Hello, I am currently building a cnc machine (3 axes), with a camera to make an animated film. I would like to buy a camera fully controllable with gphoto2. I wonder if it is actually possible to control the parameters of this camera: Canon PowerShot G10
whitebalance Aperture Shutter Speed Focusing point zoom

I am however not sure if there is a shootingmode where both Aperture and Shutterspeed can be set at the same time though.
(shootingmode would be need to set to manual)

Hmm, yes... but e.g. the G9 only has "center" and "auto"?
So a bit unclear what the camera allows and what we currently support.

On Canon Powershots ... No. Manual focusing is not possible.
The Canon EOS and newer Nikon DSLR have methods to do this, but
the Canon Powershot with their regular firmware do not.
Hi I checked the old messages(http://old.nabble.com) to find the camera that could suit me. There are not that much that seems to have the manual focus with gphoto: Apparently, these cameras are ok:
Canon EOS 5D mark II Canon EOS 7D ( too expensive for me)
Maybe this ones: Canon EOS 500d / 550d nikon d5000
Thanks for your work. Goulven.
