No, camera lens does not reflect light but it does refract light.

a lens will refract light. a mirror will reflect the light.

Yes, hand lens reflect light.

A camera refracts light on to the screen.

The similarity is in light passing the lens both for the eye and for the camera. The eye lens is passive. The camera shutter controls the amount of light entering the camera. But the eye lens affect the eye only when there is cloudiness of the lens like in cataract.

The filter sits at the end of the lens. All light cannot enter the camera without first going through the lens. And light cannot enter the lens without going through the filter, so the light goes through the fliter, then through the lens, then into the camera

Camera lenses collect light and focus it on an area in the camera that records this image created by the lens. Complex camera lens correct for various kinds of distortion in the light collected.

It focuses the light entering the camera onto the sensor.

The lens is the part of the camera that bends the light and does the focusing.

The lens are the first thing that light touches when entering the camera.

The Lens is what focuses light so that it can be seen as a picture, without the lens the image would be just light with faint shadows

it spreads light rays apart,or it is used in a camera lens.

In a camera, the light from the subject is refracted by the camera lens, and focused on the film or digital receptor inside the camera. The lens is taking the "large image" and shrinking it to a smaller size, and this small image becomes the digital image (or the negative image on film).How a Camera WorksA camera is any sort of light tight chamber (the word camera means "chamber" in Latin) with a pinhole or convex lens in one side. The lens is what "forms" the image on the opposite side of the camera. Your eyes are cameras! They are light-tight chambers with convex lenses which form continuous images on the retinas (light sensitive surfaces) at the backs of your eyeballs. Because of the way light passes through a pinhole or lens, the image is projected to the back of any camera upside down. This is just as true in your eye as it is in your camera! But, you protest, I don't see upside down! No, you don't, because your brain "flips" the image right side up as it comes from your optic nerve. Your digital camera does the same thing electronically before it delivers the image to your viewscreen.Sight, and your camera, works because objects reflect light. Even black objects reflect some light. Lighter colors reflect more. The pinhole or lens in any camera is gathering light as it comes reflected from a scene. The light reflected from the scene is scattering in all directions, but as light from what you see reaches the pinhole or convex lens in your camera or eye, you can try imagining that the light rays from the scene must bendand squash down (we say converge) in order to pass through the pinhole or lens. Inside, the light rays must cross, which is why the image projected to the back is upside down. If the lens is the correct distance (focused) from the back of the camera, the lens will form a sharp image on the side opposite the lens, which can be your retina, film in a film camera, or the sensor in a digital camera.There's lots more to know. See the Related Question, and be sure to check out the Related Link below. It has a fun, easy project for any age for making a pinhole camera that you can look inside and actually see the upside down image projected onto a translucent screen made of waxed paper.

Typically there is a light near the camera lens that indicates that the camera is on.

Actually, the lens on your eye moves just like the lens of a camera to focus light. People who are nearsighted or farsighted have trouble focusing on objects that are very close or very far away. Since the lens on your eye isn't as big as the lens on a camera, it's just harder to observe it moving.

A camera uses a lens, just like the human eye, to focus light from an object onto the sensor or film.

The energy that enters any kind of camera through the lens is called light.

The short focal length of a camera lens is so that the image the lens forms is small and can be focused on a piece of light-sensitive film.

Gathers light and focuses it on the film or sensor.

A camera eye is an eye with a crystalline lens that focuses light. It is found in squid, octopi, and vertebrates. This is similar to the lens arrangement of a camera.

A camera lens may have a shield called a "lens hood" encircling it to prevent strong light entering from the side. Although such side light would not be focused with the image, it could reflect off the internal surfaces of the lenses to cause a "flare" of light within the image. This problem is more critical in lenses with many elements and lenses of long focal length, so we most often see lens hoods on telephoto lenses.

A human eye does the same as a camera lens, but instead, it captures the information in the retina, and sends if through the optic nerve. A camera lens does the same, but, using the light, it sends it through the camera, bouncing off mirrors and arriving to your eye.

A camera (specifically a camera lens) bends light to form an image.
