connecting Nikon D500...

Hello all!

I bought 1 hour ago this great application to control my really good APN :D

But... but...

I red that SnapBridge (really poor soft :evil: ) must start WIFI: OK!
But once it's done, i launch QDSLR on my phone (One+One / Androidi 6):
_i tried the Wifi connection: 192.168.1.1 is proposed, and it's the godd IP for my APN.. but nothing happends...
_i tried the MOCO button: once on twice, i see my APJN, but when i click on, the window goes back on "SEARCH"...

I don't understand :roll:

I think it will be great to have a kind of "step by step" for this APN which seems to be a little bit hard to connect...

I'll be ready to make a little tutorial if i understand how to connect my phone and QDSLR...

Thanks!!

PS: sorry for my schoolish english ;)

" I red that SnapBridge (really poor soft :evil: ) must start WIFI: OK!

does that mean you've successfully used snapbridge to start wifi on the d500 and connected your phone to its network...
(the default SSID name is D500_XXXXXXX, where XXXXXXX is the 7-digit camera serial number)

if so, then you just use the standard nikon wireless connection button (to connect to 192.168.1.1)

Yes that's it : 'connecting 192.168.1. 1..
But that's all, nothing happens :roll:

Yes, when snapbridge is ok to connect (and this is not the case all times), dslr indicates 'connecting to' with the right ip.. But nothing more..

I'll be posting this a few places.

The D500 1.20 firmware allows the camera to start WiFi without SnapBridge. And then one can connect to it from qDslrDashboard. Bingo. I'll do more testing later, but for now it works :)
