At rock bottom price on CamelCamel, £30.01 (not Amazon trader which is £29.99, click on price options) Not a perfect product with its iOS and Android Apps but this is HOTDEAL. App is used to used in combination with the WU-1a to download pictures from the camera and to release the camera shutter remotely. (Note the Nikon ML-L3 Remote Control is £20 anyway though OEM shutter release is a few £.) I bought this for a D3200 and a technical review and how to use is here:-
engadget.com/201…id/

Compatitibility is:-
D-SLR : Df, D7100, D5200, D3300, D3200 (note NOT D3100)
Nikon 1 : S2
COOLPIX : A, P7800, P530, P520, P330,

High-quality photos and movies can be sent directly from the camera to a smart device, making them easy to share via social media networks, email or sharing and storage sites.

The adapter also enables the user to control the camera remotely, making it perfect for self-portraits and groups shots, or for previewing images on a larger tablet screen before shooting. Powered by the camera and includes built-in Wi-Fi connectivity.

I just used an iPAD 3 , 8MB JPEG transferred in about 5 seconds between pressing shutter release and when downloaded to iPAD ready for viewing (there was a progress bar to indicate this transfer). I have not tried with RAW. With the Nikon App, Liveview appears on your tablet (Liveview on camera itself does not work then.) I just tried this WU-1a on a few 500mm manual shots using my iPAD through the Nikon App and manually focussed my shots using Liveview on my iPAD.
Was looking at one of these for my 3200. so temping...

I bought this for my wife's 3200... and returned it because it's terrible. We tried it with a Moto G phone and to describe it as flaky would be an understatement - could have saved quite a bit of time and effort if I'd heeded all the bad reviews.

Like what, an iPhone (yawn)? Whilst I concede the Moto G isn't exactly a Cray Supercomputer, it's a perfectly good android device that this Nikon piece of rubbish will simply not work with for more than a minute at a time. As I also mentioned, all the reviews of the Wu-1a I have read are pretty negative. Are you saying it's not poo if it's used with a better/more expensive device? Please share your experience with us all.

I have a vanilla IPad iOS 7 that's not tinkered with as indeed a Samsung Note 2 vanilla, no problem at all. Some people's problems could be caused by not using stock firmware, so worthwhile to keep a vanilla device for problem determination. Another age old tip in IT or any management, do not get upgrade to the latest update until it is fully tested on a test system or wait for others to do this testing.
Just avoid this piece of trash, I bought it for my D610 and it is just useless for file transfers it just looses connection time after time on Iphone 4gs / Sony Xperia Z1 / Sony Xperia Z5 the same issues. Managed to resolve on Xperia however only if I shoot in JPEG, why on earth would I want to shoot in JPEG over RAW format just for the sake on transferring to a mobile device.

The only positive is that you can use it as a remove capture device but you have no control over changing settings on the camera, the only advantage is that you can see what is through the viewfinder.

If the app was better this could be a good product, but it is shocking so please avoid this as it will give you nothing but problems

I think this WU-1a was positioned for causal download of snapshots for posting immediately to social networks. So targetted for convenience for social network and remote shutter release. It never claimed on its product description to be a commander controller for the camera for controlling the camera remotely.
Sadly, this is now £44 from Amazon.
No deal anymore and the lowest price is £40.
