There have been [wireless tethering] options on the market that solve one or two problems but then would fall short in other situations. Nikon has been making wireless transmitters for cameras for a long time. The early ones were large and bulky, offered no camera control, were a nightmare to set up, and cost a quarter of what the camera cost. The newer ones are great and offer limited camera control but have slow upload speeds and eat the camera battery. Finally, the CamRanger came out and saved my life! The system offers everything I could ask for out of my Nikon camera system. I am able to remotely set up my camera and have full control over almost every option of the system, even manual focusing.
