If you have a Canon, i need a favour

Guys,
To make some new software, i need a favour of one of you.
I'm after the timestamp of Canon generated images.
So if one of you could do the following:

Set your cam to the highest framerate of STILL images, and shoot a couple of seconds of stills.

Then, mail me JUST THE *.THM files.
(i don't need the images, just the metadata in the .THM files)

If someone could do so, that'll be great!

Mail them to bouke (at) videotooldhed (dot) com

Thanks!

Bouke

Robbie,
Yeah, burstmode and stills.
(but trash the stills, just the .thm files will do. Shoot Jpeg / black if that speeds things up.)

What i'm after is how the .thm files are timestamped.
Ultimate goal is to get frame accurate sync with video, but for that i need to undestand the time. (Time isn't hard, but i've only got one clip now, and i need to know how accurate it is after the seconds)

thanks,


Bouke

Bouke,

There is another way to find and use all of the information that you may require. Visit Canon's website and check out their DSLR SDK (Digital SLR Software Development Kit).

Here is the url for the Canon USA DSLR SDK:

Good luck,

Neil

Neil,
I know.
But, in therory there is no difference between theory and practice.
However in practice....

That's why i need to test...
