Raspberry Pi Integration Makes DSLRs Smarter

As any professional photographer will tell you, DSLR battery grips may be large and bulky, but they are a necessity. In addition to providing much needed battery power for hours of photographing, Dave Hunt's custom-made battery grip features a fully-functional Raspberry Pi computer for a variety of neat purposes.The Irish photographer created the device in order to automatically and wirelessly push his photos to his iPad for easy viewing. In addition to instantly sending photos to his iPad, the Raspberry Pi allows Dave to control his camera remotely, perform rapid image format conversions and automatically create time-lapse sequences.

  • I had assumed that it was the Raspberry Pi that he had taken and found a great use for the tiny computer.

    Honestly, I love the Raspberry Pi stories...it's awesome to see what people are doing with a tiny hackable computer.

  • excuseme02Ok..am I the only one who is annoyed that the article keeps referencing Raspberry Pi like its some sort of new software or peripheral product only to find out its just the stupid name for this thing some guy cobbled together?


    It really is just you I assume.

    Anyway.. The Pi just keeps coming up with more and more fun things to do with it and with the new gert board things will just get even more interesting.

    I think the problem is that you don't know much about the Raspberry Pi or you have something entirely different envisioned for it. Personally I think it's pretty neat what he has managed to do with that little thing.
