    Both have lenses.
    Both stop working if they catch fire.

    An eye requires a blood supply.
    A camera doesn't.

    Lol physics... (if you're doing AQA this should be P3!)
    Similarities: Both have lenses that can focus; pupil from a human eye can expand or contract to adjust the amount of light that enters (same as shutter in camera). Both produce upside down real images.

    Differences: Eye has variable focus lens; camera has fixed focus lens. Eye elongates and contracts the lens in order to focus while the camera moves the lens backward and forward to focus.
    Hope this helps!x
    Surprised I even remember any of this...
