On a Nikon D3500 is it possible, on Snapbridge, to see the what the camera lens sees before the picture is taken? If so how?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Do you mean if you can activate a Live View inside Snapbridge so you see a live image through your lense? \$\endgroup\$

Probably not, unless Nikon has changed the way they do the D3x00 series. We've got a number of related questions that all deal with the D3x00 series of cameras not having the ability to do tethered shooting. Even Nikon cameras that are capable of tethered shooting don't give real time Live Views off camera with the major tethering software applications. There are some other apps that claim they can do it with upper tier Nikon cameras, such as the D7x00 series or the three digit (D850, D300, etc.) and single digit (D5, D4,etc.) models.
