Setting Up the Remote ViewFinder App for Your Samsung Camera on an Android Device

The Remote ViewFinder feature lets a smart phone (or tablet) see what the Samsung camera is focused on, and the camera can be used as a remote shutter release. The camera connects to the smart phone wirelessly. The Smart Camera App must be downloaded on the smart phone from the Google Play to use the Remote ViewFinder feature.

While using the Remote View Finder, some buttons may not work on the camera. When no operations are performed for 30 seconds, the camera screen turns off automatically.

To setup the Remote ViewFinder feature:

  1. Turn on the camera.   

  2. Turn the mode dial to Wi-Fi.

  3.  Select the Remote View Finder icon. If a message appears to download the app, select Next.   

  4. Using the smart phone, open the Samsung Smart Camera App. To start the app automatically on a NFC-enabled smart phone, turn on the NFC function and place the smart phone near the NFC tag of the camera.

  5. Select the camera from the list and connect the smart phone to the camera.   

  6. Using the camera, allow the smart phone to connect to the camera.

    After the first time, the camera and smart phone will connect automatically.
