Folks,

 

I made a drawing on tethered DSLR (in the example Canon EOS DSLR) functional diagram.

 

 

DSLR_tether1.gif

 

Some keys:

PTP  industry standard (lower level) Picture Transfer Protocol

SDK: software development kit (in this example, EOS SDK) which is a higher level camera interface (as camera in abstraction)

(a), (b), and © combined together as part of the Canon overall "EOS Utility" installed software package.

 

Of course, multiple combinations and permutation possibilities...

 

Clear Skies!
