libgphoto2 2.5.21

libgphoto2 is a set of libraries for previewing, retrieving, and capturing images from a range of supported digital cameras to your local hard drive. It does not support digital cameras based on the USB storage protocol, those can be mounted by Linux directly. The list of current cameras can be found on: http://gphoto.org/proj/libgphoto2/support.php or by running gphoto2 --list-cameras
