You'll need to upgrade your version of libgphoto2 to version 2.4.0.
Unfortunately, there's no official feisty backport of this library
available. However, one of the commenters in the following bug report
has created an unofficial backport for feisty. It can be found here:

Standard caution against downloading and installing applications from
untrusted sources applies here.

Of course, there's always the options of compiling and installing
libgphoto2 2.4.0 yourself, or just waiting and upgrading to gutsy when
it's released.
