Can any of the new higher end cameras transmit wirelessly via a SECURE File Transfer Protocol connection?

I don't think there's any out there that do that yet.

Well, it's not new, but the Nikon D2H has an optional WT-1A Wireless Transmitter (802.11b) that you can setup for FTP transfers.Security is only what's typically provided via 802.11b (for example, it supports WEP).

The new Nikon D2Xwill havea newer wireless transmitter available (the WT-2A) that's faster (802.11g). It has increased security viaWEP TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol). The WT-2A only works with the Nikon D2X (it won't work with a D2H).

Right... that's what I was wondering. Are there any reviews of the wireless transmitter? I'd like to know exactly how it works and if the transmitter shows you are connecting, etc...

Nobody's reviewed the new one for the D2X yet (because the D2X isn't even shipping yet to my knowledge). But, Phil Askey did include how the WT-1 works with his D2H review. As a general rule, I don't like to send users elsewhere. But, since his is the only review of the WT-1 that I'm aware of, you can find it at http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikond2h/page15.asp

You can set it up to automatically place all images in the queue, or you can select desired images to send while in the camera's playback mode. Status is available via a Setup screen (uses the Camera's LCD).
