About image transfer

You can select and transfer the necessary images shot using the camera to a registered FTP server, and automatically transfer images to a registered FTP server while recording. The communication method (Wired LAN/Wi-Fi) and the destination server can each be specified separately, so settings can be quickly changed according to the network environment and other factors during recording and transfer.

Some functions are not available depending on the camera unit software version. Update the camera unit software to the latest version before use.

Types of transfer that can be executed by this camera

Batch Transfer and One Image Transfer target the slot set by [Select PB Media]. Auto Transfer targets the slot set by [Prioritize Rec. Media].

Batch Transfer:
You can narrow down the transfer target, such as protected images or non-transferred images, and transfer the applicable images together as a batch.
Auto Transfer:
You can transfer all images automatically while recording.
One Image Transfer:
You can transfer only the image being played back.


What you can do during transfer operations

  • You can record and play back still images even during transfer operations.
  • If you press the shutter button halfway while the transfer underway screen is displayed, the display will change to the recording screen.
  • If you select [OK] on the transfer underway screen, the playback screen will appear.
  • You can select [FTP Transfer Func.] from the MENU or press the custom key to which the [FTP Transfer] function is assigned during the transfer to return from the recording or playback screen to the transfer underway screen.

To cancel FTP transfer

Select [Cancel Transfer] on the transfer underway screen.

Note

  • Basic knowledge of FTP servers is required to use the FTP transfer function.
  • The explanations in this manual are based on the assumption that your network or FTP server environment is ready to use. For information on how to prepare the network environment, check with the manufacturer of each device.
  • You can only transfer still images recorded by the camera using FTP.
  • Do not remove the memory card from the camera during transfer operations.
  • Images cannot be transferred if the write protect switch or erase protect switch of the media is set to “LOCK.”
  • If the camera has two memory card slots and the memory card containing images scheduled for transfer is removed from the camera, that scheduled image transfer will be canceled.
  • If the power is turned off during image transfer, transfer of the image currently being transferred (and images scheduled for transfer in case of Batch Transfer) will fail.
  • If you start to record a movie during image transfer, the transfer will be paused. The transfer will resume when movie recording ends.
  • When the [Connection Error] screen appears, the network connection has been lost. Check the connection status with the access point.
