Project Description:
Project: Time Slice photography triggering software & data retrieval/organization

Details: I need a software created that can trigger many Canon DSLR still cameras in photo mode at the same time. The minimum number of cameras used will be 48 but may be expanded as needed in increments of 12 or 24. The camera model is Canon t3i.

Due to eventual expansion of cameras utilized for the rig, the system will need to be able to function with additional cameras when they are added to the production logistics.

Ability to control various camera settings via the software is desired (primarily the ISO setting and shutter speed). The system should be able to adjust each camera's trigger timing individually - in case a camera is firing too soon or too late.

After triggering, the system will need to retrieve the images from each camera and name/organize them sequentially into a chronological sequence assigned by camera number in corresponding position (example: camera 1 = IMG001, camera 2 = IMG002). It would be preferred that the system creates a folder for each set of sequenced images. I am open to your suggestions for file labeling for sequences after the first image set - probably an double digit alphabetic character assigment (example: first set begins with AA_IMG001, second set begins with AB_IMG001, etc).

The interface does not need to be pretty - just needs to work. It could be all text, numbers and tables with simple prompts...

I am open to utilization of Raspberry Pi, Windows, MacOS, etc. for the system or whatever supplemental hardware you may feel is required.

A quote from their website: "Gigabyte ethernet networking system, the fastest we could find, to make sure we have as few bottle necks as possible.

The trigger system has its own built in onboard computer system, using the latest Eprom chips, and hand coded in the same way as the computers on your car work. it is not possible to build a rig that can think fast enough using Windows or OSX, so we built out own!"




Canon SDK will likely be needed. Here is a direct link for Canon SDK download request:
