Edit: What i can find here in large quantitites is the IXUS145, but upon my research on the Forum i could not find a working port already. Maybe i could not find the release? There is a lot of work going on right now to port the ixus160_elph160 - a currently available low cost camera suitable for book scanners. IXUS160/ELPH160 Porting attempt While work is not yet complete, it seems this will likely be then next CHDK supported camera.
i want to build a 3dscan booth with 64 cameras....What would be the cons of this setup? Can i simply take image from all of them at once, even if they are different models with different firmwares?
Quote from: 3dcanon on 21 / April / 2015, 14:14:16How many cameras i can connect max. on one core i7 with 16gb ram PC and enough self powered usb hubs? Can i connect all 64 cams to one PC or do i have to divide them to 2 or 3 networked PC's?In theory, each host controller can support up to 127 devices, and most PCs have more than one controller so the just number of cameras shouldn't be a problem.

Is it understood, in theory, if that means chdkptp can be used to "connect to" cameras on multiple host controllers?
Thanks reyalp - I had been thought the opposite all this time!
in case you are not aware there are a couple of absolute must read multicam threads, starting at:http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=11667.msg114307#msg114307http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=11583.msg113395#msg113395
Editorial Comment : I think this may be one more use case where my idea about having unique CHDK serial numbers for each camera would have value in maintaining the system : Unique Camera ID Numbers needed for multi-camera rigs ?
If you can stick to two or three models that would help then..
Reyalp posted a link to the wiki page for mulitcam rigs - links to many forum threads are down at the bottom of that page.

As waterwingz says, it's possible you won't need any different settings between cameras, but the risk wouldn't be there at all if you used identical cameras. You won't know for sure until you do it.
One of the the "Many Problems" with 3dscan booth rigs it is sometimes necessary to have "Noise" orsome form of "Grid Pattern" to improve the 3D Capture.
Currently the Ixus 145 is "Generaly" on "Run-Out" special and it is stillocasionaly avaliabe at "Super Discouned" prices a recent example wasa one-off Christmas discount at $au20 each.
# Maximuim Length of USB-2 cable runs, the limit is about 5 meters.# Location of and the Number of Ports in your USB-2 Hubs.# Possible Use of "Active" USB-2 Hubs and the use of Sheilded Cat-6 cables.# Grounding & Sheilding of USB-2 Cables.# Termination, Grounding & Sheilding of the Common "Shoot" Cable; if used.# Grounding & Sheilding of the Power Cabling.
attached is a pretty awful power connection diagram that I have on disk - among other things, it doesn't address safety but it may be useful.
