What computer? The Mac version *might* be AppleScriptable.

I am afraid you are way beyond us. You might look into the SDK to do what you want.

Not enough information here....   Your "My Script".  How could anyone know what this is?

 

While there are some coding resources available, and others like yourself who experiment, your vague description gives us little to no information.  Sorry.

Re: connection Canon camera to my script

I wrote script in Python which activates webcam and take picture for the code,

I want to change the webcam to Canon camera but, the code didnt recognize the device as a camera so I can't use it.

I want to know if the camera has option to contact to a python code like webcam."

Hi, tamar20!

 

Welcome to the Canon Community! What you're looking for is the Software Developer's Kit, or SDK. It's only available for certain camera models. If you're in the USA, you'll find more information on the following site: https://www.developersupport.canon.com/

 

If you're outside of the United States, you'll want to reach out to Canon in your country/region for any software developer resources that might be available. Click HERE to find contact information for Canon globally. 

 

We hope this helps point you in the right direction!

Apparently, you would be better off asking the question in another forum.

Yesterday I have posted a link to a well known library/utility used to control cameras over USB, but the post was deleted.

Another option would be to go on github and search for ‘gphoto python’
