Connect Nikon D3300

You connect your Nikon camera to your Linux box and nothing happens. It isn’t recognized and it isn’t attached as a mass storage device.

Well, try a different approach. Instead of trying to connect to it as if it were a disk, try to use PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol) enabled software to get the images.

Create a directory for you pictures, change into it, then run:

  • gphoto2 –get-all-files

Note: It is two short dashes, not one long dash before get-all-files. Page formatting seems to change that.
