Nikon wireless tethering setup



  • Mattia Ozbot

    I have a problem, when I connect Z9 on the machine it tells me to connect with wireless transmitter. If I pair Z9 and Captoureone I get this error message.

    I had same problem.
    I changed Langage setting Japanese to English, but it was same error.

    Z9 firmware 2.11
    MacBook Pro M1 Max 14'
    macOS Monterey 12.6
    Capture One 22 Pro

    Double check the user manual for the Z9 and ensure the camera is setup correctly. If you've done that already, contact support as it could be a bug.

    ok got this wireless setup going with Z9  however I have my camera set to 5g wifi but for some reason the camera connection says its 2.4g is there a way to get it to use the 5g connection maybe itll work faster?

    Hi Jack

    I have tried various ways to solve the problem of Z9 not connecting with Wireless, and I will share them with you.

    The problem was the Nikon Wireless Transmitter Utility.
    In my case, I had paired with Nikon Wireless Transmitter Utility before connecting wirelessly to Capture one, and this seemed to be the cause.
    I turned off pairing in the Nikon Wireless Transmitter Utility, and
    When creating a new network from the Z9, pairing with Capture one instead of Nikon Wireless Transmitter Utility worked.

    I have tried wireless tethering for high efficiency RAW with the new update and it works well too.

    So its not bug, I think

    "The important thing to remember is to replace any mention of 'Wireless transfer utility (WTU)' with 'Capture One' - they both achieve the same thing, as Capture One acts as a proxy for WTU."

    I will update this so that it is clearer that WTU cannot be used or open when trying to connect to Capture One. Sorry for the confusion.

    seth miranda I can't help directly with this one as it is camera specific, and I don't currently have access to this camera model. If you have trouble solving this using Nikon's resources (user guide, manual, help center etc.) then let us know if you think it is something Capture One specific that is preventing the 5 Ghz connection. For what it's worth, I've found 2.4 Ghz to be a bit more stable, but that's perhaps due to the range I've been using and the amount of other devices connected to the 5 Ghz band.
