Question buying a new digital camera...


I was told Sony Cybershot digital cameras are
supported by GPhoto.

Can anyone give some feedback about digital
cameras on Linux/slack?

How about Fuji ones or Casio ones?

Any clue ???

thanks =D

Have you visited yet - the latest version supports far more cameras than ever before.

I have a Canon Powershot A20 and after downloading this version and an up to date 'libusb', I'm pleased to say that it works just as easily as under the other OS

I've got a Sony DSC-P5 that works w/ the USB-mass storage and SCSI emulation (I think that's what it was). works great!!

I don't know about gphoto. I just mount the memory stick w/

mount /dev/sd0 /mnt/camera
and then copy the pics to my HD
