Re: TwoCamControl - fast two camera chdkptp photos (Windows)

@Jerzy, if you are able to test a new CHDK version I can try to add support for filewrite task.
I need to know the firmware version of your cameras, after that I'll post a test version to chdk forum.

Re: Mirrorless DSLR for bookscanning

Canon EOS M10 and EOS M3 are built on the P&S codebase, then it is possible to port CHDK for them. Probably, in the future, those models can be supported by spreads, TwoCamControl and Pi Scan.

There are some reports of failures here:...

Re: Camera's no longer working.

That's weird. There are not reports of Canon A1400 bricked by using CHDK.
Could you check the voltage level of your power adapter?

Re: Reconfigure Cards

It's possible to use the serial number to select the camera, e.g.:

Code: Select all
