Live View for Camera Control & Home Surveillance

With the new Live View equipped cameras, many interesting applications for camera control, wildlife or home surveillance can easily be implemented. However for cameras like the E-410 & E-510 having a single USB combo connector, it is necessary to split the analogue and the digital signals. This can be done by the cable that Olympus offers, using the USB AV/PC-2 Cable.

Whether you need to use a photo cell gate and a reflector, an IR-detector, a RFID system, a touch sensor, I think the use of a BASIC Stamp® Controller is ideal for the communication with the Olympus cameras. The I/O possibilities for the Stamp® includes the 433 MHz ISM Radio, Bluetooth Radio, IR Wireless and Ethernet, so together with the provision of the Software Development Kit for the Olympus cameras, it is possible to implement many interesting applications. If software programming is your table, then the SDK's from the vendors are very handy, you could even let your i.e. Sony Ericsson mobile phone via Bluetooth radio control the camera via the Stamp® Controller I/O.
