I just checked this out and have mostly good but still mixed results. I
compiled the 0.4 branch and started shotwell from there. This is what
A Panasonic TZ7 was recognized and the import started, without an
"unmount necessary" message. It spent a while in the "retrieving photo
information" stage, but otherwise, the retrieval went well. The lag in
that stage seems to be either a deficiency in the PTP implementation of
the camera or in gphoto2 (which reports it as an FZ20, too). Nothing
A Nikon D90, on first try (directly after the above try) gave an
"unspecified error -1" when I switched the camera on.
Switching the camera off, then on again, gave me an "unmount necessary"
message, which I confirmed and afer that, import was fine. On the third
try, it worked without the "unmount required" message, just the progress
bar said "unmounting".
I repeated this sequence (first the Panasonic, then the Nikon), and then
the Nikon worked without issues, right the first time.
So, apart from the strange "unspecified error", which only occured in
one try, it seems that everything works fine!
