Overview: The Nikon WR-A10 Wireless Remote Adapter is designed to work with the WR-R10 Wireless Remote Controller (transceiver), allowing it to be connected to select Nikon DSLRs with a 10-pin connector. The WR-A10 adapter has a receptacle for the WR-R10 transceiver, and a male 10-pin plug (with a threaded ring) for attaching the adapter to the camera. When connected, the WR-R10 can wirelessly control the shutter release on other Nikon cameras, or a radio-controlled Nikon Speedlight flash unit. You can pair a single WR-T10 transmitter (sold separately) with a up to 64 cameras with WR-R10 transceivers to simultaneously release the shutter on multiple cameras. Using a WR-A10 WR adapter, you can connect multiple WR-R10s together, and designate one as a master to control the shutter release of the other transceiver units.
Selectable Frequencies: The WR-T10 (transmitter), WR-R10 (transceiver), and WR-A10 adapter all use radio frequencies to communicate with each other. Three radio frequency channels are available to prevent interference when multiple pairings or photographers are shooting in the same location. A slide switch on the side of the WR-R10 transceiver unit lets you choose which channel to use.
Range: The operating distance between a WR-T10 transmitter and a WR-R10 transceiver is 66 feet (20 meters). If you are using a WR-R10 with a WR-A10 adapter on a DSLR (acting as a master unit), the range to another WR-R10 is 164 feet (50 meters). Optimum transmission from one unit to another requires line-of-sight operation. Communication distance between a WR-R10 on the camera and an SB-5000 Speedlight is approximately 98 feet (30 meters).
Compatibility: The WR-A10 can be used with Nikon DSLR and film cameras equipped with the proprietary 10-pin remote terminals. It can also be used with Nikon radio-controlled flash units, such as the SB-5000 Speedlight. Compatible DSLRs (as of February 2016) include: D2Hs, D2Xs, D200, D3, D3S, D3X, D300, D300S, D4, D4S, D5, D500, D700, D800, D810, and D810A.
