USB storage/camera device fstab help


I recently bought a Digilife ddv-s670 (same as a chicony dragon 5 dc-4230).

I couldnt find anything about this camera with linux, so I plugged it in to see anything would happen.

Im presuming hotplug has fiddled with things, created a folder '/media/ddv-s670' and added a line to my fstab:

/dev/sda1 /media/DDV-S670 vfat user,exec,noauto,iocharset=utf8,noatime,sync 0 0

the device works how I want it too, apart from one thing, I have to mount the camera as root.
How can I change this line so all users can mount it?

** EDIT: sorry, I misread your fstab line - and I can't delete this post.

I was going to suggest putting "user" in the mount options
