Pairing the card to a mobile device

Let's take a look at a specific Wi-Fi card. In this case, I'm going to use the MiFi card, the mobile edition. Make sure that the tab is in the unlocked position, so push I'll that up so that you can actually write to the card. And then you need to put it into the camera and make sure of course that the camera powers on. So I'll start with camera off. Drop the card in. Close that out, power the camera on and take a shot. Now, I want to make sure that the camera stays on, so I'll take a couple of shots just so that card gets fully charged and triggered.

At this point, I should be able to see it with my wireless device. So I'm going to connect my iPad to it and I'll walk you through those steps. Now, each one's going to vary slightly by manufacture and version. But, the overall approach to pairing is pretty simple. Now the first time you do, you might need to actually connect. You'll add the mobile card and then take the code off the back of the card itself. Then tap Go to continue. You're going to be prompted to install a profile. At this point, tap Install, Install Now and you'll need to enter your pass code.

Once it's installed, the profile is added. You're going to want to check your Wi-Fi settings and make sure you actually connect to the card. Once you've done that, the profile will authorize the network. And it is a limited network. So only the devices that have had their codes activated can connect. You can now launch the application. You could tap the button to make sure that it's connected. And you'll see the images begin to download. You have a certain level of zoomability here, as well as the ability to step through images you've recently shot. Remember, these are only JPEG files.

So your camera will need to be set to shoot RAW plus JPEG, in order to transfer the connected image. Let's go ahead and fire off another shot. And the files are transferred over the Wi-Fi network. One of the major benefits here is the ability to tap share and take advantage of the ability to go ahead and send that, for example with an email in order for the client to review. And you see there that this is going to make it really easy to get the images out there quickly for feedback or to let people see. And you get the general idea there on how the wireless card works. Now, this is very much a consumer-oriented solution.

You notice that the transfer speeds there are not nearly as fast as a hardline tether but, maybe you're an event photographer and you're shooting a wedding or an activity and this is going to allow somebody that you're partnering with to be instantly uploading images from the event. And for some workflows, this is going to be ideal. Now, manufacturers also have their own Wi-Fi adapters. Many cameras are coming with Wi-Fi built in or it's an optional adapter. Let's take a look at Nikon's.
