It's probably a problem relevant of GPhoto2 library. This kind of
camera device needs a PTP drivers which is implemented into GPhoto2.
digiKam use GPhoto2 drivers.

I don't know any change in digiKam about your problem. Sound like
dysfunction is a side-effect outside digiKam.

Please report first this problem to GPhoto2 team.
