Ubuntu: How to transfer photos from camera to PC over Wi-Fi (Canon S110) Xubuntu 13.10



Question:

The Canon S110 comes with an optical disk containing a software bundle for Windows (and of course nothing for Linux), including an utility for connecting to the computer through WiFi.

Also I think worth noting is that in Windows the transfer process requires Media Streaming and Network Discovery to be turned on. I think this would be key points for enabling photo transfer on Ubuntu also, but I cannot find [the equivalent of] these options anywhere.

This link explains the process for Windows.

So the question is how can I transfer my photos from the camera to my Ubuntu PC over wireless?

I love the wireless option on the Canon S110 and have been using it intensely before switching over to Linux, I don't like to mess with cables. Anyway, I already lost the original cable. Also my PC has no card reader.

I am using both Xubuntu and Mint 16 XFCE.


Solution:1

Airnef is an open source tool that can be used to transfer files from Canon, Nikon and Sony cameras (at the time of this writing).

Airnef is two applications - a GUI front-end and a command-line app. The GUI front-end allows you to visually select the criteria of which images to download and then launches the command-line app to perform the transfer. You can optionally use the command-line version directly to script your transfers.

Here is the download link to the 1.1 binaries but people interested in python should download the source.
