The LSST camera is a tightly packaged, hermetically-sealed system that is cantilevered into the main beam of the LSST
telescope. It is comprised of three refractive lenses, on-board storage for five large filters, a high-precision shutter, and a
cryostat that houses the 3.2 giga-pixel CCD focal plane along with its support electronics. The physically large optics
and focal plane demand large structural elements to support them, but the overall size of the camera and its components
must be minimized to reduce impact on the image stability. Also, focal plane and optics motions must be minimized to
reduce systematic errors in image reconstruction. Design and analysis for the camera body and cryostat will be detailed.
