With our current policy, we don't want to allow users to mount
partitions on fixed IDE disks. I also don't think that it would be a
good idea to mount all ext3/reiserfs partitions, since we don't know
what is on them. But it may certainly be worthwile to think about
creating an fstab entry for VFAT/NTFS partitions at installer time,
since Windows does not separate system and home partitions so clearly
as a usual Unix system does.

Does your camera support usb-storage, i. e. can you mount it as a
normal drive? Can you check whether Computer -> Desktop Settings ->
Removable Devices -> Import digital photos from camera (loosely
translated from German) is active?
