Basic Linked Shooting

68

Arrange the slave cameras in clear view of the master camera, without objects between them. You can arrange master camera in an overall circumference of up to approximately 100 m / 328 ft. However, the distance supported for linked shooting may be shorter depending on the wireless communication conditions, which are affected by how the cameras are arranged, the environment of use, and weather conditions. Pressing the shutter button halfway on the master camera puts slave cameras in the same state, as if the shutter buttons were pressed halfway. Similarly, fully pressing the shutter button on the master camera has the same effect on slave cameras, which respond as if the shutter buttons were fully pressed. There will be a slight delay after you release the master camera shutter until the slave camera shutters are released. (Simultaneous capture is not possible.)

Arranging the Slave Cameras Slave camera

Slave cameraSlave camera

Arranging the Slave Cameras

Do not use multiple flash units. Although slight, there is a difference in the shutter release timing which may cause out-of-sync flash firing and inadequate exposure. Linked shooting is not possible when master and slave cameras are set to [Mirror lockup] [Enable] or [Enable:Mirror down w/ s].

During linked shooting, when you press the AE lock or depth-of-field preview button, the camera adjusts the focus and meters as if you had pressed the shutter button halfway. Once you have established a connection between the master camera and slave cameras, the settings are retained even after you replace the batteries. If you will no longer use a slave camera in linked shooting, set [Communication mode] to [Disconnect] on that slave camera. Any cameras compatible with linked shooting, when they have WFT series transmitters attached, can be used as slave cameras, regardless of model.

70

Using WFT Server, you can shoot remotely with a master camera linked to slave cameras that will shoot at the same time. WFT Server can also be used to access master or slave cameras for Live View display, and you can adjust the focus and configure remote capture settings as needed.

When using the transmitter with a wireless LAN, try the following corrective actions if the transmission rate drops, the connection is lost, or other problems occur.

When using the transmitter indoors, install the wireless LAN terminal in the same room where you are shooting. Install the wireless LAN terminal higher than the transmitter. Install the device where people or objects do not come between it and the camera. Install the device as close as possible to the camera. In particular, note that during outdoor use in poor weather, rain may absorb radio waves and disrupt the connection.

If the transmission rate over a wireless LAN drops because of interference from the following electronic devices, switching to a wired LAN can resolve the problem.

The transmitter communicates over wireless LANs via IEEE 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth using radio waves in the 2.4 GHz band. For this reason, the wireless LAN transmission rate may drop if there are nearby microwave ovens, cordless telephones, microphones, or similar devices operating on the same frequency band. If a wireless LAN terminal on the same frequency band as the transmitter is used nearby, the transmission rate of the wireless LAN may drop.

If multiple transmitters are connected to a single wireless LAN terminal, be careful not to use duplicate camera IP addresses. Note that the transmission rate drops when multiple transmitters access a single wireless LAN terminal. To reduce radio wave interference when there are multiple wireless IEEE 802.11b/g/n devices on the 2.4 GHz band, leave a gap of four channels between each wireless LAN channel. For example, use channels 1, 6, and 11, channels 2, 7, and 12, or channels 3, 8, and 13. When IEEE 802.11a/n can be used (on the 5 GHz band), switch to IEEE 802.11a/n (on the 5 GHz band) and specify a different channel.
