A photographer at Flourish and Blotts was taking pictures of Gilderoy Lockhart for the Daily Prophet.

Colin Creevey’s camera is apparently a Muggle device, although since it works at Hogwarts, it must not have any electrical parts.

The camera emitted a cloud of purple smoke with each flash (CS4).

Bozo, Rita Skeeter's photographer, also has one (GF18).

During Colin's first year he took plenty of pictures of Harry, much to Harry's chagrin. Although the camera is non-magical, the pictures he takes do move because he develops them in a special potion (CS6)



Colin's camera itself may be a Muggle camera but enchanted to work taking magical photographs.
