oCam pins

Unread postby sujugrey » Sat Nov 05, 2016 2:28 am

Hello. I am working on the oCam Camera for a project and I have a few questions. There are three pins on the back (vcc, trigger, gnd); what exactly does the trigger pin do and how do I safely set it off? Lastly, I was wondering if there exists a fsync pin/signal somewhere on the camera. Thanks in advance.

The trigger pin is reserved for future use. Namely, it is not available at the moment.
Also, there is no fsync pin accessible by user.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.

If I understand correctly external hardware (wired) trigger is not possible today, but the pin is "prepared". Are there any plans for making the trigger pin work in the future? If you enable this feature the VALUE of the camera will be much higher and you will get more sales! :)

Also I have a relevant question here: oCam-1MGN-U external trigger with auto exposure. May I ask you to answer it too? Thanks in advance!

We are afraid we don’t have specific schedule to release the external trigger function as of now.

Can we use these pins to power oCam in case USB power is weak or cable too long? If so, how to connect?
