What's New in Version 2.0.3
Made some minor bug fixes.
We look forward to making still more improvements based on your feedback!
Doesn't work with the flagship Nikon D850 or anything else
Really, Nikon? WMU works with the low end amateur cameras. Consistently. But this abysmal failure doesn't work at all. Why is it that Sony can consistently deliver connectivity, but Nikon can't offer a reasonable solution for their top of the line camera, or any other (I also have the D7500) body. It sometimes worked with version 1 of your software, requiring forgetting/deleting profile EVERY time, then signing up again each time to transfer 1-2 images. REALLY?!? What 75-year-old, out-of-touch engineer thinks this is a workable solution for a modern professional who is charged with social media duties? Now version 2 of this software just hangs and won't connect at all. Calling Nikon tech support doesn't lead to any solutions. As an NPS member, I'm embarrassed by this incredible blunder and complete failure. Wait for version 3 and don't buy a Nikon body until they can fix this, something that every other company can do.
EDIT: With the latest update, snap bridge actually works the way it is supposed to. I have to completely change my review, as it actually works as promised, making the D850 the perfect camera for professionals! Took them a year, but someone is listening!
Way better than before BUT ...
Ok this is definitely way better than before, the app is faster and I don’t have to spend an entire day waiting for photos to load then another day waiting for them transfer. Also great update that the app doesn’t allow the screen to lock while in use causing the transfer to cancel. BUT! I have been noticing that the photos are losing quality when they are transferred (and yes I do choose original/large size) please look into this. It defeats the purpose of having a DSL camera when the photos end up looking more grainy and pixelated than they do on a phone camera ...
Please fix connection issues on IOS!!!
This app is great...when it works...which is almost never.
Connect to Bluetooth is usually ok but has no useful functionality.
WiFi connection goes about 1/5 of the time to match my star rating. When it’s grumpy, this thing may take a couple days to work itself out. No amount of forgetting the camera and reconnecting does the trick. Then...magically, it works. I’ve tried everything I can think of. I’m losing my mind trying to get a pic or two a day out of my D850. Brutal. Unnecessary. Nikon-please help.
Auto download might work on Bluetooth, but I don’t want to deal with 1000’s of unprocessed pics on my phone. I’d love another Bluetooth option (for a reliable connection to move a few small files) to return to the mix.
