Helicon Remote with Nikon D5300 WiFi

Post by jdelisle » 29.04.2016 22:01

Has anyone had success connecting Helicon Remote to a Nikon D5300 via WiFi using Windows 10 or Android? If so, how?

1. Very important step: make sure no other camera-related software is running on the computer where you'll be using Helicon Remote. No official Nikon/Canon utility or anything else that could possibly communicate with the camera. It's best to uninstall Nikon WMU because it may be running in background.
2. Very important step: reset / clear all the Wi-Fi related settings in the camera body.
3. Setup the wi-fi connection in the camera, connect your device to the network hosted by the camera (or vice versa if you already have a network and want to connect the camera to it, e. g. in an office).
4. Tap Select a camera -> Add on iOS, or Tools -> Network cameras -> Add on Mac / Win / Android. Enter an arbitrary name, your camera's IP address (typically, but not necessarily, 192.168.1.1) and select your camera type (Nikon / Canon). Press Add to confirm. Now you have a camera entry to connect to under "Select a camera" button - tap it to connect, tap once again to disconnect.

Have the same issue. Wifi connection seems not possible. Number 3 Stas Yatsenko wrote, Setup the device' is not even working for me.
