The NX Field system consists of the dedicated camera firmware, which can be installed for a fee, as well as the NX Field app which can be downloaded to a compatible device/tablet.

When connecting multiple compatible Nikon cameras, the camera set as the master camera can simultaneously control the shutter release on up to ten remote cameras. The cameras can be connected via a wired LAN cable or wireless LAN.

Further, with the additional use of the NX Field app for smart devices, the shutter release on remote cameras connected via a wired LAN cable or wireless LAN can be controlled from the smartphone or tablet to which it is installed. The app can also be used to easily perform a number of tasks remotely, including checking the Live View through the lens, changing or confirming camera settings, and uploading images captured with the cameras. The user interface that pursues flexibility and usability streamlines the on-site workflow. The NX Field system supports remote shooting via the 5G high-speed communications standard or the internet 4, which, for example, can enable the remote operation of cameras positioned in Tokyo from an operator in New York.

What’s more, the system enables the immediate and automatic upload of images captured with the master and remote cameras to an FTP server. When a wired LAN cable connection is used, the system is extremely stable and is not easily affected by external factors such as a lack of sufficient Wi-Fi signal or high Wi-Fi traffic.

By enabling the remote cameras to be positioned in places that people cannot easily access, such as at the finish line of a race, near a stadium ceiling, or in situations where the number of photographers allowed on site are restricted, NX Field supports the confident capture of decisive moments. The system achieves immediacy in workflow with images captured from previously difficult perspectives and angles for greater diversity.

Nikon will continually update NX Field and support professional photographers’ active on the frontlines of the reportage of decisive moments.
