My Nikon D800e doesn’t have Wi-Fi, but I want to send images to my laptop. What’s the best way of doing this?
Jason says... Eye-Fi cards are like SDHC memory cards, but with Wi-Fi connectivity. They should work with your D800e but, given the large file sizes of its images, transmission speeds would be painfully slow. Nikon offers a UT-1 and WT-5 kit that adds fast Wi-Fi connectivity to the camera, but it’s expensive at around £1000/$1000.
If you can shoot close to your laptop and don’t need wireless connectivity, take advantage of the D800e’s fast USB 3 port, which you can connect to your laptop via the three-metre UC-E14 cable supplied with the camera. Various programs are available that support tethered shooting, such as Phase One Capture One Pro.
