I've not personally played with Kamera yet, so I can't vouch for its 
effectiveness. That being said, if you built the port, it should work 
just as well on PC-BSD as it would building the system from scratch out 
of ports also, we're not doing anything crazy to the base system, its 
just vanilla FreeBSD under there. ;)

Have you tried grabbing the digiKam PBI?


I've played with that one a bit, and it was able to import photos from 
my wife's digital camera just fine. It apparently uses libgphoto also, 
so hopefully it would work "out of box" with your camera as well.

I will take a look at the Kamera port though, and see if we can fix / 
include it in a future release or update down the road.

Glad to have you running the OS! We need more FreeBSD devs to start 
using BSD on the desktop, so we can bug you guys about fixing system 
things :)
