I think in general you should check that your camera produces files that
GIMP can open. If are considering something more than a point-and-shoot
camera, for example a reflex, and you want the best quality and
flexibility, sooner or later you will hear about RAW files. These are
not standard files, every manufacturer produces its own format. You
should check that a GIMP plugin like UFRaw can open RAW files created by
your camera in order to convert to tiff or jpeg. I am using my Nikon D80
without problems with GIMP and UFRaw on Linux.
