How is the camera built?

Cameras have been around for centuries, but they’re still being perfected. Today’s cameras are much more sophisticated than those of years past, and they use many complex parts to work together. Cameras are made up of many different elements that all work together. The most important part in any camera is the lens because it collects light from objects outside of the camera and transfers that light onto the image sensor inside the camera body. The image sensor then converts this light into electrical signals which ultimately create an image on film or within an electronic display screen..


The lens is the most important part of a camera. It’s a transparent optical element that focuses light onto the image sensor, creating an image on it. The lens is made of glass or plastic, and it can be made in different shapes and sizes to work better with certain situations.

Image sensor

The image sensor is the most important part of a camera. It’s what captures the light and converts it into an electrical signal that can be stored on your computer or smartphone.

The sensor is made up of millions of tiny pixels—think of them like a grid, each pixel representing a little bucket where light can fall in to be stored as data. The more pixels there are in this grid, the more detailed your pictures will be—which is why you might hear someone refer to “megapixels” when they’re talking about how good their camera is.

Mirror box

The mirror box is a part of the camera that holds the mirror. The mirror box is located in front of the lens, and it reflects light coming through the lens to the viewfinder.


The viewfinder is the part of your camera that shows you what will appear in your photo. It’s a small, rectangular screen that sits just to the right of your camera lens. Some cameras have an electronic viewfinder (EVF), while others have an optical viewfinder (OVF).

What are they?

An optical viewfinder uses a real-image prism or mirror system to show you what the lens sees through a small cutout window. An electronic viewfinder uses light emitting diodes (LEDs) and liquid crystal displays (LCDs) to project images onto its screen. Most digital cameras use this type now because it’s less bulky than an OVF and gives you more flexibility with framing shots since it can display them digitally before taking them.

Film plane mark and autofocus AF sensors

The bottom of the camera is where you’ll find the film plane mark and autofocus AF sensors. The film plane mark indicates exactly where your photos will be exposed into the camera, so it’s important to make sure that you don’t accidentally tape over or scratch up this part of your camera (unless you want to create an abstract effect).

On many modern cameras, these two different types of sensors are used together to focus on objects in front of them. To use these functions together properly, place a good distance between what you want to shoot and yourself as soon as possible before pressing down any buttons on your device. Then simply wait for both indicators on either side of each other—this means that everything looks clear!

The most important parts in a camera are the lens and the image sensor.

You might be surprised to learn that there are only a few parts that are essential to the function of your camera.

First, we have the lens. This is one of the most important parts on any camera—in fact, it’s so important that it’s usually the first thing people think about when they look at a camera. The lens is what allows you to see through your camera and capture images. Without it, there would be nothing for you to capture!

But lenses aren’t just for looking through; they also play an important role in how your image sensor receives light information from an object in front of it—the optical properties of each lens determine how much light travels through its center and how much reaches its edges (this is called “depth-of-field”). If you want more precise control over how much of your scene appears sharp in focus (or blurred), then knowing what kind of lens is being used by someone else before shooting something yourself will help inform those decisions later on down the road!
