I found no Collections under Cameras, just Behaviour - I unchecked "Use 
a default album ..."
On Import I now go a step further to a dialogue which asks for a saving 
location. No matter if I choose a folder on either of my two local 
drives, I still get "Album name cannot contain '/'"

I've gone through the Settings and can see no obvious incorrect setting.
