Key Features

The UT-1 Communications Unit, when connected to the D800/D800E or D7000 D-SLRs allows the camera to connect via Ethernet to a computer or ftp server for downloading of images; in addition to controlling the camera remotely using Nikon’s Camera Control Pro 2 software.

The UT-1 can store up to nine host and server profiles.

The UT-1 attaches to the D-SLR via the accessory hot shoe, or the optional SK-7 bracket.

To use the UT-1 with a D7100, use the UC-E6 USB cable, which is provided with the camera, to connect the UT-1 with the D7100.

The UT-1 supports the following modes:

Transfer mode: transmit images and movies to a host (computer or ftp server) from the camera. In transfer mode, you have the option of turning on Auto Send, which automatically downloads images to the computer/ftp server immediately after they’re recorded to the camera’s memory card. The default setting is OFF; when used, you select images for downloading while in playback mode.

PC mode: Transfer images to a computer from the camera directly, instead of saving the images to the media card first, (however, movie files must be saved first to the media card, then downloaded to the computer), as well as control the camera from a computer using Nikon’s Camera Control Pro 2 software.

The UT-1 is powered by an EN-EL15 Li-ion rechargeable battery; It can also be powered by the optional EP-5B power connector and EH-5b or EH-5/EH-5a AC Adapter.

Specifications:

Standards: IEEE 802.3u (100 base-TX)/IEEE 802.3 (10 base-T)

Data rates: 10/100 Mbps with auto detect

Port: 100 base-TX/10 base-T (Auto-MDIX)

Answer: 
Not directly with Nikon, but as I said in my previous answer, with "ShutterSnitch" it works just fine.

Answer: 
I apologize, my previous answer was incorrect. You cannot currently operate the UT-1 with the WT-5 in HTTP mode on a D800. The D800/WT-5/UT-1 combo only works in transfer and PC mode so smart devices are not currently supported.

Answer: 
You need the app "ShutterSnitch" though since HTTP is not supported with the UT-1. It's available in the App Store and pretty expensive for an app.

Answer: 
The UT-1 together with the WT-5A lets you create a wireless (Wi-Fi) connection with the D800.
With the WT-5A in HTTP mode you can use the web browser on your iPhone® and/or iPad®** to operate camera controls or begin Live View shooting, including starting and stopping HD video and more.

Answer: 
It can be use wirelessly if you connect the WT-5 to it but you will need to purchase both the UT-1 and the WT-5, OR Just buy the WT-4 which offers both wireless and ethernet capability.

Answer: 
The UT-1 can be mounted on the camera accessory shoe or on a tripod via the tripod socket. To mount the UT-1 on the camera when a flash unit or other accessory is mounted on the accessory shoe, use an optional SK-7 bracket.

I have both a D800 and D4. I want to be able to control the D800 or D4 camera and view pictures on my iPhone\iPad.

First, is the only thing I need for the D800 is this UT-1?
I see the WT-5 connects to it, but why would you need it if you have the communicator?

Second, on the D4, doesn't the WT-5 already communicate with the iPhone? Why would you need the WT-5 communicator?

Answer: 
The UT-1 allows you to create a wired (Ethernet) connection with the D800.
The UT-1 together with the WT-5A lets you create a wireless (Wi-Fi) connection with the D800.

You do not need to use the UT-1 with the D4, as it has a built-in Ethernet port, just the WT-5A.

WT-5 + UT-1 on a D800 in HTTP mode/iOS

Was this helpful?helpful1unhelpful0
Catherine said in another answer this would be possible. I don't think so. How is this supposed to work without a menu to setup HTTP (IP, password etc.)? The D800 is not prepared for the WT-5 hence has no menu for it. Neither the UT-1 or the WT-5 have displays, so no possibility to set it up there either.
HTTP with the WT-5 via the UT-1 on a D800 is most likely not possible. If it's still possible, I would like to know how to set it up.

Thanks!

Answer: 
With the D800,WT-5 + UT-1, you can take pictures and wirelessly transfer them to a computer or FTP server, or wirelessly control the camera from a computer using optional Camera Control Pro 2 software.

The full setup instruction is in the UT-1 manual. PDF Link below.

The wireless transmitter utility for mac and windows which is needed for the setup can be downloaded from the link below.
