I have issues transferring video on z50 to iPad-iPhone with SnapBridge you have to wait for the transfer and finally SnapBridge say : camera not found

If this worked OK for you before, this may not be relevant.
But do you know about changing the timeout settings on your camera?

Does this help?

Thank you Paco and Colin for your reply
I have no issues connecting Z50 and download photos, this is only happen to videos-even small mp4
Any way I increased the cameras timeout to even 5min and I unchecked  the power save mode but no luck
I’m gonna find other way to transfer as I wand to see my videos-photos on my IPad for reference 8)

A new firmware update for the Z cameras.

Z7 - 3.10 to 3.11

• Fixed an issue that occurred when the camera was used with an MB-N10 battery pack with two batteries installed and an EN-EL15 or EN-EL15a in Chamber A, namely that the camera would sometimes fail to switch to the battery in Chamber B when the battery in Chamber A was exhausted

Firmware 3.11 is acknowledged by Nikon themselves to contain at least one potentially serious bug (AF fine tune functionality). Thus I for one will ignore this update.

just got a Z7. Only have F mount lenses.
The FTZ adapter? is it recommended to use the tripod mount in the adapter? Or doe sit really not matter? because there is no reasonably priced L  mount for it that is not totally huge and cumbersome. But lots of sleek L brackets for the camera body itself.

Some F lenses balance better if the FTZ is the mounting point for a tripod support.

I do keep a dedicated FTZ with its own L-bracket for close-up and macro work, whilst the other 3 are used without.

Regarding my post- question 1336:
It happen to set up from scratch my Iphone and now surprisely I can download Video files too!
So the issue was  not in Snapbridge :)
thank you

Flash

I have periodically gotten into flash usage, I have a couple SB-600s, one SB-700, a variety of Yongnuo doo dads (triggers). For the Z6, what is the simplest setup? I think I have YN-622N as a controller and then a little dongle one that sits under the flash.

This is a January project (as I don't have my gear with me), but is there anything with the Z6 that I will find different or unique wrt to flash?

Thanks,
Rob.
