How to get unbelievable functionality out of the cheap point-and-shoot
Canon photo-camera by installing CHDK and scripts onto it.
You will be exploring the possibilities and limitations of CHDK while
doing fun small projects individually or together; acquire skills necessary
to write and debug small programs for the camera; mastering your own
remote shutter release, battery packs and other hardware without risking
damaging your camera as well as to repairing (seemingly) defective ones;
making videos from photographs using free software; compiling programs,
and benefiting from the situation where 15 hacked cameras meet together.
(Syncing all cameras and arranging some fast rugged 'matrix' shot,
CHDK (Canon Hack Development Kit) is a widespread unofficial software
add-on for cheap digital CANON compact cameras that can get unbelievable
functionality out of them: Shooting in raw, automating camera actions with
scripts, making time lapse videos, super-fast motion detection (able to
catch lightning strikes), extremely short and long exposures, syncing two
cameras for stereo photography, rugged film scanning, luminography -
painting with light, microscopic photography/depth-of-field stacking,
book scanning, aerial photography, stop motion animation, bracketing/high
dynamic range, syncing many cameras, using as text file reader, games,
communication with other equipment..
The workshop aimed at:
15 experimentally working (anti)-artists/-photographers/-animators/
-movie makers/-sexy models, amateur astronomers, those who
are not-so-technically versed and experience frustration when
running into computer problems and those who could do this
on their own, but would like to do it with us.
