Key Features

The WR-1 Wireless Remote Controller is part of the Nikon Wireless Remote Control system, which uses radio frequencies to communicate instead of infrared signal which requires direct line of sight, extending the capabilities and reach possible when photographers need the ability to control cameras remotely. The WR-1 Wireless Remote Controller can act as either a transmitter or receiver unit; and is compatible with the WR-T10 transmitters and WR-R10 transceivers. The WR-1 is compatible with the WR-T10 & R10 as long as the WR-1 is set to Group A, as the WR-R10/WR-T10 system is fixed on Group A.
Up to 20 WR-1 units can be used at one time (including 3 transmitters).
The WR-1 also can access up to four groups (A, B, C, D), to further separate out groups of cameras that need to be controlled independently and simultaneously.
Useful for triggering the shutter remotely when using slower shutter speeds (up to 60 minutes) for long exposure photography, to prevent camera movement as well as when shooting interval timer photography.
Range (line of sight) from a WR-1 to another WR-1 is approx. 394 ft.
When connected to a camera as a transceiver, the WR-1 must be connected to the D-SLR using either an MC-37 or MC-38 cable.
When connected to a D7100 D-SLR, the photographer can view and change camera settings remotely on the camera using the LCD information display on the WR-1.
Photographers can use the WR-1 to simultaneously release the shutter on multiple Nikon D-SLR cameras that have a WR-R10 and/or WR-1 units attached and have been paired with it. Likewise, the WR-1 can be used as a transceiver, to be controlled by a WR-T10 that is paired with it. The WR-1 is compatible with the WR-T10 & R10 as long as the WR-1 is set to Group A as the WR-R10/WR-T10 system is fixed on Group A.
The WR-1 has access to 15 radio frequency channels (1-15), to prevent interference when multiple pairings or photographers are shooting in one location. Using the WR-1 display, you can even visualize the traffic in each of the 15 channels and select the one with the least amount of traffic to minimize interference.
The WR-1 can be designated as a “master” and control the shutters of up to 20 WR-1 units, or 64 WR-R10 units. The WR-1 is compatible with the WR-T10 & R10 as long as the WR-1 is set to Group A as the WR-R10/WR-T10 system is fixed on Group A.
When using the release delay mode on the WR-1 transceiver, different delays can be used for different receivers, allowing the shutter release to be staggered over a series of cameras using a single transmitter.
When using a WR-1 as a transmitter and another as a transceiver, a third WR-1 unit can be used as a relay unit to effectively double the distance (line of sight) to the same 394 ft between units.
When connected to a D4, D800/D800E, D600, D5200 or D7100 D-SLR, the Fn button on the WR-1 has full control of the features that the camera’s Fn button controls.
Comes with a soft case, MC-37 Connecting Cord (for ten-pin remote terminals) and MC-38 Connecting Cord (for accessory terminals).

Ideally, the shutter sync would be precise within 1 millisecond, for 3D photos.

Answer: 
The WR-1 can be used to simultaneously release the shutter on multiple Nikon D-SLR cameras that have a WR-R10 and/or WR-1 units attached to each DSLR.

This can also be achieved by attaching multiple WR-R10 units to multiple DSLRs and triggering them with either a press of the shutter release on one of the cameras or with the WR-T10 remote transmitter. Please note that when the WR-R10 is to be used on a DSLR that has a 10-pin port the WR-A10 adapter is required.

Synchronized release can be achieved when cameras with 10-pin ports are used. The exact timing on synchronous release is not among the published specifications for these products.

Answer: 
connects to the 10 pin port with the included MC-37 cable. You will need two, one as a receiver and one as a transmitter or you can use the WR-R10/ WR-T10 combo.

Follow up question to: Is the WR-1 Wireless Remote Controller compatible with the D700?

May 26, 2013 by

0out of 0found this question helpful.
Was this helpful?helpful0unhelpful0
Thanks for the previous answer about compatibility with the D700! My follow up inquiry: I really don't like to buy and return items, so in the interest of saving time (mine and the retailer's) and money/shipping expense,
1) is the WR-1 capable of adjusting shutter settings? 2) if so, are two WR-1's required to do this?

What I am trying to accomplish is manual bracketing; and obviously touching the camera at any time between shots is just bad news. For my particular photography, 1.0 isn't enough. I like to bracket the shots 1.7 between shots. I am hoping that the combination of either two WR-1's (one as a receiver and one as a transmitter) can do this, or that one handheld WR-1 could transmit my requested setting through a WR-R10/WR-A10 setup that would be connected to the 10-Pin connector.

I hope my inquiry is clear enough to get a complete answer. Again, thanks for the compatibility response! I look forward to your response to this more complicated inquiry! Thank you!
