Did you know?

The history of the camera starts long before the existence of photography.

The camera obscura (or pinhole camera) is credited in the 10th century to Arab scholar Ibn Al-Haytham, but there are references to the camera obscura in Chinese texts from 400 BC and Aristotle. This optical device uses light to project an inverted image on a surface. With the invention of lenses in the 17th century, the camera obscura was used to project larger images to help draw and paint.

Magic lanterns came into use around the same time, which projected images onto larger surfaces and became a form of entertainment. In the 1820s, Joseph Niepce captured the first image with a camera obscura, though it took years to create a permanent image. Louis Daguerre improved the process and created the first permanent image in 1839. By 1850, in New York alone there were over 70 daguerreotype studios.

Henry Fox Talbot created further improvements and made it possible to reproduce images, and in 1889, George Eastman created the film, which was flexible and unbreakable. Today, digital cameras are everywhere, and photographs are still a hugely important part of our society.
