The protocol Remote-A is unidirection (no feedback from camera) and limited. We try to display the most accurate values, but we receive no feedback from the camera so this is always an approximation. Ensure to precisely follow the camera setup guide below to ensure the best match between RCP values and camera values.

Camera configuration

You can find more information on the Canon camera manual and in the RCV-100 manual

You need to check (if you don't change it, it will probably work, but the values on the RCP and camera will not match):

    • Iris Increment set to 1/3 stop
    • Fine Increment set to on
