SQ905 issues again.
I run a Mitek CD30P as many of you know,
which has intermittedly worked on and off
with the 2.1.2 drivers, but not with the
The latest debian release version of the
package does not download photo's at all,
though 2.1.2 cvs versions did so for a while.
2.1.3 drivers download photos get a segfaut
and the images are a little wierd colour and
image distortion wise.
I rebooted to windows (a rare and ghastly
process, something I just hate doing) and
downloaded the photos fine, with little to no
distortion beyond the norm for my poor photo
taking skills and the cheap componentry of
this bargain camera.

This version of gphoto2 is using the
following software versions and options:
gphoto2 2.1.3 gcc, popt,
exif, cdk, aa, jpeg, readline
libgphoto2 2.1.3 gcc, EXIF, no
libgphoto2_port 0.5.1 gcc, USB,
serial without locking, no ltdl
I have recently added some lights to my case,
and have taken some photos of it for testing
Each image should be a non-compressed 640x480
There are eleven photo's taken and gphoto2
outputs them to ppm format. I will jpg the
first three and compress them to a tar.gz
file and name it linux-photos.tar.gz. I will
take the first three of the windows outputted
bmp files and do the same, putting the
outputted jpg files into
windows-photos.tar.gz file. Attaching both.
I have also run a gphoto2 --debug summary on
the device and have tar.gz'd the output
attaching that as gphoto2debugsummary.tar.gz
Thankyou once more for your fine efforts with
this camera. A friend of mine and I are
hopeing to write more complete drivers for
webcam delivery of this camera, a project
limited work has been already accomplished
and then handed to us.
The project we are undertaking is based at;
Due to a great deal of e-mail being sent to
me due to a public letter I posted regarding
wishing to find linux based drivers for this
camera, I have decided to update that letter
and have placed it here;
which points people in the various directions
of gphoto and our sourceforge site.
Thanks for such a great job guys. People with
any expertise or knowledge regarding the
SQ905 based camera's and who wish to help us
amataurs attempt to make a webcam driver
which will compile on 2.6 based kernels,
please don't hesitate to contact me.
