I got the same error. I think that gphoto2 (which gtkam uses) has a
detection bug of some sort. For me it detects the camera model as 0x306a
when it should be 0x306c. Try downloading pictures using the following
at a command line:

gphoto2 --usbid "0x4a9:0x306c=0x4a9:0x306a" -P

This forces it to use the proper model id, and worked for me. I cannot
seem to get gtkam to use this option though, so I do not know how to get
the GUI version to work.
