The Wireless Mobile Utility creates two-way wireless connections between Nikon cameras and smart devices. Pictures taken with the camera can be downloaded to the smart device, and the camera can be controlled remotely, with the smart device displaying the view through the camera lens. The photo sharing feature makes it easy to upload pictures to social networking sites or attach them to e-mail messages.
Using the Wireless Mobile Utility (the “app”), smart devices can connect to cameras equipped with built-in wireless or Nikon’s wireless mobile adapter accessory, with no need for a wireless LAN router or access point. The app can be used to download high-quality images from the camera memory card, share pictures using the Android “Share” Intent, and take pictures remotely while the view through the lens is displayed on the smart device.
‒Connections can easily be established with the smart device and cameras equipped with built-in wireless or a wireless mobile adapter.
‒The camera clock can be automatically synchronized with the smart device.
‒Pictures can be downloaded from the camera to smart device.
‒The smart device can be used to view and download the pictures on the camera memory card.
‒The Android “Share” Intent can be used to pass downloaded pictures to other apps for easy sharing.
‒The view through the lens can be previewed on, and the shutter released from, the smart device. This feature is not available with Nikon 1 or COOLPIX cameras.
‒A two-second self-timer is available.
‒The smart device can control optical zoom on COOLPIX cameras.
‒The app can only be used with cameras equipped with built-in wireless or a WU-1a/WU-1b wireless mobile adapter (S800c excluded).
‒Movies can not be recorded remotely.
‒The app can be used to download movies to the smart device but not to play them back. The app may not display pictures taken with other cameras.
‒When downloaded to the smart device, the photograph and movie portions of Motion Snapshots recorded with Nikon 1 cameras are treated as separate files.
‒We recommend installing a memory card in the smart device.
‒Ad hoc and Wi-Fi Direct wireless LAN modes are not supported.
‒The app may not function as expected when installed on smart devices that have not been tested and approved for use.
‒The display must have a resolution of at least 800 × 480 pixels (WVGA).
‒Depending on the device used and on network and ambient conditions, frame delay and lag may occur during live view.
‒In accord with wireless regulations, the wireless mobile adapter can be used only at a maximum range of approximately 10 m to 15 m (33 ft to 49 ft). Range may be affected by obstacles and signal conditions.
