"The gPhoto application has matured over the past year into a
full-featured digital camera management utility supporting over 130
of the most common digital cameras."
"The gPhoto project, having painstakingly reverse engineered
most of the cameras it supports, has now moved on to development of
gPhoto2. The first open source digital camera API available
anywhere, gPhoto2 promises to make writing graphical front ends
under Gnome, KDE, or any GUI toolkit a much easier process. The
first such application that has appeared is GnoCam."
"What the original gPhoto lacked in beauty and made up for in
usability GnoCam hits squarely out of the park. With
buzzword-compliant features like drag and drop, preview and folder
support, GnoCam delivers on the essentials of camera manipulation.
It takes those things a step further with a clean Gnome interface
that rivals a lot of the bundled Windows applications you may
already be using."
