Yes it looks like your camera uses PTP protocol (precisely like mine 
Kodak C340 does). In this case you don't mount it at all and use 
graphics/libgphoto2 based photo transfer/management programs instead (they 
are: console graphics/gphoto2, KDE3 based graphics/digikam, KDE4 
graphics/digikam-kde4, GTK+ graphics/gtkam, MONO graphics/f-spot and so on 
- make your choice)
