USB Camera tethering
I'd like to use my iPad as a screen to get previews of my photos immediately after i take them.
This is something many photographers are looking for, and it seems easy. Well it's not.
What works :
My camera communicates in PTP mode (if it worked in mass storage, there would be no problem) via the USB cable and the Camera Connection Kit.
- Eye-fi card to transmit pictures to an ipad through wi-fi : but it is way to slow
- Use a Raspberry Pi with a wifi dongle between the camera and the ipad : but it seems overkill
When i plug my camera and click, the iPhoto app opens and allow me to select and download the new photo.
I'd like to do this automatically !
I know that gphoto2 works on linux-based OS and is a great tool to do what i want.
Is there a way to compile and make it work on ios ?
Thanks for your help :)
