This usually shows some aspect of memory or taking notice. The dream may also show you something important that you have seen out of the ‘corner of your eye’ but not processed into waking awareness. It also links with wanting to carry the essence of people with you if you have to leave them or be away from them.
The camera can show your ability or inability to be really aware of what is going on around you. It can also be used in a dream to show different perspective of life than your usual views. Sometimes in dreams the camera is like a time machine in that it captures moments of life that can be looked back on or replayed. See: photos.
Example: dream about my camera. I was in a car full of people and remembered I had left my camera at home and asked if they wouldn’t mind if we went to fetch it. They did not mind and took me home. My father was curled up looking pitiful asleep on a chair. I got my camera and then lowered it through a square opening and threw it down to the level below. I was a first worried that that action might damage the lens but it rolled quietly and was fine. I decided not to follow the camera through the opening.
The camera links with memory, memory of your father. The level below suggests a move to the past, maybe to be with your father. You do not follow that feelings however.
Movie or video camera: Being filmed has elements in it of parts of your life being on display to other people, and shows how you feel about that.
