Try hwbrowser.  You will need root password.  Execute it from the
terminal or from the main menu: Apps -> System tools -> Hardware browser

You could use lspci as root too.

I think just connecting the camera to the USB port should do the trick.
It will be treated as a storage device (I guess) so you can copy the
files to your hard disk with nautilus.

If you plug your camera and nothing happens you can
check /var/log/messages to check kernel events.

Before connecting do this as root in a terminal window:
# tail -f /var/log/messages

plug your camera in and post the kernel events to the list.
