Simple Wireless Sharing of Photos and Videos with the Z 50

Sharing your photos and videos with the Nikon Z 50 is quick and easy.

All you need is your camera, compatible smartphone or tablet and the free Nikon SnapBridge app which can be found on the Apple App store and Google Play store. Just download the app onto your iPhone® or iPad® or smart device running on the Android™ operating system and follow the prompts to pair the camera via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi®.

Once you pair the Z 50 and your smartphone or tablet, you can download photos and videos to your device for speedy sharing to your favorite social media sites or by text or email. The SnapBridge app even lets you control your camera remotely so you can take photos or start and stop video capture. There are options for downloading a recommended smaller sized image file or the full sized image.

Nikon’s even got an image sharing site, Nikon Image Space, that gives you 20 Gigs of storage free when you sign up for a Nikon ID and register your Nikon camera.

Once you've downloaded images to your smart device you can quickly share them to your favorite social sites or via text or email.

Download to Computer Too

You can even download photos and videos to your Mac or Windows-PC with the free Nikon Wireless Utility software. You even have the choice of connecting directly to your computer or to your home network. Check out your camera’s user’s manual for step-by-step instructions on setting it up.

Wired Connectivity & Other Options

There are a couple other Z series connectivity options to get your images and video from the camera to computers and smart devices. You can use an inexpensive third-party card reader to download files, especially large video files or RAW NEF image files. There are card readers made for connecting to computers and others that connect to your smartphone or tablet. This is, by far, the quickest and easiest way to get the files out of the camera and onto your device. Lastly, if you’re just looking to download images to your computer over a wired connection you can connect the camera via USB to a Mac or Windows-based PC for image and video downloading.
