My NAS normally doesn't care what user/perms are used, which is probably a
tad insecure (although I use noexec if I nfs mount it) but quite
helpful.  I'm not sure what it's doing, it's xfs but doesn't seem to
have any special mount options.  Ah /etc/exports has:

/nfs/Public *(rw,all_squash,sync,insecure,anonuid=65534,anongid=65534)

Or even more simple, switch SD card to an EyeFi SD/wifi, then if you can
run the reception daemon on your NAS, pictures taken from the camera
will automatically upload to the NAS when you're in range and/or there
are new ones.
