Does the capture software require 2.4?

Given
"
I actually would like to have the code as
try:
   obj.img = cam.getImage(timestamp=3)
except CamException:
   setup_cam()

But, since no exception is provided,
"

I do not think the tool is so excellent.  It should either return a 
picture or raise and exception.  Request that of the author.
