getting access denied , when trying to access camera as normal user

I cant seem to access my digital camers as a normal user it only seems to work as root,
in my etc/fstab I entered the following:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/FujiFilm auto noauto,owner,rw 0 0

this does not seem to work, I tried to rw the folders as well from root with :
rw-rw-rw and 777 /mnt/FujiFilm
I also went into the gui in kde from root made a dev/sda link to a users desktop gave permission to them,
still no go:
Is there an unmask=0 0 0 type option for sda devs?
any ideas?

Try this for your fstab entry:

/dev/sda1 /mnt/FujiFilm auto user,noauto,defaults,umask=0,rw 0 0
