A Senate cam droid

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.[1] The Hologlide J57 was a model of cam droid used on the planet Tatooine to record the Boonta Eve Classic podracing event.[2] Cam droids equipped with holocams were known as holocam droids, and were used in the New Republic Senate.[3] Cam droids were used during grav-ball matches on Lothal.[4]

During or after 34 ABY,[5] CAM was a cam droid who was a member of the Galactic Society of Creature Enthusiasts alongside the Safari droid SF-R3. They traveled the galaxy in a starship and learned about several species of wildlife. CAM broadcast footage of SF-R3's interactions with creatures[6] across the HoloNet and sent their findings back to the Society.[7] Another cam droid affiliated with the Society was CAM-E who was stationed on the Youngling Care Space Station alongside the Safari droid M1-RE, also known as Miree.[8] CAM-E recorded Miree as she cared for and studied several species of younglings, and CAM-E broadcasted footage[9] across the Holonet.[7]

  5. The Galaxy of Creatures book depicts all episodes of Star Wars Galaxy of Creatures taking place a relatively short time apart. Galaxy of Creatures small logo.png Star Wars Galaxy of Creatures – "Porgs" features porgs on Batuu, a species that Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy's Edge establishes were not present on the planet Batuu until the Resistance brought them there between the events of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens and Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Therefore, porgs must have been introduced to Batuu between those stories, which corresponds to 34 ABY per this reasoning, meaning that the events of Star Wars Galaxy of Creatures take place during or after 34 ABY.
