I agree that there is room for improvement, especially with dbus/hal mounts, 
but i can't say that dolphin is slow ( at least not on linux). It browses 
/usr/bin/ (with ~2500 entries) near instantaneus.

As for kamera, i have no experience as i have no camera to test with. But i 
seem to rember reading that support for gphoto2 backend is being worked on or 
done, so things should get better.
