1) i wrote small commandline tool in c if you point it to DCIM folder it
will output tagged list of paths. Is it what you mean?

What about a small application that imports photos (or videos, etc.)
from cameras, which apart from simply copying over the files also
deciphers the information from the DCIM folder and inserts the
relevant things into Tracker? The file copying part is already done by
gthumb-importer, etc., but not the second part.

Before i start actual coding i need to know what is where located. I
mean if do DCIM interpreter, should it be located in tracker-extractor
or in photo downloader. It seems like it will be better than interpreter
will be inside of the tracker and downloader should only update file
paths in tracker database.

2) i thing solang teem can do it :)

I don't think it is a good idea to have a 'camera importer' inbuilt in
Solang. We used to have this earlier, but it is much better to have a
stand alone application (not tied to a particular photo manager) that
benefits the entire desktop.

No no, i'm not about 'camera importer' here. Please take a look at the
screenshots at this page:
