If it works the same as mine, when the usb-storage module loads, it creates a
hook to the camera's file system as a SCSI drive.  So /dev/sda1 is now a valid
device file (assuming you don't have any SCSI hard drives installed).  To get at
the camera, create a mount point, and mount the drive on it:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/dummy
for example, where /mnt/dummy is an empty directory.  Then look in /mnt/dummy
for your picture files.  You won't necessarily see the files in the directory
that you mounted, you may have to decend into a directory tree to find what
you're looking for.
