Default [Q] DSLR and mount path


I attach my Nikon D800 through an OTG. My phone finds my camera and I'm able to copy files on to my device, but I'm not able to browse my camera using a file explorer. How can I browse it normally through a file explorer?

The camera doesn't mount under /mnt/ as a normal USB mass storage unit since it's using MTP protocol.

I have an FTP program on my phone and need that to access pictures directly on camera and send them. To be able to do that I need to be able to browse the memory cards in my camera.

I know I was able to do this before, and as I have understood that was possible during android 3.1.x. Now I have 4.1.2 stock rom and not able to anymore.

Some help would be greatly appreciated since I'm dependent on being able to use FTP directly from my camera.

Thank you for any answers.

Best regards,

Do you have an I9100 ? Reason I ask is this device never got Android 3x. We went straight from Gingerbread (2x) to ICS (4x).

Edit to add -Also, a Google search (which frankly is better than XDA search) for 'I9100 XDA DLSR USB OTG' yields a bunch of threads here that could be useful to you. As this is something that very few people here would use (at least nowdays; it may have been more common when this phone was more widely used by people here), and as these forums don't see anywhere near as much traffic as they did even 12 mths ago, you might be waiting a very long time to have your questions answered. I'd suggest you mine those threads for any info which might be useful.
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
