Nikon WT-3 Wireless Transmitter Overview
Nikon's much-awaited accessory for its range of digital cameras, is now available. The WT-3 allows you to connect the camera to wireless and Ethernet networks. This allows you to remotely control the camera from a computer; you can also transfer photos from it to an FTP server or printer.
Powered by a single EN-EL3e battery and providing additional functionality, including a vertical shutter release button as well as front and rear command dials, the WT-3A delivers much more than outstanding wireless technology and performance.
Provides simple operation, setup and device registration, with support for up to nine device profiles with the supplied Setup Utility software.
IEEE802.11 b/g wireless LAN supports FTP and PTP-IP protocols with effective transfer rates up to 10 Mbps in the ad-hoc mode.
Built-in wired (LAN) 100BASE-T Ethernet capability with automatic cable detection offering an effective transmission rate of 15 Mbps.
The built-in antenna provides an operational range of up to 256 feet, or add the optional WA-E1 Extended Range Antenna for a transmission range up to 840 feet.
Network functions include Transfer, PC, and Print modes, remote operation via Nikon Capture and Capture Control Pro software, and wireless printing with the PD-10 Print Mode adapter.
TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) and AES encryption for the infrastructure mode provides increased security for file transmissions.
The following modes are supported by the WT-3 wireless transmitter:
Transfer mode: Computer or FTP server, allowing you to upload new or existing photos to the host
PC mode: Computer, allowing you to control the camera from a computer
Print mode: Computer, allowing you to print JPEG photos on a printer connected to the network
Print mode: PD-10 wireless printer adapter, allowing you to print JPEG photos on PictBridge printer connected to PD-10 wireless printer adapter
Benefits: Compatible with the Nikon D200 digital SLR, the WT-3 is compliant with IEEE 802.11b/g networks, as well as 100BaseTx/10BaseT wired networks.
Wireless Transmitter WT-3/WT-3A reveals that it will do more than just send photos over a Wi-Fi wireless link.
The accessory for the D200 incorporates all of the functionality of the Multi-Power Battery Pack MB-D200 (though it will accept only one EN-EL3e battery rather than two), it has a 10/100 Ethernet port for the transmission of photos over a wired network connection (in addition to 802.11b/g wireless networks), it allows the D200 to be controlled via a wireless or wired link and it will also make it possible to print direct from the camera to a networked printer.
In addition, the radio inside the WT-3/WT-3A appears to be more powerful than that of the current Wireless Transmitter WT-2/WT-2A, which may translate into greater range. The single EN-EL3e battery will power both the camera and the transmitter for a Nikon-specified 1600 JPEG Basic frames with the transmitter off, 1100 frames when the Ethernet port is used and 1000 frames when the wireless link is active.
