How to install (mount) the VB-C50FSi / VB-C50Fi


1. Set Up the Camera

Firstly, set up the camera. Read the following carefully and make sure the camera is set up properly.


Install the camera securely.

  • When installing the VB-C50FSi/VB-C50Fi on the ceiling or a wall, contact your Canon dealer.
  • When installing the VB-C50FSi/VB-C50Fi on the ceiling or a wall, check that it is strong enough to bear the weight of the VB-C50FSi/VB-C50Fi including the mounting arm. Installation in a weak location could result in the VB-C50FSi/VB-C50Fi falling and causing serious injury. Check that the ceiling can hold either 3 times the weight of the camera and arm or 8kgs (whichever is heavier) for 1 minute.
  • When attaching the arm to the ceiling, make sure that the screws are tightly fastened. The arm and camera may fall if the screws are not tightly fastened, which may cause serious injury.
  • At least once a year, check for looseness in the camera installation mount. (If the optional wide converter is used, check the converter mount also).
  • Do not install the arm in a place that shakes or vibrates frequently as the screws may come loose causing the camera to fall or be damaged, which in turn may cause serious injury


  • The MAC address required when making network settings is shown on the rear of the VB-C50FSi/VB-C50Fi. Please make a note of it before installing this unit.
  • Always use a tripod mounting screw that is less than 6.0 mm (0.24 in.) in length. The use of screws 6.0 mm (0.24 in.) long or longer could damage the camera. Also, the tripod seat used should be at least 30 mm (1.18 in.) in diameter.
