Connecting multiple cameras via bluetooth

PostWed Mar 13, 2019 11:35 am

Hello,

I have few URSA Mini Pro cameras. I have looked into sample iOS application they are providing.
My question is: is someone successfully connected more than one camera via Bluetooth?

My main goal is to start recording on more than one camera from application. I think I can rewrite UI and so, but at the moment I m struggling with connections.

I assume it is possible, but as I m not so confident in Swift, I wanted to know, maybe someone already have tried it?

I'm not 100% sure, but following the bluetooth protocol here:

https://documents.blackmagicdesign.com/ ... ontrol.pdf

if you send hex values over bluetooth, the first value should be the camera index you would want to trigger the command on. I would assume you'd just have to iterate over which indices you'd want to trigger (camera 1-5, trigger on 0x01, 0x02, 0x03, 0x04, 0x05).

It also mentions that you can simply pass a value of 255 (0xFF) to trigger all connected devices. I've successfully been able to get both 0x01 and 0xFF to trigger my pocket 4k from early testing
