PTP with canon S95

Hello

I'm new here, first of all I want to thank you for the job.

My skills are very poor but I succeeded to install CHDK for my Canon S95-100k

But what I want is to be able to control that camera with my computer (a mac or it would be the best : a Raspberry Pi)

I don't know how to do this ? Is there a script or something I have to download ?

Well thanks for the ones who could help me and give me the first steps

All the best

Thanks Nafraf

But I forgot to tell : I'm 5 years old and French !

So I need to understand

This will not work with my mac, right ? Just Linux ?

I have to download a zip file and after that  ? Upload into my camera's SD card ?

I need little more details, if it's possible...

chdkptp is an application for your computer, you don't install it in your camera. In your camera you need to run CHDK.

You can start reading this: https://tools.assembla.com/svn/chdkptp/trunk/README.TXT

Ok Nafraf

I'm trying that but that needs a lot of skills

Just one last question in cause I'm out of luck (actually I'm out of luck with my Raspi) : Is there a way with a Mac to take the control of my CHDK-S95 ?

A kind of Eos Utility+CHDK for dummies ?

Thanks very much

It should be possible to make a snapshot SD card image for the Raspi with CHDK installed on one of the standard distro's if that route would work for you.

Thanks for your answer but I'm afraid I don't understand it !
Could you be more explicit

I must say that I've been struggling with the Raspi, my Canon 7D, and Gphoto2 for over 2 weeks now...

I'd love to succeed controling a camera with the Raspi but I'm afraid it's too hard for me...

So I'd like to find a mac solution (thanks nafraf for the link but it's just for 10.8)

Your raspi has an SD memory card.  The operating system for the pi is loaded from that memory card, as are all the programs it runs.   Somebody who has chdkptp already loaded on their raspi could make a copy of their SD memory card that you could then install on your card.

If you did not setup your raspi's memory card yourself then this might seem a bit complicated.

Ok I do understand now...
If I want to control a compact camera like my Canon S95 I need Chdkdptp + Gphoto2

I'm gonna ask (don't know yet where but i'll try)

Thanks !
