Hi,I know, silly question, but I can't seem to find an answer.  I currently have an Iris and APM Planner 2 on a Mac.  What is the easiest way to track flight times other than using a stopwatch? Does…Continue

Deon van der Merwe replied to Todd's discussion New GoPro Lens vs Cannon CHDK for mapping in the group IRIS
"I also use a Sony RX100 without gimbal on the Iris+ (I use a Canon s100 in the same way). I made a simple interface plate out of thin plywood that allows the camera to be mounted with the top facing forward. The interface plate is attached with…"

"Very simple : under the Iris 3 bolts holding a plastic plate, intermediate 1 cm thick piece of foam for vibration, and RX100 hold by its extended strap around the Iris body."

"Nice!....1 inch 20mp sensor and 213 grams....what mount do you use? Something from impconcepts.com? Man I'm envious."

"I use a Sony RX100 with no gimbal (Nadir view) for aerial mapping. With my Iris+ I get maximum 10 min. But I must say my batteries are not so young now. I always wondered how could be the quality of Gopro based mapping."

"iso 100-400, shutterspeed 1000-2000, infinity focus do the trick"

"Do you have your GP mounted on the gimbal? I also note the S100 weighs 170 grams. Mine is newer and lighter, significantly."

Doug Ellison replied to Todd's discussion New GoPro Lens vs Cannon CHDK for mapping in the group IRIS
"They looked at tlogs and told me not to fly my S100 under my Iris+ as it was too heavy.   That's what they said. I was using the KAP-UAV script - and never, not once, could I get consistent un-blury photos.  I wasted days trying -…"

DavidFolts replied to Todd's discussion New GoPro Lens vs Cannon CHDK for mapping in the group IRIS
"Doug-  It seems the nice folk at 3DR customer service may say things they perhaps ought not to. My Iris Tarot gimbal, that came in a nice 3DR-labelled box, weighs-in at 284 grams with gopro. See this link for weight on the scale. My…"

Heller Gregory replied to Todd's discussion New GoPro Lens vs Cannon CHDK for mapping in the group IRIS
"I use a GoPro, the Cannon is too heavy.  The software takes out the fisheye lens, I just upload.  I have it set on 12MP @ 1FPS and get very accurate results.   Get the trial to ReCap 360 (autodesk) or Pix4D.  Pix4D has a limited…"

Doug Ellison replied to Todd's discussion New GoPro Lens vs Cannon CHDK for mapping in the group IRIS
"Don't believe the '500g' payload claim for the Iris+     I was flying a 200g Canon Powershot S100 - and was told by 3DR after it crashed that the reason it crashed was I was carrying too much weight.   Iris+ is marginal…"

DavidFolts replied to Todd's discussion New GoPro Lens vs Cannon CHDK for mapping in the group IRIS
"My Canon rig weighs in at 185 grams...well under the max payload of 500 grams for an Iris+. Canon 330HS and Nadir mount on Scale I'm also using Agisoft, albeit the trial version. Hope to see something later today. Been struggling with this…"

"I am using a Canon A4000. It is cheap, 16 MP's. GPS in the camera is useless. There are many videos on this. Welcome to college, again."
Feb 14, 2016
Doug Ellison replied to Todd's discussion New GoPro Lens vs Cannon CHDK for mapping in the group IRIS
"I tried a Powershot S100.... and the Iris+, on multiple occasions, couldn't handle the weight and just crashed.  3DR told me that it was too heavy.  The GPS from the S100 was unreliable anyway. It wasn't worth the hassle - so…"

DavidFolts replied to Todd's discussion New GoPro Lens vs Cannon CHDK for mapping in the group IRIS
"I use a Canon Elph 330HS.....one of the smallest Canon P&S units made, but with fill HD, image stabilization, and it runs CHDK and the KAP-UAV script very nicely. I had thought about using a camera with built-in GPS, but the Iris+ tlog file will…"
