I just used gphoto2 on ubuntu 9.10 to download images from my D7000. It worked fine,
even though the D7000 isn't listed as supported. Is this simply a matter of not having the
appropriate ID codes for the 7000, or are there other issues (for example, features beyond
simply downloading photos) that need to be added on a model-by-model basis?
I'm very much a gphoto newbie, but if there is anything I could do to help support
the D7000 I'd be happy to try. I have done some development in C on linux
(https://sourceforge.net/projects/emc/), but I don't know your codebase, etc.
I certainly can provide lsusb listings and such, as well as test things.
