Import MAC Address

The Import MAC Address function of the Transfer & Tagging is useful when you need to supply the MAC address of the camera you are using to a third party, such as the sponsor when taking photos at a large-scale event, or the like. You can display a QR code of the MAC address on the camera and then scan it into the Transfer & Tagging.
Refer to <Import MAC Address> for supported cameras and instructions for using the function.
