If it's pre-usb you may have some difficulty finding information.  You may 
find something helpful here, though:

http://www.teaser.fr/~hfiguiere/linux/digicam.html

http://www.gphoto.org/proj/libgphoto2/support.php

Then

http://www.linux-usb.org/gadget/

does mention

Serial ... this exposes a tty style serial line interface, usable with Minicom 
and similar tools. (There's no serial console support at this time.) Most 
Linux hosts can talk to this using the generic usb-serial driver. 

Don't know if any of this will help.
