Photography historyBy Sam LoftusPress to go to next pageBefore camerasBefore the camera was invented they painted everything from landscapes to portraits taking hours to days to finish.

The first cameraThe first camera was used for huge picture of towns or cities but out of the weather. modern cameras evolved from the camera obscura.

The second camera design.This camera is dating back to the ancient Chinese and ancient Greeks, which uses a pinhole or lens to project an image of the scene outside and upside-down onto a viewing surface. this was built in the 18th century.

First none painting pictureThe first successful photograph from a camera was made in 1816 by Nicphore Nipce using a very small camera of his own making and a piece of paper coated with silver chloride (which darkened where it was exposed to light). Later, in 1826, he used a sliding wooden box camera made by Charles and Vincent Chevalier in Paris. He made his first camera photograph in 1826 by coating a pewter plate with bitumen and exposing the plate in this camera.

first practical photographic methodLouis Daguerre and Joseph Nicphore Nipce (who died before their invention was completed) started to invent the first practical photographic method, which was named the daguerreotype, in 1836. Daguerre coated a copper plate with silver, then treated it with iodine vapor to make it sensitive to light. The image was developed by mercury vapor and fixed with a strong solution of ordinary salt (sodium chloride).

Dry plate methodCollodion dry plates had been available since 1855, is was built by Dsir van Monckhoven.

Kodak and the birth of filmpioneered by George Eastman, who started manufacturing paper film in 1885, His first camera, which he called the "Kodak," was first offered for sale in 1888.

Cameras sizes and extras.As tecnoagy advanced the camera stared to get smaller and smaller also eye views where added to see what you were taking a picture of. , the Model 20 Swinger of 1965 was instant camera.

Polaroid cameraThe instant camera(or polaroid camera) is a type of camera that generates a developed film image. These dominated in the 80s. I think this is because you could get the image instantly and do what you wanted to do to it straight away.

electricalWhen electricity became small and portable Sony added a flash to there cameras to get better light it was called the Sony Mavica this camera was a revolutionary to the time period, then many followed.

The arrival of true digital camerasThe first true digital camera that recorded images as a computerized file was likely the Fuji DS-1P of 1988, it used a 16 MB internal memory card and a battery to keep the data in. but as again tecnloagy got smaller so did the camera.1988 2013
