what is this box that has replaced my camera

i know that i must have done something but i do not know what. every time i hit 0 to view my camera i get this box. in the pitcher it is right behind my camera. i can use shift f and fly around with it. there is only one camera listed in my outline. so what is it? how can i use it?and how do i get my camera view back?

Select the camera and hit ‘ctrl’+0 (number pad 0) This sets the active camera to the camera not the box. Changing the active camera can be usefull in lining up spot lights or in, well, changing the camera.

:slight_smile: thank you much. i spent too much of my life trying to figure out what i did. but now i know.
