I realize this topic has been dealt with in some depth in several posts dating back to nearly a year ago but I still have some questions. I have Canon S100 Camera. Exactly what parts do I need in order to record time stamps with hotshoe?
Exactly which hotshoe adaptor? On E-bay I see different kinds, mini, advanced, standard???
Which Tuffwing cable for time stamps?
(Possibly optional?) Which Tuffwing cable to power Reach module?
(Optional) Trigger Canon S100 from Solo pixhawk.
My goal is to trigger camera with CHDK KAP script(based on time intervals for now), and post process flight log on desktop after. In the future I’d be interested in triggering from pixhawk. It will be mounted on Solo drone but I will not be using Reach for drone navigation. I would prefer to power module from drone, although I do have a small, light power bar that would be suitable if I have to. I have gone through every website available dealing with the subject and I am somewhat confused. Any help would be very welcome!
With the S100 you can extract the shutter trigger times from the KAP log file (may require a bit of fiddling to discover the time offset if the GPS clock sync is not great - it seems a bit inconsistent).
Awesome! Thanks! With so much information available it’s nice to have some of it kind of sorted out and recommended specifically. Otherwise, I find myself a little overwhelmed. I already own a Canon S100 that I have been using. Will try to use KAP GPS log for now but I will start working toward integrating the Sony a6000 with my Solo.
