I'm trying to get gphoto to read my 7D but can't. I get a error 105, unknown model, using "--camera=MODEL. I plugged in my 20D and it see's it, also I see the photo's on the 7D in Shotwell. Using the command line in post-1 it returns "Label: Camera Status Information", nothing else. Gphoto2-2.4.11-1 and Fedora 16. Tried twice with same results.

Installed on my laptop and worked great. Desktop is an older machine.

It's just a GUI for gphoto2. It isn't really better, and it doesn't really replace the functionality of gphoto2.

Question, is the gtkam command available at the last steps without having to download/install additional packages?

It's an additional package, but it's nice in that arcane command lines don't have to be entered.

If copying in 2-3 commands (word for word) is too difficult, then I apologize for the moderately difficult tutorial--but plenty of people have followed the walkthrough without problems or complaints so far. No offense intended of course--the argument just seems kind of silly... it's not like there's any room for error. If you follow the steps line by line and have an internet connection, it really can't go wrong.

No shutter counts!!!
Camera is detected with ~$ gphoto2 --auto-detect

I don't think that it is supposed to work on a 5Dc.

This is correct--there is absolutely no way to get an actuation reading for a 5D mk1. Everything has been tried. The only option is to send it to canon for a repair history and shutter count reading.

They shouldn't charge you for that. Paying the $10 to ship it should be all it takes.

Well the install of Fedora to a usb stick went perfectly, and the install of gphoto2 said it completed. Using the shuttercount command it returns Label: Camera Status Information

And that's it. I was able to download pics off the CF card from the attached camera with shotwell so I know the OS see's the camera. :confused:

Steve

Spent the time to install Ubuntu on an old desktop, can't get gphoto installed properly, too many different errors to even bother listing. So I go back to the T-60 I installed Fedora on via the most excellent instructions provided by moko, re-installed gphoto2, and it still doesn't return any shutter count result, yet it can -auto detect that my 40 d is attached...


Regards,
Steve

Which camera are you trying to get the count for? It seems like you're checking a camera that isn't supported. For the 40D, you could just use EOScount or 40Dcount.

This method is primarily for checking several of the newer bodies, like the t3i, 60d, 7d... Other, older bodies (minus the 5D) are supported by other methods.

Also, there appears to be this hasslefree method which was recently posted:

I haven't tried it myself--I just know from firsthand experience that I've gotten readings for my 7d/60d using gphoto2

About what i post earlier (about canon 5Dc)......here some considerations/advices with a guy on another board:

"
Run first this commandline command with your 5D attached:
> gphoto2 --list-config --debug --debug-logfile=x1.log
>
> Then take 10 pictures with your 5D (just by pressing the shutter ;)
>
> The reattach it to the computer and run this commandline command:
> gphoto2 --list-config --debug --debug-logfile=x2.log
>
>
> After that, two files should be created, x1.log and x2.log, which
> are the debuglogfiles ... Attach them to your reply.

Here the link to what gphoto2 says after: gphoto2 --list-config --debug --debug-logfile=x1.log command
that's nothing......
After shooted 10 pics after: gphoto2 --list-config --debug --debug-logfile=x2.log command
same identical response......
When software autor expects to fix 5D classic??

"
"
have you looked for the x1.log and x2.log file? (Should be in the folder you had opened when executing the command, judging from your screenshot it's in /root/)


I don't think the developers can fix your issues without your logs.

"
"
Well. The Fedora OS i used is resident on a CD rom. I'm a Windows user.
So i think that Fedora doesnt write nothing in the root, since the root is supposed to be the cd-rom.......isnt correct?
There's a possibility to change the command gphoto2 --list-config --debug --debug-logfile=x1.log to store the logs into another root? I.e. C:/ ? So i can read it onto windows?

"

About this last one, any solution?
