M2 camera control Canon EOS M50


Canon EOS M50 camera connected to the Reach M2 module via Hot Shoe adapter. Manual shooting time mark ok. Camera trigger not working. Please help!

Hi @lipisoftware,

Welcome to the community forum!

Please note that the hot-shoe adapter is not capable of providing the trigger signal to the camera.

The camera trigger with the Reach doesn’t work out of the box. You need to use the Trigger1 pin of C1 port according to the connectors’ pinout and connect it to the camera according to its specs with another cable.

Usually, we recommend triggering the camera with the autopilot as it has more information about the flight plan. It can make more informed decisions on when to fire the camera.
