A camera is used to take photos. In the wizarding world, photos have the ability to move.

In 1992, a photographer at Flourish and Blotts was taking pictures of Gilderoy Lockhart for the Daily Prophet. The camera emitted a cloud of purple smoke with each flash. Bozo, Rita Skeeter's photographer, also had one, and used it to take pictures of the Triwizard champions. Colin Creevey's camera is appeared to be a Muggle device, although since it did work at Hogwarts, it must not have had any electrical parts. During Colin's first year he took plenty of pictures of Harry, much to Harry's chagrin. Although the camera is non-magical, the pictures he took do move because he developed them in a special potion. Alternatively, the camera itself may have been a Muggle camera but enchanted to work taking magical photographs.

George Weasley owned a camera, which he was seen holding in the Weasley family photograph taken during their trip to Egypt during the summer of 1993.

If someone watches the eyes of a basilisk through a camera, the person would get petrified but would not die.[1]
