Subject: Control Canon EOS DSLR camera with Matlab

Hi all

I am doing an experiment using a Canon EOS DSLR camera. I want to control it with matlab.

There is a toolbox for canon cameras but it does not support EOS DSLR cameras.
http://www2.cs.uh.edu/~somalley/camerabox.html

Do you have any ideas about how I can do that?

Thank you very much!

Hi Peter,

I have been trying to do the same thing.
My solution was to make an arduino remote for my canon SLR using the following guide.
http://www.instructables.com/id/Remote-Canon-DSLR-Video-Trigger/step4/Arduino-Code/

I then connected to arduino via USB-serial through matlab so I could send a command to take a picture.

I hope this helps if its still relevent.

Hi Sam,

Thank you for your help. I am using a USB camera instead now which can be easily controlled by matlab. But your suggestions are very helpful. We may try it later!

Thanks.

Peter
