Please note to use this app your camera needs to have Wi-Fi capability or that the camera is accessible on a TCP/IP network. And the camera supports PTP/IP over its network connection.

Setup with cameras that have Wi-Fi hosting capability: - Enable build-in Wi-Fi from your camera's configuration menu. If the camera is using a Wi-Fi adapter such as the WU-1a/1b, please follow the adapter's user instruction to setup the network. - Search for the camera's Wi-Fi access point from your Windows device's Wi-Fi settings. - From your Windows device, join the Wi-Fi network hosting by your camera - Launch the app, and configure it to connection to the correct IP address and port. (default settings should work for Nikon cameras and a few others) - Tap 'connect' to establish PTP/IP connection to your camera Setup with cameras that connects to an existing network: - Turn on camera's Wi-Fi networking and specify an existing wireless access point to connect to.
