Digicam and tools


I'm going to buy myself a digital camera and I need some advice about it. What camera should I buy? I was thinking of buying a Canon because I got some experience of using it. What tools do I need for it?

As far as a camera goes, buy what you will be happy with. Check out www.megapixel.net or www.steves-digicams.com for evaluations . There isn't much in the way of software that you need. I use a card reader to pull the images off to my computer. With this it just mounts as a removable drive. You can get these for just about any type of media such as CF, SD, MS, you name it. For tools, gqview is a nice image viewer, Gimp is the best editor. I am not familiar with any album tools as I don't use them.

Any other ideas LQers?

i suggest you go here and look at the list of supported digital cameras, besides libphoto2 & gphoto2 i dont think there is any other backends that support digital cameras in Linux...

there are a few front end GUIs and the only one i use is gtkam...
