I’m configuring a shutter on a Sony camera - using the Sony Multi-Port connection.
I started by duplicating the configuration I had on another copter with a Naked GoPro.
There I followed the doc instructions - assigning channel-7 to camera relay, and setting relay_pin to “55” for the pins at AUX-6 on the carrier board.
This sends about 3 volts on the AUX-6 signal pin, for the specified number of milliseconds. This operates the Naked GoPro shutter perfectly.
This however failed to trigger the Sony shutter.
I discovered that to trigger the shutter, I simply need to momentarily close the circuit between the trigger and ground.
This means I need the carrier board AUX-6 to function as a “switch” only - open and closed - the default being open, closed when I “press the button” by activating channel-7.
I have no idea if this is possible. So far, I’ve seen nothing in the docs that speak to this.
Could someone please offer me some guidance? Many thanks!
Addendum - I suppose I could wire up a low voltage relay to do this - but if it can be done by the Cube and Carrier Board - it would save me the trouble.
