Canon Digital Ixus 500, 5mpix camera. Picture from the net. A favorite of mine for some years.


Synchronize your Canon Ixus 500 camera on linux via bash.


With these scripts you can just type 'synccam' to get files from your ixus 500, 750 or 990 camera to your pc in ~/ixus.

To use as non-root you must have your user in group 'camera'
usermod -G camera -a mio , or such cmd

Install


Here's my neat script, that makes syncing a breeze. You can even hook it up to udev to make it autosync when plugged in. Just make udev run this script automatically and your ixus 500 will auto sync to your pc.

Now if only the ixus 500 lasted. It has manufacturer problems. But such a good camera else. And canons service is sub par. They will not admit the flaw is theirs. But what can you expect from big corps?.

Good news is any 5Mpix camera gives just about as good pictures. It is simply the picture density that matters. Meaning a digimax camera will give you same wonderful pictures!

You can then abandon canon if you don't like them.

Digimax also lasts longer on battery often. No trouble finding batteries.

Well it is hard to chose. So many good cameras. Isn't it?

I got this digimax for free, and it is a super 5mpix camera. Love it.

Script code, type in terminal.. Behold!



# mkdir -p /root/.bin


cat > /root/.bin/synccam << EOF
#!/bin/bash
#sync ixus 500 and 750 cameras to pc

#change USER to your normal username
USER="mio"

ndir="/home/"$USER"/ixus/"$(date +%s)""
mkdir -p "$ndir"
ret=0
cd "$ndir" || exit 5
echo "fetching now... please wait..."
gphoto2 -P && ret=1
echo "deleting all files on cam.."
(( $ret )) && gphoto2 -R -D /
EOF


cat > /root/.bin/synccam.nodel << EOF
#!/bin/bash
#sync ixus 500 and 750 cameras to pc without deleting images from camera afterwards

#change USER to your normal username
USER="mio"

ndir="/home/"$USER"/ixus/"$(date +%s)""
mkdir -p "$ndir"
cd "$ndir" || exit 5
echo "fetching now... please wait..."
gphoto2 -P
echo "fetch done, not deleting files"
EOF


I love my Ixus 500, it's the best pocket / handheld camera I've ever tried. And I've tried Ixus 500, 750, 990IS, Nikon Coolpix 5Mpix - and cellphones (Galaxy S3) (cellphones are not worth using as a camera ever - bad flash and optics) etc.

Ixus pictures..


Taken with ixus 500...









Notice the excellent dark shooting

Few cameras perform as good in the dark.

That's why I'm gonna keep it. They say cameras only get better with age. Like wine or women.

Though not a big fan of the wine or getting intoxicated.




You got your ixus 500 still. How's the non genuine batteries doing these days?
