Fujiplay is a program to control Fujifilm digital cameras under Unix/Linux. It allows you to download pictures, upload pictures, and delete them. You can also "press the shutter" from the computer.

Fujiplay has been written by Thierry Bousch using the protocol analysis from Mamoru Ohno, and also some snooping on the serial line. For several reasons, I was not entirely happy with mamo's GET_DS7 software: it was slow (because of Perl) and not very reliable. This is my attempt at writing a download tool which would be simple, fast, reliable and convenient.

The program is written in C for systems more or less compliant to the POSIX and ISO C standards. It is released in the public domain.

Click here to send me a mail. Note that I have only tested this software with the MX-700 digital camera and Linux 2.0.27 with libc5. I'd like to know whether you can make it work, or not, with other cameras and other Unices.
