Appendix

Intro to Nikon SnapBridge

Your D7500 enables you to connect your camera wirelessly to a smartphone or tablet. After establishing the connection, you upload photos to the device, making it easy to then share them via social media. You also can use your smart device as a wireless remote control.

To enjoy these features, you must install the Nikon SnapBridge app on your smart device. The app is free, but is available only for devices that run recent versions of the Android OS (operating system) or Apple iOS. Visit Google Play for Android apps; go the App Store for iOS apps. The current OS requirements appear on the download page for that app.

Your smart device also must offer Bluetooth low-energy (BLE), a special Bluetooth feature that minimizes the battery power required to handle wireless data transmission. (Look for Bluetooth version 4.0 or later.)

I can’t provide detailed instructions for using SnapBridge because things vary depending on your device and its operating system. In addition, when Nikon issues updates to the app — which it is likely to do as it introduces new cameras that offer SnapBridge support — some aspects of the app itself may change. As I write this, the most current versions of the SnapBridge app are 1.3.1.3 for Android and Version 1.3.0 for iOS.

That said, this appendix provides you with some general guidance in taking advantage of SnapBridge. For additional help, including tutorials that explain setup steps and features, point your web browser to ...
