try this

mkdir /mnt/camera

mount /dev/sda /mnt/camera -t vfat

if you have a sata or scsi disc then it will be likely to be /dev/sdb or /dev/sdc

Yup, the filesystem is usually vfat (FAT16 or FAT32 for example) on flash memory cards and therefore in most cameras too (in case of "internal" memory). Might be different but all I've seen have worked with vfat.

Still I wouldn't mount the camera manually, it's irritating to go trough the directories on the card. Easier done if you use gThumb or F-Spot in case the libraries support your camera model. Of course if you're not using X at all, for example, mounting is the way to go (you could still use libgphoto though). But then again, what's the point in having photos without a graphical view?

I tried your way.
mount: special device /dev/sda1 does not exist

I got such info.
If I use type usbfs I can mount it, but it cannot display the real contents.

What should I do?
