I wasn't hoping that for the script I wouldn't need to poll dmesg every
2 seconds. Is there another way?

The output is of dmesg is:
[702299.440052] usb 1-8: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and
address 13
[702299.575711] usb 1-8: New USB device found, idVendor=04a9, idProduct=3145
[702299.575720] usb 1-8: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2,
SerialNumber=0
[702299.575726] usb 1-8: Product: Canon Digital Camera
[702299.575730] usb 1-8: Manufacturer: Canon Inc.
