    Nikon should add the functionality of using the SnapBridge app and the headphone jack on Nikon cameras to allow iPhone 7 users to use wired headphones :p

    • Schtatten

      😮
      Oh no you didn’t! lol

    • Eric Calabros

      With issues they would encounter with Nikon solution, they would ended up appreciating Apple again for removing that.

    • Rudi

      The iPhone 7 comes with wired headphones! Wireless is optional. And it also comes with a small adapter if you want to use your “old” 3.5mm connectors.

    • ZoetMB

      You CAN use wired headphones with a traditional mini-plug on an iPhone7 with the FREE adapter that comes IN THE BOX. Also IN THE BOX is a pair of wired earphones that use the Lightning jack.

      I don’t know why people don’t get this. Once there’s an Internet meme, everyone sticks to the meme and ignores actual facts.

        So after years and years of work, standardized connectors for , among others, headphones, usb connectors etc. etc. where agreed upon by the industry worldwide, and Applefinds the ned to deviate from all that by first the lightning connection for USB, and now it also needs a small, easy to lose headphone jack….. typacally the Aplle way of doing things…lol

        • dabug91

          Exactly. There’s no reason Apple shouldn’t have began using USB-C an entire year ago, and no valid reason at all for removing the 3.5mm jack. Every Apple customer on the planet is just a sucker.

  • Schtatten

    lol

    even FBI cyber investigators cant figure out whats going on in Snapbridge case. D500 worked but not flawlessly, D3400 worked but only with BLE. and released months ago B500 while has both BT and Wifi still not supported!

  • Dennis W.

    Interesting, a friend of mine has a d7200 and can connect directly via WIFI. Browse images and…AND download the RAW files without editing them to JPG.

    The D500 can use the same Nikon WMU app, BUT WiFi is required to be activated first via the Snapbridge app. Only then via several steps I can connect (open snapbridge, connect via BTW, than activate browse and then select Yes to start WiFi).

    Is there an easier way to connect with the D500?

    • Eric Calabros

      Please make a video of this procedure. Many people have no idea how to do that.

    • C_QQ_C

      Interresting, trying this, did not know this yet…thx !

  • Spy Black

    Well that didn’t take long…

      iOS 10 released today, so it wouldn’t be surprising that they had some bugs to iron out for the new OS.

  • waterengineer

    There is really no reason to use Apple anything.

    • JasonsArgonauts

      But they’re shiny. That’s enough for many.

      Hasn’t the iPhone changed the world. Get over it! What a bunch of geeks! Look at your beloved phones before and after the iPhone. I know you already know that but the hatred is too much so you’ll never admit it.

      • waterengineer

        Marketing fools many. You prove that. No the iToy has not changed the world. BTW, is that a question because there is no question mark. You’re welcome.

        • Fly Moon

          Are you a f00l? Marketing? It’s a fact. Look at Samsung, LG, Sony phones before and after Apple’s iPhone was introduced in 2007.

          • waterengineer

            Perfect. You don’t have a successful argument so you provide a derogatory comment about the poster. You really show your hand by behaving that way. and thanks for biting. Yes, apple is all marketing for a closed system, in a slick, over-priced package. If Apple is successful at anything it is marketing said closed, over-priced system to their sheeple. Some of us are not fooled.

            • nwcs

              You sure have a bug up your butt about Apple. What does it really matter? The cult of smartphone supremacy is ridiculous whether it’s Apple, Android, or any other vendor. Thankfully there’s room for more than one opinion in this world — for now until it’s declared illegal to have an opinion contrary to mainstream.

            • Sawyerspadre

              So better to have a Note 7, with free flames included? We do smart home stuff, with apps on Android and iOS. On a variety of networks and individual devices, iOS is almost always faster and easier to setup, and has a higher chance of success. Apple users tend to update more, so the variability in which Android flavor is reduced.

    • Rudi

      Microsoft? HaHa!! No joke is as good as life.

    • Max

      And if you do get an iPhone you need a cover with a hole so the logo can show through. Because people have to see that you have a Apple.

    • peter w

      One reason: if you don’t want to spend time trying to understand how it works. For a thing like a phone, it is quite nice that it works like you think it works. For a computer, that may be a different thing.
      I use Photoshop of some sort on my windows system to create fancy jokes for one of my collegues who retires. Another collegue doesn’t need photoshop for that, he just needs his iMac… ;).

    • nwcs

      Of course. There’s no reason to use a camera, either. It’s not like it’s essential to living or life.

    • ZoetMB

      Neither is there a reason to use Nikon anything. But people make choices and almost all are valid.

  • ZoetMB

    You need to change the headline from “Nikon SnapBridge for iOS version 1.0.1 released” to “Nikon SnapBridge version 1.0.1 released for iOS”. Otherwise it sounds like it’s been released for iOS version 1.0.1, which if it existed at all, is 10 versions back.

    I’ve tried yesterday the updated snapbridge, it’s reliable of remote photography and download selected picture had been improve, I need to first activate the d500 setting menu, then tap”download selected picture” , then the app will ask me if I want to connect via wifi, I tap yes then it will ask another question: u wanna go setting to connect the d500 wifi, then I choose go, then come back to app I’m able to browse in camera picture, download 2mp photo for 2-3 secs, it’s quite ok just the every time asking for connect wifi really annoying.
    The last thing, auto sending photo is not working since, even how I enable all the require setting, it just not sending picture automatically. So any one facing same problem or just me?

    • Scott M.

      Yes. I got it to remote take photo and focus but no transfer of pics at any size. Now with iOS10…nothing works at all.

      • Michael

        I’ve tried unpairing and forget the camera, and then reconnect, finally the auto download is work, it’s not bad, although I use some time to figure out how it’s auto connect, when the camera is in standby mode metering off, the Bluetooth is disconnect, when half press camera or take picture, the phone Bluetooth is connecting again, but this still not stable, some times it’s won’t connect. Anyway I put the phone in standby mode on table, shoot the camera in my little house, the picture is sending to my phone, for about 8 secs per pic, I think this is real better than the initial release of the app.

      • Apparently, as someone mentioned in a comment when Snapbridge was first released, you must be shooting jpeg or RAW/jpeg. RAW files will not transfer.

        • Scott M.

          Thanks
          I did see that and had it set to raw&.jpg. Maybe try with just .jpg. But if that is the case, I’m out. Easier by far to just take pic of lcd screen with iPhone.

  • Max

    That is pretty cool.

  • nwcs

    A lot of people wonder if Apple will do that or let the tech sit on the shelf. I hope they do license it. It would be a win-win for consumers and Apple.
