Connecting the Camera
Find a memory card containing pictures you want to copy to the computer and insert the card into the camera.
Loss of power during transfer could result in loss of data or damage to the memory card. Insert a fresh or fully-charged battery before connecting the camera.
Turn the camera off and connect a third-party USB 3.0 or 2.0 cable (either type can be used), making sure the connectors are fully inserted.
Micro USB (Micro-B) USB 3.0 Micro USB (Micro-B) USB 2.0
Use a USB 3.0 cable for higher speeds with computers that support USB 3.0.
Turn the camera on.
Copy pictures to your computer. During tethered shooting, you can copy pictures using tethered shooting software such as the FUJIFILM Tethered Shooting Plug-in PRO. Otherwise you can use MyFinePix Studio or applications provided with your operating system.
When transfer is complete, turn the camera off and disconnect the USB cable.
If a memory card containing a large number of images is inserted, there may be a delay before the software starts and you may be unable to import or save images. Use a memory card reader to transfer pictures.
The USB cable must be no more than 1.5 m (4.9 ft.) long and be suitable for data transfer. Connect the camera directly to the computer; do not use a USB hub or keyboard.
Do not disconnect the USB cable while data are being exchanged between the camera and computer or insert or remove memory cards while transfer is in progress. Failure to observe this precaution could result in loss of data or damage to the memory card.
In some cases, it may not be possible to access pictures saved to a network server using the software in the same way as on a standalone computer.
