Can't trigger my Canon S100 from Pixhawk :/

Hi All,I have been trying to get my Iris+'s Pixhawk to trigger my Canon S100.  I have been following the Tuffwing instructions, but with no success.BEC is soldered where the TX60 for the battery joins the board. I have KAP 3.6 on the camera, and I can get the intervelometer to work easily.  Just not the trigger :/http://www.tuffwing.com/support/pixhawk_camera_trigger_cable.htmlWhat could I be doing wrong?…See More
