Hi Chandrahas,

You can trigger your camera using trigger pin on C1 port of Reach M2:

If you have a hot shoe adapter connected to your camera, the trigger event will be stored automatically on Reach.

Hi Chandrahas,

You can check the pinout scheme for the C2 port here. You can use this port for time marks recording or the time synchronization via PPS output.

To make sure Reach is recording time marks to the raw data log, you need to integrate the receiver with the camera via the hot shoe connector. Then, Reach will record a time mark each time you take a photo. You can trigger the camera with the autopilot.

You can connect the hot shoe cable to the C2 port. The time marks are going to be saved in the raw data log.
