sum up, I wish there was a blazing fast, power-efficient WiFi option for the D800.

Thanks,
-S.

D4 includes a pre-processing data chip (before submission to the WT-5) that helps increasing pictures wireless transfer speed. For space saving reasons, this engine was not integrated into the D800. However, the D800 remains compatible with the WT-4a.

Yes, you can configure an ad-hoc profile to work in Windows 7. I have ad-hoc profiles for a two Windows 7/64 bit machine; it works just fine. A couple of notes:

1 - You will need to configure firewall exceptions for Windows Defender or any other host-based firewalls. Nikon's PTP Enumerator uses TCP port 15740 and UDP Port 5353. If you are unsure how to configure your firewall settings, check with the vendor (Microsoft, McAfee, Symantec, etc.# for detailed instructions.

2 - When using an ad-hoc profile, you will notice a delay as the IP settings on the host #computer# are set. Usually this will be about one minute. You can determine the current IP from a command window #Start-Run-CMD, then type IPCONFIG). In ad-hoc mode, your system will automatically configure an ad-hoc address, usually 169.xxx.xxx.xxx.

3 - Note that the range for ad-hoc will be somewhat less than infrastructure; I usually try to keep the camera within 15 feet of the host computer.

Unfortunately, there is no way to buy just the antenna. It does not have a model or product number. Our service center should be able to replace it. Feel free to contact technical support for more information. Technical support contact information can be found at support.nikonusa.com
