Use one Battery Pack LP-E6N (or LP-E6) to power the transmitter... When replacing the transmitters battery, be sure to turn the transmitter off before opening the battery compartment cover... Also note that the transmitter is not sold with a battery or charger... If you do not own these accessories, they are available for purchase separately...

Page 12

When using a fully charged LP-E6N... When automatic transfer is performed during shooting of an image of approx... 5 MB under conditions based on the CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) test standards... Fewer images can be transferred when transferring images continuously over a wireless LAN...

Page 13

Do not connect or disconnect the power cord while the transmitters power switch is set to <ON>... Do not connect and use AC Adapter Kits ACK-E6 with both the camera and transmitter simultaneously... It may cause malfunction to the nearby electronic devices... For more information, contact a Canon Service Center...

Page 14

When connecting the transmitter to a camera equipped with a micro USB 3... 0 (Micro-B) terminal, use the cable protector provided with the camera... For the interface cable, use either IFC-40AB II or IFC-150AB II... Before disconnecting the cable, turn off both the transmitter and camera... If you turn on/off the transmitter or connect/disconnect the interface cable during Live View shooting or movie shooting, Live View shooting or movie shooting will stop... Using the USB 3... 0 cable will not result in faster transfer over wired or wireless LANs...

Page 15

Attach the cable protector to the camera and run the cable through the clamp... For cable protector instructions, refer to the camera instruction manual...

However, the distance supported for linked shooting may be shorter depending on the wireless communication conditions, which are affected by how the cameras are positioned, 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 73

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...
