I'm trying to get a functioning trailcamera into the field, using a Pi, PiNoir camera, and SleepyPi for battery management.
I have a bit of an issue in that from the time the camera is triggered until it has booted up and is running video is approximately 12 - 15 seconds.
I'm running Arch Linux so the operating system boots in 10 seconds but do I really need all that to run and store video and a Python shutdown script? It seems something more minimal could get the camera running faster.
The issue is the camera is triggering 5 - 6 times a day but not capturing much, probably (maybe?) because whatever it was has moved on by the time the camera rolls
