After digital cameras are connected to the USB port and switched on, they are normally automatically mounted and made available to the filebrowser by
libgphoto2, and even though your model is not on the compatibility list, it will probably still work. Searching the mailing lists is also a good way of finding possible compatibility issues with your particular model.
After reading the official manual for your camera, there does seem to be some other settings on the camera itself, which will allow you to specify how it connects to your computer. The screenshot below shows these settings: in automatic mode it will be recognised in Ubuntu as a PTP device (by
libgphoto) and in computer mode as a USB mass storage device. In this latter mode your camera is recognised just like a flash drive, and the
gphoto libraries are not used when it is mounted this way. It is worth experimenting with these modes, and there is more information on them in the useful gphoto FAQ.
However, if you are still having problems, it may be possible to mount the camera using
gvfs-mount. I go through that whole process in detail in another answer. It is about a different model of camera, but the instructions will be the same:
In that answer I also mention software such as
shotwell, which can be used to import your photos.
