Or that Nintendo prog. running in combination with Papywizard on a Nokia 800/810 . . .

Besides: which OS runs a Nintendo?

But a Nintendo running both would also be ok . . :cool:

Hi Klaus, it looks like you can run a variety of what is called homebrew and its not stuff that you can drink!! it's software on a DS lite, the DS Lite can even run a version of linux!!! "DS applications are generally programmed using C/C++. A popular toolchain is devkitARM" running from a R4 DS card. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nintendo_DS_homebrew Guide to homebrew development for the Nintendo DS http://osdl.sourceforge.net/main/documentation/misc/nintendo-DS/homebrew-guide/HomebrewForDS.html Open source software on the Nintendo DS (Lite) http://www.linux.com/feature/118061

Papywizard and a version of that software running together would make it totally unique :cool: The dream is not over yet:cool::)

Klaus,

How would you imagine that working?

What additional functionality do you feel it would offer?

How would it be useful to you?

I think I know but you may have different ideas.

Hi Andrew!

My only interest would be an extended bracketing - like in Breeze DSLR Remote Pro - and maybe an automated focus-stacking.

Regarding the Nintendo-guy uses the bulb-mode of his Canon i guess Fred could implement this funktion in PapyWizard . . . :cool: .. ?

That would be GREAT . . :):)

Klaus,

1. We hope soon to have an extended bracketing function - which does not use bulb mode - working for all Nikon DSLRs (even those like my D40, the D40X and D60 which lack built-in AEB) controlled by a Windows program called Timelord (from UK software company OxfordEye) under Papywizard control. This will work only with Papywizard (and Timelord) running on a Windows XP system (typically a laptop) with a separate USB wired connection to the camera. If we get it to work then the user will be able to configure an extended exposure bracketing 'preset' for Timelord which will be automatically invoked by Papywizard (via a Python script) at each shooting position in a pano with optional uploading as-you-go of the images to the host PC. We have it working now in a semi-automated fashion, which proves the concept, and soon we hope in a fully automated fashion, including writing a Papywizard data file which will record the bracketing for the APPV2/APG import filter.

2. If we get this to work then we'll try and get something similar working using (a variant of) the Breeze DSLR Remote Pro software for Canon DSLRs - this will depend on getting some co-operation from Breeze but I am hopeful. This would work only with Papywizard (and the Breeze software) running on a Windows XP system (typically a laptop) with a separate USB wired connection to the camera. Automated focus stacking is rather more difficult.

3. The DS-Lite system is interesting but only uses bulb mode and I believe that limits the fastest shutter speed available. But fine for night panos, which is what the guy made it for. If (and I don't know whether this possible) it can easily be triggered via a switch then yes Papywizard could (I think) trigger it via the standard camera port on the Merlin.

4. There's very litle chance of getting this sort of thing to work on Nokia Tablets, because a USB connection is required, because the DSLR makers' SDKs are only available for Windows, and because the Nokia Tablets lacks the compute power needed.

5. It may be possible to get something working on Linux PCs using the gphoto2 library - Frederic is exploring this I think.

6. I believe Olympus offers some SDKs for some of their cameras - if so in theory a third-party developer could create something that would work for some Olympus cameras.

Anyway don't hold your breath, these things will all take quite a while yet.

But if you use a Nintendo, do you have to defeat the Pokemon to take a picture? :)

If you can't drink it, I'm not interested! ;)

It is maybe possible to drive the DS from Papywizard, using bluetooth or any other external link. I don't know exactly how works a DS...

As far as I can see - from the Web - the DS and DS-Lite have Wifi and a games cartridge slot and a microphone but no other means of I/O.

The new DSi seems to have an SD card slot, but no longer has the GBA cartidge slot.

fma38 The DS-lite has an external input device called Guitar Hero guitar grip for slot 2, which allows for external 4 button input, maybe it can be adapted. This is the only thing I could find.
