Summary/Abstract: The study deals with a technical perception of a device (a camera) in whose centre is as an end product a technical picture and its analogical codes. We indicate them analogical in that sense, since they can develop an ancient experience of humanity with a mirror. A photography and film substitute properties of the mirror and establish a new relationship between „ mirror“ as a supercode and its reporter. They create codes, which record the reporter in the status where "here and now“ (reality) the reporter „was“ (photographic and film picturing). We distinguish two-dimensional flat codes in case of photograph, and three- dimensional flat codes in case of film. We speak first of all about flat configurations. The influence of techno – perception on our natural perception can be shown on various manipulation forms, and on the arranging of pre- aparatus reality (for a camera or film camera) for the purpose of its shooting, since only in the status of a technical picture, the reality reaches an intentional meaning, or on the contrary, the omnipresence of technical pictures retroactively determines our behaviour in the natural reality.
