    Actually Hardy still doesn't mount the camera, in fact if I disable the f-spot-import action from Control Center --> Removable Drives and Media --> Cameras tab and then set Control Center --> File Management Preferences --> Photos to 'Open Folder' nothing happens.

    If I run tail -f /var/log/messages before attaching the camera it shows it only detecting a usb device.

    Code:
    Sep 27 12:01:24 zeus kernel: [327178.064919] usb 1-8: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3
    Sep 27 12:01:24 zeus kernel: [327178.198765] usb 1-8: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
    My camera, a new Fuji Finepix S1000fd (which is an awesome value for it's price btw) can do decent video, so I needed a way to mount it to get the .avi's off of it.

    Both f-spot and gthumb could see the avi, however f-spot failed to import the avi's -- which doesn't surprise me since it is a photo db.

    What I ended up doing was changing the command in Control Center --> Removable Drives and Media --> Cameras --> Digital Camera to 'gthumb --import-photos' without quotes. This at least allows me to get the avi files onto my pc, furthermore it returns my ability to delete the images from the camera as I import them.

    Re: how do i access my camera's mount point?

    I've found that the files are in ~/.gvfs/ and Nautilus finds them as gphoto2://[usb:005,004]/

    That would be fine (elegant even) if I just want the files. However, I want access to the device to attempt recovery of some deleted pictures using photorec.

    Anyone know how to find the address of the device?

    Hope this helps -

    Using Ubuntu 12.10, I'm able to access my camera on the command line using /run/user/<username>/gvfs/gphoto2:host=%5Busb%3A002%2C008%5D/
