Control SX30 IS from PC

Hi. I would like to control my PowerShot SX30 IS from my PC.

Ideally, I would like to make the camera shoot photos periodically and store the images on my PC. I can write some of the software, but I just read that the SX30 does not support any SDK.

Is it possible to do sth about it please?
thanks!

???

The CHDK PTP extension works for all CHDK supported cameras. All what you need is an alternative USB driver (only available for Windows and Linux).
