I agree, this should be made available for all of the Digital SLR cameras (ex: D60, D90, D3000, D5000, etc.)
It should be as simple as a firmware update to the camera. How about it? I personally have the D90, and love it. This would be a great, and very welcomed, addition. You have a market out here, come after it.

All though you have nailed your reply, I don't think this adapter will work with the older models as none of their software infrastructure has capabilities to support the new drivers of this accessory.
Nikon will have to work out of their skins to make an adapter install itself(and its drivers) on older models which I don't see as happening .
However, I am sure any new Nikon model released after d3200 will have this as an add-on.

Why does this question require a phone call? Seems like a simple question asking if and when support for other DSLRs is on the road map for this product. Your traditional wireless unit is ridiculously expensive for what it is.

This is the correct product that should be supported on all cameras with this USB port.
If this product is unsuccessful, it will be not because of price or its physical profile but because its functionality was severely limited for marketing reasons only. If you do not open this product's capabilities up to support all USB cameras with PC, tablet, and phone applications that can do not only remote controlling of camera function but also full tethering and file transfer then you leave this market wide open to the third party solutions to do so as soon as they reverse engineer this product.

It is time for the next major revision of CaptureNX with a new interface and support for this module and multiple camera support.

IPhone App is called WMAU -- Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility. Downloaded today on iPhone 5. You'll have to setup Nikon_WU wireless through your iPhone Settings --> WiFI --> Nikon_WU.

It connected fine with my new D3200 and I could see Camera photos fine. However it kept disconnecting when I tried to download photos to my iPhone.

The WU-1B adapter is not a bluetooth device. It is a wifi device, and there is no paring code needed.
1)Plug the WU-1B adapter into the camera and turn the camera on.

2)Press and hold down the button on the WU-1B adapter until the light turns red, then release the button.

3)Go to the Smartphone,Ipad, or Tablet settings and turn the wifi setting on. You should see the WU-1B adapter network listed among the available network. The name should look something like Nikon_WXXXXXXX. Connect to the network.

4) Launch the wireless mobile adapter utility application.

Note: Nikon Wireless Moblile adapter utility (WMAU) can be downloaded from your smart device application store and it has the WU-1B setup instructions built into it.

You are using the wrong connection setting. Watch this Nikon video:

You need to tap on manual in the connection setup and choose WPA button, press and hold the button for about 5 seconds, no password need.

I spoke to Customer Service and they suggested resetting the WU-1a and using "airplane mode" with wi-fi on.

Did NOT help.

The hoops I had to jump through to give my client the images, though ultimately successful, was embarrassing. This is the second time with the same client I had to deal with this. Not good for someone's reputation.

Any other ideas how to correct this?

Thanks in advance.

No, the WU-1a does not support the D800. It only works with the D3200.

For the D800, you would use the WT-4a for Wi-Fi connectivity or the WT-5a and the UT-1 together.

Try turning off Bluetooth.

I could successfully connect to my iPad and scroll through images on the card, but as soon as I selected download, immediate disconnect. Didn't matter if itr was 1 picture or 100.

Read elsewhere to turn off bluetooth.

As soon as I did that, no more disconnects - pics transferred without problem.

The WU-1 wireless adapter has all of a sudden stopped working to my iPhone.

The Wu-1 was working, but not well as it would not keep the connection very well. Now it will only flash green when the screen on the camera is on, but when it goes to black it stops. I have tried resetting the WU-1 adapter, but that has not worked.

This for the D3200 to the iPhone. Thank you.

I did check that I had the current software, so thank you. I realized it was due to the battery. Since the WU-1a takes up so much battery it will not connect when the battery gets below a certain percent. I recharged and now it is working again. Yeah!

Did you upgrade your phone to IOS 6.01? There is not an upgrade yet for the app so that could be your problem.

I would LOVE to see someone develop a third party app for the WU-1a. It is marginally convenient with my D3200 but you have to toggle back and forth between phone and camera to change exposure settings. It would be nice to do everything from the app. It would also be nice to control the file size when sharing. Most people don't want and 10MB photo via text.

Nikon offers software development kits (SDKs) free of charge to those developing products and services that incorporate Nikon digital imaging products. Please go to https://sdk.nikonimaging.com/apply/ and fill out the SDK application. Since there is no listing for the WU-1a or D3200 on the form, choose any DSLR from the SDK list. When you get to the page of the form where you enter your contact information please describe your requirements in detail. If an SDK is available that fits your needs you will be sent downloading instructions.

I just purchased the WU-1a Mobile Adapter and I have spent over five hours trying to find and download the Utility. No luck. I'm extremely disappointed.

First, are you upgraded to iOS 6, if not, install it.
Do an itunes search for Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility.
It is there, I just checked.

Question

Export image from WAMU app into additional photo editing apps.

"Mail,, Facebook, Twitter, Open in Another App", are all good options. When I choose "open in another app", I'd like to use one that isn't on the list that automatically is offered. In fact, I don't know why those apps are offered…(Phonto, Camera + and Evernote (?)). How can I add apps to that list? How do I remove apps from that list? I want to open the photo in apps like Snapseed and Instagram, and then post them online.

Thanks! Tom

This is an IOS issue, not Nikon WMAU. if you lunch the photos app and click on one of the pictures taken with the ipad camera, then click the share icon, you will be shown only the apps that came with the IOS. You cannot add to that list or delete any app from that list. It will give an option for facebook even if you delete the facebook app because it was included in the ios update. If you want to upload pictures to instagram, the instagram app has an option in it for uploading pictures. You can navigate directly to the location of the pictures you took with the WMAU and upload them.

Question

Windows Phone 8 compatibility

I see, that You are not supporting Windows Phone, but why don't You share communication protocol documentation, so some developers could implement it for themselves.

Thanks, it's useful to know, that SDK exists. Unfortunately, it's not gonna work for WP 7, because it does not support invoking native code and for WP 8 because it requires dll's compiled for ARM processor instead of x86. But thanks a lot, I think, I'll use sdk in some other projects.
