Re: Photography Projects

Make sure no other program or kernel modu...

Re: Photography Projects

I'm not having any issues sending secondary commands to my Nikon D40. Here's a script I'm using to take 5 brackets photos with the D40. #!/bin/bash # Configure camera for gphoto2 access and later capture: #set capture mode #I'm not sure this step is necessary but ... echo "(2) Switch to capture...

Re: Photography Projects

I have an older DSLR - a Nikon D40 - that does not do bracketed shooting. I'm a big fan of HDR photography but manually bracketing each shot is a challenge. I'm hoping to write a python script for my RPi to do bracketed shooting. The script would read the image sensor via USB cable to the Nikon D40,...

It is back to Back Order today 6/29....and the expected ship date is July 5th. I had a nice chat with Newark/Element 14 agent who was as stunned...

They've got some updated info for you which they're preparing at the moment, and should be dropping in to the forum towards the end of the day. They should be able to answer some of you questions then too. Oh - and Mike says that those of you in Brazil will now be able to order using local parcel p...

Re: Still not got it...

PLEASE read the posts on this subject - there have certainly been enough of them. Ramping volume from 0-500k is a lot of effort, and cannot be done overnight. It not just manufacturing (although ramping to that level does require a lot of organisation, and possible extra factories) - there is getti...

Re: Anyone in the US get a ship date from Newark (Element/14

March 12th was nowhere near an 'early' order ! I never said it was. I was voicing frustration at not knowing at ALL when/if my order would ever ship. hey should be specific and if they can not then say that as well. I would rather be told "we don't know", than have repeated promises of a ...

Re: Anyone in the US get a ship date from Newark (Element/14

Hmm ... I ordered March 12th. Initial email said it would ship in May. Then followup email in April said the end of June. It's June 25th and I have yet to receive any further communication on my order. I expect to be disappointed. It would seem being among the first to order makes no different as to...
