Set Up Instructions
The Quick Scope pole comes in a travel bag. Inside your travel bag’s (1) pocket you will find (2) a wrapped cable, (3) camera lens cover, (4) monitor rain cover. (5) There is also a black waterproof cover for the camera.
The electronics for the Quick Scope can be found in the Hard Case. You will be using the camera and its external USB battery, memory card, the HD Monitor and its battery, and the camcorder remote.
When the Quick Scope pole is out of the travel bag you will see (1) the monitor swivel mount, (2) the remote plate where you clip your camera remote, and (3) the camera mount.
To set up the Quick Scope, (4) slide the quick release plate off the camera mount by (5) loosening the knob as shown.
Remove Sony camera and extended cylinder battery from hard case. Make sure micro SD memory card has been inserted into side slot. (1) First open viewfinder to turn ON camera. Next turn ON extended battery BEFORE connecting to camera. (2) Connect USB cord from camera to extended battery.
Next, put the camera on (1) the quick release plate and tighten into place. Then (2) slide the quick release plate back onto the camera mount and (3) tighten the knob to secure the camera and quick release plate.

To attach the cable, first (1) clip the carabineer attached to the cable to the eye-hole bolt of the Quick Scope pole. Next, we will connect the (2) Remote Multi-terminal connector to the camera’s multiport and the (3) HDMI Micro connector to the camera’s HDMI Micro output.
(1) Attach multi-port end into the camera’s MULTI port. This controls the zoom and record of the camera. (2) Attach micro HDMI end into camera’s HDMI OUT port, this is for the video feed down to the monitor.
Next, slide the (1) camera remote on to the mount as shown. (2) The camera remote controls the zoom in/out, record/standby, and on/off of the camera. The REC light on the remote will be RED when recording and GREEN when in standby. Use the (3) release button to remove the remote when you’re ready to remove it from the mount.
To raise the Quick Scope pole, (1) first remove the Velcro strap. Then (2) loosen the knob as shown. (3) Raise the pole to desired height and tighten the knob securing the pole into place. IMPORTANT: Always keep one hand on the pole you are raising or lowering to prevent the pole from coming down unexpectedly. (4) Use the Velcro strap to secure the cable, preventing it from getting caught on other equipment or blowing in the wind.
Connect the (1) white/gray multiport male connector to the female multiport input port in the top of the remote as shown. Then (2) connect the male HDMI connector into the female HDMI input port on the side of the monitor as shown. Make sure the monitor’s input setting is on HDMI by pushing the AV/PC button on the monitor. You should now have picture and be able to zoom with the camera remote.

(2) Fold the lens hood around the top of the camera, inserting the viewfinder through the slit, and Velcro as show. The lens hood should cover (3) the front of the camera lens by several inches as shown. (4) Attach quick release plate with camera and lens hood back onto the camera mount.
