Only if you save again as jpeg. If you save it as bmp or png or whatever, it won’t get lossier.
SD1000 is not compatible with CSMC, as it doesn’t support remote-capture.
Anyway even if it did, you wouldn’t want to use it if it doesn’t support manual exposure (in remote mode) as suggested by the error-message. Maybe CSMC should be a bit more verbose here
Hi all !
A new update is available (finally ;)) ! I’ve added a bunch of new features, which you hopefully find useful.
Among these are:
* Live-histogram in viewfinder
* Settable image quality and size
* Quick preview to review last few frames
Have fun !
I’ve uploaded a new version. This one finally has multi-level-onion-skinning among other features… and it might be a bit harder to crash it now
Multi-level onionskinning will come in the next version, including zero-level (turn it off).
Image size is a nice idea, I’ll have a look at the sdk-documentation and add it, too.
Exposure settings are there in plenty, but not sorted by exposure time but the internal 16bit-int that represents each setting. Scroll down and you will find those…[Read more]
I’m still missing the constant-frame-rate-playback-feature, but everything else from my todo-list in the opening-post is in.
I improvised something like a webpage here.
Might be a bit slow though, it’s dsl-upstream only…
@High Tower: Yes, the A520 works. I’ve got one myself.
@Ticket: Yes, no download by now. Yes, only works for Canon (non-EOS).
Maybe I get an alpha-release ready about easter…
Ok then it’s the the camera, not the sdk. I wonder what about the S2 for example. It has 12x zoom… in 7 steps ?!
The QC4000 has no zoom at all, so 7 steps are a big improvement.
Autofocus is poor in tele-macro, you can’t get closer then about 30cm… but distortion is much higher in wide-macro.
A new screenshot…
Now I have controls for shutter-speed, aperture, white-balance and autofocus-mode. And a button to start the auto-focussing-process, not to mention a zoom-slider It’s not continuos but has 7 zoom-settings. Another limitation of the SDK, I think.
A problem with manual focus might be, that you never know whether you are in focus or not until you actually capture a frame. So manual focussing would not be very useful, BUT I would like to be able to restore the af-state, in case something unpredictable interrupts your shooting.
I made a screenshot.
The live-feed looks horrible compared to my QC4000, but the captured frames are ok. The bad thing is you have to rely on the autofocus and have no chance of knowing wether the cam got it right or not before shooting a frame. But once you have it focussed as you like, you can lock the af. You can’t save or restore it…[Read more]
Yes, it’s for windows. The SDK is available for windows only… using it is quite simple actually, you have a function to ‘connect’ to the camera and put it into remote-capture mode. Then you have another function to activate the live-feed. That comes in standard windows-DIB-format, so you only need to bitblt it to the screen… Screenshots follow…[Read more]
