107 Camilla is one of the biggest main belt asteroids. It orbits within the Cybele Group, beyond most of the main belt asteroids. It has a very dark surface and is made of carbonate. It was found by N. R. Pogson on November 17, 1868, and named after Camilla, Queen of the Volsci in Roman mythology.

- Axis ratios (rounded to nearest 5 km) based on lightcurve analysis of Torppa et al. (2003), however taking IRAS mean diameter is inconsistent with the maximum value of the short axis obtained in Marchis et al. (2006). Hence, presumably IRAS measurements were taken of a large face. Therefore, anchoring absolute size by reuqiring the shortest axis to be no larger than the maximum allowed by Marchis et al. (2006).
