IPCamera Binding : Generic Camera

I have some Trendnet cameras; they have a url i can go to in order to retrieve a latest image.
Using this binding(IPCamera) is it possible to do:
Create a site map with entries that just display that latest snapshot?

I’ve tried the following:
Created a new thing:

Created the Item for “Image” channel:

When i put that in a site map:Image item=GarageCamera01_image the log states:
Cannot retrieve item ‘GarageCamera01_image’ for widget org.eclipse.smarthome.model.sitemap.sitemap.Image

Is what I’m trying to do possible? What am I missing?
My hope was just setting up the thing and defining the “Image” channel, i could call on that to display on demand when the site map was loaded.
