Or is there a resource on the web that lists the ones are Ubuntu compatible?

I think, nowdays the cameras connects to the copmuters like a simple USB storage. What do you think? – antivirtel May 5 '11 at 19:35
What do you expect from the camera? Ability to just upload the pix to Ubuntu? Or something fancty like being able to make photos from Ubuntu controlling the camera? – Rinzwind May 5 '11 at 19:37

Most digital cameras are seen by Ubuntu as USB flash drives. While there are some that won't get along with Ubuntu, you're pretty safe in this area. Once you have your options narrowed down to 2-3 kinds you should search the forums for those models to see what others have experienced.

Here's a pretty good page on cameras/photos in Ubuntu to get you started.
