Automatic Image Transfer After Each Shot
To transfer smaller JPEGs when the camera is set up to record larger JPEGs to one card
and smaller JPEGs to the other, set [JPEG size to trans.] to [Smaller JPEG].
To transfer either RAW or JPEG images when the camera is set up to record RAW images
to one card and JPEGs to the other, specify which images to transfer in the [RAW+JPEG
transfer] setting. Similarly, complete the same setting when RAW+JPEG images are
recorded simultaneously to a single memory card.
When images of the same size are recorded to both cards simultaneously, images recorded
to card 1 are transferred, regardless of image quality (compression).
Auto Retry if Transfer Fails
If transfer fails, the <Y> lamp on the camera
blinks in red. In this case, press the <7> button,
select [Communication settings] on the [53] tab,
and press <0>. When the screen shown on the left
is displayed, check the error number and see page 98
to eliminate the cause of the error.
Once the cause of the error is eliminated, the images
whose transfer previously failed will be transferred automatically. With this option activated,
transfer is attempted again automatically after failure, whether when automatic transfer is used
or when transferring captured images via FTP. Note that when you cancel image transfer, or
turn off the camera, the image will not be re-transferred automatically. See page 36 and transfer
the image manually.

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.)
68
Arranging the Slave Cameras
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.
Linked shooting is not possible when master and slave cameras are set to [Mirror lockup]
[Enable] or [Enable:Mirror down w/ s].
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.

Wireless LAN Notes
When using the transmitter with a wireless LAN, try the following corrective actions if the
transmission rate drops, the connection is lost, or other problems occur.
Wireless LAN Terminal Installation and Antenna Position
When using the transmitter indoors, install the wireless LAN terminal in the same room
where you are shooting.
Install the wireless LAN terminal higher than the transmitter.
Install the device where people or objects do not come between it and the camera.
Install the device as close as possible to the camera. In particular, note that during
outdoor use in poor weather, rain may absorb radio waves and disrupt the connection.
Nearby Electronic Devices
If the transmission rate over a wireless LAN drops because of interference from the following
electronic devices, switching to a wired LAN can resolve the problem.
The transmitter communicates over wireless LANs via IEEE 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth
using radio waves in the 2.4 GHz band. For this reason, the wireless LAN transmission
rate may drop if there are nearby microwave ovens, cordless telephones, microphones,
or similar devices operating on the same frequency band.
Y
P
O
If a wireless LAN terminal on the same frequency band as the transmitter is used nearby,
the transmission rate of the wireless LAN may drop.
C
Using Multiple Transmitters
If multiple transmitters are connected to a single wireless LAN terminal, be careful not to
use duplicate camera IP addresses.
Note that the transmission rate drops when multiple transmitters access a single wireless
LAN terminal.
To reduce radio wave interference when there are multiple wireless IEEE 802.11b/g/n
devices on the 2.4 GHz band, leave a gap of four channels between each wireless LAN
channel. For example, use channels 1, 6, and 11, channels 2, 7, and 12, or channels 3, 8,
and 13.
When IEEE 802.11a/n can be used (on the 5 GHz band), switch to IEEE 802.11a/n (on
the 5 GHz band) and specify a different channel.
Security
Wireless LAN radio waves can be easily intercepted. For this reason, we recommend
activating encrypted communication in the wireless LAN terminal settings.
