This document describes how you can use the Kyocera EZ Digital 1.3 still digital camera on a GNU/Linux system.
The Kyocera EZ Digital 1.3 is a 1.3 Megapixel still digital camera.
I haven't yet managed to get it to work properly on GNU/Linux systems, although theoretically it should work...
Kyocera has made the technical specification of the camera available on their website.
Here's a short description of how you can use the camera with GNU/Linux.
Your Kernel should be compiled with the following options enabled:
<M> Support for USB
[*] Preliminary USB device filesystem
<M> OHCI (Compaq, iMacs, OPTi, SiS, ALi, ...) support
<M> USB Mass Storage support
Depending on your USB controller, you might have to replace the
OHCI support option with the
UHCI support option.
<M> DOS FAT fs support
<M> VFAT (Windows-95) fs support
The filesystem used by the camera is vfat. The USB mass storage devices are treated as SCSI devices by the Kernel, hence you must mount one of the
/dev/sd* devices, usually
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt
rmetc. commands to copy/move the images from the camera to your harddisk. But, as I mentioned above, this doesn't really work for me. The whole system hangs when I try to mount the camera.
Update: Using Linux 2.6.10 it now finally works, I don't know what exactly caused the problems with older kernels.
