I'm considering adding PTP support to CHIMP.

Could any of the ML developers please answer the following questions?

  • How far apart have ML PTP and CHDK PTP grown? Will basic commands like up and reboot work?
  • Does ML PTP support automatically unzipping uploaded ZIP files on the camera)?
  • Are there any other issues that need to be taken into account (e.g. USB remote)?


1. Last time I've checked ML PTP was many years ago. To my knowledge, CHDK's is light years ahead.

2. "make ptpinstall", written many years ago, only uploads autoexec.bin.

3. Probably - contributions welcome.
