Well, we just had a discussion on cameras and Nautilus (well, GNOME VFS
actually) over on utopia-list gnome org the other day and the consensus
was that you should only use Nautilus for browsing device whose primary
and maybe secondary use was random files. 

Thus, for cameras and photos you should use a dedicated photo management
tool sort of like gThumb that of course should start automatically when
plugging in a digital camera.
