I found digiKam autodetection unreliable. Better set up camera by hand
and later connect using this connection explicitly. So, go to digiKam
settings, create new camera using "USB PTP Class Camera", change name to
TZ5, OK. Turn on camera change connection mode to PictBridge/PTP connect
to computer and from digiKam use Import->Camera->TZ5. If this doesn't
work try USB Mass Storage in computer and PC mode in camera.
