What is the difference between;

/dev/sda1 /mnt/camera auto user,noauto 0 0

and

/dev/sda1 /mnt/camera vfat defaults,users 0 0

Code:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/camera auto user,noauto 0 0
- auto: Automatically detect file system
- user: Allow a normal user to mount and un-mount camera
- noauto: Does not automatically mount camera

Code:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/camera vfat defaults,users 0 0
- vfat: Mounts the camera using FAT32
- defaults: Uses defaults which includes automatically mount camera
- users: Allows all users to mount and un-mount.


If you want to learn more about the options, take a look at the mount command's MAN page under the -o switch.
Type: man mount
