The same goes for, at least, Nikon's compact-flash based 880 camera
(and probably all the others at least from Nikon). You can buy a $10
CF to PCMCIA adapter and plug that into your laptop. It'll look like
a plain ordinary FAT filesystem, which Win or Linux will happily
process. If you're using "raw" format, then you'll need a program
that knows the particular camera's proprietary format. (It seems that
recent Photoshop versions do; it's not something that applies to my
camera.) If the camera uses JPG or TIFF format, you'll be able to use
any decent graphics tool to manipulate those.

I wish I knew why iPhoto transfers across the USB at less than 1/2 the
speed that the Nikon hack on Win98 does...
