фотоаппарат  [fo-ta-a-pa-RAT] (masculine noun) – a camera

Сейчас большинство людей используют цифровой фотоаппарат. = Nowadays most people use a digital camera.


Please, note that the word "камера" exists in Russian, but it usually means "videocamera" and not a camera to take pictures, so it's a "false friend".
