My Sony DSC camera did work under 8.0-RELEASE. It's a model DSC-W35.
It's seeing the umass problem now, and has since 8.1-PRERELEASE afair.
This fault is the same on i386 or amd64, intel or amd chipsets, USB
1.0 or 2.0, through hubs or straight off the m/b, etc.. I'm keeping a
backup box (intel atom / i386) running 7.3-STABLE around specifically
to work around the problem. I'd have said something eralier, but I've
gotten used to small nits poppping up and then disappearing; this one
is dragging along :(
