6D Feature Request: Web Server
« on: November 26, 2013, 09:11:47 AM »
I sent this message to canon earlier today, what do you guys think? 

Nice to have?  overkill? it's already there and I just missed it?




Dear Canon, could you please add a WebServer to the cameras OS.  This could be as simple as:

GET /
# Gives the list of photos



GET /IMG_00001.cr2
# Gets one photo



Nice to have but not needed out of the gate:
DELETE /IMG_00001.cr2

Seconded.  I've been wishing I could write an app for my iPhone to grab pictures off of the camera over Wi-Fi and back them up.  If it provided an httpd service and advertised it with DNS-SD, that would be pretty trivial to do.

Bonus points if you can convince them to maintain their IBSS Wi-Fi network while the camera is asleep.

Maybe a good first step would be to have the Magic Lantern guys implement this.

CamRanger e.g. allows you to grab images from your camera to your iPhone/iPad. Then you might synch them with DropBox or even iCloud...
I don't think Canon will spent any efford on this idea, though nice to have.
WiFi might be standard soon (not on magnesium alloy bodies) and onboard tools to synch might help to upload them somewhere...

While on the surface that sounds like a fantastic idea, thinking about it this is a major security nightmare type of feature, ESPECIALLY the "delete" part.

You would most certainly have to add some sort of authentication to the scheme, and I think things start getting expensive hardware wise once you go down that road.

Well, how does the current WiFi controls work? There isn't some kind of authentication first? Since it's an Ad-Hoc P2P WiFi network, if you use decent security (WPA2 w/Password) once you're on it it's likely you. And then turn it off when not using it. You don't want to drain the battery anyway, do you?
