Possibly only as a bootloader or datashifter.
the camera has three different processors and it is more than
unlikely that the 80186 compatible processor is used for much
more than filesystem handling and starting a different operating
system or delegating the work to dedicated ASICs.
I would guess the latter -- delegating the work to dedicated ASIC's.
Generating JPEG's from raw files is a very specialized task that's
very compute-intensive in some ways but which could probably be
implemented quite cheaply in hardware.
