The Evolution of Cameras

The world’s first photograph was made in 1814 by Joseph Nicephore Niepce, but the origin of the camera lies in the history much deeper. In 1021, Ibn al-Haytham published his Book of Optics, which in detail described the mechanism of the camera obscura. This device had a lens or pinhole to project an inverted image on the surface.

Later, when the scholar-monk Roger Bacon discussed a camera in his publication Perspectiva in 1267, he explained in detail the theological material on how the devil by miracle can penetrate through a tiny hole. Not surprisingly that after such statements by the scientist some tribes still believe that photos can steal the soul.

Let’s fast forward for a few centuries before the advent of the professional camera in the 1900s. Pavilion camera Korona was a sleek wooden camera made by Gundlach in Rochester, New York. Despite the name, pavilion camera was an outside camera, which was conveniently folded up for transportation. This large-format film camera had a high quality mahogany body and bright red leather bellows.

Cameras at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries were usually of two types – a regular one and a camera-box. Kodak Brownie is an excellent example of a camera- box, while the camera Ansco Buster Brown filmed on film images with a size of a postcard.

According to some sources, Kodak was going to be called NoDak, short for North Dakota. Others claim that the name was chosen by George Eastman because he liked the sound of k. Yet there is a third theory that Kodak was the sound of the camera shutter.

Despite the amazing name, Kodak has successfully moved forward its innovative design of a folding camera in the 1930s. These cameras were easy to carry and stack, and the project turned out to be quite successful, giving the world such popular cameras as the Brownie 620 and Bantam.

The top of the Camera Univex Mercury released in 1938 was crescent-shaped, behind which was the mechanism of setting a unique metal gate. Interchangeable Lens Tricor complemented the modern design as well.

Design in the form of an accordion remained ever since the very first camera. And the gradual improvement of the design can be called rather revolutionary than evolutionary development of photographic equipment.

Derby-Lux camera was designed in 1945. The device was much ahead of its time: it was made of aluminum, and its design is somewhat similar to the one that Apple would use many years later for the series of MacBook Pros.

By the 1960s, it was possible to see a variety of designs of options cameras on the world market.

Today, using the memory card, you can make thousands of photos, save only one of them or delete all of them, and you can do that again and again.

The world’s first photograph was made in 1814 by Joseph Nicephore Niepce, but the origin of the camera lies in the history much deeper. In 1021, Ibn al-Haytham published his Book of Optics, which in detail described the mechanism of the camera obscura. This device had a lens or pinhole to project an inverted image on the surface.
