This video shows a work in progress of some great software that Dan and PTB have been working on to improve the ability of the Camera Axe to photograph lightning. While the Camera Axe was already pretty good at photographing lightning this makes a number of significant improvements to that software. I encourage others to join the forum thread below and help design the best possible software update to photograph lightning. Some of the major improvements are an easier to use menu, a floating average threshold mode, and only triggering on a rising edge.
* Here’s the forum thread where Dan and PTB helped design this software update
* The software used in this video
* Directions on how to update the Camera Axe software
* The lightning images where from John Groseclose
I expect there to be more updates in this area going forward so keep an eye on that forum thread.
