How to program a camera?


I was wondering if anyone could tell me what I should be looking into when trying to find out if I can program a digital slr. I'd like to add some of my algorithms to something such as the new panasonic luxer camera. What I really need access to is the fspeed, lighting sensors etc.

I've had almost no luck in finding how I can program these. I'm going to phone and camera manufactorers hoping to find sdks. Am I going down the wrong route? Should I be looking at the people who provide the sensors for the camers. Right now I'm assuming that the camera manufactorers panasonic, kodak etc.) create their own sensors.

Any help appreciated.

It's not clear from your description on whether you want to change the program that is on the camera itself of if you want to write a program that runs on your computer and interfaces to your camera.

If you are talking about the former (running your program on the camera), look into the forum specific to your camera, as it's going to be a hack.

On the other hand, if you want to write a computer software to interface to the digital camera, read our "SDK" forum.
