A camera is a device used to capture images, usually photographs, either singly or in sequence such as with video cameras.

A camera that takes pictures singly is sometimes called a photo camera to distinguish it from a video camera.

Cameras may work with the visual spectrum or other portions of the electromagnetic spectrum.
