Unsupported Camera Model SONY SLT-A37

Abhishek Anand
Hi ,
First up thank you for the awesome job you guys have been doing. I was pretty excited to chance upon the gphoto package and decided to give it a spin today. Unfortunately the Sony A37 I possess seems to be unsupported  as of this writing.
Could you please help me out with this.

I'm pasting below the results of the code snippets, that were mentioned on the website.

For debugging messages, please use the --debug option.
Debugging messages may help finding a solution to your problem.
If you intend to send any error or debug messages to the gphoto
developer mailing list <[hidden email]>, please run
gphoto2 as follows:

    env LANG=C gphoto2 --debug --debug-logfile=my-logfile.txt --capture-image

Please make sure there is sufficient quoting around the arguments.

pi@raspberrypi:~ $

Hi,

The message reads different, but its probably not obvious.

Basically, "gvfs" , the GNOME virtual filesystem has already grabbed
your camera to offer it in Nautilus as filesystem.

You will need to stop / kill the gvfs gphoto monitor process.

        ps auxw|grep gphoto.*gvfs
to find them.

However, in this mode it will likely only allow downloading images.


Can you switch the A37 internally to "PC Control Mode" and try again?
This is needed for capture on the SLT series.


Ciao, Marcus
