Experience using Canon Remote Capture with CHDK cameras?
« on: 18 / April / 2011, 14:43:07 »

Would like to use my A570 for some Macro Photo Projects.

Checked my Canon Digital Camera Solution Disk ver 12.0 and have Remote Capture 2.7.0

Searched the forum but did not find anything using "Canon Remote Capture".

Am interested in any tips or suggestions using Canon Remote Capture with CHDK cameras.

Thanks

Ken

Canon does not provide remote control on P&S cameras any more, a570 is no exception to that. But CHDK PTP comes to the resque...It's under active development, but you may already find it useful.

See e.g. http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/PTP_Extension

Hi fudgey,

Thanks for the link.  Read the "This is in a very early stage still..." http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=6231.0
and "gui is not currently very useful" https://www.assembla.com/code/chdkptp/subversion/nodes/trunk/USAGE.TXT
so it is still early for me.

Have you tried it?

Ken

Both of these are only about the chdkptp client. ptpcamgui is much more mature.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

@KenO:

See also msl's nice little guide for using the ptpcam guide:

Hi fe50,

Thanks for the link to "msl some information about using the GUI:
http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=6285.msg64905#msg64905

Would like to try ptpcam gui on WindowsXP.

I tried to follow msl instructions but while it opened, I could not use my A570 CHDK camera when it was turned on and connected by usb.

Am guessing that I did not place libusb-win32 correctly.

Do you know of either a Screen Capture or a list of all the files and placement in ptpcam gui folder? 

If not could I request either to check my nonworking ptpcam gui folder with a working one?

Thanks

Ken
