Overview

When installed on a smart device (smartphone or tablet), the NX MobileAir app can be used to download pictures from a camera connected via USB. The pictures can then be uploaded wirelessly to an FTP server. Use NX MobileAir to simplify such tasks as uploading and managing pictures.

What NX MobileAir Can Do for You

Use NX MobileAir for:

Picture Import and Management

Pictures taken with the camera can be imported to albums in NX MobileAir, where they can (among other things) be viewed, annotated with IPTC data, retouched, and selected for upload to an FTP server.

Auto FTP Upload

After adjusting settings in NX MobileAir, you can set your smart device aside, pick up your camera, and start taking pictures, secure in the knowledge that they will be uploaded to the FTP server automatically. The app will even add IPTC data and straighten pictures automatically before upload.

Manage Camera Menu Settings (Available Only with Z 9 “C” Firmware Version 4.00 or Later)

Settings saved using [Save/load menu settings] in the camera setup menu can be imported to NX MobileAir. Once imported, settings can be exported to other smart devices or cameras.
