Camera Class

Specifies what portion of the 3D scene is rendered by the Viewport3DVisual or Viewport3D element.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media.Media3D
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public ref class Camera abstract : public Animatable, 
	IFormattable
This class is abstract; see Inheritance Hierarchy for derived non-abstract classes usable in XAML.

The Transform property enables the Camera to be positioned, oriented, and animated independently of the camera's derived type.

The following excerpt shows an instance of PerspectiveCamera.
