Well I've got camera which connects to PC with USB cable.
Then I can see another drive in a system. In that drive there is a folder in which the images reside. It is only copy file task needed.
Don't know what is in Your case.

Most digital cameras are simply USB mass storage devices.
They show up as a removable hard disk. Copy the files as you would any other file.

The question is if the camera provides a TWAIN driver.
It can but it does not need to.
Usually the camera is either a still image device which needs a TWAIN driver
or a mass storage device which makes it a removable harddisk.
Mass storage is more common.
For TWAIN there are several components available. Have a look at Torry's.
