EASILY SHARE BETTER IMAGES WITH SNAPBRIDGE

It has never been easier to share high-quality photos: now your Nikon images can light up your social networks in seconds. SnapBridge uses Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) to maintain a constant, low-power connection between your Nikon camera and up to five smart devices. Photos can be automatically transferred from the camera to your phone or tablet as you shoot. Pick up your smart device and your photos will be there, ready for you to review, edit in your favourite app, or upload to your social feeds. Images synced while shooting are instantly re-sized so they’re easy to review and quick to upload to social media. If you don’t want to automatically sync every photo, simple controls let you manually sync specific photos, transfer images at larger resolutions, and sync movies.

THE PERFECT PAIR: ALWAYS CONNECTED, NEVER IN THE WAY

Pairing a smart device with your Nikon camera is a simple, one-time operation. Simply install the SnapBridge app on your smartphone or tablet, power up your camera, and select it from the in-app list of available devices. Now you can transfer shots as you shoot without needing to reconnect each time. Shots will even sync with your camera while it’s in sleep mode, and you can continue to use your smart device without interruption. SnapBridge maintains the constant connection with your camera via Bluetooth® low energy (BLE), which ensures ultra-low battery impact on both your smart device and the camera. SnapBridge automatically switches to standard Bluetooth or Wi-Fi only when transferring images.¹ ²

KEEP A TAG ON YOUR IMAGES

Every time you land in a new location, SnapBridge automatically updates your camera with the right time and date. As soon as your phone or tablet updates itself, your camera does too. Now all your shots will be in the correct date order no matter how many time zones you cross. SnapBridge also makes it simple to geotag images so it’s easy to plot photos on a map, or get your travel images ready for sharing. Additional information can also be displayed in the images you sync from your camera to your smart device, including EXIF shooting data, credits, and comments.

TAKE THE SHOT. REMOTELY.

See the bigger picture—literally. When SnapBridge is installed, your smart device has the power to display a live view of everything your Nikon camera sees. Compose shots on the screen of your smartphone or tablet. Remotely fire the shutter to capture the image. Depending on camera model, you can also use your smart device to operate the camera’s touch AF and zoom functions.

AUTOMATIC UPLOAD TO NIKON IMAGE SPACE

Automatic uploads to your own Nikon Image Space account mean you don’t need to overload your smart device with all the images you shoot. Free, unlimited storage is provided for images synched and re-sized while shooting. Plus you get 20 GB of free storage space for images and videos saved at larger resolutions. You can organise your images in several meaningful ways, and photos can appear in more than one place. Arrange your shots into albums for sharing. Create themed galleries. Sort photos by capture date, upload date, or the Nikon camera they were taken on.

STAY UP TO DATE

Never miss a firmware update again, thanks to automatic notifications from SnapBridge. The app detects when updates are available for your camera, and notifies you right away. And if you want to register your new Nikon camera(s), SnapBridge offers a simple solution via your smart device. Simply sync your new camera with your smartphone or tablet and SnapBridge will automatically enter details such as camera model and serial number.
