Is there a way to use the camera's USB streaming function for extended periods of time?

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check the Applicable Products and Categories section of this article before starting these steps.

    If you are using the camera's USB streaming function and the battery runs out during streaming, you may have set USB Power Supply to Off on the camera, or your USB port may have 500 mA power output.
    It is recommended that you connect the camera to a USB port capable of 1,500 mA power output and set USB Power Supply to On on the camera.

    Note: When USB Power Supply is set to On, power is supplied from a computer, etc. to the camera during USB streaming, so the power of the computer, etc. is consumed.

     If you want to use the streaming function for extended periods of time, please try the following. 

    • Charge the rechargeable battery pack of the camera fully before starting streaming. 
    • Set USB Power Supply to On. (Power is supplied from a computer, etc. to the camera.) 
    • Connect to a USB port capable of 1,500 mA power output.
