I'm not sure exactly what you are asking, but I will answer based on my assumption of your question.
Flash disinfector searches for and removes certain USB/flash bound infections. The tool does not distinguish between the different types of USB drives as far as I am aware. Any USB removable drive will be scanned.
If your camera has a flash card that is "browsable" through USB, then I'd say that yes, the tool will scan and "disinfect it" should it need to.
Flash disinfector also removes all autorun.inf files in the root of the drive, and will create an autorun.inf folder on the drive to prevent those files from being recreated. That folder should not be removed.
Flash/USB drives are vectors of infection mostly because of the autorun feature. Disabling autorun is the best way to prevent inadvertently spreading infections to other PCs. You should still scan all downloads/files/drives with regular updated AVs before running them. "Disinfecting" a USB drive will not stop infections from being copied from/to it through regular means, it will only stop the autorun spread to other drives if an infected flash device is inserted in a clean PC.
Hope that made sense and answered your question.
