Gilles, there is one issue with the thumbnail display in the Camera
window that is very annoying.
I have a Canon Powershot A70 and when I connect to the camera some of
the thumbnails are not in the correct order. The camera stores pictures
in directories of 100 pictures each and the problem mainly seems to
occur with the first picture in each directory, and also the first
picture on the Compact Flash card.
If I put the CF card in a card reader, mount it, and open it as a
Mounted Camera in digikam I see the same problem.
I guess that this is due to the actual order the pictures are stored on
the card and the order the camera sends them to digikam.
It would be really useful if digikam sorted the images in date order.
Although I can use Select New Items to make sure I get all the new
pictures, this is only really useful if I want to save them all to the
same album. If I want to save the new pictures to 2 or more different
albums them I have to search through the thumbnails to find the required
Does this problem only occur with this camera - or all Canon cameras -
or does it affect other makes of cameras?
Screenshots showing the problem:
