1 Answer 1


The first sentence is grammatically correct. Using the word "any" implies that the noun that follows it (in this case "camera") will be plural.

Note: "any" can be used with singular nouns afterwards, but usually (dare I say only) when that noun is intangible, for example "I don't have any knowledge on the subject."
