I'm sure you are fully capable of reading man pages and figuring this out, just like I was. (Hint: the solution is in man mount.) But wouldn't you rather have it just spoon-fed to you? (I know I would have.) So here it is: you need the fmask option to mount. It's a mask, so you set it to the bits you don't want set when you mount the filesystem (on top of your normal umask).
My /etc/fstab entry for my camera or other flash card device now looks like this:
/dev/sda1 /pix vfat rw,user,fmask=111,noauto 0 0(On the laptop it's sdb1 because the built-in memory stick reader always grabs sda.)
