Can you use ftp or webdav, that may be easier, this would take care of mimetypes without having to move to a lower level. It depends on the capabilities of your camera but not knowing the model there is limited help.
I had an Axis camera, that ran embedded linux and had a built in python web server (boa) which I used to get an image from the camera every 5 seconds replacing the previous image for viewing from our WEB site. And, I had to put the image directly on the file system and use the Local File System product for Zope to access it because it was always downloaded under the same file name and putting it in Zope directly quickly filled up the hard drive because of the undo option, a learning experience. It's been so long ago I don't remeber all of the details.
