Camera2

Colin's camera in 1995.

This camera was an old-fashioned Muggle camera that Muggle-born student Colin Creevey used to take pictures of his life at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to show his father.[1] Although most devices powered by electricity did not function in the presence of magic, the camera still worked at Hogwarts, since it was able to "[run] off the magical atmosphere" instead of its batteries.[2]

When Colin looked at Salazar Slytherin's basilisk through camera's viewfinder, he was left petrified, and the film inside was burnt and melted.[1]

Colin lost the camera on the Hogwarts grounds during the 1995–1996 school year. However, it was eventually found by Harry Potter on an offset in The Quad near the battlements, and returned to its rightful owner.[3]
