Well I'd better contribute late in the thread than never.

I have been using GPhoto2 with my Canon for a couple of
weeks now and it works a treat. Haven't tried the GUI app
as it was easy enough to create a pop-up menu item "drain camera".

I wouldn't mind trying Tridge's script before my own one gets Baroque. :o)
