The camera is an entity in Minecraft that is capable of capturing and storing images. In Minecraft: Education Edition, it works together with the portfolio item to create collections of photos. It’s interesting to note that cameras can be killed because they’re an entity. Cameras can also take damage like other mobs, because they are entities.
You’re supposed to use the camera from the inventory. It will then take the first-person screenshot. The camera can also be placed somewhere creating a camera entity that can track the user, and take pictures from the camera's perspective. Photos that are taken with the camera appear in the portfolio. Close-up pictures can be taken by pressing the shift key.
