Positioning the Cameras
- Set the camera's Live View shooting/Movie shooting switch to .
- Position the receiver cameras in clear view of the sender camera, without objects between them.
- Receiver cameras can be positioned up to approx. 50 m / 164 ft. from the sender camera. 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 usage environment, and weather conditions.
- Pressing the shutter button halfway on the sender camera will also put the receiver cameras in a state corresponding to when their shutter buttons are pressed halfway. Similarly, fully pressing the shutter button on the sender camera will also put the receiver cameras in a state corresponding to when their shutter buttons are fully pressed.
- There will be a slight delay in the shutter release timing between the sender and receiver cameras. (Simultaneous shooting is not possible.)
- 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.
- 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 sender camera and receiver cameras, the settings are retained even after you replace the batteries.
- If you will no longer use a receiver camera in linked shooting, go to [Connection settings] and set [LinkedShot] to [Disconnect].
