It's just a program to launch. Personnaly, I put "shotwell" in there, 
because Thunar does not mount (and thus does not show) the camera. 
Shotwell has a built-in dir tree GUI from which I can access to the 
camera's photos.

Or, you can use Nautilus, which will mount the camera automatically and 
show it on it's sidepane. Nautilus can be chosen as the default file 
manager in the Xfce Settings Manager.
However, if you want the Xfce desktop to open Nautilus instead of Thunar 
when you open a directory from the desktop, you'll have to install the 
Xfce 4.10 PPA.
