OK -- I've now got the camera with me, and it's importing pictures with
no problem.

Doesn't for me.

That's all I'm seeing.

If you're still not seeing any joy, then the gphoto error message

    For debugging messages, please use the --debug option. Debugging
    messages may help finding a solution to your problem. If you intend
    to send any error or debug messages to the gphoto developer mailing
    list <gphoto-devel lists sourceforge net>, please run gphoto2 as

And then it suggests something which will only work with a C shell. I'd

LANG=C gphoto2 --auto-detect --debug --debug-logfile=my-logfile.txt

If you really have no joy, you might try that mailing list.

Hope this helps,
