I've done this before with a different camera (actually a smartmedia
card reader) mounted using usb-storage.  It didn't seem to cause any
problems.  Obviously you want to make sure you unmount before unplugging
the usb cable.  If worst comes to worst, doesn't your camera have a way
to reformat its internal memory and restart from scratch?
