The cloud or running Wifi File Explorer on your smart phone becomes a solution that allows you to add other computers and devices into the equation at any time.

gphoto package in rhel/centos is way too old. unfortunately gnome use
gvfs-gphoto2 libgphoto2 to handle automount both for mtp and ptp. so
you're not able to use it what's more it's better to remove gvfs-gphoto.
on the other hand if you rebuild: libmtp and simple-mtpfs from fedora,
them it'll work on rhel/centos-6 too.
