I have a Canon PowerShot S1 IS
I can take photos with my camera through gphoto2 - however one issue
I've not tracked down is that I need to be root to be able to access
I'm sure it's a permissions thing somewhere, but sudo is my friend and
I don't transfer that many images and . . . well, once it did what I
wanted I stopped chasing it down, tbh.
