Edit the following wireless settings:




Enter the name (SSID) of the network on which the host computer or ftp server is located. This is a required field.

[Communication mode]

Choose an option according to the type of network.

  • [Infrastructure]: Connect via a wireless LAN access point.

  • [Access point]: Connect directly to a computer or ftp server using the camera as a wireless network access point.


Choose a channel ([Access point] mode only). If [Infrastructure] is selected, the channel will be chosen automatically.


Choose from [OPEN] (open system), [Shared] (shared key), [WPA-PSK], and [WPA2-PSK]. [Shared] and [WPA-PSK] are available only when [Infrastructure] is selected for [Communication mode].


Choose the type of encryption used on the network. If the network uses encryption, enter an encryption key; the number and type of characters in the key vary with the type of encryption selected.

  • [No encryption]: An encryption key is not required.

  • [WEP: 64-bit, base 16]/[WEP: 128-bit, base 16]: Enter a key of 10 (64-bit) or 26 (128-bit) hexadecimal digits. Press 4 or 2 to highlight digits and press 1 or 3 to change.

  • [WEP: 64-bit, ASCII]/[WEP: 128-bit, ASCII]: Enter a key of 5 (64-bit) or 13 (128-bit) alphanumeric characters.

  • [TKIP]/[AES]: Enter a key of 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters (ASCII). Hexadecimal keys must be 64 hexadecimal digits long.

[Key index]

If [Infrastructure] is selected for [Communication mode] and [WEP: 64-bit, base 16], [WEP: 64-bit, ASCII], [WEP: 128-bit, base 16], or [WEP: 128-bit, ASCII] is selected for [Encryption], choose a key index matching that used by the access point or host computer.


The choices available for [Encryption] depend on the option chosen for [Authentication]:




[No encryption], [WEP: 64-bit, base 16], [WEP: 64-bit, ASCII], [WEP: 128-bit, base 16], [WEP: 128-bit, ASCII]

  • The only option available when [Access point] is selected for [Communication mode] is [No encryption].


[WEP: 64-bit, base 16], [WEP: 64-bit, ASCII], [WEP: 128-bit, base 16], [WEP: 128-bit, ASCII]






Enter TCP/IP information.



[Obtain automatically]

Choose whether the camera obtains the IP address and sub-net mask automatically or via manual entry. A TCP/IP address is required in either case.

  • Select [Enable] to use an IP address and sub-net mask supplied by a DHCP server or automatic private IP addressing.

  • Select [Disable] to enter the IP address ([Address]) and sub-net mask ([Mask]) manually.


If the network requires a gateway address, enter the address supplied by the network administrator.

  • Movies and photos taken during filming are not uploaded automatically when recording is complete. They must instead be uploaded from the playback display.

Delete After Send

Select [Yes] to delete photographs from the camera memory card automatically once upload is complete.

  • Sequential file numbering is used when [Yes] is selected, regardless of the item selected for Custom Setting d9 [File number sequence].

  • Files marked for transfer before you selected [Yes] are not deleted.

  • Deletion may be suspended during some camera operations.

Send File As

When uploading NEF + JPEG images, choose whether to upload both the NEF (RAW) and JPEG files or only the JPEG copy.

  • When [RAW Slot 1 - JPEG Slot 2] is selected for [Role played by card in Slot 2] in the photo shooting menu, the option chosen for [Send file as] applies only to photos uploaded automatically by selecting [On] for [Auto send].

JPEG + JPEG Slot Selection

Choose a source slot for auto upload when taking pictures with [JPEG Slot 1 - JPEG Slot 2] selected for [Role played by card in Slot 2] in the photo shooting menu.

Overwrite If Same Name

Choose [Yes] to overwrite files with duplicate names during upload. Choose [No] to add numbers to the names of newly uploaded files as necessary to prevent existing files being overwritten.

Protect If Marked to Send

Select [Yes] to automatically protect files marked for upload. Protection is removed as the files are uploaded.

Send Marking

Select [On] to add a timestamp to the pictures on the camera memory card giving the time of upload.

The timestamp can be viewed using NX Studio. For more information, see NX Studio’s online help.

Send Folder

Select folders for upload. All photos in the selected folders (including those already marked as “sent”) will be marked for upload.

Movies cannot be uploaded using this option. They must instead be uploaded from the playback display.

HTTP User Settings

Enter a user name and password for connection to an http server (http server connections only).

Power Saving

Choose whether the camera prioritizes network speed or reduced power consumption.

  • [Prioritize network speed] ensures that LAN connections remain active even when data are not being exchanged with the server. Ethernet connections can use the high-speed 1000BASE-T standard.

  • [Prioritize power saving] limits Ethernet connections to 100BASE-TX. LAN connections are terminated automatically when data transfer ends. The camera network indicator will turn off.

MAC Address

When [Enable] is selected for [Wired LAN/WT functions], this option can be used to view the MAC address of the hardware selected for [Choose hardware].
