The transmitter is a precision instrument... Do not drop it or subject it to shock... The transmitter is not waterproof... Do not use it underwater... Wipe off any moisture with a clean, dry cloth... If the transmitter has been exposed to salty air, wipe it with a clean damp cloth after wringing it out to remove excess water... Never leave the transmitter near any equipment that generates a strong magnetic field, such as magnets or electric motors... Do not leave the transmitter in excessive heat, such as in a vehicle in direct sunlight... High temperature may damage the transmitter... Do not wipe the transmitter using cleaners containing organic solvents... If the transmitter becomes difficult to clean, take it to the nearest Canon Service Center... To avoid corrosion, do not store the transmitter where there are strong chemicals, such as in darkrooms or chemical labs...

Date information shown for memory cards or folders may be the current date set on the camera, in some cases...

Page 65

With linked shooting, up to 10 slave cameras can be linked in a wireless network (via IEEE 802... 11g in ad hoc mode) to the master camera on which you will release the shutter... Any cameras compatible with linked shooting, when they have WFT series transmitters attached, can be used as slave cameras, regardless of model...

Page 66

After setting up the slave cameras as described on this page, follow the steps on the next page for basic linked shooting... For instructions to view or download to your computer the images stored on cameras, refer to page 70...

Page 67

Page 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... )

Page 69

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...

Page 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... Additionally, images on camera memory cards can be viewed and downloaded... Wireless LAN functions and OS of the computer must support ad-hoc mode...

Configured in [FTP server] [Directory structure]... Selecting [Camera] automatically creates a folder structure matching that of the cameras (such as A/DCIM/100EOS1D) in the servers root folder for image storage... If you have created a subfolder in the root folder by changing the [Target folder] setting, a folder structure such as A/ DCIM/100EOS1D is automatically created in that folder for image storage... Selecting [Default] will use the root folder for image storage... If you have created a subfolder in the root folder by changing the [Target folder] setting, images are saved in that folder...

Page 84

When you resend images if initial transfer fails Even if the transmitter is configured to overwrite files of the same name, if you resend an image file that could not be transferred initially, the existing file may not be overwritten in some cases... If this happens, the new file is saved with an extension consisting of an underscore, a letter, and a number, as in IMG_0003_a1... JPG...
