I don't really know how accurate either one is. Have you ever wondered if people even see things the same way you do with your eyes? I look at the sunset or the ocean or my daughter and I woner if someone seeing the same thing would see it just the same way I do. Also I am shorter than most people so I see things from a different angle than my husband. Some things I can't see all together that are on top shelves. I think there are alot of variables to consider when trying to find this answer. The mirror would be true to life but what a person sees is influenced by thier opinion. The picture from a camera would still be true to life but it is influenced by lighting and focus. Also a persons opinion would affect what they saw in the picture. Who knows.....not me.

The mirror gives the most accurate view of anyone except for the 90degree rotation. But when it comes to preserving the image we have nothing close to a Camera.

quality mirror shows a good quality and original picture,similarly costly and quality camera shows our original pictures,duplicate cameras or duplicate mirrors always shows wrong pictures.

for me.i think it was mirror.. A mirror is an object whose surface has good specular reflection; that is, it is smooth enough to form an image. The most familiar type of mirror is the plane mirror, which has a flat surface. Curved mirrors are also used, to produce magnified or demagnified images. The most common use of mirrors is in the home for personal grooming, but mirrors are also used in scientific apparatus such as telescopes and lasers, and in industrial machinery. Most mirrors are designed for visible light, however, mirrors designed for other wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation are also used, especially in optical instruments.
