$ sudo apt-get install gphoto2
$ sudo addgroup camera
$ sudo adduser user camera
$ /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgphoto2/print-camera-list udev-rules mode 0660 group camera | sudo sh -c "cat >/etc/udev/rules.d/90-my-libgphoto2.rules"

$ cat /etc/udev/rules.d/90-my-camera.rules
ATTRS{idVendor}=="04b0", ATTRS{idProduct}=="031c", MODE="0660", GROUP="camera"

After all those actions restart Linux or restart udev:

$ sudo service udev restart

$ gphoto2 --auto-detect
