You might like to look at gphoto: it should probably work
under NetBSD.

If you get a camera which takes compact flash cards, the pcmcia compact
flash adaptors work just fine (well the sandisk one does for me) with
NetBSD, and i beleive that there are some usb compact flash readers
that work too...

Most cameras will work to one extent or another - one thing to check is that
the pictures they produce are in a format that there are readily avilable
tools to manipulate - come kodak cameras produce .kdc files which are
specially mangled jpegs + a tiff thumbnail...
