Hi,

Is it possible to save images/video directly to a portable usb hard drive when shooting with the chdk camera? Would be ideal for video when using motion detection, this to enable large amount of video.

Regards,
Kes

You can't do that without some sort of device in between your camera and the hard drive.  USB is a "master : slave" protocal - one device is the master and the other the slave.  Slaves cannot communicate with other slaves.  And guess what - the USB port on a camera is a "slave" port as is the USB port on a portable hard drive.

That being said, one of the many more powerful micro-controller cards available (one with USB master hardware) could probably be setup to do the job via ptp.
