Airnef - Wireless download from your Nikon/Sony/Canon Camera!

The app should work with all Nikon cameras that have built-in WiFi interface, and third-party Wi-Fi adapter Nikon WU-1a and WU-1b. Other external wireless adapters like the WT-4A and WT-5A may work but were not tested.
Canon cameras are also supported, but since the latest version of the app also have learned to work with the Sony cameras.

In addition download photos and images you already took, the app features a download mode in real time, which allows you to transfer images to your computer, once you take them off, if your camera supports it.

Major Features

This is a partial list of camera's I've personally tested. Even if your camera is not listed it may still work.

Airnef also has a graphical interface that can be used to specify the download folder, what files to transfer, and so on, and a console application that, for example, can be used in scripts.

Use Airnef simple enough, but here is a simple guide on how to start doing it. First, you will need to connect the camera to your computer. To do this, enable wireless connection on your camera and on your computer, connect to a WiFi network your camera.

Then on your computer run Airnef and make sure that the ip address of the camera is set to "192.168.1.1". At least for Nikon cameras this should be a valid IP address default:

If you are in the network where this IP address is already in use (e.g. your router), you can either disconnect from the network or change the IP address of the camera – judging by the website Airnef, for Nikon cameras this can be done using a single procedure with the application Nikon Wireless Mobile Utility (iOS and Android). Exact instructions for this you can find on the home page Airnef.

Then click "Select on Computer", select which files to transfer, download location and other parameters and click Start Download:
