Your camera may also require a minor set up process prior to using the Promote Control. We recommend the following camera settings to get the most out of your Promote Control:
1.Set your camera to Manual Exposure mode unless recommended otherwise.
2.Set your camera to Manual Focus mode unless recommended otherwise.
3.Set 1/3EV shutter speed steps in your camera setup menu. This is normally a default setting for your camera.
4.It is recommended to also set 1/3EV ISO steps in your camera setup menu, if available. This is normally a default setting for your camera.
5.Set your camera to Single drive mode. Operating your camera in Continuous drive mode with Promote Control may lead to unexpected results, such as extra pictures being taken. Alternatively, you can use Quiet or Silent drive mode, if available on your camera. With Quiet or Silent drive mode the frame rate may be slower, but shutter will generally sound more quiet and soft, which may be preferable in certain situations.
6.If you use Bulb Ramping or Bulb HDR mode, set your camera flash synchronization mode to default setting. Any other setting, such as "rear curtain" sync, will interfere with the Bulb Ramping and Bulb HDR mode.
Should you have any problems when using Promote Control with your camera, resetting your camera to the default settings may help. Please consult your camera user manual for details on how to reset camera settings.
