I never chastised anyone for not being technical enough - you're probably referring to another poster. And as for whining, well, yes, that's true.:evil::evil::evil::evil:

Hm.. I believe you're right on that point. I must have mixed up the posts and for that, I do apologize. :)

Ditto here as well. I might try gphoto2 on my Ubuntu VM with the 1D4, but I believe it only works on the 1DII and 1DIII. Might try it on the 5D2, but astrojargon works just fine and takes about 10 sec. I forgot to ask Canon for the shutter count when they had it. By time I thought of it, they had it out in Fedex 2 day.

Hopefully the libgphoto2 developers will update it to include the latest models.

You do know there are Windows apps for making bootable Linux flash drives, right?

That is what was done I believe from that *detailed writeup*: take an Ubuntu ISO and running the USB installer on it to dump that all to the USB drive. I already had VirtualBox installed, so I loaded up Ubuntu 10.10 on it. My USB ports aren't being recognized though, I might dig into that tomorrow.

Yeah, I used one (Universal USB Installer) and mentioned it and linked to the homepage of one of them in my little write-up.

Why not a stripped down live CD of your own with gphoto2 installed? You can make your own "Solara Linux"... It's legal, unlike if you try the same with Windows.

Edit: Linux user since 1995... And I'm surprised every day at the new uses that pop up.

Edit 2: I bet- If you make your own Live CD ISO, you will ask yourself along the way, "Why can't I do this stuff with Windows?" ;-)a

I've tried Gphoto2 with my 5D, without success. Gtkam does see my camera but the option ''view camera preference'' is greyed out.

It sees my 5D in PTP mode (don't know what that means) but not in normal mode (which is said to be experimental).

Any idea?

this german forum (external link) lists a few cameras that are supposed to work, or not:

Diese Kameras lassen sich auslesen: 450D, 500D, 550D, 50D, 60D, 7D, 5D II
Diese Kameras lassen sich nicht auslesen: 300D, 400D, 5D http://www.dslr-forum.de …hp?p=7781111&po​stcount=69 (external link), 1D III

i think it's obvious which line is which ;)

the asterisk behind the 5D links to a post where a member points out that the 5D is supported, but does not offer the /main/status/shutterco​unter config path/option.

oh and btw, if someone has an idea how to effectively host a 765mb file, i have a virtual machine image prepared to do the job...

funny quote from the gphoto2 FAQ (external link) on that topic:

3.5.2. Dudes, Windows is the way to go. How do I compile gphoto2 for that environment?

We don't have the money to buy Windows and something like Visual C. Therefore, we can't provide you a gphoto2 for Windows. You have two choices (at least):

* Buy a fast computer, buy Windows and Visual C and some manuals on how to access USB or serial ports on Windows. Send all that including a blank cheque to us (ask for the address on [gphoto minus devel at lists dot sourceforge dot net]).
* Try to figure out how to get gphoto2 working on Windows and send us the patches.

And @TeamSpeed, you are proficient in computers and Linux and yet would think about charging a buyer $25 bucks to do 5 minutes of work to get the shutter count? Really? Okay......moving on to the next seller thank you.

:lol: My thoughts exactly.

Bootable USB stick also didn't work for me, I simply burned it to a CD and it worked.

But too bad the 5D is semi-supported :p

Are you using the USB creator program that comes with Ubuntu or Universal USB Installer? And if the latter, are you enabling the Persistent file?

My German is a little rusty, but here is the asterisk:

The 5D is clearly supported, but the data field "shuttercount" is not functional, either in normal mode, or in PTP mode.

Klar wird die 5D unterstützt, sie hat laut "gphoto2 --list-config" aber das Datum "shuttercount" nicht, weder in normal noch in PTP mode...

The 5D and the 30D (which I have) were comtemporaries... I can confirm the shuttercount does not work for the 30D, as well...
