Capturing movies with sound is currently possible with: Also see this Canon page for a overview of which cameras are supported and which are not as of April 1st The eosremoterelease refers to the direct shutter button manipulation, so it can be used for different scenarios outside of immediate shutter releases. These are 3 different relative stepsizes for both focusing directions. I’ve written a Python binding for gphoto2 , called piggyphoto , available here:. This page lists cameras remotely controllable for capture. All Powershots released after mid are not capable of remote control anymore.

The same applies for libgphoto2 capture support. Most of these cameras do not support remote capture.

Specifying the port and camera you use

Look at the title bar of the preview window. But if you blur a blurred image, it won’t change much.

Uses “Normal” mode in the camera and the “canon” driver in libgphoto2. The object will gphoo2 focused; turn the ring a bit farther, and the object will become blurred.

As a workaround for the focus measure not being absolute, I’ve implemented a slightly less easy-to-use procedure: It’s not really useful in the current state, but if you like it, it may be gpuoto2 into Magic Lantern. Another solution, which seems better, is to use morphological opening or closing.


Remote controlling cameras

We do not know how to do Bulb capture yet. Those are likely able to be supported by libgphoto2 if not already. This gpyoto2 lists cameras remotely controllable for capture. Here is an experiment for implementing trap focus in tethered shooting mode, with piggyphoto. It will display a live preview. If you turn the focus ring slowly enough, this seems to work well Only with updated firmware, see here. The binding gphotoo2 based on ctypes, which means only in theory that you don’t have to compile anything in order to use it.

It is meant to be wiki-like, so if you have any additions, please mail them to gphoto-devel lists. Do not support remote control.

Shutterspeed and Aperture not available in Auto or P setting, only in the more manual ones. These are 3 different relative stepsizes for both focusing directions. If you want to stream the captured preview images, use something similar to: Only tethered shooting, Firmware 2. Replace 10s by the number of seconds you want to have your movie long.


Then run the script again.

Remote control with PTP and Python

Statement from Canon SDK: In “non preview” mode the focus motor is only controllable by the autofocus engine. If you start doing remote capturing, please begin by gpboto2 the latest libgphoto2 and gphoto2 stable releases, as remote control improvements and fixes are being added continously. Manual focusing only works in the “liveview” aka “preview” mode with mirror up.

Set Modewheel to “M” to get all settings. However, I don’t know how to compile ptpcam as a shared library.

The title bar will say “Focus peak found”. The focus is computed from the central area of the image, having x pixels.
