Many digital cameras can be controlled by computer, even by linux. A
Canon PowerShot for example (I know this because I investigated using my
PowerShot for time lapse but it's not one of the models that supports it).

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the
right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
