Now, I tried your advice. Alas, it makes no difference. Fuse.ko
was also loaded before, but the problem persists to be that
/dev/da0s1 is never created, only /dev/da0 is. Running the
mount.exfat command above on /dev/da0 then yields:

   ~/ % sudo mount.exfat -o ro /dev/da0 /mnt
   FUSE exfat 1.3.0
   ERROR: failed to get size of '/dev/da0'.
I also tried gphoto2, but from the "--list-cameras" option I
can see that my camera, a "Panasonic DMC-FZ200" is not

But after all, I can just use the card reader, then at least I
can access my photos that way.
