External trigger cable
« on: August 22, 2019, 06:13:41 PM »
Does anybody know how to configure the external BNC trigger cable to substitute the shutter button on the camera body? Just press the button to record and press again to end and save.

Any input is appreciated!

We don't have this feature in the current V0.3.1 software, but it is planned for the upcoming 0.4 update.
However, it is possible to do some similar things:
-To make the camera automatically start recording right after finishing a save, you can enable Auto Record in the Util menu.
-To record video only while holding down the trigger, you can enable Gated Burst record mode.

If you're just looking to conserve battery life, just use Auto Record - recording actually takes no more power than sitting idle.
