Hey, my project intention is creating a camera slider for great timelapse videos.
On pretty much every page i found about controlling the slider with an Arduino, the camera is controlled by the Arduino (like here: http://openmoco.org/node/212
The idea is now to do a reverse thing, let the camera control the Arduino and use the monitor of the camera to set it up. Also the synchronisation between camera and slider can be very precise this way (shutter events and stuff). The custom firmware on the camera is called Magic Lantern (http://magiclantern.wikia.com/
) and is based on DryOs, as far as i got that right.
So I ordered an "Arduino Duemilanove" to create a pattern in Windows on how to control the motor for the slider.
First of all, is it possible to send those commands from the camera via USB to the Arduino?
Maybe there are some other people out here intresting in creating this...
Really glad for every answer I get
