I'm looking for some way to use the built-in SX530HS wifi to copy files to a PC under CHDK control.
See reyalp's investigations
I wasn't going to have windows on the other end, but Linux (or maybe Canon's app under wine or Android on a Linux box?).
I would be thrilled to just get a straight socket interface (or at least a stream I/O interface) to either C code compiled-into CHDK or a Lua script -- that would be ideal! It looks like that has been done before, according to the 2013 thread; I'll have to look that over with my students....

Basically, I'm trying to have an array of cameras functions as one. I've done this many times before, but always using USB for sync and then being stuck with the problem of how to collect the captures when done. It's not hard to collect the images via a FlashAir card (and even to send commands to the cameras via having FlashAir read commands and stick them in a file a CHDK script can scan), but that didn't help with FourSee (shown in the attached photo), because the PowerShot N doesn't take SD cards. With the SX530HS, our issue is simply cost -- we're trying to tie more together and an extra $30/camera for FlashAir cards hurts.

I'm looking for some way to use the built-in SX530HS wifi to copy files to a PC under CHDK control.The wifi support built-into the SX530HS seems fine for allowing files to be remotely downloaded, and it can even fire the shutter, but that's all. I know it would be very hard to get full wifi control under CHDK, but I've found that CHDK can continue running -- even running lua scripts -- while the camera is wifi tethered. The catch is that the wifi apparently disables all the camera buttons, and that causes CHDK to be unable to do things like capturing another photo while wifi is running. E.g., shoot() apparently uses the button-press interface and is hence disabled, but scripts can still be running and even writing on the display. A lua script can take photos and then enable wifi to send them, but ending the wifi connection apparently forces the camera to power down rather than to return to normal operation. I'm open to any workaround.....
