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.

If your lap­top sup­ports USB 3, you can take ad­van­tage of the D800e’s su­per-fast trans­fer speeds
