NO
Do not change the permissions in the /dev directory

If you want to allow normal users to mount the camera, you need to add an entry in the /etc/fstab file with the option user
Code:
/dev/sda1               /mnt/camera          vfat    defaults,user        0 0
If you want to create a script to mount the camera, take a look at this thread.

If you do not want the camera to be mounted at system boot, you will need to add the noauto option to the entry in /etc/fstab
Code:
/dev/sda1               /mnt/camera          vfat    noauto,users        0 0
If you want to know more about the options, take a look at the mount MAN page.

Matthieu is right. I misunderstood and thought you were referring to a webcam, sorry.
