Hello,

I'm wondering if teleskop-austria, or anyone could build a replacement crown for me.

When you do tethered shooting, the image has to be completely written to the memory card then it's transferred to the computer. I think that's where this extra 2 seconds come from.

Tried Y cable instead of powered hub.
Didn't work. Though I think this cable is faulty because it didn't work with PC and Mac either.

I am going to use a 'battery' powered usb hub. So power source is not a problem with that.
Those two hubs are about he size of N810. That to me is perfectly fine.

I don't know of any handheld device that has USB host mode other than Pandora Handheld.

On my Mac, system info shows that my DSLR requires 100mA.
I guess that's what is needed.

I think I'll just get that $20 solar charging usb hub, or will find a way to use Merlin head's 12V output.

Good news everyone.. Just a moment aog, I was able to use gphoto2 on N810 with my old D30. And I had NO PROBLEM. The key was using a *powered hub* between N810 and the camera. (Stupid me. a few months ago I had an idea of using hub but didn't power it up then) Here's a simple diagram N810 -- USB cab...

Hi there guys I've been trying to come up with a default setting for use in 180x360 panos from which adjustments can be made. I'm using a basic setup ~ Merlin, Canon 400D, 18-55mm EFS lens... What I'd like is some simple input from users of the forums as to settings that they'd use for indoor panos...

I wonder if usb/ip would work on nokia handhelds?
I've been researching same topic as you but slightly different approach.
Wireless usb and other linux handhelds.
open pandora for example.

Could you post a picture of your 5D connector? It's the same shape as my D30's. Just 180 degree turned. The reason for this difference is, the position of PC socket. Seen from the side of the camera, PC socket is on the left side of shutter release socket on D30. While PC socket is located above sh...

I noticed that this camera's over/underexposure indicator goes off 3-4 seconds after touching shutter button. When over/under exposure indicator is off, there...

Paul, can you tell me where you bought your shutter trigger cable? Could you take a picture of the Canon connectors, on the cable and on the 5D? Mine goes on the rear of the camera body, and your goes on the front, which is better. I don't know if it is a camera or cable difference. Thanks. Hi Fréd...

When I tell Papywizard to connect to the mount it just says Connecting to real hardware... and nothing else happens no matter how long I wait. In the configuration I told Papywizar...

In fact, your plugin will replace the Gphoto one we started some times ago, as you did what we planned to do with JP :)

Cool. Thanks.

So, I worked on it further added a few more bits to it. See the screenshots.

Call and ask them before you actually order on-line. When I tried them in December, they didn't have it in stock.
Apparently, it was not their regular stock item.
