Nikon D3s and D700 wifi options

As a sports photographer needing to shoot, download, edit and send out to the agency I need to cut my workflow down to a fast efficient one. I'd ideally like to find some way of sending images to my MBP from my Nikon D3s and D700 while I'm shooting but I cannot justify the cost of Nikon's wifi transmitter. Does anyone know of an alternative? Using USB is not really practical.

Thanks in advance.

    Yes, but it will take some digging on your part. Google a thing called a "wireless usb cable" You can buy them on ebay. There is several sets of doc's on the net that tell you how to modify it. It works perfect once you learn how to use it. I use it with Capture NX2. It's downloads at about 1/2 the speed of a USB cable. I posted a complete howto on the old board about two years ago but they deleted the link to addtional info.

    Good luck,

    It cost me less than $50 and works with my D2h D2hs and D3s.

    I would be interested in that as well - spraynpray's post is 3years old - I know there is better stuff out there now if anyone has seen any that would be great! :) With the D800 the transfer time is a major concern.

    Cables Unlimited is out of business. I will post another company that makes the adapter on Monday after I get back to work. FYI whis is not a wifi device. It is a wireless usb cable. I've been using it for close to 2 years. I have a 12ft pole I can mount my D3s on, using LV I can see what the camera see's on my laptop, focus, adjust the camera and take a photo. Only limitation is the range about 30 - 40 feet. It can also be used just like you have a usb cable attached to your camera. I cuurrently use Nikon Camera Control Pro 2 for the D3s and the old Nikon Capture 4.42 for my D2h.

    FYI Cables Unlimited is still going if you click through the screen (as of 1/20/2013).

    Someone took them over and they no longer have the wireless USB device.

    I've been unable to find a current Wireless USB Cable being made. The company that makes the chipset is Wisair. It can be google'd for a link. They show where to buy their products but nobody seems to sell the USB wireless cable. The two places I bought from are gone. This is really bad luck, was a great product.
