So I decided to give the wifi a try. Very interesting concept. I took a pic of my wife and I and instead of using the self timer I put the camera on a rock and was able to take the shot with my camera. Its nice to be able to view the scene before taking the pic. Not something I would use a lot but still fun.

So you were able to see the live view on the screen of your laptop of tablet and compose and shoot remotely?

Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

Once you set the camera up basically the tablet becomes the live view, you cant really compose shot unless you move the actual camera. You cant zoom etc etc.  However you can move the focus point around. I can see this being handy when you wish to shoot something remote ( birds, maybe animals) and just use the tablet or phone to take the actual shot. Not really sure what distance you can go. Heck I am of the old school, still puzzled how this works. Do you actually sign into a dedicated Nikon server or something else.??? Anybody any ideas???

This is something the 850 can also do now with 'Snapbridge'... you need to use both Bluetooth and wifi but you can take photos, view live view, select focus point, then download manually or automatically to your device. phone/tablet with a choice of full size image or a 2megapixel version (JPG) . I don't think downloading fullsize images is wise... be rather slow.... I think you can chose to upload to 'Nikon Image Space as well ...if you have signed up (free). It is quite cool ...set Snapbridge to download 2mp pics as you take them and you can easily upload to a social media site or where ever you choose from your phone/tablet.... I put some on 'our' FB page today.

I hear many folks are encountering hassles when trying to combine Apple's IOS with snapbridge.

 

I'll be linking up my B700 as well. Should have it today when returning to The Hague.

 

BUT, we of course don't have those hassles with our Androids, do we, Peter?!

What app are you using to connect with.   Have been trying to get something to act as a remote shutter release.  Really don't need to view it.

"Snapbridge" OD ... a Nikon app... it is rather limited in what you can do...but it does remote triggering/viewing/focus point.  Nowhere near as useful as 'DSLRdashboard' where you can do all sorts  change shutter/aperture/timings etc.

Welcome to the modern interconnected world  :D

 

I quite often trigger my Fuji in the same way by using my iPhone as a live view screen while having control over exposure, WB etc - I also trigger my iPhone using my Apple Watch, again having live view on it to help compose the image.

My XE2 is the same as BP I can control so much with my iPhone that it acts like a tilt screen that is not connected to my camera. I can also do some basic stuff with my P900 but I have less control mostly just a trigger its is the older Nikon WMU app.

I've been trying to link up my B700 via SnapBridge. Bluetooth was a breez but my attempts at trying to connect with wifi was making my hair greyer by the day.

 

Anyway, I managed to locate the culprit on my Samsung Note III. There was a tick under the wifi section on my phone indicating an "active intelligent switching" possibility between 2,4GHz and 5GHz bands.

I removed the tick and was able to get a wifi connection via SnapBridge and my camera straight away. Unless overlooked, I have not been able to find this on any Nikon documentation as it is smartphone related.

 

Thought I'd mention it in case any of you encounter similar frustrating moments!

 

:)  :rolleyes:  :)
