Note: Smart device is used to remotely fire the camera, maximum distance is up to 49 feet and the smart device can’t be used to adjust settings on the camera.
The dedicated application runs on Android™ 2.3 or later (smartphones); on Android 3.0 or later (tablets). iPhone® and iPad®: iOS version 6.0 or later. Operating system is required to use the WU-1b.**

Note: Images will be downloaded after they are saved to the camera's memory card.

Easy Sharing: Single images or groups of images can be shared using apps stored on the smart device via email, text messaging or by uploading to a blog or social networking site—just like any other image on your smartphone or tablet.

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

I have a Nikon D610 that I am using the WU-1b with. I have downloaded the app to my Samsung S4 phone. It seems to go through the pairing process OK, as I can see the Nikon as a network option on the phone. When I choose the Nikon as a wireless network choice, the phone drops the connection because the signal is too weak.

I downloaded the app to an I phone and the device works fine.

Answer: 
Connect the WU-1b any of the compatible cameras. Once it is connected, the WU-1b will illuminate and then change the Wi-Fi settings of the camera to the WU-1b adaptor. Once there is a connection, images can be transferred wirelessly to any android/iOS smart device. Make sure the the WMU app is installed onto the smart device.

When viewing an image, there is a download tab that can be clicked on to then allow the a single shot to be downloaded. All images will load onto the WMU and you will be able to select the jpeg image. The NEF RAW images will say "NEF" in the corner where the jpegs will not.
