blog: Mount Nikon D600 on Debian linux

The Nikon D600 does not offer the mass storage option that previous Nikons had any more - thus you have to mount the camera via the PTP protocol. First, install gphotofs and set up the surroundings:

sudo aptitude install gphotofs
sudo adduser YOUR_USERNAME plugdev
sudo mkdir /media/YOUR_USERNAME/d600
sudo chmod a+rwx /media/YOUR_USERNAME/d600

Then to mount your camera, enter

gphotofs /media/YOUR_USERNAME/d600

and to unmount

fusermount -u /media/YOUR_USERNAME/d600

You might want to create more appropriately named scripts that do the mount and unmount for you.
