Upload to FTP Servers or Computers
Not only can you copy pictures to computers, you can also upload them to ftp servers ( Upload to Computers and FTP Servers ). Pictures can be uploaded as they are taken.
Computer-Based Remote Photography (Camera Control Mode)
Installing Camera Control Pro 2 (available separately) on a network computer gives you complete control over camera settings and lets you take pictures remotely and save them directly to the computer hard disk ( Camera Control ).
Browser-Based Remote Photography (HTTP Server Mode)
Use a web browser to control the camera from network computers and smart devices ( HTTP Server ). No dedicated app is required.
Camera-Based Remote Photography (Synchronized Release)
A master camera can be used to control the shutters on one or more remote cameras ( Synchronized Release ). The cameras must have WT-6 wireless transmitters attached.
Clock Synchronization (Synchronize Date and Time)
Synchronize the clocks on two cameras via a network ( Synchronizing Camera Clocks ).
Wireless LAN settings are not required when the camera is connected to a network via an Ethernet cable.
