    Hi!

    I'm about to install a compact camera to my P2. It's still going to ge easy to change it between the the H3-3D gimbal and the compact camera. I've got the most part figured out, however for the shutter button i'm planing to have a servo that triggers the shutter botton. Mainly for the ease of switching cameras (have a 3D-printer so can print mounts for the servo).

    I'm planing to use the s2 botton on the controller. However i don't have a clue on how to make that happend. I saw that Droneexpert have the s2 botton as a trigger for the camera on there RX100 mount, so I know it can be done.
    Can someone lead me in the right direction?

    Video from Droneexpert with s2 trigger. 24 sec in to the film.

    I saw this video for the installation for the cameras... But it must be some more to configure for the software?

    They have some special proprietary setup to do that, normally there's no way to tap the output of the S2 switch like that.
