Software set up
« on: 09 / May / 2010, 12:00:06 »
Good Afternoon.
As a new member and canon A470 owner I wish to simply use my A470 for kite aerial photography setting the A470 for adjustable interval photographs.  I have seen this done, I have read the article of how to do this in French (not easy) - I am a Brit living in France, I have managed to find my camera's firmware 1.02c, I have managed to load a ver.reg file onto my 4GB card (but not a vers.reg file).
Now I am completely stumped!  Can anyone please suggest a simple (for a simple person) means of loading the software I need onto my various memory cards?
Any help or suggestions would be gratefully received. Thanks in advance.  Tony Hillyard, Normandie, France

Don't forget what the H stands for.

Tony - you'll find quite a bit of helpful information over on the KAP forum at

As reyalp says, you need to download the A470 102c build from the website.

Alternatively you could try the SDM build for the A470 available at The "common" there contains an installer for SDM as well as sample scripts (including intervalometers for KAP).

Thank you both very much.... I will attempt to understand how this works.  All the best from an overcast Normandie, France. - Tony

A big thanks to all concerned, especially Dave Mitchell.  I have now managed to load my memory cards and can join the happy band of KAPers.

All the best - Tony Hillyard
