Dear all,

Let me introduce myself, I am a computer science student from Bina Nusantara University. I am researching in computer vision. I want to measure an object size using a camera. I need Focus Pulse information since it leads to knowing the distance between the object and the camera.

Is there any information on how to get/ hack Focus Pulse?

Thank you very much in advance for your help and attention.

warmest regards,
suryadi

Can you please specify the camera model? The possible answer pretty much depends on that.

If you don't want to risk damage to an expensive DSLR, there is a list of all Canon Powershot P&S cameras supported by CHDK here:  For Developers : Cameras overview 

Most of these can be purchased used on eBay or similar sites for very little cost.  For purposes of your project, that might be the easiest option?
Ported :   A1200    SD940   G10    Powershot N    G16
