The history of photography goes years back to the 1870’s where the first camera was publicly made and released. It started with the Dollmeyer Box Stereo Camera, which is a camera with two or more lenses with a seperate image sensor or film frame for each lens. Then, later in the 1920, the autographic system for roll film was launched by Kodak. At the time of exposure, Kodak allowed photographer’s to add written imformation on the film.
Later, Kodak released the Instamatic 100 Box camera, which was made in the beginning of 1963. The Instamatic was extremely sucessful, introducing a generation to inexpensive photography and spawning numerous imitators.
1977, the Polaroid Instant Camera was invented. The Instant camera is a type of camera which uses self-developing film to create a chemically developed print shortly after taking the photo.
Four years later, Sony released the world’s first electronic still camera, the Sony Mavica Digital Camera. The Mavica, (Magnetic Video Camera), was a brand of Sony cameras which used removable disks as the main recording medium. It was not a digital camera, as it’s CCD sensor produced an analog video signal in the NTSC format at a resolution of 570 x 490 pixels.
Then came the Samsung WB1SOF, which is a 14.7 mega pixel compact camera with the companys own BSI CMOS sensor, a 18x, 24-423mm antically-stabilized lens, 720p HD video recording and a 3 inch LCD screen. The WB1SOF travel-zoom also offers wi-fi capability that allows users to email photos from any hotspot or share them on social networks. This was invented back in 2012. Now, in 2016, the most used camera currently around the world, (excluding the iPhone), is the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, which has a new 30.4 megapixel full frame CMOS sensor that delivers images that are packed with detail. From the brightest highlights and the darkest shadows.
