How can I pair my Nikon Camera with PhotoSync to transfer photos/videos or enable remote shooting?

After successful configuration you will be able to transfer photos / videos from your Nikon camera to your iPhone / iPad over Wi-Fi. PhotoSync also enables shoot & transfer: Photos & videos are transferred to your iPhone / iPad right after shooting. Optionally also immediate transfer to remote locations (computer, NAS, cloud) can be configured and photo booth support over HDMI & Airplay to a big TV screen is possible. You can connect your iPhone / iPad directly to the camera's Wi-Fi network. Selected Nikon cameras you may also connect to an existing Wi-Fi network or a mobile hotspot.



  • A Wi-Fi network or mobile hotspot (required for shoot & save to remote targets like computer, NAS or cloud)

Step 1

Open the settings menu on your Nikon camera and select "Connect to smart device". Some models also have a menu item called just "Wi-Fi". If this entry is present, please select it instead.
