    Hey Guys,

    Is anyone operating their MoVI with the SBUS Futaba RX and have a useable shutter release? I know you can use the sbus port if you have the Spectrum rx, however I don't have that option at the moment. Any ideas?

    Cheers,

    Cam

    Hey Jason,

    I've got the 8FG, and R6208 rx, from which I'm plugged into the S-BUS channel at the moment. Are you suggesting that in addition to SBUS, I can plug the shutter release into ch. 8 and then configure that as a function in the transmitter? that would be neat

    so find the switch you want on the radio, then go to the monitor on your tx to found out what channel its using then just plug it into the corresponding channel on the R6208 just like a normal servo set-up

    That's great. I didn't realise you could mix and max sbus / pwm. On my Jeti with PPM it's not possible. Thanks Jason.

    Is anyone rolling Magic Lantern RAW on 5d MKIII? I am able to trigger stills, start stop H.264 and start RAW (.raw), however I can't stop RAW rolling.

    What makes you think this works with Magic Lantern Alex?
