Re: newbies Digest, Vol 75, Issue 11

Florian,

The DIY book scanners have figured out many ways to trigger simultaneous photos. Here is the forum where they discuss the software and electronics. 


The Canon Camera software is called CHDK, and it is a non-damaging firmware modification that runs from an SD card.

There are many other ideas here, from servo motors pushing triggers to wiring to the cameras. Some of them may be of interest to you.

I know CHDK - I would be nervous about mechanical issues. Using
the DSLRs would be quickly coming to the shutter release limit. And -
mounted to the car bringing a lot of mechanical shocks and vibration.

I'd solder wires to the release buttons and use some relais to trigger
cameras. But while moving, a 200ms shutter release delay would break
mounting a 360° image from it i guess.
