107 Camilla is one of the largest main-belt asteroids. It orbits within the Cybele Group, beyond most main-belt asteroids. It has a very dark surface and primitive carbonaceous composition. It was discovered by N. R. Pogson on November 17, 1868, and named after Camilla, Queen of the Volsci in Roman mythology.<ref>Lutz D. Schmadel, Dictionary of Minor Planets Names, p.25.</ref>
10µ radiometric data collected from Kitt Peak in 1975 gave a diameter estimate of 209 km.<ref name="Morrison1976"/> Lightcurve analysis indicates that Camilla's pole most likely points towards ecliptic coordinates (β, λ) = (+51°, 72°) with a 10° uncertainty,<ref name="TorKaaMic03"/> which gives it an axial tilt of 29°.
