I let too much time slip by and I can't remember exactly what I said in regards to
Why can't we say, "There is my camera on the table." or "There is the camera on the table."
I think I said that "There is ..." is used when making general discriptions of a scene or setting. (a camera meaning one of many possible cameras.) When you use defining words such as the or my, we're no longer talking in a general sense and can't use that form.
