The Camera (a.k.a. Camera of Death) is a secret weapon in Cry of Fear, unlocked after beating the game in any difficulty with any ending under 2 hours and 30 minutes.

It does not damage enemies, but freezes them, being really useful when running away from Sawrunner or any other potential threat. It does not require ammunition.
