Whilst logged in as a normal user, does the system still actually recognise your USB camera? It should display what it's up to under /var/log/messages . Also, are you able to mount the camera and browse the photos manually as a normal user? It doesn't sound like digikam is at fault, but the actual permissions to mount + browse the camera.
