As reported previoudly, Nikon’s newest DSLR—the D3200—which has been announced just yesterday, features a Wi-Fi connectivity provided by the WU-1a wireless adapter. In fact, the mini adapter offers more than just a connectivity to transfer photos directly from the DSLR to a computer or smartphone.
Nikon’s WU-1a adapter, unlike most wireless adapters, also allows Nikon users to connect the DSLR to an Android-operated phone and remotely control the camera from the phone. This means that the Android phone may also function as a live view mode and a remote shutter release control for the camera.
As for the present time, the WU-1a adapter is only compatible with Android phones. However, there’s no need to worry as Nikon has informed that the iOS support will come later this year, allowing users to control their D3200 from their iOS devices.
Also, the WU-1a can now work only with the Nikon D3200, but there is a possibility that Nikon will release firmware updates to expand the adapter’s compatibility with more Nikon cameras.
