Large format camera, which has a ground glass screen at the image plane for viewing and focusing. (see Baseboard, Field camera, Large format , Focusing screen, Monorail & Technical)
A large camera, so-called for the ground-glass viewing screen located on the same plane as the film. This screen, which receives light directly from the picture-taking lens, reveals precisely what the film will record. The typical view camera has four basic structural parts: a bed, the support on which the other parts rest and move, historically a dual track framework although most modern view cameras are monorail; the front, which has various mechanisms that support and allow adjustments to the lens; the back, which has the same freedom of movement as the front but incorporates a ground-glass viewing screen that moves out as a unit to accept a film holder and hold it in place; and the bellows, made of pleated leather or rubber-coated canvas, which provides a light-tight connection between front and back. Instead of bellows, some early view cameras were simply two boxes that could slide into one another.
the "first principles" kind of camera, being a light tight box than can take a lens at the front and a sheet of film (typically 4"x5" or larger) at the back; flexible beyond most people's photographic nightmares (e.g., the film and the lens plane are not parallel by construction, but adjustable).
A type of camera (usually large format, although a few medium format cameras of this type can still be found) in which the image from the lens is focused on a ground glass screen on the back of the camera. All types of view camera are used with sheet films.
a large camera with a camera back that takes 'sheet film', which has to be loaded into 'dark slides' in a darkroom, and placed in position in the camera back before an exposure can be made
a special kind of camera -- one that has fully articulated movements of tilt, swing, shift, and so on
A large format camera that has a front and rear standard, bellows between them, and rides on a rail. The photographers views the image from the rear of the camera on a ground glass screen. The camera is capable of swings, tilts, and shifts, which makes it ideal for architectural photography. Due to its size and weight, a view camera is generally used in a studio setting.
A style of camera consisting of a bellows connecting a lens support and film holder, mounted on a rail or pair of rails. View cameras offer the lens and film planes a great deal of unrestricted physical movement for controlling depth of field and perspective.
A camera with movements in which the taking lens forms an image directly on a ground-glass viewing screen. A film holder is inserted in front of the ground glass for exposure. Also called large-format camera (typically producing images 4x5 inches or greater).
(n) In 3-D modeling, a metaphorical camera that records what is on the image plane and then, much like a video monitor, shows the image on the computer screen. The image from the camera is contained in a port on the computer screen.

The view camera is a type of camera with a very long history (some modern examples are often mistaken for antiques), but they are still used today by professional and amateur photographers who want full control of their images. The view camera is basically a light-tight assembly composed of a flexible mid-section, or bellows, attached to a device that holds a film sheet, photo plate or digital imager at one end (the rear standard) and a similar one that holds the lens at the other end (the front standard). The front and rear standards are not fixed relative to each other (unlike most cameras).
