Pictures automatically transferred to your smartphone as they are taken

Imagine how easy it would be to upload your favorite Nikon shots to social media if they automatically transfered to your smart device when you took them. SnapBridge opens a connection between your Nikon camera and a compatible smart device, so each shot you take automatically appears on your smart device. Just go through the setup steps, and you will be ready to share your stories with the world, anytime you wish.

Seamless connection between the camera and smart device

SnapBridge uses Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) technology to maintain a connection with a compatible smart device.This communication isn’t just one way either: time and location information from your smartphone can be tagged to each photo. This connection is unaffected by using email, texting, web browsing or any other smart device apps, and photo transfers continue even when the phone is in a pocket or purse.

Simple setup

Pairing the camera and your compatible smartphone has become easier with SnapBridge. All you need to do is to install the SnapBridge app onto to your smart device and register your Nikon camera with the app. That’s all. Once you have done this, a connection will be automatically established between the two devices. What’s more, this process is needed only once for each smart device, because the camera automatically detects a previously connected device on all subsequent occasions.

Stable connection, minimal battery consumption

Once established, the connection between your Nikon camera and compatible smart device stays alive as long as the camera battery is installed and the two devices remain in close proximity. The good news is you don’t have to worry about excessive battery consumption in either device, thanks to Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) technology, the advanced technology that connects the devices with minimal energy use.

Unlimited photo storage on Nikon Image Space

Once you have connected your Nikon camera and smart device, register for a Nikon ID to receive free unlimited online storage of your thumbnail pictures and 20GB of free storage for full-size pictures on NIKON IMAGE SPACE. The SnapBridge smart device app has an option for automatically uploading thumbnails to NIKON IMAGE SPACE, providing further convenience. Nikon ID registration is easy, as the model name and serial number of your camera will be already entered when you first launch the SnapBridge app. So sign up and take full advantage of SnapBridge!

More capabilities, more convenience

Discover exciting new perspectives with remote camera control

Using your smartphone screen as a camera monitor, you can release the shutter from a distance. Taking selfies and group shots has never been easier! With zoom control and self timer also possible, it offers endless possibilities for your shooting styles.

Note: Remote camera control function is not available for the D3400.

Find out when new firmware is available for your camera

Nikon will send notifications to the SnapBridge app when new firmware is available for the camera that your smartphone is connected to. This way, you can enjoy all the latest camera features, without missing firmware updates.

Use your smartphone to add captions to your photos

Easily add a copyright, comments, shooting information or text to your photos. This speeds up the process of sharing pictures online.

Tag your photos with date, time and location information

The camera automatically synchronizes its location and time information to that of your smartphone. This feature comes in handy when traveling to different time zones, as smartphones automatically adjust to the local time.
