Our local branch of Jessops was very happy for me to go in with my
netbook and try the Canon EOS that my sister was going to buy.  I did a
bit of research on the Canon web page and on the Ubuntu forums, and
found out that it should work well provided I installed gphoto.  Canon
EOS range do not mount as a mass storage device, instead they use a
standard that gphoto can work with.  I got the impression that gphoto
provides an interface for just about all types of camera.

Going in to Jessops with my laptop proved this out.
