digiCamControl

Postby AluK » Tue May 14, 2013 3:22 am

Free and Open Source Software to control most Nikon and some Canon DSLRs, tethered to your computer through USB.

Besides being quite a neat piece of software, very useful and at an irresistible price-point, the guys developing it probably have some understanding of the protocols underlying camera communication and might shed some light into hacky stuff. Maybe it would be neat idea to contact them and see if they want to get involved with this side of the hacks :D

I gues their work is based mostly on Nikon SDK for remote control https://sdk.nikonimaging.com/apply/
I don't think it is hack-related, or?

EDIT: of course everybody can and should join!

I've started porting my service tooling to work on top of the API exposed by this work (vs. glibphoto2), working for me so far...

I am using their Software for my beginner's Astrophotograhy sessions. Most of it comes out as junk. But if I could get that software running on something smaller then my non-waterproof laptop I could probably use it for timelapses. Probably taking pictures of severe weather without exposing my hardware and myself of any dangers. And to take pretty Bulb Astrophotographs. Last time I used it with my Nikon D3200 hooked up on a tripod on my roof I almost got hit by lightning. I wonder if an Android version with OTG support would be feasible for that purpose?
