Mounting the SR-R4
Always turn off the camera power supply when mounting the SR-R4.
The recorder connector for connecting the SR-R4 is an optical connector. Attach the connector cap on the optical connector when not connected to an SR-R4 to protect the connector. After removing the cap, store it in the position shown in the following figure for safekeeping.
When mounting the SR-R4, fix the camera head on a tripod in advance to keep the camera head stable.
When the camera is used with the SR-R4 docked, make sure that the camera is securely fixed and stable so that it will not fall over.
Attaching a Filter
1. Place the filter template (metallic disc) on the gel filter, then trim the filter around the edge of the filter template.
2. Remove the ring from the filter holder, place the filter on the ring, and then attach the holder.
3. Align the protrusion on the mounting tool with the notch on the filter holder, then insert the holder into the tool.
4. Align the notch on the filter mount with the protrusion on the filter holder, insert the mounting tool onto the filter mount, and then turn clockwise until it clicks into place.
5. Pull the mounting tool straight off. The mounting tool separates from the camera, and the filter is mounted in place.
To remove the filter
1. Align the protrusion on the mounting tool with the notch on the filter holder, then press the tool onto the filter mount. Press the tool until it clicks into place.
2. Rotate the mounting tool counterclockwise, then lift the tool off the camera.
The filter holder is removed with the mounting tool.
