People associate some meaning to camera where as we mean that it is any
device that can help in capturing a still image. If you want, you can use
"scanner" or "ImageInputDevice" or any such generic name.

I don't see how changing the keyword "camera" to "Still Image Capture
Device" would help developers. It is a lot longer, contains whitespace (i.e.
is against established naming conventions), is case sensitive, and much
harder to remember.

I suggest we leave it as is.
