Personally I use it and I'm satisfied.


I just tried it out and it's pretty nice, but I would like something
more specialized to transfer the pictures from the camera to a local
folder. Does anyone know if there is something like that?
Specifically, I would like to:
_ delete the pictures in the camera after successful file transfer (I
guess most people normally do that in order to take new pictures,

mv?  cut-n-paste?

_ rename the files according to some pattern (eg 20090101_001.jpg,
20090101_002.jpg etc)

jhead -n%Y%m%d-%H%M%S *.jpg

_ organize the pictures in folders conveniently (f-spot creates
folders based on the date the picture was taken, and sometimes it's
more convenient to have a folder like "New Year's Eve party").

I'd use bash or maybe nautilus.
