About

The Agfa CL20 is a fine camera. Unfortunately it wasn't supported by Linux for a long time. A few years ago some guys found that it should get what it deserves... and thought "let's write a driver".

This site reflects the current state of affairs and achievings.

Status

The gphoto patch works pretty well. CompactFlash cards are supported, while the internal memory is not. Video streamin mode does work now (even though only part of the image is grabbed, see here). The CL20 actually makes a very decent webcam.

I'm shutting down the mailing list because it is not used since a long time, and receives only spam.

Michel Xhaard's spca5xx driver makes the CL20's video streaming mode work! Now it can serve at a webcam. See the mailing list archive for details.

The CVS has been converted to a Subversion repository. See the link "CVS/SVN" on the left.

Linus Larsson has tried the CL20 driver with a CL30 camera, and found that it does not work. He has started writing a new driver, see this posting.

The disk in my "kitchen network appliance" hosting the CVS broke down. Sorry that it had been unavailable for some time now. I have set it up from scratch on another, more reliable machine. See the CVS page for the new location of the repository.

The LDACTF (Linux Driver for Agfa CL20 Taskforce) plans a congress in winter 2002, taking place in Finland. ;)

The first, historical picture has been transferred from an Agfa CL20 to a linux machine!   More success stories are underway! :-)
