I am using a setup that currently runs with 5 D415 cameras in streaming. There is no need for streaming, and I could do just fine with getting 1 frame from a camera when I send a command.
I read this post and this document. I don't need any synchronization between cameras, each one will be triggered separately at different times. This will enable me to add as many cameras as possible to the setup without bandwidth issues.
So, I have several questions:
1. Besides setting all the cameras to salve mode and connecting to the 9pin connector. Is there a configuration I need to change to disable streaming and get only frames when I want?
2. If I don't care about syncing just to "press the shutter", do I still need to find the real frame rate of cameras?
3. If yes, will I have to do that for every camera? or if they have the same configuration, doing it to one f them will be enough.
4. HW wise, any recommendation on how to send this 1.8v trigger command to the cameras directly from a pc? or will I need some kind of I/O module to do that?
