In this post, I’m going to show you how to establish a wireless connection between your iPad or iPhone and the camera so that the photos taken will be instantly available for preview or post-editing with your favourite app on your iPhone or iPad.

Connecting Nikon Z Series Camera to iOS

To establish a connection between your Nikon Z series camera and your iPad or iPhone, take the following steps:

  1. Download the SnapBridge app from the App Store on your iPad or iPhone and launch it.
  2. Check to accept the Application Agreement License and then tap Start.
  3. accept click startaccept click start
  4. Tap “Connect to camera”.
  5. connect to cameraconnect to camera
  6. Select the type of camera you are using; in this case, we will be choosing the “mirrorless camera”.
  7. select camera typeselect camera type
  8. Now select “Pairing (Bluetooth)”.

    Once this is done, the SnapBridge app will provide you with two options to achieve a wireless connection between your iOS device and the camera i.e., “WiFi Connection” or “WiFi + Bluetooth Connection.”

    Note: The former option establishes a one-time connection between the two devices and the latter method – which I would recommend – will ensure that the two devices are always connected as long as Bluetooth and WiFi are turned on.

  9. Now, on your camera, press the Menu button.
  10. Navigate to SETUP MENU > Connect to smart devices > Pairing (Bluetooth).
