Many cameras can be seen as either a USB storage device or 
as a separate kind of device  (often called ptp mode)
which allows photo software like digicam to interact with
the camera and obtain data from pictures, (exif info, photo
settings etc) and even print requests directly from the camera itself.

Its usually slower than just just using it as a usb mass storage
device, but it does offer some features for some users that
they can't get with USB mass storage.
