    What research have you done so far? Did you at least read the manual? nikon.co.uk/en_GB/learn-and-explore/photography-articles.tag/… – Tetsujin Jul 9 '19 at 18:15

    @rds If you want help here, you need to let us know what you've already tried and what the results were. Your question reads like you haven't done anything yourself to attempt to solve your problem. If you've already looked at the manual and the manual only includes instructions on how to connect and transfer to an Android smartphone, then please state that in the question. – Michael C Jul 9 '19 at 21:24

    -1 for the lack of research effort. As a species, we grow by "standing on the shoulders of giants." In other words, we capitalize on the past in order to take the next step. Why would I want to redo any research that you've already done? Why not help me, to help you? Will gladly change that -1 to +1 when you edit this to give detail into what you've found, or haven't. – OnBreak. Jul 9 '19 at 22:12

    frankly scarlet, I could care less about your minus. The initial reply seemed very attacking to me. Nowhere on this site does it mention "research' nor reading the manual. Note that the reply was apparently not researched or the poster would not have sent me to an article that doesn't concern me. Now how does that help me? In addition I am not asking anyone to do research for me. This site states "ask a question, get an answer" – rds Jul 9 '19 at 22:47

    Hover your mouse over the arrows to get the site's descriptor for it. Not everyone comments when they downvote but I'm of the opinion that one should explain their downvote instead of leaving the issue unknown to the asker. Here's the site's help page for how to ask a question: photo.stackexchange.com/help/how-to-ask -- it mentions research as its first point actually. – OnBreak. Jul 9 '19 at 22:52

You can't directly. The P1000 uses Nikon's Snapbridge app (which is mobile-only) to configure wifi settings via Bluetooth, in order to transfer photos and control the camera via the mobile device only.

Using Snapbridge, the only hope of transferring files wirelessly to a PC is by using an Android device, and somehow using the device as a wireless bridge between the camera and PC. I have no idea if Android devices support this capability (whether any do, or just some), but I doubt it is supported out-of-the-box. I know certainly that Apple iOS devices do not support this functionality.

  • thank you scottbb, seems as tho Nikon has slipped backwards with this camera... – rds Jul 13 '19 at 21:36
  • @rds it's not just this particular camera. Most of their Snapbridge-enabled cameras are this way. Not that I agree with their direction, but I assume it's because typical WiFi setup on cameras is so painful. Cameras don't have good interfaces to select arbitrary networks. It's been my experience that most cameras require the phone or PC to connect to the camera's network. Sucks from a user standpoint, but is understandable from the standpoint of the camera developers — fewer network types and security profiles (if any) to deal with. – scottbb Jul 13 '19 at 21:49
  • thank you, I'm remembering p610 which I had a couple years ago and it worked nicely transferring direct to the pc! – rds Jul 14 '19 at 22:45
