I'm modeling a phone and need to have a camera positioned where the phone camera is, when I try to join the camera and object it fails with a message telling me the camera doesn't have any mesh data. And all my google searching just brings up how to make a camera track an object which to be clear is not what I am after - I need to simulate the constant position and rotation of the front camera on a phone with respect to the LCD display when the entire phone is moved.

    $\begingroup$ Did you tried with parenting the camera to the object? $\endgroup$ – Carlo Jan 31 at 0:01

    $\begingroup$ Thanks Carlo, so making the camera parent and then locking the camera's transform achieved what I want. If you would care to turn your comment in to an Answer I would be happy to accept it as 'The Answer' $\endgroup$ – norlesh Jan 31 at 0:17

Parenting the camera to the object will solve this problem. You can do this by selecting the camera first, and then selecting the object you want to parent it to. You can parent by pressing CtrlP, and then selecting object (keep transform). This should fix the problem.

Select the objects and keep camera as the active object, then press Ctrl + P to do parenting.
