Is it possible to tell CHDK to capture a photo with the digital output from the GigaPan-Imager?
I have ordered the GigaPan Epic 100 yesterday. (look at it: http://www.gigapansystems.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=GS&Product_Code=I-E100
I need a schematic to make the digital output signal from the GigaPan compatible with CHDK.
here is the forum link:http://forum.gigapan.org/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=35&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&start=50
And here are the most important infos:
"The Epic 100 image electronic shutter release works differently than the Beta units. It acts as a switch allowing current to flow between two of the conductors. It enables a gate on a NFET which allows current to be conducted through the channel from the source to the drain if there is a potential difference. The beta unit would output a 5 volt pulse for a duration of one second."
"When Options -> Expert Options -> Shutter method is set to "Remote port":
Y-R: Voltage spike up to 5v. Resistance drops, indeterminate resistance as my multimeter didn't display quick enough.
Y-B: As above.
R-B: Negligible/small voltage (0.01v), infinite resistance throughout.
>From this, I guess that R-B is the NFET gate you speak of, and the reason I see no change in resistance is because there is no voltage across the pins (in line with your above description)."
Das anyone have an idea? :'(
