WT-3 experience with Macs
Oct 31, 2006

Just got hold of a WT-3 for my D200. A few points of feedback; firstly Nikon reps reckoned on 10% battery drop from going WiFi - I reckon 50% is my experience, Secondly the FTP upload speeds are like treacle - I've only tried uploading to a remote FTP site as I may as well use a USB 2.0 connector if the Mac is nearby, Thirdly the set up for apple airport express is not a good experience - I was forced to drop my whole apartment wireless mesh and rebuild with lower sercurity levels to get the thing to work (and boy was that a pain).

So in conclusion - I'm looking forward to a firmware update to get the transfer speeds up.

The thought of trying to get my T-mobile hotzone going is even more scary.

Perhaps I'll put together a techie guide to connecting - certainly makes Apple seem trivial.
