Camera Data
===========

This module provides access to B{Camera Data} objects in Blender.

Example::

  from Blender import Camera, Object, Scene
  c = Camera.New('ortho')     # create new ortho camera data
  c.lens = 35.0               # set lens value
  cur = Scene.getCurrent()    # get current scene
  ob = Object.New('Camera')   # make camera object
  ob.link(c)                  # link camera data with this object
  cur.link(ob)                # link object into scene
  cur.setCurrentCamera(ob)    # make this camera the active"

  The Camera Data object
  ======================
    This object gives access to Camera-specific data in Blender.

  @cvar mode: The mode flags: B{or'ed value}: 'showLimits':1, 'showMist':2.
