For those that rate this device low because it disconnects. The problem isn't the WU-1b or the app. The problem is actually your device. Your device wants a connection to the Internet and since this can't get to the Internet if you have another WiFi network in range that your phone or iPad is setup to connect to it will abandon the WU-1b in favor of the other connection. Remove your other network and it works great. Response time is a little slow but it is fantastic to be able to be able to check focus on the larger screen. It is extremely helpful if you are in a tight space and can't get behind your computer. Being able to touch the screen to select the focus point is quick and easy. Response is a bit slow so this isn't the release mechanism for taking fast pictures of subjects like kids.

App is buggy and crashes frequently as you use it. Restarts but it is annoying. Functionality is limited, as described in product description. If the app allowed more camera control this would be worth the cost . As it is, it is an expensive remote with wireless download capability. Raw files can be viewed but mine would not download

Helpfull product

By

Comments about Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter:

I just brought the Wu-1b a few days ago so that after taking photos I can quickly access them using my Ipad/ Iphone in order to review or share them. I was tired of taking photos and having to wait until I got home to load/edit them and then send them to family or friends. I use this product with the D600. First let me say, its a pretty helpful tool in doing what I just explained, however let me clarify two issues that I have with it that I misunderstood before purchasing it. First I was under the impression that once I took a picture with the adapter connected to the camera and the ipad/phone that it would automatically appear on my device in order for me to review. Well that's incorrect. Once you take a photo(s) you must then go into the Nikon App, access the photos via the app and then select the photo you want to review. This was somewhat a disappointment however not a deal breaker. Secondly, I noticed that once I took a photo and then selected it to view, that the photo was very pixelated whether I viewed it on the iphone or Pad which made me very upset and I started to feel as if I wasted my money on this product. However what I later discovered is that once you take a photo(s), you then have to "select" those photos and then "download" them. Once you download your photo and then review that downloaded photo the pixelated problem is pretty much cleared and it appears to be a very much easier photo on the eyes. This discovery was a kinda a "no brainer" discovery after it was made and it makes sense to me now. Overall it is a good product and so far I enjoy it.

Easily connects to tablet and uploads to Photo account.

By 

from Nikon user since college in the 70's

Comments about Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter:

The first time I used it to take photos of granddaughter at hospital. It set up easily to Nexus tablet and D610. I had photos online in minutes. I did this in the hospital using their Wi-Fi. Not the best instructions but easily repeatable. Four and one half stars for clunky in the way dongle and high battery drain. Next camera I buy will have built in wi-fi Thought about eye-fi or similar SD card, but chose the dongle approach.

I have an iPad (3) iPhone 5s iPhone 6 and a Nikon d600. I couldn't connect any of these to the most useless device in the world, the wU-1b adapter.

Comments about Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter:

I use this with the Helicon Remote App on my Samsung phone and tablet and it works great. You can change almost every setting, preview shots, save photos to the tablet or camera and more. Easy to setup and the results are awesome!

No IPAD Support

Comments about Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter:

System works as advertised for Android connection. There is no iPAD app. There is an iPhone app.... which means Nikon has not kept the app current.

Not worth the price

By 

from Maryland, USA

Comments about Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter:

The Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter worked only one time on my Galaxy S3 smart phone. After that, it did not work. It does not work with my iPad either. Bottom line: A worthless piece from Nikon. It is useless. The warranty has expired so I am stuck with it.

I have been struggling with this adapter for almost a year and have given up. Lose connection ad distances of less than 1ft. Have tried with multiple devices with the same failure. I would not recommend.

Useless

Comments about Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter:

This is a useless gadget without support for the most popular operating system in the world. What is Nikon thinking, not creating a Windows app?
