Hey guys...I know this is going to sound like a crazy newb question but I've never used RTM USB Triggering and I have a Cannon Powershot A810 HD setup for NIR/NDVI.   I don't see the camera listed in the Mission Planner settings?  Is there another camera that would be similar to use? I'm going to be using the Y6 platform with Pixhawk.Any help would be great!See More
