Stay away from this company, they sent me a refurbished/used/malfunctioning unit. No support, co phone #, it took them 2 weeks to ship and another 14 days to arrive from Canada. It's like I got coal for Christmas...
Hardware won't pair, keeps rebooting my camera, the metal sleeve around the camera connector came loose, stays in the camera when I try removing the adapter..
In one word: junk...
Good app, bad instructions and no help
Okay, I have a d90. When I first got
The adapter it didn't work. The instructions in the box were pitiful. I had to google the instructions online. Then I was still having problems. Called the tech support and never heard a response. But the next
Day it just started working. The bio of the people that created the product was nice. But it is a small company so
They have alot of learning to do.
Wow- really works!

I have a Nikon D300, and while I'm happy with the camera I wished it had GPS capabilities like my Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 point and shoot. Well, with the blueSLR now I do!
Very easy to connect the blueSLR dongle to the correct port on the D300, just do so and load the app on your mobile device (in my case an iPhone 4) and your on your way. Then just turn on your camera, and pair the blueSLR dongle to your mobile device like you would any other bluetooth device. Once paired you don't have to do this step again. The software allows you to not only capture GPS info (I uploaded my pictures in Aperture (v. 3.1.1) and Latitude, Longitude and Altitude GPS info was captured into the EXIF data- very cool! The app also can capture speed but I haven't been moving fast enough to measure anything, plus Aperture doesn't capture or display speed so not much value for that data.
BlueSLR also worked fine as a remote trigger (to autofocus, set a remote timer, or to actually fire the shot from the app).
In-app help described all the other settings in the app fine, nicely done!
Nothing is perfect and in my very limited use so far I see 2 things I would like improved:
1- the ability in the application to toggle out of Metric display. In the app Altitude is measured in meters, and Speed in meters/sec. Would be nice to be able to display feet and feet/sec...
2- While the app does capture and display Heading info (e.g., SE, 135.85 degrees Magnetic), the heading info didn't get populated in the "Direction" tag within Aperture. Not sure is this is an Aperture fault of the blueSLR app fault...
Overall very happy and recommended!
