Use the graphics/gphoto2 port. You'll need read/write access to the USB
devices. Create a group called 'usb', and add your user-id to it using

    pw groupadd usb -m <your username>

Edit devfs.rules(5) to give the usb group write access to the usb and
ugen devices:

    # excerpt from /etc/devfs.rules
    add path 'usb/*' mode 0660 group usb
    add path 'ugen*' mode 0660 group usb

Do not forget to activate the ruleset in /etc/rc.conf;

    # excerpt from /etc/rc.conf

After a reboot, the permissions are fixed. You can of course also use chown(8)
and chmod(1) to fix the permissions without rebooting.
