Nikon Camera Set Up

  • Please make sure your camera is set to A (aperture priority)

  • 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.)

  • Set your camera to save in RAW or RAW+JPEG formats. Saving TIFFs is not supported.

  • EV is set to "0" prior to connecting

  • Make sure the Live View selector switch is set to stills and not video.

  • Set your aspect ratio for your image quality to 3:2

Please check to make sure your "silent live view photography" is set to off.

Troubleshooting Tips

Trouble running an Exposure Bracket?

Please make sure your camera's EV step is set to 1/3 or 0.3 EV.

Shutterspeed does not appear to be adjusting above 1/30?

Set “Manual Movie Settings” to OFF. This is usually found in the camera's “Shooting Menu”. If it is set to ON, Arsenal 2 can only access shutter speeds between 1/8000 and 1/30.

Seeing an error to move the dial on your camera to "M" but already in Manual Mode?

Move the camera dial to M, disable liveview in the app, wait until the mirror drops and then re-enable liveview.
