A “view” represents a single “window” display of a document. A view could contain one or many “viewports”, as is the case with layout views. Standard Rhino modeling views have one viewport.

A “viewport” displays geometry with a given projection.

A “camera” consists of several pieces of data (location, target, up direction, etc.) that are stored on a viewport and that define how the geometry in the viewport is displayed.

Following up on Dale, you may want to look at the following wiki paper:
