    Hi Guys, I'll shoot some time-lapse with a 4 Dragon VR rig seven days later.
    Now I have a problem that I can't control the 4 camera at the same time.
    I find the camera setup in the DSMC Opration Guide, it says I need a app called Tera Term to control the camera from the computer.
    But the Tera Term is too difficult to me. Is there any other app I can use ? Thanks!

    If your DRAGONS are DSCM1 (or if you have jetpack or REDVOLT expander module on DSMC2) you can use a lemo to GIG-Ethernet cable to connect all cameras into a GIG-E switch. Then they are all in master/slave mode and can be controlled simultaneously.

    Then if you are on mac OS or on iOS you can also connect the foolcontrol app to that same network and control them all remotely... sorry no PC support tho....
