Trigger latency compensation allows you to discard (trim) frames at the beginning of the capture so you are not forced to save a portion of video that is always uninteresting.

Background

You can compensate for a latency (delay) between when the event of interest occurs and a later point in time when the camera is triggered. For example, if you are using a radar to trigger the camera, there is a delay in measuring the speed of an object, such as a baseball. Since the edgertronic camera supports a pretrigger buffer capturing frames before the trigger occurs, the camera creates a video of all the event details. However, a side effect of trigger latency is
