S95 PTP Control - "Capture" assistance needed
« on: 22 / February / 2011, 22:12:47 »
I want to be able to take pictures with my S95 connected via PTP. It isn't important that they get transfered to the computer right away, but I at least want to be able to take the photos for a stop motion video, so there is less of a chance that the camera will shake. I am aware that I could create a USB trigger remote, but I think it shouldn't be to hard to just do it over a PC. I've tried gphoto, and other linux based solutions, but most end up with "Sorry, your camera does not support generic capture." I think this has to do with the gphoto wanting to send the photo over, but I really just want the camera to take a photo and save it to the SD card.

All help is appreciated!

To capture using PTP, you must use a program that supports CHDK PTP protocol. The only program that does this is our own customized ptpcam

You can learn more about CHDK PTP in the PTP thread:

Please understand that this feature is under development and should be considered experimental.

You can find ptpcam and ptpcamgui on the german forum: http://forum.chdk-treff.de/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2207

If you don't speak german, I suggest google translate (or chromes built in translate)
Don't forget what the H stands for.
