I'm owning a Canon Powershot G3 digicam and a 12" Powerbook (1.5GHz, SD). I'm using MacOS X 1.4.2 and iPhoto 5 (latest version). Alas, I have significant problems with my Canon Powershot G3 digicam. If the camera is set to PTP (picture transfer protocol) iPhoto will not even recognize it and hangs sometimes. If I set the transfer mode to "normal", the camera is recognized and (usually most of) the photos are transferred, but now and then iPhoto claims that some of the photos are damaged or the format cannot be recognized and refuses to import them. I have the impression that this happens when I've lots of pictures on my Powershot G3. Last time it happened, iPhoto refused to import all pictures that it tried to import after a 1.5 minute long avi-movie. I don't think that this is a problem with my Powershot G3, because everything works fine on a Windows XP computer. I had the same problem with iPhoto 4, and I've filed a bug report a long time ago, so I don't think Apple is gonna fix this. Alas, the camera comes with OS 9 software, so using the software that came with the camera is no satisfying workaraound. Does anybody here have similar problems or can anybody suggest a solution?
