Your images. The world.
Connected

Welcome to SnapBridge — Nikon’s new family of services to enrich your image experience, connecting your camera and smart device seamlessly through Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) technology.

In an age when countless images are created and shared in the blink of an eye, getting the shot isn’t the end of the experience — it’s only the beginning.

Imagine if that special image you’ve just created could be easily shared, at the instant it comes together with your Nikon camera and lenses.

Imagine if at the very moment of capture, your family and friends could experience what you see and how you feel, via images that are rich, sharp, and full of vibrancy.

Imagine if a moment that moves you could be shared among people in distant corners of the world, telling your story eloquently through the power of your images.

SnapBridge lets you do all this, and more, eliminating the barrier between your camera and compatible smart device. Your breathtaking images are automatically transferred to the device as they are taken. They can even be uploaded effortlessly to cloud storage services, inviting access across all your devices. You can share your excitement, when and where you want.

Imagine what happens when your images and the world have a constant connection — imagine with Nikon SnapBridge.

Pictures saved on your compatible smart device before you know it, via seamless connection between the camera and smart device

Imagine how easy it would be to upload camera-taken pictures on social media, if they were saved on your smart device seamlessly and automatically. SnapBridge opens a constant connection between your Nikon camera and compatible smart device, with pictures automatically transferred as you take them. This communication isn’t just one way either: it provides further convenience including automatic syncing of the camera’s time and location information to that of the smart device.

The automatic picture transfer continues unaffected even when your smart device is stored in your bag or the camera is turned off. It operates uninterrupted by incoming and outgoing e-mail, syncing data with cloud services, or netsurfing. Automatic transfer can be switched on/off from the application’s Auto Link options. When automatically transferring, all images are reduced in size to 2 megapixels, which enables easy handling with your smart device.

Stable connection with no need to worry about excessive 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 constantly connects the devices with minimal energy use. What’s more, the SnapBridge app employs a power-saving mode, which minimizes battery consumption of the smart device.

Once you have done this, a connection will be automatically established between the two devices.
