I’m all for going wireless and it seems the trend is hitting up just about everything these days, including digital cameras. No longer do you need to fumble with messy cables when it comes time to upload or print your photos. The Nikon WT-3 Wireless Transmitter for cameras takes “wireless” to a whole new level, adding in some rather spiffy functionality.
The device has just finished going through the FCC wringer, emerging out the other end with the all-important stamp of approval. There are four modes in all: transfer mode, allowing you to wirelessly upload your pictures to a host computer or FTP; print mode – computer, allowing you to print photos on a network-connected printer, print mode – adapter, taking advantage of PictBridge via the PD-10 wireless printer adapter; and most interestingly, PC mode, which allows you to remotely control your camera from a computer.
Compatible with 802.11b/g WiFi and 100BaseTx/10BaseT wired networks, the Nikon WT-3 Wireless Transmitter works with the company’s D200 digital SLR. No mention of support for other cameras, though I suspect it’s got to work with something else.
