Summary: Canon 30D capture support
Hello, is the support for the new Canon 30D scheduled?
I think the protocol should be equal to the 20D so it
should be straight forward.
Maybe the Canon 5D is simple to add too.
As these are very popular cameras and probably isn't
that hard to support (I hope) I think this would be
Ok, I just got home and tried the 300D through PTP. I have
two machines one with Fedora Core 3 and other with FC4.
In the FC4 everything goes well, the machine is detected and
I can download the images.
But in FC3 there is some kind of problem. The camera is
indeed detected as a PTP camera but I can't get the files.
Doing a "gphoto2 --get-all-files" returns without any error
message but it does not get the files.
C'mon, the 30D / 5D both support the PTP mode. I saw some
post (I can't remember where) about recompiling the
libgphoto2 with a changed camlibs/ptps/library.c with a
clonned line from the 20D to add the support for the 5D. The
guy sad it worked fine.
For the record I don't own any of the two at the moment. I
use a 300D but I'll be upgrading soon.
