For new or returning readers of this blog post, we would like to refer you to the more recent version of this blog post. Please head hereto read it and share your thoughts. This more recent version highlights updates we’ve made with SnapBridge version 2.6and, in response to all your feedback, commentary shared by Nikon Europe Product Marketing Manager, Dirk Jasper.
There are many reasons why we’re excited to bring you the long-awaited Nikon D500. We could spend hours going over the exceptionally wide coverage provided by its next-generation 153-point AF system and another hour covering the new EXPEED 5 processing engine. However, one new feature we’re particularly happy about in the Nikon D500 is SnapBridge!
What is SnapBridge?
Snapbridge is an always-on image transfer service that enables a constant connection between Nikon cameras and smart devices.
Via Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) technology, SnapBridge enables the continuous and immediate transfer of images from the camera to a smart device as they are captured in real time, transforming photography into a social, connected experience. This is achieved automatically without the need to activate image transfer from the camera, while also keeping power consumption low for both devices. Users can also continue to enjoy mobile internet connectivity during image transfer, allowing them to check their e-mail or access social media while syncing their photographs.
How to get started with SnapBridge?
Pairing starts from the ‘Connect to smart device’ option in the camera’s Setup menu, and not from ‘Bluetooth’ or ‘Wi-Fi’ menu in smart devices.
Once you have found this option in your camera menu, follow the steps in this video to complete the pairing process.
