multican is a Canon EOS class camera remote control utility.
multican is able to remote control 300D, 350D, 30D, 20D, and 5D cameras and can be scripted to control up to six attached cameras.
Which functions are supported?
Several remote control functions are available in scripts, they are:
- setting shutter release speed (Tv)
- setting aperture size (Av)
- setting ISO sensitivity
- releasing shutter (currently only allows to store the image on CF)
The timing in the script strongly depends on the camera type and CF card which is used to do shooting. This is to be tested by multican user himself. If too short times are described in the script, the communication may hang, may skip some commands. Thanks to camera image caching, the shooting rate could be set under 1s if only several images are takes since the most of the EOS camera models contains an image cache, so that the images are stored into a queue and written to the CF lately.
The known bug in this multican release is that cameras need to be switched off and on again when a scripted sequence is finished and a new one is to be done. This is likely caused by the fact that the communication is not correcly terminated in the actual multicam release.
