Just got the D600. Still debating whether to go with the D800 vs. D600 but I will be field testing the body over next 3-4 weeks so I can still trade up if needed. I sold off my D7000 as I really want to stay FX all the way. Biggest issue for me is DX factor. I do serious BIF/wildlife work & want all the reach I can get. Hoping the additional pixels will partially offset the lost 1.5X when I do serious cropping in post processing. But don't want to deal with the 36MP or the slower FPS of the D800 as well as higher cost unless necessary. Most of my images end up being projected or on screens of some sort so big prints are not my thing. Great IQ, low noise at high ISO & excellent AF (including the F/8 capability when using a 1.7X on my F/4 lenses) are what attracted me to the new body.
Also anyone try the WU-1b wireless mobile adapter on their D600? I know there has been one out for a while for the D3200. Reviews of that one were not all that great.
I bought the WU-1b about a week ago. I haven't used it extensively yet but it performed as advertised during my initial tests. I have the app on my iPhone and iPad and it works equally well on both. For the price I'd say it's worth having.
Earlier today, I was reading user reviews of it on Amazon. There are apparently some limitations. One reviewer said that CamRanger is a better solution. I went to their website and I guess for the price, $299, it should be lol
the unit basically allows you to either take a photo or view photos that are still in your camera via the utility (i.e., app) from your mobile device. When taking a photo it essentially enables live view on your device and allows you to press the shutter release remotely. However, if you choose the option to "download immediately" after taking a picture, be prepared to wait several seconds for the image to appear on the device. Also, when in "view picture" mode, it will take several seconds for all the images on your SD card to load but once they're loaded you can select those that you specifically want to save to your camera roll and work on it further from there by pulling it into any apps you have on your device. I think the key advantage is getting a larger view of your images (if you're using an ipad) than what you'd see from the LCD screen.
Just received my WU-1B and played around a little with it. I could see this little marvel being very useful. But what I can't get over is how tiny it is. Not so much the actual size but rather why on earth didn't Nikon build this right into the body?
Strip away the USB plug and the outer plastic case and the components inside must take up the space of a split pea. Why have a tiny extra device that is so easy to lose and a little awkward to store when it should be built right into a $2K camera?
Seems nice for what it is, Canon has theirs built in minus a built in flash..not sure which I would rather have.
It's a nice feature but nothing ground breaking as others already have incorporated these options in their cameras.
59 dollars? I also have read about SD wifi cards? Seem to do the same minus the live view app..
Me having my iPad mini is actually nice viewing or previewing photos directly on my iPad during a shoot to display or make minor corrections if need be. The iPad 3 with retina display may be even better?
