     Continuity Camera is a new feature in macOS Mojave and iOS 12 that allows you to open your iOS device's camera from your Mac, then immediately transfer the photo that was taken over to a document that you're working on. So, for instance, if you're working on a Pages document, and you need a photo of something that's nearby, you can activate Continuity Camera, take the photo with your iPhone, then immediately see that photo pop up in the document on your Mac.
