Hello, I'm curious if I can use CHDK to improve my stereo camera rig, which is currently 2 canon G10s connected with a 2.5mm split remote trigger. Ideally I would be able to connect the two cameras directly using a USB cable, and slave one to the shutter button of the other. Has anyone ever tried this before?
I've seen several posts and references to connecting multiple cameras via USB, but it is not clear to me exactly what cable one would use; do USB mini to mini cables even exist? Are there current problems when connecting two cameras directly? When I built my remote trigger years ago I learned that I had to use diodes to prevent battery drain across the two cameras, so I wonder if that is also a problem when connecting via USB.
I am a programmer, so I'm willing to try my hand at this even if it isn't fully supported in software, but I need to understand the hardware requirements first. Thanks in advance! -george
