digital cameras


I want to buy a digital camera, like maybe Nikon Coolpix or Sony
The trouble is that linux drivers don't seem to exist for the latest models. For example in gphoto, the latest Coolpix is 995.

Is gphoto _the_ collection of drivers? ie, if it doesn't exist there, it doesn't exist anywhere?

2.1.0 should support many newer cameras - if you go to www.gphoto.org and download the latest version, the list of supported cameras will increase.

Most digital cameras are mass-storage devices. This means they works exactly like a hard disk or cd-rom.
The filesystem will most likely be a FAT32, so you can mount it like any other FAT32 filesystem.

I know this is an outdated thread, but I'm searching for similar questions..

But as to your statement quoted, I believe is incorrect.
Mine mounts as VFAT under MDK 9.1
