This is something that bugs the crap out of me, too. Ever since Nikon’s SnapBridge protocol got out into the wild last, it’s been criticised. To the point of one German customer taking Nikon to court over false advertising claims. It’s certainly not been the breeze Nikon led us to believe.
Now, one guy’s had enough. And that guy is Gunther Wegner, author of the very popular LRTimelapse app. Gunther has been working with and teaching timelapse for many years. Nikon have been the leading DSLR for many timelapse shooters. So when Nikon started advertising that the Nikon D850 was particularly suited to shooting 8K timelapse, he called them out in an open letter.
