Collection of resources and notes for Canon digital camera hacks, mostly using CHDK.


  • If we end up using an Arduino inside the HSIS balloon, could use the USB remote triggering to take snaps.
  • No point in putting the uC just to take pics, however if we are putting one in for other purposes, we can use it.
  • Could possibly work out a simple control scheme using only one output pin. Looking into it.
  • Send pulses to the camera when certain conditions are met, and make the script set parameters accordingly.
  • Researching it further.
  • Mounting the digicam on the toy car and have the arduino send it signals to take snaps under certain conditions.
