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.

Will the UT-1 and WT-5A allow me to control my D800 and view pictures using my Ipad (like I can on D4)?
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.
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?
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.
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.
I use a Nikon D800E & Imac -Can I use the UT-1 and WT5 ? How can I wirelessly upload the pictures as I take them? Will I need another gadget for Imac?
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.
