Camera USB device in file explorer - why so slow?
I have been using my 10-year-old small Samsung compact camera until recently. Whenever I plug that one into a Windows laptop, it shows up as a regular mass storage device just providing files, no-nonsense, and, despite the age of this thing and USB2.0 only, at an adequate speed. I also can use any image viewing software I like, efficiently.
I got a somewhat newer, bigger Camera, Canon EOS 2000d.
When I connect that with USB, it does not show up as a regular mass storage device, but as a special camera device. And like that, it is absolutely horrible to use.
It takes forever to show the thumbnails - or even just the names in the detail view of a folder.
If I try to use e.g. XnView instead of the Windows built-in image browser, I can look at only one picture, but not use the PgUp/Down keys to switch between the images in the currently open folder - because actually, Windows creates a tempoary file locally, and then calls XnView to open that, instead of directly the folder on the Camera's SDcard.
That's insane and makes access to the cam worse by at least an order of magnitude vs. my old cheap cam.
Is there any way of making this less horrible, or is it just inherent in this device class that is apparently used? (and what did they smoke who came up with that... There's nothing wrong with good ol' mass storage device... or is there?)
