Camera Configuration

The camera by default is on DHCP. You can either use that IP (which is potentially changing). Or you can setup a static IP:

  • Connect to your camera DHCP address (can be found by scanning network or in your internet router)
  • If this is the first setup, you will be asked to setup a user/login:
  • And then setup the Network, change:
    • IPv4 Address Settings Method to Manual
    • IPv4 address to the desired camera IP: 10.192.100.100 for example
    • Subnet Mask to the desired camera mask: 255.255.0.0 for example
  • After that the camera will reboot and be controllable

  • Ensure to setup Shooting Mode to M and that all Auto modes are disabled (optional):

If your camera IP is not in the range 10.192.0.0/16, you can follow this guide

note

If you have anything in the camera web interface setup in Auto (AWB, Auto Iris, etc.), the RCP will be unable to control it. Ensure to setup the desired parameters to Manual to be controlled by the RCP.
