1. The ILCE QX1 has an “AutoPowerOFF” timer of about 2 minutes. After this period the camera goes to sleep/shuts off. The “AutoPowerOFF” timer resets itself after each trigger, so keep that in mind. The cable described in this tutorial doesn’t have a “keep alive” function, so if you will not take any shot within a 2 minutes interval the camera will shut itself down.

2. Initial camera settings can be applied via the Agrowing Android application, which is distributed free of charge with Agrowing’s multi spectral camera purchase.

3. There are few companies out there, which already sell some working solutions for camera triggering including the ILCE QX1. If you want to check these solutions go to one of these links:
