My New Sony Camera and Ubuntu Linux

Saturday, 01 April 2006

I bought a Sony DSC-H1 last month. I took the new camera out for a spin in Goa. I had written earlier that, the camera works well with Windows XP. And, Ravi lost no time in pulling my leg over it ;). I'm glad to report that It works great with Ubuntu Linux too!!

Anyway, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. Here you go :

Seriously, if people are still snickering at Linux Users as hobbyists , it is time to wake up and smell the coffee.

Grrr... Sony ships some image manipulation software along with the Camera. called the Picture Package. And it is the most lame-assed imaging software I've laid my eyes upon. Looks like its written in Flash. yeah! go figure...

Anyway, its not available on Linux and I'm glad for it. I use Gimp anyway.
