Add iPhoto support for Canon Ixus V2 / S200 Elph Apps
If you have the new Canon Ixus V2 you have the problem that it is not yet recognized by ImageCapture. To solve this you must edit the Info.plist file located in /System -> Library -> Image Capture -> Devices -> Type4Camera.app -> Contents.

First cd to /System -> Library -> Image Capture -> Devices -> Type4Camera.app -> Contents. Then make a backup copy of the file with sudo cp Info.plist Info.plist.bak. Now edit Info.plist using sudo or something like Pseudo in PropertyListEditor (comes with Apple Developer Tools) as follows. In the "devices" section, you must add a new Dictionary. Add two childs to this new dictionary: "vendor" and "product". For vendor enter the value "0x04A9". For product enter the value "0x3065" (Your new Ixus V2). Log out and log in again to your machine.

Now ImageCapture should start when you plug in the camera! I have heard that Apple will fix this with Mac OS X 10.1.5.

More news: The software provided with the camera finally works with Mac OS X. You can use the Canon Image Browser and PhotoStitch. It also works with other Canon cameras (G2, etc.). But for converting RAW images, Classic is still needed.

[Editor's note: I don't have this camera to experiment with, but the news of native Canon software is good to hear!]

You need to find out the USB product ID. Just plug in the Camera and open Apple System Profiler. There you can see the ID for the Ixus 330. Use this ID instead of the V2 ID.

S330 works

Thanks, it works! The S330/IXUS330's product value is "0x3066".

It'll be nice though for Apple to include it in 10.1.5. :-)

Where can we get it?

So where can users of older Canon Camera's (G1 in my case) get the new Image Capture for OS X? I haven't seen a mention of it on Canon's website. Will it be free or a pay for?

I think you can't download it. Maybe if enough people ask Canon for it...
