    Nikon Camera P1000 Bluetooth and Wifi Connections


    MY bluetooth is telling me on my pc that there is nothing associated with Bluetooth and I need to associate a file or something. I wish to connect my new camera but if BT is non functioning, I am stuck.

    That's talking about a file not by have you paired with BT first? Can't you use USB?

    Have you looked in Device Management for a Bluetooth entry and is it Enabled? Usually BT is part of the Wireless Adapter which should show in the Network section. Most Notebooks have it now but usually an option on Desktops. For those machines that don't have BT I use an IOGEAR USB dongle to get it, not expensive at less than 20USD and usually installs just by plugging it in.

    The entry in your My Computer shows the Wireless adapter but doesn't indicate BT although the speakers appear to support BT connection.

    What specifically are you trying to do? And based on the Device Manager image, there seems to be no issue with your Bluetooth.

    BTW I use SnapBridge with my Nikon D850 and as far as I know, it's not a "Windows" based app, but either Android or IOS... Nikon SnapBridge. I'm currently using it on my Android device. BTW, I tried paring it to a PC and yeah, it's not supported on Windows.

    yes, I said that about snapbridge. Its not a win based app, so I was looking at BT, but got that error message. Thats the problem.

    Both the P1000 and my D850 are said to support both BT and Wi-Fi, but the caveat is you'd need use SnapBridge. For the D850 you can buy the WT-7 wireless transmitter (@ $935) to connect to a PC.

    Outside of that pairing is done via SnapBridge, and ONLY to an Android/IOS device.... Bluetooth Pairing. Also...Nikon P1000 wireless upload to PC

    Yeah, BT/Wi-Fi capability is somewhat misleading by Nikon. Botton line is if you're camera requires SnapBridge, that's the BT/Wi-Fi connection the camera supports.... i.e. you can't connect to a PC via BT/Wi-Fi

    All that said, you might see what your owner's manual says about this BT/Wi-Fi connections.

    thanks Sygnus. I have been using the charge/usb cable to connect and checking images, so I think we are set. Thanks again. The connection to my samsung s8 was very straight forward and when I took an image it was in my phone too, almost instant.

    Thanks. And yeah, it would be nice to connect to directly to Windows via BT/Wi-Fi like you can on an Android/IOS device with SnapBridge. Instead Nikon wants you to buy extra adapters at an absurd price

    Anyway, I used SnapBridge to take and store photos on my android device, but I found it clunky and it doesn't allow you to download RAW files. Also the downloads are limited to a max 2meg jpeg file.

    I do like the fact that I can use my smartphone as a screen viewer to focus on and take a photo. Helps when the camera is either too high or too low to adequately view the screen on the back of the camera.

    Anyway glad I was able to help. And thanks
