Basic information

EXIF Geotagging #

Entire is cappable to geotag JPG or RAW images directly in your Sony Camera. Once you land your drone, all photos are geotagged with precise GPS position of the capture. Optionally you can also get accurate camera angle in the EXIF with supported Gremsy or SimpleBGC gimbals. Also you can equip EXIFs with accurate subject distance measurement, measured by supported Laser range finder (LightWare).

Drone Compatibility #

Our system is able to read GPS positions from :

  • DJI A3 or DJI N3 flight controllers (DJI M600 drone included)
  • DJI M300
  • PixHawk
Camera Compatibility #

Geotagging mode for Sony cameras uses USB connection in Mass Storage mode.

As opposite to camera control mode, where Entire uses PC Remote USB mode of the camera, in Mass Storage mode camera has no support for remote control of exposure values.

Due to this fact, we’ve implemented workarounds to achieve back Camera control – IR Commanding and SmartPlug camera control and mixed WiFi mode. SmartPlug is basically smart dummy battery inserted in Camera’s battery slot. SmartPlug provide power for the Camera and also simulates original Battery Grip for remote control. Alternatively, for cameras where SmartPlug can not be used, we’ve implemented mixed WiFi & USB control mode, where camera is controlled via WiFi and Geotagged via USB.

As per table below, for some cameras you can choose three options:
   1) Geotagigng + Basic control
   2) Geotagging + Full control via SmartPlug
   3) Geotagging + Full control via WiFi
If you would like to get full control and your camera can be controlled via SmartPlug, use SmartPlug control option over WiFi.
