      The most important part of the camera is the lens. When sunlight hits something, the light bounces off in all directions. The lens (the glass part) of the camera is curved so that when this light hits it it is all focused on to a small part inside the camera, where the picture is formed. This is similar to how your eye works! There’s lots of info here if you’d like to know some more: https://electronics.howstuffworks.com/camera.htm đŸ™‚
