Nikon WU-1a and WU-1b Wireless Adapters
From Nikon:
 
The WU-1a and WU-1b are USB wireless adapters that can establish a two way wireless connection between specific cameras and iOS and Android smart devices and tablets. The USB connections on the WU-1a and WU-1b are different so it is important that the correct adapter is used for the specific camera.
 
The table below confirms which cameras are compatible with each adapter.

 WU-1aWU-1b
D-SLRD5300, D3200D600
Nikon 1 J3, S1, V2
COOLPIXP520 

The Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility (“app”) is used in combination with the WU-1a and WU-1b to download pictures from the camera and to release the camera shutter remotely. Click here for further information regarding operating system and mobile device compatibility.

Welcome to the Adobe® Photoshop® Camera Raw 7.4 plug-in release candidate on Adobe Labs.

The Camera Raw 7.4 update includes support for many new cameras and lens profiles.
 
The Camera Raw plug-in provides easy access within Adobe Photoshop CS6 to the raw image formats produced by many leading professional and midrange digital cameras. For more information on the Camera Raw plug-in please visit the Camera Raw pages on Adobe.com.
 
The Camera Raw team would like the community to help verify the quality of the plug-in through normal usage as this will ensure that the plug-in is tested on a diversity of hardware and software configurations not available internally at Adobe. If you do experience an issue with this release candidate please report it within the Camera Raw discussion forum.
