    This is pretty innovative.

    This photographer used Devkitpro to create his own interface from his Canon DSLR. He was sick of bringing his laptop around everywhere he wanted to shoot, so he utilized the DS's compact and "instant on" nature. Features include: HDR intervalometer-based shot bracketing, remote shots in bulb mode, as well as a sound-based “Clapper” control. I do not know what these mean, but the individual tools for doing this kind of stuff run for over $100 USD each. This is very cool indeed!

    I'm still stuck on how we got the camera connected to the DS through slot-2.

    But yeah, pretty mindblowing work there.

    If he had an N-Card he could have used the Slot-2 USB connector.

    Did you know the source for the N-Cards firmware along with Slot-2 I/O have been released?

    That is pretty nice! Never thought it would be possible, but I wonder if this works with my 40D.

    Wow. That's pretty amazing. I always bring cameras like those around when I go on road trips and such. They're amazing. I think I might even purchase one just for the sake of it being portable.
