Plug it in, and see what happens.
Ideally, it shows up as a umass device, and wdX attaches to it.
Digital (still) cameras are intended to act as harddisks in USB land.
If the camera comes with it's own protocol, you have a problem, though.
For a Kodak something290, a program called 'ophoto' helped me.
I have patches here but didn't get around to put the whole thing into
pkgsrc (it was not my camera that I tried this with).
NetBSD - because Unix isn't just #include <linux.h>, i386, ILP32, ELF, ...!
