SnapBridge Version 2 aims to improve remote photography

Nikon has released version 2.0 of the SnapBridge app, which is used to connect Nikon digital cameras equipped Wi-Fi and / or Bluetooth to a smart device.

The remote connectivity settings of the app have been updated in the new version, which the company claims will make it easier to shoot remotely.

Version 2.0 offers remote control for more DSLR camera settings on the smart device, including exposure mode (P/S/A/M), shutter speed, aperture value, exposure compensation, ISO sensitivity and white balance.

The main screen has been updated in the new version

However, these settings will only work if your Nikon is equipped with Wi-Fi.

The company also claims that the update makes the software easier to use thanks to an overhaul made to the screen design and clearer instructions for first-time users.

The screen now features progress displays to confirm when a smart device is paired with a camera or connection is changed to a Wi-Fi connection.

Up to five cameras can now be paired to the device

Nikon has also included more comprehensive instructions for each category of camera which can be paired.

Up to five cameras can now be registered with the smart device running the app to make switching between cameras more efficient.

Nikon has also claimed to improve the speed that images are displayed and has included a new power-saving mode with location data accuracy settings to adjust whether location or battery consumption are more important.
