    Need digital camera experts

    My kernel is 2.6.9-1.667smp (Fedora Core 3) and the camera is Olympus D-535Z.

    When I plug it in via USB, it turns on.
    When I run gphoto2, I get the following:

    root:/tmp/> gphoto2 --get-all-files
    *** Error ***
    Could not detect any camera
    *** Error (-105: 'Unknown model') ***

    For debugging messages, please use the --debug option.
    Debugging messages may help finding a solution to your problem.
    If you intend to send any error or debug messages to the gphoto
    developer mailing list <>, please run
    gphoto2 as follows:

    env LANG=C gphoto2 --debug --get-all-files

    Please make sure there is sufficient quoting around the arguments.
    Now when I try to mount it as a USB device, I am also having issues.
    Nothing related to USB shows in either dmesg or /var/log/messages.

    >From dmesg:

    SELinux: initialized (dev usbfs, type usbfs), uses genfs_contexts

    >From /var/log/messages:

    Mar 8 23:21:42 machine kernel: SELinux: initialized (dev usbfs,
    type usbfs), uses genfs_contexts

    Nothing gets mounted with:

    mount -t usbfs usb /proc/bus/usb
    root:~/> ll /proc/bus/usb
    total 0

    When I loaded the USB driver with
    root:~/> modprobe usb_storage

    In dmesg, I saw:

    scsi6 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices

    More info:

    root:~/> lsmod | grep -i usb
    usb_storage 62857 0
    scsi_mod 112136 5 usb_storage,sr_mod,st,aic7xxx,sd_mod

    But when I try to mount USB, I get nothing like this, which is what I should see:

    scsi6 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
    root:~/> mount -t usbfs usb /proc/bus/usb
    root:~/> ll /proc/bus/usb
    total 0

    What is going on, how can I access the digital camera? I have never used any USB devices on this machine before. Is this camera supported? Could my hardware be too old (from '99)?

    try opening digikam(a gphoto2 gui i think) and selecting camera->add camera->auto detect. it should add a PTP class camera or something like that. if it doesn't it may be that olympus cameras don't have ptp support built-in.

    I think marlowe is on the right track about DigiKam.If you can get your hands on the latest "Linux Format" mag April 2006 it has a series of articles dealing with digital imaging.

    Cool Anyone know about Digital Camera "Remote Imaging"?

    Hello all,
    I operate in a studio environment and need a digital camera with "remote Viewing".

    I want to view the actual digital camera image on the computer monitor
    in real time, so I can change lighting, and position of the subject,
    while looking at what the camera sees, before I hit the remote shutter release.

    None of the experts at the camera stores
    or even at the manufacturers 800 numbers know if this can be done,
    but I have been looking to buy a camera that is capable of "remote viewing"
    and while working in the studio,
    the camera should not "automatically turn itself off
    and lose the remote image over time.

    Can anyone help me?

    Thank you,

    Spirit Rhythms
