Directory structure of the target folder

Configured in [FTP server] → [Directory structure].

With [Default], the root folder is used 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.

Selecting [Camera] automatically creates a folder structure matching that of the camera's (such as A/DCIM/100EOSR3) in the server's 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/100EOSR3 is automatically created in that folder for image storage.

Overwriting files of the same name

Configured in [FTP server] → [Overwrite same file].

With [Overwrite same file] set to [Disable]

If there is already a file with the same name in the target folder on the FTP server, the new file is saved with an extension consisting of an underscore and a number, as in IMG_0003_1.JPG.

When you resend images if initial transfer fails

Even if the camera 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 numeral, as in IMG_0003_a1.JPG.

Passive mode

Configured in [FTP server] → [Passive mode].

Enable this setting in network environments protected by a firewall. If an Error 41 occurs (Cannot connect to FTP server), setting passive mode to [Enable] may enable access to the FTP server.

Trusting target servers

Configured in [FTP server] → [Trust target server].

Set to [Enable] if you prefer to connect to FTP servers even when trust cannot be established based on the root certificate used. In this case, take suitable security measures.

Specifying Connection Options

You can configure settings used for FTP transfer and Browser Remote. Settings are also available for authentication information used in LAN environments with 802.1X authentication.

The connection is re-established automatically when the camera is ready for image transfer again. If you prefer not to disconnect from the LAN, set to [Disable].

Browser Remote settings

Selecting [Browser Remote settings] enables you to set the account used for Browser Remote access and configure HTTP/HTTPS communication settings.

  • Port no. (HTTP)/Port no. (HTTPS)

    • You can change the port number used for HTTP/HTTPS communication. There is normally no need to change the port number (80 for HTTP, 443 for HTTPS).
