If the installation seems a bit difficult, I plan to make available a disk image for the
beagleboard that can be put on a memory card and run directly on a Beagleboard.
+=== Functionality
+
+KAPture offera a web interface to the camera. The intenden use is to have th camera and a small linux computer (beagleboard) on a kite. The linux computer has a usb WLAN adapter configured with an adhoc network. On the ground, using a standard phone, you can connect to the adhoc network and capture images using buttons on a web page. Currently KAPture has the following functionality:
+
+* Capture an image
+* Capture many images automatically, continuously updating previews
+* Download previews and fullsize images
+* Automatic conversion of RAW images to JPEG for browsing
+* Automatic scaling of images to save bandwidth
+* Delete all images on camera
+* Delete all images on linux computer
+* Change camera settings such as image format (RAW/JPEG/compression), aperture etc. This is still a bit sketchy but works well for many settings. Many times the availability of a setting depends on which mode the camera dial is in.
+* Browse images captured during the session
