Being dutch myself, i think of a camera as either a video camera or a photo camera. Unfortunately photo camera is considered an incorrect answer here.

To which i do not agree at all. Photo camera is a perfectly valid translation.

Is it only a camera (or its body)? Can't it be a lens or a flash or any gadget that fits to the camera? We are talking about a "photo apparatus", non?
