Multi Camera Mode :

Turning on the controller and the two cameras causes the controller to connect with Camera 1 (main camera) first.
At this time, "Camera Add icon" will appear on the display.
Touch "Camera Add icon" to start the connection operation with Camera 2.
The controller will be able to control both cameras after connection with the second camera is established.
The first that connects with the controller is Camera 1 (main camera), while the second one is Camera 2.

Multi Image Screen :
This view simultaneously shows the record or playback images of both cameras side by side.
The Camera 1 image is on the left, while the Camera 2 image is on the right.
