Digikam use libraw for "decoding" raw files. libkdcraw is a interface for
digikam to libraw. Check which version of libraw that supports your new
camera and if you use that version of libraw or something newer. If you
update libraw then libkdcraw needs to be recompiled to use it and in the
next step you can see the changes in digikam.
