Well, strictly speaking you are correct. IMHO "getting files from a digicam" is nothing but a simple file copy. But to do that in a nice way and not store all pictures in the same location access to EXIF information is crucial. With that you can place pictures based on creation time, modification time, tags and any other number of criteria derived from EXIF info ("put all pictures with manual white balance taken after 8:00pm into folder EveningShots").

That sort of thing will mostly help getting metadata out of pictures,
not necessarily getting the pictures from the hardware.
