no. (deliberately ambiguous here to a either/or question)

no. that's only for scsi emulation of IDE devices, like DVD/CDR drives
for example. And to my knowledge it is no longer used nowadays as
cdrecord et al started supporting ATAPI...

generally, no. You should see a line (or many lines, actually),
after plugging in your camera, about a mass storage device found.
