Notes on the Wireless Twin Camera function

The performance of the Wireless Twin Camera function varies depending on the surrounding radio wave conditions.

Since the human body blocks radio waves, it is also influenced by how crowded the area is.

Recording tips

  • Use your Wireless Sub Camera in a position where as much of it as possible can be seen from the position of this unit.
  • When the signal between this unit and the Wireless Sub Camera weakens, a warning icon appears. In such a case, close the distance between them.
  • We recommend that you attach a tripod to this unit when recording.
  • We recommend that you look at the image transmitted from your smartphone in advance to check the optimal recording distance for the smartphone, the easiest way to hold it, and other recording conditions.

Notice

  • The Sub Window’s image, which is transmitted from the smartphone, is displayed with a slight delay compared to the Main camera’s image.
  • Depending on the device and environment, movement in the image transmitted from the smartphone may not look smooth or may look as if frames were missed.
  • When using a smartphone as a Sub Camera, refer to the Operation Instructions for your Main Camera.
  • If you cannot connect to a Wi-Fi network, or if you want to learn more about the Wi-Fi function, please also refer to the Operating Instructions for your Main Camera.
