Question How to get camera not to mount as a filesystem on connection?

I have an old Intel webcam that doubles as a standalone digital camera. When I plug it in, Fedora automatically mounts the memory for the camera as a filesystem.
However, because it is old and clunky, if I try to use its webcam functionality after this happens, it crashes internally and nothing ever happens.
Even if I unmount the memory, it still remains "crashed".

I know that if the memory was never accessed, the webcam would work, as this is how it is on Windows, and also how it was in a previous release of Fedora, which didn't automount.

So this boils down to, telling it not to automatically mount (or even acknowledge the existence of, hopefully) a filesystem.

I think you'd need a custom udev rule, otherwise you'd have to disable all Gnome automount functionality
