A library that implements support for numerous digital cameras
libgphoto2 is the core library designed to allow access to digital camera by external programs. It abstracts communication ports and camera protocol, to allow a complete modularity. To support a new communication physical layer (like IEEE1394), just add a new port to libgphoto2_port. To support a new kind a digital camera, just provide a new camlib with the required callbacks. All of this will be transparent to client (programs that call libgphoto2).
