Raspberry PI, could it be of any use?
« on: July 27, 2012, 11:28:50 PM »
I saw this neat piece of hardware being sold for a bunch of euros on the internet and it looks like it can do lots of things thanks to its small size and power consumption.
Do you guys have it? What do you use it for? Can it operate with our Eos cameras somehow without plugging it to a computer?

Yes, we can use PTP to remote control our beloved EOS cameras :)

Well, it all depends on what do you want to do. You can hook up buttons to the rPI either via taking apart an USB keyboard or using the GPIO pins.

Hello,
I'm able to fully control a 5D Mark III connected with usb to a Raspberry and use Eos Utility on a remote Windows :'(  device through a wireless connection whit router( but I think is possible also with adhoc connection).
Does anyone know how to compile "usbip" client side for Android devices ???
