Sweet build. It looks insanely professional, unlike my single-camera shelf design.
As for the software, I'll look around for something. I'm actually working on a Python script which automagically names pages when you turn them. It uses OpenCV to detect page turns through a webcam, and then increments or decrements the page number accordingly. It's pretty rough, as I'm still looking more into Optical Flow, but it's getting there.
As for the programs, the second one looks like it can work with two cameras. I only have one to test with, so you can't trust what I say
Operating system is no doubt the cause. I have been dodging the linux bullet a long time now. Perhaps ubuntu or some such in the future will work for me. It explains why I could not unpack the file. I could swear, I saw the darn page I downloaded from said windows... sigh...
As for cameras I used the list at http://www.gphoto.org/proj/libgphoto2/support.php
for gPhoto2 and not the one listed for gphoto. I did make the assumption that if they where in the list they where supported. It does NOT come as a surprise that "supported" is different for various cameras. It does list a considerable number of Kodak cameras. Personally I prefer Pentax but I have no digital Pentax as of yet.
Oops.... I see the remote capture doc is for gPhoto2... its what I get for doing this stuff in minutes between other things... so my digital will no doubt no work with this system. Hmm... distressing... ah well... thanks for the info.
You could run Ubuntu in a Virtual Machine within Windows, although it will run a bit slowly. I run Windows in a VM from Ubuntu, so it's not too hard.
I've also heard good things about Pentax, but I have only a single Canon, so I can't say much.
Even if your camera isn't listed, it could still work. That list is updated by people who tested theirs, so if nobody has tried it, it won't be there. Good luck!
