Snap­Bridge

NPhoto - - Gear Zone -

Snap­Bridge is ar­guable the big­gest ad­di­tion to the D5600. It’s de­signed to make im­age shar­ing quicker and eas­ier than when us­ing a con­ven­tional Wi-Fi link that re­quires te­dious set­ting up and re­cur­rent pair­ing. Snap­Bridge em­ploys a Blue­tooth LE (Low En­ergy) chip that pro­vides a con­stant con­nec­tion with­out se­verely im­pact­ing bat­tery life, en­abling im­ages to au­to­mat­i­cally trans­fer from the D5600 to a smart de­vice so you can then share them to so­cial me­dia or cloud stor­age. The catch? In or­der to main­tain fast trans­fer speeds and keep the sys­tem sip­ping rather than gulp­ing power, im­ages are trans­ferred at a down­sized res­o­lu­tion. Full-res shots can be trans­ferred man­u­ally, al­beit via con­ven­tional Wi-Fi, and with in­creased power con­sump­tion. This ad­di­tional Wi-Fi con­nec­tion also en­ables re­mote con­trol of the D5600 over dis­tances of up to 10 me­tres us­ing a smart de­vice. You also get NFC pair­ing, so the Wi-Fi link can be es­tab­lished by tap­ping your smart­phone against the cam­era.
