If you install the CHDK firmware mod. to your camera and make a simple USB remote release cable/switch you should be able to trigger the camera shutter automatically via the Merlin head with Papywizard.

Perhaps Claude may be willing to help with translation if needs be.

The camera control port on the Merlin head is a simple switch.

Just to be sure, is it this assembly that I have to do ?

Bon j'ai fait le câble pour relier la Merlin avec le canon A610, j'ai lancé le script du Remoteshutter, puis démarré une cession de Merlin. Il ne se passe rien sur l'APN quand papywizzard "prend une photo".

Est ce qu'il y a une option à  activer quelque part sur papywizzard ?

Merci ;-)

Est-ce ça marche sans la Merlin (en fermant le contact à  la main) ? Si oui, essaye d'inverser les fils qui vont à  la Merlin.

C'est un opto-coupleur qui fait le contact, donc ça agit comme une diode. Et vu que tu alimentes avec une tension continue, ça ne marche que dans un sens...

Do you have power in your switch/USB remote cable circuit? - as described here:
http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/USB_Remote_Cable

If you find you need 3xAAA batteries you can get a suitable battery box here:

Non j'ai pas mis d'interrupteur. J'ai branché directement de la Merlin à  l'APN. Je vais essayer d'inverser les fils.

Si la première méthode ne fonctionne pas j'essaye avec les piles et un interrupteur.

Euh, tu as besoin des piles dans tous les cas ! La Merlin ne fournit pas de jus, mais fait juste office d'interrupteur (qui en plus ne laisse passer le courant que dans un sens).

Pour info, j'ai fait le test avec mon A570is, et ça marche nickel.

ha d'accord, si j'avais vu ton post plus tôt ça m'aurait épargné 30min de bricolage:lol:

J'ai fait le test sur l'apn seul et ça marche nikel aussi. Je vais rebrancher sur la merlin avec des piles cette fois.
