A camera was a type of device that captured light and processed it to produce a photograph, a 2D representation of a specific event.
In the early period of the Galactic Civil War, a passenger for the Star Tours interstellar traveling agency brought aboard a camera among their luggage. It was eventually discovered in the x-ray scanners by the security check-in droid G2-9T, and mistaken for a type of alien weapon. The camera then activated, causing the droid to panic and then tell the scanner to destroy it. After learning that the device was a "camera," he was confused as to what it was as well as slightly irritated. In the pre-boarding video for the Star Tours' StarSpeeder 1000, a Human kid also used a camera with the flash option activated at a Mon Calamari and Wookiee passenger, disorienting them, resulting in the mom scolding him.
Behind the scenesEdit
It eventually got an "appearance" of sorts in canon with the ride Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, although only twice: First as an image in a random piece of luggage in the x-ray scanner equipment that G2-9T was overseeing, and later destroyed, and second in the video that aired just prior to the Star Tours ride allowing passengers onto the ride.
