    After my Sony digital still camera broke, I’m thinking about getting a new Cannon camera. I’m thinking about this one. If I got it, would I be able to animate with it, or what? Would I be able to get live feed through my camera with this one? Thanks,

    The A610 looks good because it has all manual control. Whether it is remote controllable via the SDK and Haukinger’s software, he should be able to tell you. The Stop Motion Pro website doesn’t list any specific models, maybe that means all Canons work, but I don’t know.

    Not all Powershots have the full manual mode, which is absolutely essential for animation. I think that one does, though.

    The A610 is not listed on the Canon developer-site, and dpreview.com says it has no remote-control
    You should look for one of those:
    Digital IXUS, Digital IXUS 30, 300, 330, 40, 400, 430, 50, 500, 700, i, i5, II, IIs, v, v2, v3
    PowerShot A10, A100, A20, A200, A30, A300, A310, A40, A400, A510, A520, A60, A620, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, G1, G2, G3, G5, G6, Pro 1, Pro 90 IS, S1 IS, S10, S2 IS, S20, S30, S40, S45, S50, S60, S70, S80.
    For these, there’s an SDK available, either the one I use or a special one for A620 and S80. Be aware that not all cameras support all of the SDK’s functions…

    High Tower,

    stay away from the A610 for brickfilming. As Haukinger said this one is (for some stoopid reason) not remotely operatable. Its a very fine cam though… I’ve got mine about a month ago. 🙂 Its just not fit for brickfilming. 🙁

    I might buy a used A70 or A90 just for filming, if I will find time and space for brickfilming again.

    Previously, I have worked with a security camera with interchangeable lenses.
    http://www.nextworldstudios.com/tlc/ind … age004.jpg
    It’s a 4.0 to 16mm zoom lens, and I was able to get it really close to the minifigs, about half an inch. But the quality was down on what it should be.

    I’ve seen films in the directory that were made with the QCP4000 that looked better. I think it may have been the codecs I was using to encode it.

    Thanks guys for helping me out.
    I’m thinking about the A520 does your software support this camera? Thanks,

    So I understand this program is not available for download yet?
    Also, it only works with Canons I understand as well. Correct?

    @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…

    Okay great, I’ll save up for the A520. I am guessing thiss software is free?
