He didn't talk about IQ. In term of programming the RPI solution is great, along the various tutorials. I this sense, I find it much more flexible.
"simple webcam or hd-webcam because the image quality of still frames isn't very good" that part makes it a bit less of a good fit, though.
The RPI solution is geeky, perhaps not great. No experience with the Canon SDK, but my impression is that it probably is way more "flexible". The shitty quality you can,t change as it has a fixed lens.
Indeed, I read too quickly and missed this part "... because the image quality of still frames isn't very good".
The RPI option is probably not a good fit if they want good IQ.
<geek_mode>I still think it's the most fun solution ;-) </geek_mode>
