On the three occasions in the last four years I have purchased a
camera from a high street store I made a show of taking along a laptop
and ran from a live CD in the store and asked first to see if it was
recognised. On one occasion, since I obviously had a very honest face
(and a credit card handy) the store manager let me run a shop display
machine with a live usb sick with Ubuntu to test the camera. I used
canon cameras, and they were recognised although I think a particular
transfer mode had to be chosen. In one case it was not easily
recognised - maybe the shop guy did not know which menu to use, anyway
I actually did not buy that canon model for that reason, I bought a
slightly earlier model, which did work for me ok. I thought it was
worth it to get information and to make a point....
However, back at the ranch, I never conect the camera at all, I always
simply remove the SD cards and use a card reader. Much faster and
simpler too. :-)
