Nikon has just updated its popular camera wireless remote technology to version 2. The update reflects feedback from users of earlier versions of the app and represents a complete overhaul of screen design and menu structure. It also offers new functions, including instructions for connecting to a camera, which was a chief complaint when users who were using Apple’s IOS, that make the app easier to use, more intuitive, and enable a simpler connection between the application and camera.
The Major Updates:
- A new screen design and menu structure for improved operation
Screen design and menu structure have been significantly overhauled in a number of ways, including the adoption of progress displays, to provide visual confirmation of the status of an operation. These include when a smart device is paired with a camera or connection is changed to a Wi-Fi® connection. Direct access to help functions from the app menu is also available.
- Instructions that make it easier to pair for the first time are displayed
The app offers different instructions for each category of camera. With explanations of the steps to be taken with both the smart device and the camera provided using text and images, even those attempting to pair devices for the first time will have an easy time of it.
- Lower power consumption, faster operations, and more stable connections
The app is also equipped with a new power-saving mode that controls the amount of smart device power consumed by the app when it is not connected to a camera for an extended period of time.
- Greater flexibility with remote photography
Important digital SLR camera settings can now be controlled from the SnapBridge app with remote photography.
- More thorough collaboration with Nikon’s photo-sharing service, NIKON IMAGE SPACE
SnapBridge Version 2.0 has a dedicated tab that makes it easier than ever to use NIKON IMAGE SPACE.
It seems that Nikon has improved the application in quite a positive way and many who photographers, amateurs and professionals alike, who are using the IOS application will find that they will have an easier time connecting to their Nikon camera bodies.
