The camera is an optical instrument for recording or capturing images, which may be stored locally, transmitted to another location, or both. The emoji is depicted by a point-and-shoot camera which was used before smartphone cameras.
The camera emoji was introduced in 2010 and released as part of the Unicode 11.0 standard. This emoji can be found under the objects
category. Because the camera emoji has been around for quite some time, it should display correctly in the majority of operating systems.
