How to set up and use SnapBridge.

Watch the video

Share your images in the moment.

Take a great shot with your camera, then pull out your phone—the image will be in your photo library as if you took it with your phone! Share it right then, and watch the likes start rolling in.

Always connected.

Pair them one time over Bluetooth, and your camera and phone are good to go.

Always in sync.

Automatically transfer your shots as you take them, or select your favorites one by one.

Always easy.

Edit and add filters, post on social media and more… just like you do with the images you take with your phone.

Get creative with remote camera control.

When you can’t be behind the camera, like when you’re vlogging, taking a selfie or you have your camera mounted out of reach, use your phone to see what the camera sees, adjust your settings and start recording or taking photos.

Easy vlogging.

Check your composition, start recording and review your footage without ever moving from the front of the camera.

Sharp long exposures.

Eliminate the camera shake that can blur long exposures by using your phone as a shutter trigger.

Stunning self portraits.

Adjust your ISO and white balance, take a series of selfies and then review the shots, all from your phone.

Update your camera’s firmware on the go.

New features available for your camera? SnapBridge will alert you, download the firmware and then install it on your camera—totally wirelessly with the touch of a button.

Automatically back up your photos to the cloud.

In addition to syncing with your phone or tablet, SnapBridge can automatically sync your images to a free cloud storage account on Nikon Image Space.

More features:

  • Add hashtags, copyright info and even your logo to your images.
  • Save the GPS info from your phone or tablet to your images.
  • Pair up to five cameras with one phone or tablet.
