Camera emoji is the picture of a bit old-fashioned Camera of point-and-shoot type (except for emojidex’s version showing a quite modern one). It used film or produced the digital photos of quite a bad quality, depending on the type. It is the same device as in Camera With Flash emoji — but it’s off. It is used in the context of photography in general and remembering something.
Examples of using
“I’ll make a lot of photos there 📷”
“I need a better camera 📷”
