usb digital camera

Is there some trick to using USB devices? I'm trying to access my Nikon 
coolpix 5000 (latest firmware PTP mode) from 4.9-STABLE with no luck.

usbdevs sees the camera, as does "gphoto2 --auto-detect". However, I'm unable 
to access the camera data with "gphoto2 --auto-detect --summary" (or via 
digikam or via konquerer). Having never done this before, I don't know if 
there is a usb config file I need to hack (usbd is running with unmodified 
usbd.conf). I've tried running as user & root and saw no change.

Any help appreciated.
