Controll your Digicam!
In this workshop participants will learn how to control and misuse photographic and astronomical equipment for purposes not intended by the manufacturer. We will turn cheap compact cameras into scriptable power horses using the Canon Hacker's Development Kit (CHDK). Remotely control cameras via USB and gphoto2. Take a look at Kite Aerial Photography with picavet mounts and see how to use astronomical equipment for panoramic photography.
What should participants bring?
- Digicam preferable a camera supported by either gphoto2
(http://www.gphoto.org/doc/remote/) or chdk (http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CameraFeatures)
- Tripod or controlable telescope mount
