Ahhh dang, i think i have finally reached the final dead end.
I don’t think there is a way to
A) Remotely wake up the theta
B) trigger it to take photos
in any kind of autonomous (especially low-power) way
In my mind i could have used the Keyboard stroke trick + the PTP of the rpi, BUT the OTG cable needs to be connected the opposite way for both of these approaches (which is bizarre to me, i always thought the OTG cable was just the 4 wires going to a different header, but for some magic reason it seems to make a difference!)
Has anyone successfully woken up the camera with a Pi-zero’s bluetooth, and then triggered it for photos?
ahhh i might have to abandon the Theta as a possible camera for this, which is too bad because it definitely seems feasible, but there are strange road blocks at every corner it seems
