Multiview geometry is the study of
two-dimensional images of three-dimensional scenes, a foundational subject in computer vision.
We determine a universal Gröbner basis for the multiview ideal of $n$ generic cameras.
As the cameras move, the multiview varieties vary in a family of dimension $11n-15$.
This family is the distinguished component of a multigraded Hilbert scheme
with a unique Borel-fixed point.
We present a combinatorial study
of ideals lying on that Hilbert scheme.
