NX MobileAir

Fast. Reliable.
Mobile uploads.

Go from shooting to delivery in no time.

Nikon’s NX MobileAir is an Android and iOS® app that lets you tether a compatible Nikon camera to a smartphone for in-the-moment FTP uploads over a 4G or 5G cellular connection. Easily manage your FTP server info, make simple photo edits, enter IPTC data and even add voice memos. Whether you’re at a packed venue, away from a Wi-Fi® connection or just traveling light, you can still hit the deadline. Available as a free app with an optional subscription.

Efficient. Convenient.

Increase your productivity and your ability to deliver amazing images on time. With NX MobileAir, there’s no computer required, no need for a separate wireless transmitter, and images can be automatically uploaded without ever touching your smartphone.

Smarter, connected workflow.

Add IPTC data with voice-to-text input.

Use your smartphone’s voice-to-text feature to quickly populate IPTC fields on the go. Add to individual images or entire albums.

Include voice memos.

Record short voice memos to include with your images. Tell your editor or production team what they need to know about your shots.

Crop and straighten images.

Easily review your images, check focus and crop, flip or straighten as needed, right from the app.

Easy browsing and selection.

Quickly scroll through thumbnails, review voice memos and make selections for uploading or deleting.

Upload automatically, individually or as a batch.

Set the app to automatically upload every shot to your FTP server, or manually select images to upload individually or as a batch.

Find images faster.

NX MobileAir uses deep-learning technology to analyze your images1, so you can filter thumbnails by elements detected within your shots, like number of people, as well as by EXIF data, date, retouch, voice memo and more.

Transfer RAW (NEF) images.

Transfer your RAW (NEF) images2 while in the field. For faster uploads, you can also select your desired file size and image size for JPGs.

Control when images get imported.

To keep your workflow streamlined, you can choose when your images get transferred from the camera to the app—while shooting or while both are connected3.
