Nikon WU-1a Lets You Use Your Android Phone as a DSLR Remote 0

There’s no shortage of apps or attachments when it comes to transforming an iPhone into a remote for your DSLR shooter. First, there was the iPhone Shutter Remote, followed by the ioShutter Remote Trigger (which TogTech will be reviewing soon, by the way.)

But there’s no need to worry if you have an Android device, as there’s a compatible remote for that as well in the form of TriggerHappy. You might have noticed, however, that none of these remotes were officially made or released by the camera manufacturers themselves. So if you’re particular about that sort of thing, you’ll be happy to hear about Nikon’s WU-1a, an adapter that transforms your Android phone into a (surprise, surprise) remote for your Nikon D3200.

The WU-1a, however, is a wireless adapter that does more than just let you transfer photos from camera to computer. It also lets you use your Android smartphone as a live view for your D3200.

Nikon D3200 users will be able to take advantage of the new WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter. When connected to the camera, this optional adapter can wirelessly send images to mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, preview an image before shooting and control the camera remotely.
