    Nikon D4 and WT-5 set-up


    I have been trying to set-up my Nikon D4 and WT-5 to send files wirelessly to my PC. The WT-5 works as HTTP server but I can not figure out how to get my laptop to see it as a wireless connection on either Wins or iOS laptops.
    I could use some help with set-up? If anyone is in the Las Vegas area, give me a text or call.

    I have a D4 and a WT-5, and I have never had very good luck getting the camera to connect/transfer to the PC or my Mac. It works well to connect and transfer to my iPad's, but not to the actual computers where I do the majority of my editing. I have tried a couple of different methods of connecting. Using the WT-5 as an AP doesn't work very well. Using an existing WiFi network is okay, but even with full signal strength, it is unstable. I got one of these that I keep in my bag, and it works really well for this. Again, it works well on the iPads, but not so well on laptops. There may be something that I am missing with setting these up, but I haven't had very much success with connecting to computers. I will also say that transfers to the Ipad do work, but they are not fast. For the most part, I stopped using the WT-5 as I am not publishing and have no deadline to publish, so I don't actually need to wirelessly transfer my shots. I keep a cable in my bag, and depending on where I am at, I may or may not have a Macbook Air that I can edit on.

    That probably does not help you at all.
    "Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all.Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it's yours." - John Galt
