fontawesome package offers access to icons included in Font Awesome project. It works with XeTeX or LuaTeX.

Requested icons looks like:

enter image description here

\verb+\faCameraRetro+ & \faCameraRetro \\
\verb+\faTable+ & \faTable \\
\verb+\faFile+ & \faFile \\

Thanks, It's exactly what I was looking for. – PHPst Jun 13 '13 at 13:02

By viewing ifsym.sty it is clear that \PaperPortrait requires you to load

\usepackage[misc]{ifsym}% http://ctan.org/pkg/ifsym

Following the advise of Symbol or dingbat of a calculator?, The Noun Project provides some camera SVG images.

enter image description here

Additionally, OpenClipArt also provides some camera SVG images.

These can be converted to other acceptable image formats (like PDF or TikZ) for inclusion in your document. See How to include SVG diagrams in LaTeX?

Somewhere I read that you are making a package from icons of Noun Project, is it correct? – PHPst Jul 14 '12 at 2:46
@Reza: I mentioned something in my interview about making a package related to graphics, but not something about the Noun Project. – Werner Jul 14 '12 at 2:52
@Reza: I think perhaps you are thinking of doncherry's comment about Martin Scharrer's at Symbol or dingbat of a calculator?. – Peter Grill Oct 7 '12 at 21:37
@PeterGrill Yes, It's right – PHPst Oct 8 '12 at 4:17
