Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the Nikon UT-1 Communication Unit With WT-5A. When connected to a digital-SLR camera, an Ethernet (wired) network can be used to transfer images from the camera to a computer or FTP server, or to control the camera remotely from a computer. When used with the Wireless Transmitter WT-5 (available separately), the same functions can be performed over a wireless network.

The UT-1 is compatible with the Nikon D810, D4S, D4, D800, and D800E cameras for professional and advanced amateur photographers, as well as the D7100 and D7000 for photo hobbyists. With an Ethernet network connection, still images can be automatically transferred as they are captured, and still images and movies already stored on a memory card can be transferred and saved to a computer or FTP server.

In addition, when the WT-5 is connected to the UT-1, smooth image transfer over a wireless network is possible. Nikon plans to market an UT-1/WT-5 bundle, Communication Unit Wireless Kit UT-1WK. When used with Camera Control Pro 2, remote control software developed for studio and remote photography in the field (available separately), remote control over a wide variety of Nikon digital-SLR camera functions from a computer is possible.

Camera Control Pro 2 allows users to specify and adjust not only basic shooting settings such as exposure mode, shutter speed, and aperture setting, but also allows them to adjust white balance, use live view photography, and even record movies remotely. With remote control over camera operations, such as in a studio setting, images are transferred directly to the computer, enabling immediate verification of photos as they are captured.

These communications functions significantly increase on-site work efficiency for all photographers, beginning with professionals. With the combination of the D4 and its built-in Ethernet network functions, the WT-5, and the UT-1, Nikon is working to make photography more efficient for professional and advanced amateur photographers. The Wireless Mobile Adapter WU-1a and WU-1b can be used to easily transfer high quality images captured with cameras such as the D3200 and D600 to a smart device, or to control the camera remotely (remote control over movie recording is not supported).

Wireless connection to the Internet using operations similar to those to which smart phone users are accustomed is also possible with the COOLPIX S800c. By continuously working to increase wireless network functionality and support for all of its digital cameras, from high-end digital-SLRs to compact digital cameras, Nikon is helping users of its cameras to remain connected.

  • Wireless Transfers Available with WT-5A - When used with the WT-5 (available separately), UT-1 networking functions can be used over wireless networks. Nikon also markets an UT-1/WT-5 bundle that provides networking functions over both Ethernet and wireless networks.
  • Transfer Images While Shooting - Still images can be transferred as they are captured, and still images and movies already stored on a memory card can be saved to a computer or FTP server.
  • Transfer Images to FTP Servers - Still images and movies can be automatically uploaded and saved to an FTP server as they are captured, enabling transfer of a high volume of high-resolution image data captured by a digital-SLR camera. This allows for verification of images from a remote location by those not in the immediate vicinity of the camera.
  • Control Camera via PC - Operate the D4 via Camera Control Pro 2. From one master camera, simultaneously release up to ten remote D4/WT-5A combinations. Camera Control Pro 2 software (sold separately) allows users to specify and adjust shooting settings such as exposure mode, shutter speed, aperture, and white balance, and also to use live view photography and even record movies remotely. In addition, still images and movies can be saved directly to the computer as they are recorded with remote shooting using Camera Control Pro 2.
  • Control Camera via iPhone or iPad with HTTP Mode - Now you can use the web browser on your iPhone or iPad to operate camera controls or begin Live View shooting, including starting and stopping HD video and more.
  • Image Transmission Mode - Transmit images to an FTP server or computer two times faster than the previous Nikon WT-4A model.
  • Increase Field & Studio Efficiency - When another accessory is mounted on the accessory shoe, such as a speedlight, the camera and UT-1 can be mounted on a tripod using the optional SK-7 bracket (sold separately) for smooth handling.
