Getting CAM messages in Arducopter 3.2.1

I'm Planning to do mapping with my quad running on Arducopter 3.2.1 . I want APM to log the Cam messages that get triggered with respect to the distance travelled. I tried editing the bits of the Log_Bitmask. But noway i was able to log the CAM messages on APM. Somebody please help me.

  • How do you have the camera hot shoe hooked up?

    Have you connected the hot shoe to the right pins and configured the parameters to read the pins correctly?

    • Hi Mike,

      I do have my Canon Ixus 135 plugged to RC9 pin of my APM via a mini usb cable and I am able to trigger the camera through the GCS. But there is no CAM message that gets looged in the Dataflash log.

      • Also do i need to have a GPS 3d fix to have the CAM messages logged ?

        • Have read through this:

          Camera Shutter Control

          Camera Shutter Configuration — Copter documentation
          • Thank you for the link Mike.

            And as i said Mike i can control the process of taking image from Mission planner. What i want is the CAM message that stores the data when i triggered the camera.
