yeah, that would be a nice "backdoor" to finding out how the USB stuff works. nice find :)

When first trying remote for the s3 (before I knew CHDK) I was looking for a way of implementing the USB commands directly in a microcontroller. When CHDK came I went along with it as the basic research existed. Now looking at the VP Systems site they state using the PTP protocol for remote control so I Googled and found som interesting links.
These are opensource (Linux?!) for communication with cameras and the PTP extension canon has will allow (some) remote functions.
I have not looked into this very much (I am not Linux addicted  ;)) so I have no idea if this can be used in a simple fashion (small micro with some simple USB commands and HW).

Perhaps this could be also interesting for you?:

When USB is not usable here, what about something like this for the Canon DSLRs (eg. 350D)


Does anybody here know whether there is some kind of serial IO on the flash connector?

I would like GPS data in EXIF also, .. maybe we can drop USB, many GPS's output standard serial NMEA data, that takes only one pin/input to recieve..

The solution is simple - turn your GPS on and record a track log while you are taking pictures. At home use a free program (sorry, forget the names right now) that can take a collection of pictures and the GPS track log and add the coordinates to the EXIF data.

I.e. there is no need to do this in the camera.

Yep, I found this solution minutes later:
In Ubuntu, it's very simple : GPSCorrelate does the tagging job
if logs/tracks need conversion, Gebabbel converts anything :)

thanks anyway.
