I didn't know gphoto could work with iDevices. Another thing
to check next week. I've been using both gphoto and gtkam
(both using the same library) many years ago to get images
from a camera that didn't have the ability to be used with
the direct access (da) driver (i. e., no mass storage was
exported), but with those tools, it was very easy to copy
or move files (or all files) from the device.
