SNAPBRIDGE

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. SnapBridge stays connected to your camera in the background: now you can transfer shots as you shoot without needing to reconnect each time. Images will even sync with your camera while it’s in sleep mode, and you can continue to use your smart device without interruption. With SnapBridge your smart device can display a live view of everything your Nikon camera sees. Compose shots on the screen of your smartphone or tablet and remotely fire the shutter to capture the image.

Introducing the latest COOLPIX cameras and the SnapBridge app, Ines Bernardes, Product Manager for COOLPIX at Nikon Europe, said: “The new additions to the COOLPIX range give outstanding performance, bringing details to life like never before. You can capture more than you ever dreamed possible with super-zooms, while the new SnapBridge app makes instant sharing and automatic image transfer effortless. Whether you’re into action sports, travel photography or simply taking portraits of friends and family at home, there’s a new COOLPIX camera that’s just right for you.”
