Trouble geotagging w/ Mission planner, excess CAM msgs


Copter: 3DR X8
Camera: sony NEX 5T with IR trigger

When trying to geotag photos, this is the error message I receive:

Using AMSL Altitude True
Reading log for GPS Messages in order to get AMSL Altitude
Log Read for GPS Messages
Reading log for CAM Messages
Log Read with - 182 - CAM Messages found

CAM Msgs and Files discrepancy. Check it! Aborting…

The difference between the number of CAM messages and the number of photos is usually between two or three when flying in a grid pattern. When flying in an orbital pattern, using the ROI command, the difference between the two can be in the hundreds.

I’ve been searching a few fourms and have not seen this specific error message listed before. Is there some parameter or command that I am inputting that is causing for the huge disparity between CAM messages and photos taken? Can someone explain their methodology for creating flight plans so that the messages sync up? Thanks in advance!

I would also like to know. I sometimes get a couple of pictures mismatched when using CAM. Why ?

if the trigger if fireing faster than the camera can actualy take photos this normaly occurs.

mp now has an option to do time based match using just your cam messages.
