Ok, I wouldn't go so far to say that there is something wrong in that library.
The question rather is "which string encoding does their API offer?"

I did a quick look at the libgphoto2 sources, but I did not see any note about
a concrete "encoding". It seems that they use just "char*" and the strings
contain "translated text" (at least the comments in the code says so). 

That means for digikam, that whenever receives such a string from the library,
it probably needs to be converted it by using QString::fromLocal8Bit(),
fromUtf8() or similar. 

My system here is configured to use UTF-8 as native encoding, so I guess that
fromLocal8Bit(...) might be a good choice. Could you please give this a try?
