First Camera Invented



Are you a Photographer? or a Big Fan of capturing every moment on camera?

We believe you should read this one …

Do you know how the idea of cameras and photography started?








The basic concept of photography was around when an Iraqi scientist developed something called the camera obscura in the 11th century, yet that was just the concept, cameras back then didn’t exactly record images down, it just projected them to another surface upside down, though they could have traced to create an accurate drawing/image needed for the real object needed to be captured

The first use of the obscura was in a tent to project an image from out side the tent into the darkened area, so it was a war thing obviously.




Permanent Images

The photography that been well known in our current time started first in 1830’s in France,





Joseph Nicéphore Niépce created the first recorded image that doesn’t fade away quickly by using a portable obscura to expose a pewter plate coated with bitumen to light.




Who owned the cameras back then?


This wasn’t so viral between people just like now,

Camera’s were only handed by the richest people and the Professionals also and it was one of the biggest deals back then once it came out, until in 1880,  Company called Kodak started by George Eastman



Eastman created a flexible roll film that shaped as a contained box camera that held a 100 film exposures with a single small lens and no focusing adjustment.

Users used to take pictures by the camera and get back to the factory for the film to develop and print it for him. And this was the mostly trended that time and did not need a rich person only to buy, even much of an inexpensive for the average person to afford.
