Designed for use with the D5 DSLR, the WT-6A Wireless Transmitter from Nikon enhances the camera's connectivity capabilities with the addition of 802.11ac and 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi.

It also has an exceptional range of up to 656' when line of sight is maintained and a speedy data transfer rate of 130 Mbps. It offers both an HTTP mode for browser-based access to the camera from either a computer or mobile device and an Access Point mode for direct connection to the camera itself. Along with this, users will be able edit image comments, copyright, or IPTC information for seamless transition to the editing stage. Additionally, with multiple cameras equipped with this transmitter, users can take control of up to 10 DSLRs at a single time for synchronised release.
