Awesome adapter

Craig from Coldwater, MI on 12/12/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Contrary to many other reviews on different sites, this device works quite well. I shot a wrestling event that lasted 2 hours plus to an Ipod. 421 images and never had a problem. I use Shuttersnitch and find it for me to be a better app than the Nikon freebie. Occasionally it will loose conection but for the price, what do you expect.

Pros: Works well with OnOne Software remote for the Ipad. Camera must be tethered to a laptop to work but OnOne can change camera settings

Cons: Doesn't transfer fast. Nikon App is limited but free
