  • Page 14: System

    The power to the KY-F75 can be supplied through the IEEE1394 connector of the computer. Caution When the KY-F75 is supplied with power though the IEEE1394 cable, make sure that the capacity on the supplying side is sufficient to meet the consumption by the KY-F75 (approximately 600 mA in the case of DC 12 V).
  • Page 15 When the motorized lens is used, the separately sold AC Adapter AA-P700 should be used to supply the power to the camera. Connect the [DC IN] connector on the KY-F75 to the AA-P700 using the DC power cable. Attach the clamp filter supplied with the KY-F75 to the DC power cable.

    Pin configurations of connectors ( When the shutter mode is other than “RANDOM” “EEI” ( In response to the trigger input, the KY-F75 outputs a flash signal for the CCD accumulation period of the next frame. The image shot at the moment that the FLASH signal is outputted is output as the next frame.
  • Page 48 5. Others (continued) Synchronizing flash and trigger (continued) When the shutter mode is “RANDOM” • CCD accumulation is performed in sync with the trigger input, and this period is output as the FLASH signal. • At the same shutter speeds the delay from the trigger input to the FLASH output is almost uniform as shown in Table A below.
  • Page 49: About Alc And Eei Operations

    About ALC and EEI operations ALC stands for Automatic Level Control and EEI for Extended Electronic Iris. ( By making the respective settings, the Automatic Level Control (ALC) will operate under dark lighting, and the electronic shutter (EEI) will operate under bright lighting. Furthermore, setting the IRIS mode to AUTO will synchronize sensitivity, iris and electronic shutter so that an appro- priate signal level can be acquired automatically at all times.
