 Camera
All cameras are fundamentally the same - a light-tight box containing film, with a hole that will let light in to strike the film (or the CCD, in the case of digital cameras) and thereby record an image.
A home-made pinhole camera costing pennies and a sophisticated, top-of-the line model costing several thousands of dollars both work on this principle.

 Digital Cameras - Sony Cybershot DSC-P8 Digital Camera Review, Information, Specifications
The camera's Zoom control is in the upper right corner, conveniently located next to a series of small bumps for better thumb traction when holding the camera.
Because the camera employs a slower shutter speed in both Twilight modes, a tripod is highly recommended to prevent any blurring from camera movement.
A welcome change in Sony's 2003 camera lineup is that they've now removed the previous shutter speed limitation of 1/30 second in normal shooting modes: The P8 will cheerfully deliver up to a 1-second exposure without forcing you to go to one of its "Twilight" modes.

Whatever portion of the subject is closest to the camera and aligned with one of the AF points determines the overall focus.

 Howstuffworks "How Digital Cameras Work"
The digital camera is one of the most remarkable instances of this shift because it is so truly different from its predecessor.
You can take a photograph using a conventional film camera, process the film chemically, print it onto photographic paper and then use a digital scanner to sample the print (record the pattern of light as a series of pixel values).
Just like a conventional camera, it has a series of lenses that focus light to create an image of a scene.

 What is a camera obscura?
The image quality was improved with the addition of a convex lens into the aperture in the 16th century and the later addition of a mirror to reflect the image down onto a viewing surface.
By the beginning of the 19th century the camera obscura was ready with little or no modification to accept a sheet of light sensitive material to become the photographic camera.
Older camera obscuras are celebrated as cultural and historic treasures and new camera obscuras are being built around the world.

 NOVA Online | Lost on Everest | The Camera
The so-called "miniature" camera first retailed at $6.00—far less than the larger folding models—and became popular with soldiers during World War One.
By 1924 the small camera, often a folding model, was a fixture in homes worldwide, finding most of its function on vacations and picnics, beaches, and similar idyllic sunny days.
If this 1924 film, missing for three quarters of a century, is found, some interesting measures will be taken to recover any images that may be present on the narrow rolls.

 DCRP Review: Canon PowerShot S2 IS
When a camera is connected to your computer via the USB connection you'll see the Camera Window appear.
You'll notice this mostly when the camera is at the telephoto end of the lens, where tiny movements of your hand turn into big movements in your photo, resulting in blurring.
This comes in handy when the camera is on a tripod and your subject is not in the center of the frame.

This camera is probably the most fundamentally important step for digital SLR's since the introduction of the Nikon D1.

 Researchers Aim for Single-Pixel Camera | LiveScience
The approach is based on a new digital image/video camera that directly acquires random projections of the signal without first collecting the pixels/voxels.
A digital camera that records pictures in the infrared and the ultraviolet as well as the visible range could work using just a single-pixel light sensor, as opposed to the million-pixel sensors digital cameras now employ.
Essentially, if cameras scan in a fraction of pixels from throughout a scene—say, 3 or 4 percent, or just thousands of pixels—new algorithms can take such data and extrapolate out what the original image appeared like.
