Cam droids, also called hovercams and holocam droids, were repulsorlift droids used as self-motivated recording devices. The proceedings of the Galactic Republic's Senate were constantly recorded by such droids. The Hologlide J57 was a model of cam droid used on the planet Tatooine to record the Boonta Eve Classic podracing event. Cam droids equipped with holocams were known as holocam droids, and were used in the New Republic Senate. Cam droids were used during grav-ball matches on Lothal.
