How to install (mount) the VC-C4 / VC-C4R


Installing the Product


Install the camera securely.

  • When installing the camera on the ceiling, contact your Canon dealer.
  • When installing the camera on the ceiling, check that the ceiling is strong enough to bear the weight of the camera including the installation bracket. Installation in a weak location could result in the camera falling and causing serious injury.
  • At least once a year, check for looseness in the camera installation mount. (If the optional wide-angle converter is used, check the converter mount also.)

Note: The permissible camera installation angles are +/-20° from the horizontal. (+/-15° when the optional wide-angle converter is used.)

Using the Wide-angle Converter

The optional Wide-angle Converter WL-37 can be used to provide wide-angle shots (approx. 0.74x the normal focal distance). Mount the wide-angle converter correctly so that it is level and fitted securely onto the camera. When mounted correctly, the wide-angle converter should turn roughly 3 times before stopping.

The Wide-angle Converter WL-37 is designed specifically for the VC-C4 and cannot be used on the VC-C4R. If the converter is used on the VC-C4R, the mount will gradually loosen and the converter will fall off the camera.

Using a Tripod

The screw mount for a tripod is located in the center of the underside of the camera.

  • Do not overtighten the mounting screw. If excessive force is used to tighten the mounting screw, camera head movement may be impeded, or other malfunctions may result.
  • Always use a tripod mounting screw that is less than 6.0 mm (1/4 in.) in length. The use of screws 6.0 mm (1/4 in.) long or longer could damage the camera. Also, the tripod seat used should be at least 30 mm (1 3/16 in.) in diameter.
