Question :
I would like to watch video files on a smartphone. Can I transfer video files to a smartphone using the OI.Share?

Answer :
Yes, you can transfer MOV format video files to your smartphone.

  • AVI format video files cannot be transferred to smartphones. (AVI files are not displayed on the OI.Share.)
    In some cameras, the time lapse and high-speed videos are recorded in AVI format.

  • In Android, the application to play video files should support the MOV movie file format.

Answer :
RAW data (file extension .orf), which can be taken with DSLR cameras or some compact cameras, are not displayed on the list of images in the Import Photos menu of OI.Share.

If the camera is equipped with the RAW Data Edit function, convert the RAW files to a smartphone readable JPEG file using this function.

Question :
I scanned the QR code that is displayed on the monitor of the camera using the Easy Setup, but couldn't obtain a Wi-Fi connection. What should I do?

Answer :
If the Wi-Fi connection does not work after scanning the QR code on the camera monitor with a Smartphone using the OI.Share Easy Setup, confirm the Wi-Fi setting on your Smartphone.

Your Smartphone may already be connected to a different Wi-Fi network (e.g. home LAN ) or Wi-Fi device. In the Wi-Fi setting of your Smartphone, switch the network connection to the SSID (network name) that begins with the model name of your camer

When the network connection is completed, you will see a check mark before the SSID in iOS or, in Android OS, you will see "Connected" below the SSID.


Note:
  • Easy Setup is not available on some camera models.
  • For more information on how to set the Wi-Fi setting, refer to the Smartphone instruction manual.

Question :
I am using OI.Share, but the QR code reading display in Easy Setup is not displayed. What should I do?

Answer :
When your Smartphone or tablet computer (hereafter Smartphone) is not equipped with a back camera, the QR code reading display of the Easy Setup is not displayed on the OI.Share.

In this case, connect the Smartphone with your camera in Wi-Fi setting using the SSID and the password information. You can find the information near the QR code that is displayed on the monitor of the camera.




How to set Wi-Fi connection when the QR code reading display is not available:

  1. Tap Connection Guide. In Wi-Fi Setup, tap Wi-Fi Setting.
  2. A list of Wi-Fi network is displayed.
    Make sure that the Wi-Fi is ON and tap the SSID (network name) with the same name as the one displayed on the camera monitor. Enter the password to the Password field and tap Connect.
    The Wi-Fi setting is completed when Connected is displayed under the SSID.
    Try to transfer images to the OI.Share from Import Photos.
Note:
  • Easy Setup is not available on some camera models.
  • Refer to the instruction manual of your Smartphone for detailed information on the Wi-Fi connection setting.
