Finally received my new camera. My first DSLR, a Nikon D70s with the standard Kit 18-70mm objective. Now trying to familarize with it and take it out to Nuernberg walks with photo opportunities.

I made more of it configurable, but it has like 60 remote controllable configuration options... You can control everything that is configurable on the camera. Only the focal length you still have to pull by hand (at least with my objective).

On the WINE side ... 0.9.11 is out and I built the new RPMs for it. Now also with RPMs for the upcoming SUSE Linux 10.1. I tried debugging Google Earth, or better, where to make it confine the GL output into a subwindow ... But no dice so far.

I also bought a Creative Zen Microphoto for MTP device work. Applied several fixes which should make all Creative MTP devices work now with libgphoto2. Got notified of weird iRiver MTP firmware which violates the MTP protocol (and we need to hack around somehow :(). Coming soon here: MTP meta data retrieval and setting.
