Default DSLR Camera USB input

Can anyone tell me if rooting will make this possible?

I want to be able to plug my DSLR camera directly into the USB on my Xoom and download the pictures. Is this possible if I root and use the new Tiamat Kernel?

Thanks,

I don't think tethering a camera has been possible on any android device yet.

You cant control a DSLR but it might mount as an external drive. Havent tried it myself yet, need to order to right cable or adapter.

I have the adapter on the way. And yes, I didnt want to control it, only mount the CF card in the camera so I can access the pictures.

Yeah the only way I've found to accomplish what you are trying to do was to use an external USB card reader, which (assuming you have rooted and performed the USB host hack) you can plug into the xoom (via adapter) and read the CF off of the card reader. In order for the camera to connect directly to the Xoom, I believe the Xoom would have to have drivers for the camera itself (though I could be wrong, but either way that method doesn't work as of now).

Can someone walk me through how to mount mass storage? I am trying to hook up my camera so see the photos on the SD cardof the camera. I am rooted using the tiamat 1.4.0 kernel. I have hooked it up with my cable adapter and checked usbOTG, external, and sdcard2 but none of the files show up there. I rebooted and still nothing. Do I need to run a script fro it to show up?

Can someone help explain to me how to mount a USB mass storage device like a thumb drive or USB card rerader?
