hello all,

 

Ive been working on a project for awhile and i was looking for external input. The end goal for the project will be to have a raspberry Pi4B with a Hawkeye camera (64MP) be triggered via a Pixhawk Flight controller running mission planner. The pixhawk sends a 100MS 5V trigger that i have a few devices for at pre determined times for mapping. The JPG photos would then be stored in an attached USB stick for ease in post processing. As a bonus, I would like for the EXIF data to contain GPS data of the corners and center field of view of the image for accurate Orthomosaic.

I will post on here as i go along with the project. I am not an expert in payloads so this if anyone has anyone inputs i would much appreciate it.

 

Cheers,

Indy.

@indywoo10 As I read your topic I had the following thoughts.

What is a hawkeye camera?

What is a Pixhawk flight controller?

What is mission planner?

JPG is the already processed versions of raw or DNG images.

GPS data for a image is doable, but to get the degree of resolution you are asking requires a very expensive setup. Until recently not available or legal.

I look forward to learning as I own a DJI drone and am a long time photograher and regularly process the raw files I take into JPEGS.

@zander 

A hawkeye camera is a 64MP camera that is native to the Raspberry Pi. ( https://www.arducam.com/64mp-ultra-high-res-camera-raspberry-pi/)

Pixhawk is a brand of flight controller that works with ardupilot. ( https://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-thecubeorange-overview.html)

Mission Planner is flight planning on monitoring software ( https://ardupilot.org/planner/)

Joint Motion Picture experts group format is just a Losi format that is widely accepted, not better than DNG or RAW. Its widely accepted with post processing software.

Please excuse my french but I hate DJI and everything it stands for. unless you are rooted  and using DJI, you are adding to the problem of DJI.

I plan on utilizing the Holybro H9P setup since it is similar in price as Sparkfun GPS setups with an easy plug and play option( https://shop.holybro.com/h-rtk-f9p-gnss-series_p1226.html)

 

please take 5 min to look at each link as i am sure it would answer all of your questions for the post.

@indywoo10 I am a amateur photographer. I know what raw and jpg are. jpg is the low quality but smaller image. You can try to process it further but there is so little data it doesn't get much better.

Since I am a DJI user I will not be dealing with you anymore, and even if I wasn't, I don't deal with your kind in any case. Too bad there isn't an ignore button here. BYE.
