Canon EOS RP - wifi control #42850
Hi all, I recently purchased one of the new Canon Mirrorless Full Frame cameras (Canon EOS RP). The camera connects and can be triggered (to some extent) via USB using gphoto driver, but no images are transferred and it seems to continue capturing photos even after the Sequence Queue has completed. Because it is such a new camera, it looks like gphoto drivers may have not caught up yet, so ill just wait until this happen.

The main reason for this post is the potential for control and capture via WiFi. The camera has the ability to tether via wifi (in either Station mode or Access Point Mode) which means one less cable to get in the way. gphoto has no support for this yet (apparently they are in the process of writing something for this), but the potential is huge.

Lots of trial and error, mainly error, but in hindsight, it was easy!!!
