Now I loaded the pwc kernel module, disconnected and reconnected the camera 
and got only:
ugen0: detached
ugen0: vendor 0x046d Camera, rev 1.10/0.00, addr 5

From usbdevs -v only the following line relates to the camera
  port 3 addr 5: full speed, power 100 mA, config 1, Camera(0x092f), vendor 
0x046d(0x046d), rev 0.00
