Reading through the LWN Grumpy Editors guide to Cameras and his guide
to doing the OLPC one.. it isn't easy to deal with since they all have
hidden variables that you have no idea why you are setting at XYZ
unless you want it to break. I haven't done anything with CCD's as all
my imaging was done before CCD's were 'cheap'. We used a 1960's black
and white TV camera for the image gathering...
