Pairing the Camera with a Computer

If Image transfer or Camera control is selected in network profiles created with the camera, you will need to pair the camera with the computer (the steps involved vary with the camera model). This allows a connection to be established between the camera and the computer.

Copying Wireless LAN Profiles to a Computer

Wireless LAN profiles created on the camera can be copied to a computer. You may find this useful when creating new wireless networks for wireless transmitters. Note that if the computer is already connected to a network, the profile copied to the computer will overwrite the computer’s existing network settings.

When the Wireless Transmitter Utility is installed, the Wireless Transmitter Utility icon in the menu bar can be used to end the connection to the camera or launch the Wireless Transmitter Utility.

The following are available only when Image transfer is selected as the operation mode:

  • Connect to Camera: If this option is selected, the computer will automatically establish a connection when it detects the camera on the network.
  • Do Not Connect to Camera: If this option is selected, the computer will end any current connections to the camera and will not establish a new connection when it detects the camera on the network.
