Hey guys, fishbowlbob here, and recently I have gotten my hands on a PowerShot A520 canon camera. Now, it came with a frame capture software, but to put it mildly, I get nowhere NEAR the options I have on the camera if I were to just point and shoot, obviously pointing and shooting would result in jumpy camera, (I’ve tried). So, does anybody know of a FREE capture software, not stop motion software, though if you have one that would be great, where I can control focus and white balance??? I have looked and have found zilch. :(
Thanks,
Fishbowlbob

Just curious… are you talking about being able to connect your camera to your PC and control the shots from the computer?

If you put a delay (2 secunds?) on the trigger button. that should help against the bobbing of the camera. I also found that having a remote for the camera helps.

You could try to download the camera manual before you buy and see if it have that sort of USB interaction… thing.

Some of the new DSLR cameras (e.g. Sony Alphas) have an infrared remote that you just point at the camera… no physical connection. Of course, a DSLR is more expense but then you can play with better lenses.
