Nikon has announced the new UT-1 unit to enhance the ease of remote control and image transfers especially for professional on-site and studio photographers.
Compatible with the Nikon D4, D800, D800E, and D7000 DSLR cameras, still images can be automatically transferred as they are captured via an Ethernet wired connection. Still images and movies already stored on a memory card can be transferred and saved to a computer or an FTP server. Additionally, when the Wireless Transmitter WT-5 is connected to the UT-1, users can transfer images easily via a wireless network. Adding the WT-5 also enables advanced features such as HTTP Server, allowing the Nikon D800/800E cameras to be controlled from a smartphone or tablet without any added software via their in-built web browser.
The pricing and availability of the Nikon UT-1 accessory will be confirmed at a later date.
