General Tips

  • If possible, start with a blank memory card in your camera. This will improve the Arsenal 2 app's initial performance.

  • Fully charge your camera's battery. (Some cameras disable their USB port when the battery is low.)

Once you have configured your Canon camera and updated your Arsenal 2, you can open the app and click Connect. Now you're ready to start shooting with Arsenal 2!
