It's available liao. Went to get it last Saturday because I wanted to use it for King of the Road and Flugtag on Sunday. I walked around Funan but the shops either don't have it yet, or just sold out by the time I reach the shop. TK as of Saturday no stock. So I went to the opposite Peninsula and heng Cathay Photo got stock.
The price is $89 and it's damn worth it because I took some pictures with the D600 and instantly upload them to friends on FB and whatsapp and they wondered how the hell am I able to take those pictures with my phone, and when I explained it's actually from the D600, they went how the hell did I get those pictures onto my phone.
Being able to share those pictures on the spot is priceless.
The unit runs quite warm when it's active, and the Sunday sun didn't help.
1) What is the transfer speed like?
2) Does it interfere with normal shooting in any way? I have heard that you are forced to use the cam in live view mode when the wireless adaptor is attached.
3) Does it cause significant battery drain?
Here's one picture out of my phone. The jpeg also has EXIF info on it.
Well I shoot in raw, and I didn't really count, but it took maybe around 10 seconds for it to finish transferring one pic.
I didn't try shooting with the unit in it. Plugged it in only when I want to transfer pics, plugged out straight after I'm done.
Didn't observe a hit in the battery, since I only plug in the unit to transfer not more than 20 pics throughout the whole day.
There is no need to connect to an external wifi. You can use it anywhere. Once you connect the adapter to the D600 and on it, the adapter will broadcast it's own SSID, and the phone just need to connect to the SSID. So you can use it anywhere, even on an island with coconut trees only without any civilisation.
Can it be used to backup every jpeg and raw file toa laptop? Without needing to manually select and transfer on the camera itself? I.e. if I fire 50 shots at a go, 50 shots get stored in cam memory card, and 50 gets wirelessly transfereed to my laptop hdd?
