This dongle works great, but it is a dongle. Wish this was built into my d610, but works fine with my iphone 4, ipad 2nd gen. and ipad air (w/ the Nikon app.) The small case, and leash helps keep it nearby and convenient. Nikon needs to work more on the app than on any hardware upgrade. Plus cost is very reasonable IMHO. January 11, 2014
Wireless Live View on my 10" Screen! Sure, there's a bit of a delay, but the fact that I can remote view and shoot my DSLR from 15 feet away is amazing! Others may have reported wireless issues, but I haven't had any. June 3, 2013
Does the job I agree, this product does work as indicated by the manufacturer. Yes, the functionality is somewhat limited, but it connects easily, stays connected (to an iphone 4) which allows me to focus and fire the camera remotely I shoot raw + jpeg normal, on a D600 and only download the jpegs to the phone. The download speed is fine. This allows me to send off samples quickly and remotely control the camera if necessary (though I prefer to do that via the remote release in most instances). January 30, 2013
Nice for what it is 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. January 15, 2013
Great for pole photography I use an iPod attached to the lower section of a 6 meter pole, the D600+W1-b with 16-35 VR on top of the pole, I get perfect connection everytime and shoot elevated photos of property exteriors for estate agents this way. It has worked flawlessly and suits the job perfectly. All I need is remote live view (which is by the way absolutly possible in landscape mode!) and ability to tap to focus anywhere I want. I use fixed aperture of 8 or 11 and no need to change any camera settings for this application. I would use other means like tethering ti LR for studio shoots not this product. You'd want to be able to change camera settings, Canon's new app with 6D does that. On the other hand, the same procedure using a W1-a on a D3200 was way to unstable and unreliable, no way to tap-focus on any other point except the image-center. Highly recommend this for pole photography for real-estate exterior elevated shoots. November 22, 2012

Answer: 
The app is hard to find. It is called the Wireless Mobile Adaptor Utility and you can find it by typing Nikon wireless in the app store search window. Nikon should post a link to it on their website like other vendors do.

Answer: 
The app has not been delayed. I have a D600 and the WU-1b hardware. I followed the information contained in another answer to this question on this site to download the app on my iPad 3 from the App Store. The app downloaded just fine from the list of apps for the iPhone as it was not on the list for the iPad.

The D600 communicates very nicely with the app on my iPad 3. I took 6 or so shots for practice and was pleased with my access to the photos on my i Pad 3. Everything worked as advertised. As long as you continued to work on the app with either the photos you have already taken or you are actively taking additional photos connectivity is good between the camera and the iPad 3. If you let it sit idle for a few minutes the iPad 3 would break connectivity with the D600 and reconnect to my home WiFi. It was easy to reestablish connectivity between the D600 and the iPad 3 app. Connectivity would stay established with the D600 until the next lapse of activity. It would then reestablish connectivity with the home WiFi. I wish it would not do that, but would wait to break connectivity with the D600 until I told it to do so.

Before getting my D600 I was shooting a D7000. The quality of the photos from the D600 are wonderful. I have never shot any camera that performs as well as the D600. Feels good in the hand, and the controls and menus work very similar to my older D7000 so I was up and running in a matter of a couple of hours after taking my D600 out of the box. Easy to use and performance is super. I have about 600 shots on my D600 now and have not had any trouble with dust or oil spots on the sensor.

Answer: 
With an iPad, go to the App store, search for Nikon, and then select the 'iPhone Apps' tab. You *won't* find it on the 'iPad Apps' tab. What you see among all the other Nikon-related apps, is labeled "Wireless Mobile Ad..." Make sure 'All Categories' is selected at the top of the search results. Way too hard to find.

Answer: 
It has been released but it is very hard to find for some reason. I searched for "Nikon" on my iPhone and then scrolled down all the apps until I saw it (Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility). I downloaded it to my iPhone, then backed up my iphone to my mac, and then loaded it also to my iPad (3). Its runs on IOS6 but I don't have the WU-1b device yet (pre-ordered) so I don't know if it is functional. I will post again as soon as I get the WU-1b. p.s. I think the D600 is great!

Answer: 
Press and hold down the button on the WU-1B wireless adapter for over 10 seconds. While holding down the button, the light on the Adapter should blink RED and then start flashing ORANGE. Once you see the flashing orange light, remove your finger from the button and immediately press it once more. The orange light will turn green, and the password will be removed.

I'm in the same boat. I've tried plugging in the device exactly as the instructions suggest. No LED light turns on. I even brought the device to Best Buy and tried it on 5 other Nikon cameras including other Nikon 1 Cameras since i have an AW1. It never turned on.

This is my second WU-1B. Nikon wants me to send BOTH camera and wifi device in. That means I'm without a camera for a month! This thing isn't even 30 days old yet. o_o

Answer: 
You didn't list the steps you did.
Insert the WU-1b into the camera, turn the camera on, go into your smart devices wi-fi settings and select WPS, hold the WPS button down until it turns red. Launch the Wireless mobile adapter utility. If you still have connection problems call Nikon service and support. In the US it is 800-NIKON_US or log onto Nikon.com and find the service and support number for your country.

I am delighted to report that I got an app update today that adds a self-timer which is effectively the
two second delay I was looking for. The device seemed to work better overall.
I would like to hear a little click when I touch the screen for the two second delay exposure. But otherwise,
It's doing what I thought it should.

Answer: 
Well, I tried it. Put mode dial on timer, 5 seconds. Remotely hit release, but it released instantly, even with timer mode set. Shame, would have been handy. But you know, you could join your group, hold your smart phone out of sight with finger poised over the virtual button, and release when ready. Only loss would be your one hand.
