Turn on debugging output. Debugging output is written to stderr by default, or to the filename given to the –debug-logfile option. The logfile to write the debugging info to, if –debug is given. The verbosity of debug logging.
Possible values with incrementing verbosity are: If the hook script returns with a non-zero exit code now, gphoto2 will abort. Do your final cleanups here. All other environment variables are passed to the hook script unchanged. You can make use of that to pass data to the hook script.
Using the gphoto2 command line interface (CLI)
The –list-ports prints a list of valid, usable ports. In case of multiple USB cameras, the –auto-detect shows you the specific port each camera is connected to. The –list-cameras option prints a list of all explicitly supported cameras. Most model names contain spaces: Note that if you specify –camerayou must also specify –port. Otherwise the –camera option will be silently ignored.
When downloading files from the camera, specify the file name or file name pattern to use when storing the downloaded file on the local disk. When uploading a file to the camera, specify the filename to store the uploaded file as on the camera. Leaving out the padding character e. Display the camera and driver abilities specified in the libgphoto2 driver.
This all does not query the camera, it uses data provided by the library. Use –summary to query an overview of the camera. Only get not already downloaded files. This option depends on camera support of flagging already downloaded images and is not available for all drivers. Capture a quick preview and displays it in the terminal using Ascii Art if aalib was used during build.
A value of -1 will let gphoto2 wait forever, i. Setting this option will reset the time interval to the value given by the -I –interval option when a SIGUSR1 signal is received in time-lapse mode. Triggers the capture an image and return.
If you want to get the image downloaded, see –wait-event-and-download. When doing –capture-image-and-download or interval capture, this option will keep the images on the memory card of the camera.
When doing –capture-image-and-download or interval capture, this option will not keep the images on the memory card of gohoto2 camera after downloading them during capture. When doing –capture-image-and-download or interval capture, this option will keep the RAW images on the memory card of the camera, but still download the JPEG images.
This is useful when doing dual mode capture and you want to review the JPEGs already during capture. If the camera supports previews, this will capture a stream of previews motion-jpeg as fast as the camera can.
If not argument is specified, it will capture preview frames until you press Ctrl-C. Arguments that can be specified are either seconds of capture or number of preview frames.
Lets gphoto2 wait for notifications from the camera that an object was added. This is useful for tethered capture, where pressing the shutter on the camera immediately transfer the image to the machine for processing. Together with the –hook-script to immediately postprocess or display the images this can help a studio workflow.
Lets gphoto2 wait for notifications from the camera for various events. This is useful gohoto2 seeing what the camera does and waiting for objects to be added.
The time to wait can be either specified as full seconds with a “s” suffix, a number of milliseconds with a “ms” suffix, as a number of events just a numberor a sub-string to match. In the download variant this can be used together with the –hook-script to immediately postprocess or display the images this can help a studio workflow. Starts a gphto2 based text configuration menu. This command is a combination of –list-config and calling –get-config on all the entries.
This command will list the type, the current value and also the available options of this configuration value. Set the specified configuration entry. Since this is not fully clear, you can use –set-config-index or –set-config-value to be more clear what is searched for.

Look at the output of –get-config to see what values manula possible to set here. Set the specified configuration entry by specifying the index into the list of choices for the configuration value. This of course only works for configuration settings that offer list of choices. Look at the output of –get-config to see what indices are possible to set here. Set the specified configuration entry by specifying its new value.
For lists of choices the value is looked up and set. This command resets the USB port of either the first auto-detected camera, or the port specified with –port usb: This option is useful if somehow the protocol talking to the camera locked up and simulates plugging out and in the camera. Start the gphoto2 shell, an interactive environment. Works only for Menu or Radio button entries.
Newly added images are kept on the camera.
Newly added images are downloaded from the camera. If set, defines the directory where the libgphoto2 library looks for its camera drivers camlibs. Set this to all to receive lots of debug information regarding library loading on ld based systems. If set, defines the numeric debug level with which the libusb library will print messages. In order to get some debug output, set it to 1.
If the –reset-interval option is given, the time counter is reset to the value given by the -I –interval option. Note that the camera will need some time from 50ms to a few seconds to actually capture the image.
Get files number 7 through 13 from the list output by gphoto2 –list-files. Capture one image gphoro2 60 seconds from now to eternity. The example hook script will be called after each captured mannual has been stored on the computer. Name gphoto2 — command-line gphoto2 client.
Description libgphoto2 3 is a mmanual digital camera library, and gphoto2 1 is a command-line client for it. Shell Mode The following commands are available: Default is 1 event.
