The J-PAS (Javalambre Physics-of-the-Accelerating-Universe Astrophysical Survey) project will perform a five-year survey of the northern sky from a new 2.5m telescope in Teruel, Spain. We describe the design concept of a complete cryogenic camera with a mosaic focal plane and 1.2 gigapixel science array which is to be commercially supplied. The focal plane is contained within a novel liquid-nitrogen-cooled vacuum cryostat, with proximity drive electronics designed to achieve a 4 e- readout noise from the 224-channel CCD system.
