Please refer to the camera’s instruction manual for details on the appropriate connection method. For example, the Sony ILCE-7M2 (Alpha a7 II) has four menu options for USB connection (Auto (default), Mass Storage, MTP, and PC Remote). In this instance, the camera should be set to PC Remote. When the connection is established, all the camera settings that are selected in Capture One are transferred to the camera and the same settings made directly on the camera are transferred to Capture One. Therefore, you can choose between operating the camera remotely or normally with the software running in the background.
- Connect a supported camera to your computer via a FireWire or a USB cable. When successfully connected, the Camera Settings and the Camera tool are populated with the settings data from the camera.
- When a camera or a digital back is disconnected, do not reconnect it until the Camera tool status changes to No Camera Attached.
