Today, I'd like to share with you our solution to triggering a camera via a wired remote shutter release cable WITHOUT needing third party hardware. I hope this little guide is useful to some of you!…See More

"It is the V-map System. A geodetic grade dual frequency L1/L2 GPS receiver operating at 20Hz for capturing the precise position of the camera at the moment of exposure. It is a post processing based solution but can be configured for RTK. "
