PiScan with Raspberry Pi 4?

Post by EasyRyder » 03 Sep 2019, 13:42

I'm currently assembling my diybookscanner and trying to purchase the rest of the parts. I want to use PiScan to control the cameras and I'm wondering if the new Raspberry Pi 4 is usable with the software.
Thanks in advance!

Pi Scan does not yet support the Pi 4. I have purchased one and hope to be able to update Pi Scan to work with it soon, but I don't have a timeline for that right now. If you are planning on buying a Pi just to be a scanner, I would say just to get a Pi 3 since I don't expect the changes to the Pi 4 to make much of a difference to performance (Canon point and shoot cameras like the ELPH 180 only support USB 2, so the upgrade to USB 3 on the Pi doesn't help).
