Does anyone know of a program (command line is fine) that can be used to control serial port only cameras from OS X? (Using a USB to serial port adapter.)
I have an old Linux (as in 10 years) PC (held together with strapping tape) that uses gphoto2 to control a Nikon CoolPix 800 over the serial port, and I'd love to get the same thing working under OS X so I could get rid of that computer. I was hoping gphoto would just compile on OS X, and maybe someone (like Fink or Darwin Ports) would have a binary even, but no luck on either count. (If you can point me to a working port of gphoto you would make me very happy.)
So I went looking for something easier. It looks like Cameraid used to do this sort of thing under OS 9 but dropped serial port camera control under OS X.
So, anyone know of a current solution? What I would really love is something that does for serial port cameras what EvoCam does for my iSIght. (In my dreams.)
