Evolution of Camera In the 1500s, The first pinhole
camera (also called the Camera Obscura) was invented by Alhazen.
Which uses a pinhole or lens to project an image of the scene outside; upside-down onto
a viewing surface. In 1839, The Daguerreotype Camera was invented
Louis Daguerre and Joseph Niépce. They Invented the first practical photographic
method, which was named the daguerreotype.
Focusing was generally via sliding boxes In 1888, George Eastman patents Kodak, the
roll-film camera. The Kodak, was the first camera to use film.
The box camera was very simple and very cheap. In 1914, The first 35mm still camera (also
called “candid” camera ) was developed by Oskar Barnack of German Leica Camera.
Later it became the standard for all film cameras. In 1948, Edwin Land invented the Polaroid
camera which could take a picture and print it in one minute. In 1981, Sony demonstrates the Sony Mavica
— the world’s first digital electronic still camera.
This camera recorded images into a mini disk and then put them into a video reader.
Images could be displayed to a television monitor or color printer. In 1986,The first true digital camera that
recorded images as a computerized file was likely the Fuji DS-1P,
which recorded to a 16 MB internal memory card that used a battery to keep the data
in memory. In 1991, Kodak released the first professional
digital camera system, which was of a great use for photojournalists.
It was a modified Nikon F-3 camera with a 1.3 megapixel sensor.
The first to have a megpixel And from then on, Cameras have been improving
to what we now use in our daily lives. And That’s the evolution of the Camera. Thank you!
