gPhoto 0.x

In early 1998 I bought my first digital Olympus camera with a RS-232 serial interface. A while later the GNU Photo project was launched in co-operation with Scott Fritzinger. The original application, gPhoto, was based on the camera library in photopc and soon released under the GNU General Public License as a GTK+ 1.2 frontend. Eventually gPhoto shipped with 19 different camera drivers, but it's now obsoleted by libgphoto2 and gtkam.

Here is a screenshot of the GTK+ 1.2 frontend with a photography shot of Tux, the Linux penguin mascot, with a Kodak DC240 digital camera box, by the software engineer and USB developer David Brownell and downloaded with a Kodak DC240 camera supported by the Free Software package:
