Description: This camera is good for when you join a map, it gives you a view of the map before you join a team
Making a camera in Counter-Strike:Source is pretty easy it seems.
Just take a Point_Viewcontrol entity have it Target a info_target entity.

Example: Place a info_target entity and name it (EX: cam1a) ,then make a Point_Viewcontrol entity,
and in the properties window select the Entity to look at parameter - select the name
of the info_target (EX: cam1a). also in the properties window select the hold time
(amount of time camera looks at the info_target entity).

These cameras are good for when a player joins a map, they can have a view of an area of the map.
