This is a feature request to allow movie recordings by Canon 5D Mark III to the CF/SD Card to be initated and stopped via libghoto2.
At the moment there doesn't appear to be a way of doing this with the 5DM3. There are libgphoto2 functions to control the remote release but this only activates the camera's half-press auto-focus/metering phase and full-press causes the camera to snap a photo. Nothing appears to cause the camera to initiate/stop a recording.
NOTE: Configuring the camera to use the shutter button in addition to the start/stop button to activate movie recording still does not allow remote release op to initiate a recording.
