Why can't I select my camera in camera view?

I hate to ask this, but I lost the ability to select my camera by right-clicking on my camera window (while in camera view). I have to go to an outside view (top), click on the camera, and then return to camera view, in order to manipulate my camera positioning if I want to do it while viewing through the camera. What gives?

Or you could just select it in the outliner as well. All I know is that it happens from time to time and I have no good answer for you really.

Well, at least I know it’s not just me. If anyone knows how to avoid/fix this, I’d really appreciate it. Thanks!

It may be that your camera is on a different layer. If you are viewing layer 1 and your camera is on layer 3, you can still see from the camera by pressing NUMPAD 0, but you will not be able to select it.
