My camera is also a Kodak - EasyShare C300.

I certainly will, I just downloaded your kernel and I will play with it today.
I did manage to get the test photos off the camera yesterday, but not with BL.
A Google Linux search for the camera revealed that this camera uses a PTP protocol (developed by Kodak and others) but is amenable to gphoto2. Accordingly, I downloaded and compiled (in SW9.1) libgphoto2, gphoto2 and gtkam, and was able to access the photos (but not the movies) from SW9.1.
Here's hoping that David's kernel makes it all a lot simpler.
