Nikon D3200 Wifi

The Nikon D3200 does not have built-in wifi. For a Nikon camera with wifi, here are the best Nikon D3200 upgrades.

If you want to use wireless with the Nikon D3200 you will need a Eye-Fi SD card. The Eye-Fi card has Wifi built-in which will allow you to have a wifi connection and transfer pictures to your phone.

There is no wifi adapter that is compatible with the D3200. If you need to be able to upload images while out shooting photos you can get a SD card reader that will work with a smartphone or tablet.

Eye-Fi Wifi SD Cards

Nikon D3200 Wifi capability can be achieved through the use of a Eye-Fi SD card. However, Eye-Fi memory cards are not recommended for several reasons.

Before the Eye-Fi company went out of business in 2016, it dropped support for all Eye-Fi cards due to security vulnerabilities. While Eye-Fi Wifi cards can still be purchased, they are expensive and hard to find.

In addition to being expensive, the largest storage capacity Eye-Fi Mobi SD cards that were produced were 32GB and limited to Class 10 speed. You're better off getting one of the best Nikon D3200 Memory Cards.

Speed over Eye-Fi Wifi will be slower to transfer images than newer devices. That's because the cards are limited to the 802.11b/g Wi-fi standard.

Does the Nikon D3200 Have Bluetooth?

No, the Nikon D3200 does not have Bluetooth. There are no Bluetooth adapters for the Nikon D3200.

If you want Wi-fi capability to be able to download images to a phone, you will need a newer DSLR or some Coolpix models.

Nikon WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter

The Nikon WU-1a Wireless Adapter is compatible with the Nikon D3200. However, it appears support for the Nikon Wireless Utility mobile app has been dropped for Android and iOS.

The adapter should allow you to download photos from and control the camera. The latest version of Android supported is 9.0 and for iOS it is 13.2.

It should therefore be no surprise that the app has bad ratings. I would not recommend trying to use the WU-1a with the Nikon D3200. If you need smartphone connectivity there are Nikon D3200 upgrades that have better compatibility with current phones.

Remote Control

There are cabled and wireless remote shutter controls for the Nikon D3200. Remote control shutter releases will connect to the D3200 through the DC2 port.
