Configuring settings on the camera

Prepare the camera before mounting it on the gimbal. (Both the camera and gimbal are sold separately.)

The following is a sample procedure using an ILCE-7SM3 camera.

  1. Open the battery cover and insert a battery pack.

  2. Open the memory card cover and insert a memory card.

  3. Configure the following setting items on the camera.

    For setting instructions, refer to the camera operating instructions or online Help Guide (Web manual).

Note

  • During flights, cameras consume battery power as you shoot. Always charge the camera battery sufficiently before mounting on the gimbal.
  • Use memory cards with sufficient free space for recording images.
  • Be sure to set the Bluetooth function of the camera to [Off]. If it is set to [On], it may affect the wireless transmission function.
