Yeah. I got an A20, after spending a while looking. I think the A40 is
Reasonable resolution (1600x1200), and wonderful image quality, when used
with "low compression" (a max of around a meg a photo). Works fine with
gtkam and gphoto2 (I was impressed at being able to just plug it in, turn
it on, and run "gphoto2 -P" to download everything). Well, on RedHat 7.3
As Joe said, for motion stuff, there is a time delay. Though, it's good
if you have it pre-focused etc. (I was able to get decent action shots of
the girlfriend doing show-jumping, with a little practice). It doesn't
have a built-in battery - it uses 4xAAs, which last about 20mins with the
LCD on (a good hour otherwise).
It has a compact flash slot, which means you can buy yourself a 2G
microdrive, and have thousands of images on it!
To try bring this on topic - are there any tools for doing red-eye
reduction on linux ?
