Considering Spider and USB host for a project, but


#1

I am considering using spider with usb host adapter for a project that uses PTP protocol. Looking in the manual I see support for HID, serial, and mass storage. Will it be a problem to use with PTP protocol? Thanks in advance.

We have actually developed PTP libraries before but after few months of hard work we realized that all cameras use vendor specific commands to do anything useful and so implementing PTP was a waste of time :frowning: It never made it to the release SDK for this reason.

Welcome to the community.

Thanks Gus. I was just reading a discussion from a year ago about that. It is true that camera manufacturers did not make it easy for us. There is a lot of model specific information available now that could ease the pain if the basics of the protocol is working.

Happy thanksgiving and thank you for taking the time to reply on a holiday.
