Not directly with Nikon, but as I said in my previous answer, with "ShutterSnitch" it works just fine.

I apologize, my previous answer was incorrect. You cannot currently operate the UT-1 with the WT-5 in HTTP mode on a D800. The D800/WT-5/UT-1 combo only works in transfer and PC mode so smart devices are not currently supported.

You need the app "ShutterSnitch" though since HTTP is not supported with the UT-1. It's available in the App Store and pretty expensive for an app.

answer 4
The UT-1 together with the WT-5A lets you create a wireless (Wi-Fi) connection with the D800.
With the WT-5A in HTTP mode you can use the web browser on your iPhone® and/or iPad®** to operate camera controls or begin Live View shooting, including starting and stopping HD video and more.

The UT-1 can be mounted on the camera accessory shoe or on a tripod via the tripod socket. To mount the UT-1 on the camera when a flash unit or other accessory is mounted on the accessory shoe, use an optional SK-7 bracket.

It can be use wirelessly if you connect the WT-5 to it but you will need to purchase both the UT-1 and the WT-5, OR Just buy the WT-4 which offers both wireless and ethernet capability.

Question

I want to control and transfer files to the D800 or D4 with my iPad\iPhone

I have both a D800 and D4. I want to be able to control the D800 or D4 camera and view pictures on my iPhone\iPad.

First, is the only thing I need for the D800 is this UT-1?
I see the WT-5 connects to it, but why would you need it if you have the communicator?

Second, on the D4, doesn't the WT-5 already communicate with the iPhone? Why would you need the WT-5 communicator?

The UT-1 allows you to create a wired (Ethernet) connection with the D800.
The UT-1 together with the WT-5A lets you create a wireless (Wi-Fi) connection with the D800.

You do not need to use the UT-1 with the D4, as it has a built-in Ethernet port, just the WT-5A.

Question

WT-5 + UT-1 on a D800 in HTTP mode/iOS

Catherine said in another answer this would be possible. I don't think so. How is this supposed to work without a menu to setup HTTP (IP, password etc.)? The D800 is not prepared for the WT-5 hence has no menu for it. Neither the UT-1 or the WT-5 have displays, so no possibility to set it up there either.
HTTP with the WT-5 via the UT-1 on a D800 is most likely not possible. If it's still possible, I would like to know how to set it up.

Thanks!

With the D800,WT-5 + UT-1, you can take pictures and wirelessly transfer them to a computer or FTP server, or wirelessly control the camera from a computer using optional Camera Control Pro 2 software.

The full setup instruction is in the UT-1 manual. PDF Link below.

The wireless transmitter utility for mac and windows which is needed for the setup can be downloaded from the link below.

Question

Might be a dumb question

I'm buying all new equipment. I will be using a Pocketwizard on my D7200's hot shoe to control all 3 of my Einstein Lights. If I want to also use this device to transfer immediately to my server is there a work around? Either with this or my lighting? I don't want to buy this if I won't be able to use my lights in conjunction with it. Again, this might be a really dumb question for the pro's.

I had the same issue to work out when I looked into the UT-1. You will need a bracket (SK-7 bracket or one of your choosing) to mount the UT-1. The UT-1 will connect to your camera with the USB cord, but you will have to run an ethernet cord to the computer from the UT-1 to transfer files. If you want that to be wireless like I did, you have to purchase the WT-5 to attach to the top of the UT-1, plus have a wireless adapter. We're using the Airlink 101.
