Hi, I've been googling for this and haven't found much, was hoping perhaps the community here could help! Thanks in advance.
I am an experienced programmer and less experienced rc pilot and am having a great time getting my new ArduCopter Hexa (3DR) flying. I am eager to connect a Canon EOS - hopefully the 4ti, but currently I have the 3t - and get as much control as I can. It occurs to me it should be - theoretically - possible to get live FPV from the Canon, through the lens. As well as focus, shutter and zoom control. And of course, the roll and tilt control that comes with the camera gimbal, which I am about to order.
Is anyone working on software to interface the Canon series to ArduPilot? Does it exist? How are people doing this?
Also, was thinking to buy the 3DR camera mount for $150 - which I believe includes servos. Any recommendations regarding camera mounts? Is 3DR's good enough for a DSLR - and is the native stabilization effective? Or is it better to buy something else?
Thanks very much for you thoughts on this.
