Triggering 2 cameras simultaneously via mavlink and PWM

Hey all, I’m wondering if anyone has experience with this? I have a Sony camera I’m triggering via mavlink, and a FLIR I’m triggering via PWM. If I set a servo out as the cam trigger, will the flight controller send signals to both when I trigger the camera?

Not sure what are the requirements of your Sony camera, when you talk about Mavlink what exactly you refer to. Is it a companion computer with something like Mavros which monitor the input channels?

@vosair,

Yes, I think AP always forwards the mavlink message to trigger taking a picture regardless of what CAM_TRIGG_TYPE parameter is set to. This is a bit odd compared to how our other mavlink drivers work but I guess the good news is that it will work for the setup you describe.

Thanks Randy! Totally works as expected.
