How To Connect a Digital Camera to Linux (v1.2)
Last modified: Friday November 9, 2012

This is a quick primer on how to connect a digital camera and download images from it using Linux. This technique has been tested with Red Hat 7.3, 8.0 and 9 and is likely to work with a variety of distributions. It's been reported to work with kernels as old as version 2.2.25.

These techniques only work if the camera uses the USB Mass-storage driver. Alternatively, if your camera uses Compact Flash (CF) and you have a laptop there is a very easy method to downloading your pictures which is almost the same, and documented below. Cameras known to work with this method over USB include the following:

It is known to NOT work with the following cameras: Cameras that don't directly connected to the USB port with the mass storage driver will almost always work with the gtkam  or gphoto2 programs included in most Linux distributions. You can always use a USB card reader to read from the card directly which works just fine as well. Please make a comment below if you know of other cameras that work or don't work.

Connecting your camera via USB

You can also use one of the handy USB card readers instead of your camera directly. In fact, that's the only way I download my photos any more.

When you do connect your camera it's important to make sure the camera is turned OFF when connecting it as well as turning the camera OFF before disconnecting the camera from your computer. I'm not sure why but the Linux USB driver gets really pissed off otherwise. If you connect your camera and turn it on you should get something resembling the following in your /var/log/messages :

Jan 22 17:21:23 localhost kernel: hub.c: USB new device connect on bus1/1, assigned device number 2
Jan 22 17:21:23 localhost kernel: usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x4b0/0x106) is not claimed by any active driver.
Jan 22 17:21:26 localhost /etc/hotplug/usb.agent: Setup usb-storage for USB product 4b0/106/100
Jan 22 17:21:26 localhost kernel: Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
Jan 22 17:21:26 localhost kernel: usb.c: registered new driver usb-storage
Jan 22 17:21:26 localhost kernel: scsi1 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
Jan 22 17:21:27 localhost kernel:   Vendor: NIKON     Model: NIKON DSC E775    Rev: 1.00
Jan 22 17:21:27 localhost kernel:   Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Jan 22 17:21:27 localhost kernel: USB Mass Storage support registered.
If your output looks like this then you're in good shape. The USB driver will set up "SCSI emulation" on the device. What's most annoying is that nowhere does it tell you which device name was chosen for this. If you don't have any SCSI devices other other USB mass storage devices the device to use will be /dev/sda1 . Otherwise go down the line with /dev/sdb1 , /dev/sdc1 , etc. until you find the correct device name. To find out try to manually mount the device as root:
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
# ls /mnt
dcim  misc  nikon001.dsc
# umount /mnt
Assuming you got this far, you'll want to set up an automatic way of getting to the camera without needing to log in as root and mount it. At this point I want to remind you that it's vitally important to unmount the device before turning off the camera. Also, remember that you need to turn off the camera before unplugging the USB cable.

What I like to use is the automounter for this purpose. I've also set this up for NFS mounts from other servers as well as my CD-ROM and floopy drives. If you haven't used the automounter yet you'll want to edit your /etc/auto.master  file and add the following line:

/misc   /etc/auto.misc  --timeout=30
Adjust the timeout value to suit your needs. My default of 30 seconds works for me. This is how long the automounter will wait before unmounting the device. If you set it too high you'll be waiting a long time before you can safely unplug your camera.

Before you continue make sure to:

# mkdir /misc
to create the special directory the automounter will look at. Then create the file /etc/auto.misc  and put in the following:
# This is an automounter map and it has the following format
# key [ -mount-options-separated-by-comma ] location
# Details may be found in the autofs(5) manpage

cd              -fstype=iso9660,ro,nosuid,nodev :/dev/cdrom
floppy          -fstype=auto            :/dev/fd0
camera          -fstype=auto            :/dev/sda1
Leave out the lines for the floopy and CD-ROM drive if you'd rather not have those devices automounted as well. Now plug in your camera then turn it on. Restart the automounter to load in your new configuration and try it out:
# service autofs restart
# ls /misc/camera
dcim  misc  nikon001.dsc
# chkconfig autofs on  (If you want to make this permanent)
If you set it up you can also test /misc/cdrom  if you have a CD loaded.

Reading CF cards with PCMCIA

An alternate way to download pictures from a digital camera is to use a PCMCIA adapter for your memory card. I know this works great with Compact Flash (CF) cards, I'm guessing it'll work similarly with other media interfaces.

In my experience this method is FAR more reliable. Unlike the USB mass storage driver this driver seems to be quite reliable in Red Hat 7.3, 8.0 and 9. The PCMCIA driver is also a little easier to use as when you plug the card into your laptop you'll get output like this in your /var/log/messages :

Jan 24 13:01:09 localhost kernel: hde: PQI ATA Rev6.0, ATA DISK drive
Jan 24 13:01:09 localhost kernel: ide2 at 0x100-0x107,0x10e on irq 3
Jan 24 13:01:09 localhost kernel: ide-floppy driver 0.99.newide
Jan 24 13:01:09 localhost kernel: hde: 256000 sectors (131 MB) w/0KiB Cache, CHS=1000/16/16
Jan 24 13:01:09 localhost kernel:  hde: hde1
Jan 24 13:01:09 localhost kernel: ide-cs: hde: Vcc = 3.3, Vpp = 0.0
Jan 24 13:01:09 localhost cardmgr[769]: executing: './ide start hde' 
Notice the hde1  in the output above, your device name may be different. That's the file name you will configre in the /etc/auto.misc  file as below:
camera          -fstype=msdos           :/dev/hde1
Once you do that just restart the automounter like you did for USB support above.
# service autofs restart
# ls /misc/camera
dcim  misc  nikon001.dsc
# chkconfig autofs on  (If you want to make this permanent)

Other Useful Resources

I realize most of these are about Red Hat 8.0 but in reality besides the kernel not that much has changed between 8.0 and 9.
Raw Digital Photo Decoding - This guy wrote a great little utility for converting the RAW digital format used by many digital cameras to the standard PPM format. I've used it to process the Canon CRW format and it works, but takes a little bit of playing with the settings to get the colors and brightness right. In my opinion it's almost not worth using the raw format.

Certains cameras are not working with 2.6.x with x<=12, but which worked with 2.6.0-test11 and 2.4.xx with xx<=23. This is all about the usb-storage mount, on various linuxes (SuSE, gentoo, debian, mandrake ...)
Here is a list I gathered (not complete) :
DMC-LC40 ('MATSHITA:DMC-LC40:0x3000' Panasonic DMC-LC40), Nikon Coolpix 2000 (NIKON DSCE2000:0:0:0p1), Panasonic DMC-LC33, Canon Rebel 300D, Argus DC3200, HP Photosmart 720 USB (HP Model: PhotoSmart M407), Sony Mavica CD-1000 (SONY Model: DSC DDX-G2000), LEICA Model: Digilux 1.

The cause may be the misinterpretation of the command "SCSI_REMOVAL_ALLOW" by these cameras : they power off their SD-card instead of the normal action. Then, when asked for the card, the usb-storage module relay this unavailability with the message "mount: No medium found", hard to debug.

There is a patch for linux-2.6.x/drivers/scsi/sd.c skipping this command, at

I use  MDK10.2 and I added the following line to fstab :
>> none /mnt/camera supermount dev=/dev/sda1,fs=auto 0 0 <<
This brings up a folder on the desktop named "camera" which,if I open after connecting and then switching on the camera,  displays the photos. The camera is a Fujifilm S5000.

I'm using a Vivitar ViviCam 3715 in Fedora Core 3 with the 2.6.11 kernel. The camera memory automatically mounts on the desktop. Just plug it into the USB, turn on the camera, and the memory pops up on the desktop. Just copy the images, then turn off the camera and the memory automatically dismounts. It's really easy and convenient.

thank you, a v.useful howto.

This method (with a bit of tweaking as described by collin (23-March-2004)) worked fine for the Casio EX-S100 under gentoo (see details below of tweaks).

$ uname -R
2.6.11-gentoo-r5

$cat /etc/fstab
/dev/sdb1               /mnt/usb                      vfat            auto,owner,users        0 0

(/mnt/usb and the above entry already existed for a flash drive).

I added autofs to start on boot by...
$ rc-update add autofs default

...and the results from dmesg are...
$ dmesg

When I plug in the camera to USB, it turns on, which I take to be a good sign. However lsusb returns nothing.

I have this from dmesg:

Your procedure works fine with my Fuji A205 ?on Debian Woody, bf2.4 kernel, with one slight modification:

I kept getting ?"/dev/sdax is not a valid block device" ?- ?reason was that
the usb-storage module wasn't loaded.

My complete basic procedure (that works) is:
Connect Fuji A205 into USB and switch it on
(In a terminal window): ? ?su to root
/sbin/modprobe usb-storage
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
(images appear as files in /mnt/dcim/100_fuji - copy in the normal way)
When finished: ?umount /mnt
Switch off A205 & unplug

(I'll worry about refinements like automounting and file permissions later)

Method unsuccessful with Sony DSC P-73
Same system OK with P-32
Only difference from the P-72 is the "memory stick pro" bit.

What is memory stick pro? How is it sifferent from the normal memory stick?

YOPER with 2.6.8.1 kernel image
Fujifilm Finepix F700
A piece of cake
Still have to try the supermount thing but i guess it'll be easy.

BTW I think you should speciffy to use the -o option with the mount command to be able to have the right permissions for the everyday user. i.e.  (my specific case)

su -
<$password>
mkdir /mnt/finepix
mount -o uid=1000,gid=100 /dev/sda1 /mnt/finepix

THX & Cheers.

My wife's camera: Minolta DImage X20, Secure Digital memory card. Vector Linux 4.0 (kernel 2.4.22). Works fine as usb mass storage device.

Had to enable usb-uchi and usb-storage in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules.
Created the directory /mnt/camera and made an entry in /etc/fstab to reflect this
/dev/sda1 /mnt/camera vfat noauto,rw,user 0 0
Changed permissions:
chmod 666 /dev/sda1
chmod 777 /mnt/camera

Mounted camera with mount /mnt/camera and the pictures was available (ls /mnt/camera).

This is briefly according to my "real" memory, which can appear unstable at times...  (too much Windows XP I assume, muhaha) :-) :-)

I should amend the comment above to include an additional hoop I have to jump through.  If I have used the camera previously without reloading the uhci-hcd module, I get something like the following in /var/log/messages after connecting the camera via USB:

Mar 28 08:56:15 freak drivers/usb/host/uhci-hcd.c: bf80: host system error, PCI problems?
Mar 28 08:56:15 freak drivers/usb/host/uhci-hcd.c: bf80: host controller halted. very bad

Furthermore, the camera won't mount.  I then turn off the camera, reload the uhci-ucd module via

rmmod uhci_hcd
modprobe uhci_hcd

then turn the camera back on again and everything seems to work just fine.  I have no idea why this is the case.

I recently got a Sony DSC-P32 working under Gentoo with the 2.6.3-gentoo-r1 kernel.  Thought I might relay a gotcha in case it's helpful to other Gentoo users.

I used genkernel to build the kernel and though usb-storage was compiled into the kernel via option

 Device Drivers --> USB support --> USB Mass Storage support

the module was not loaded on boot.  Without it I got a bunch of these in /var/log/messages:

 drivers/usb/host/uhci-hcd.c: bf80: host controller halted.         very bad

To get it working, I did a

 modprobe usb-storage

then added the following line to /etc/fstab

/dev/sda1    /mnt/camera    vfat    user,noauto,umask=0    0 0

After a

 mkdir /mnt/camera

I just needed to plug in the camera, turn it on, then

 mount /mnt/camera

Without the line in /etc/fstab, you can just mount it with

 mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/camera

Then a simple

 cp /mnt/camera/dcim/101msdcf/*.jpg .

got the pics over to my laptop.

I can mount and transfer files as root thus far, which is more than I could do before. I got as far as setting up the /misc and the config's.
Just dont quite understand how to restart the automounter. Is there something Im not reading correctly or do I do something different in the slackware 9.1 distrobution?

I have a vivicam 3340 and it works good as a mass storage device, but the other option on the camera under USB is 'PC Cam' . With that other O$, I could use this camera as a webcam. Baron wrote on Dec 30:
"This also works for HP PhotoSmart 812 but only after setting the USB config on the camera to "Disk" instead of "Camera"."
This must be the same feature as the vivicam, any idea how to make this work? All I know about it is the output is AVI.

Thanks to tips above, Sony P72 cam has connected to my FUJITSU notebook, which has Fedora installed on, via USB port.

Though the special Memory Stick slot, which is probably acting like a PCMCIA, is not working. I have such an message in /var/log/messages when I plug the M.S. in the slot:

This also works for HP PhotoSmart 812 but only after setting the USB config on the camera to "Disk" instead of "Camera". This makes the camera look like a external hard drive to the computer. I believe most HP PhotoSmart cameras have this option and it should probably work on all other brands with the same feature.

Also, on RedHat 9, /var/log/messages does show the SCSI device it picks. In my case, it was sda1:

The command "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt" worked for me.
I'm using a Vivitar ViviCam 3705, on a fresh install
of Red Hat 9 (even before doing up2date).  I haven't
tried the automount system.  'Not sure yet if I want it.

Nikon Coolpix 4300 works fine with RedHat 9 (2.4.20-20.9 kernel). The device shows up as /dev/sda1 (since I don't have any other SCSI device) and can be mounted and the images copied. I have not yet tried autofs.

This works with a Vivitar ViviCam 3615 and Red Hat 9 after updating the kernel to Linux version 2.4.20-20.9 from Red Hat.
