I can't tell what really happens here but I would do the following:

After mounting your camera with gvfs-mount check what the system thinks
about the device and mountpoint (filesystem, most likely "fat") with


Then "cd" to that mountpoint and check the output of "ls" or "find".

btw. you didn't told us how you "try to access the mount point".

Due to the error message I assume you use some tool here.  Maybe its
that tool that has the problem with some parts of the camera filesystem,
but thats just a guess.
