iPhoto Notes: Non-USB Cameras Work

I downloaded iPhoto and had fun playing around with my existing libraries of photos, but was especially pleased to see that inserting the CompactFlash card from my Nikon CoolPix 800 into its CardBus adapter and then inserting the adapter into the my TiBook caused iPhoto to launch and set up the entire roll of film for import. I mention this because the keynote and the documentation suggest that the plug-to-launch feature only worked with USB cameras, and mine is older than that. Over CardBus, it imports very quickly, and recognizes the name I gave the flash card, permits erasing . . . everything.

I’m very impressed, especially since I was rather pleased that the 10.1.2 update only last month managed the same trick with Image Capture.
