CCAPI is a RESTful API with JSON-formatted objects, except for the disk storage and the live view content, which use their corresponding formats (JPEG for live view stills), and the live view video itself is sent via RTP.

Does anyone know where I can find information/documentation about the HTTP API calls?

This is pretty cool.

This is the public information so far.

To get the full specification (Ver.1.0.0 so far), you need to join Canon's developer community in your region (the basic level is free, at least for the US and EMEA) and request access to Camera SDKs. This is the instruction for the US. This is the instruction for EMEA.

Wow!!! This is definitely going to accelerate the work of those Magic Lantern wizards. I think this RP is going to bring back the those 5D III Magic Lantern RAW era. Interesting!

Not sure how access to HTTP calls would help Magic Lantern hack the firmware. Can you give us more info?

Canon's own camera connect ap is a bit weak in my opinion in comparison to DSLRcontroller for example.
As this kind of feature will be more and more important in future cameras for a lot of customers it is surely helpful when there will be more people enabled to develop apps to control the camera via WiFi. Canon doesn't seem to have the necessary manpower or people to do it on their own in a way the market expects them to do. As far as I hear the competitors do have much more capable apps available.

I would really like to see the depth of field image stacking feature as well, but I still haven't confirmed if it can save them as raw or not.
Didn't actually shoot the files but definitely testing it later. I just looked it up in the menu and the focus bracketing function is just like exposure bracketing. The camera will save the raw files and you have to "stitch" them in post.

Just got access to the CCAPI spec through canon's developer website. This is really cool. First thing I can think of is a script to automatically download the pictures once you connect to WiFi. I'm looking for a wifi SSD drive as we speak. Would be so awesome to connect it to the camera and back up my pictures out on the field.

Also, you can write really advanced scripts for timelapses.
