But the gphoto2 remote page lists a590 as verified not capable of remote capture. Also, no stores here (sweden) are selling that model any longer I'm afraid. Though I am browsing the used market for a590's and a480's (domestic used market, to keep shipping costs down). Have seen a few listed, I'm just waiting for lower prices. I'm still aiming for a full automation system and want ghoto2 for that. The CKDK alternative would need arduino to electrically trigger the cameras which I'd rather avoid getting into. With gphoto a script on the PC would be enough.
BTW nice unexpected swedish connection there! Sorry to hear you haven't picked up the language - but I have quick fix for that
Daniel: ah, market differentiation, makes sense. But such moves would also creates a possible niche for new manufacturer to fill by releasing some low cost point and shoot with PTP and full remote capture features. So let's keep looking.
