I may be doing something wrong, but I can’t figure it out.

On D7200, while shooting in RAW, I can review photos, and tag them to send to mobile (iPhone X). Load SnapBridge and images transfer to phone in JPG format without issue.

When attempting the same process with my D500, it seems I have to manually process the RAW file to JPG before I can transfer to mobile. I currently save RAW to XQD, and JPG to SD card.

Is there a simpler method of moving photos from camera to mobile? If I already have JPG on the SD card, why can’t I transfer that file and skip having to do the manual RAW to JPG process!?

Thanks in advance!


I shoot RAW+JPEG. Snapbridge automatically transfers small previews of all photos to my mobile. Then I can select on my mobile the photos that I'd like to transfer; either in full JPEG resolution or with reduced size.
