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.
