    First Camera Invented

    Have you ever asked yourself a question: What kind of world could we live in now if no outstanding person had invented the device that could capture the image of a person or a landscape? We could lose a great variety of kinds of art like movie and photography. We could not have an opportunity to look through the magazines with photos of some celebrities that we see at every step while walking along the streets. Such notions like show- and model-business could have no sense at all! No cinema, no photos, no recollections remained after crazy holidays, school years, University studies…parents, grandparents, people that are no longer alive-it all could be lost…

    Luckily nowadays we have all the necessary equipment that helps us to prevent the things mentioned above happen. First, roll-film cameras, then digital ones, webcams, and today the market offers us a wide range of cell phones equipped with certain cameras as well. We got used to all these things and take them for granted though few know what the first camera invented was like, when it was “born”, and thanks to whom.

    First Camera InventedIt is believed that the very idea of creating such a device appeared long ago, before the middle ages. An Arab mathematician named Ibn Al-Haytham created the first model of camera, but the principle of its building was well known even earlier, in Aristotle period. Sounds quite impressive, isn’t it?

    But in fact the first pictures appeared relatively not so long ago. 1826 was the year when the Frenchmen Charles and Vincent Chevalier built the first camera that COULD produce photos, but the principle of making pictures themselves was created by a different person - Joseph Nicephore Niepce. First Camera InventedOnly 58 years later the prototype of a modern device (nowadays known as Kodak) was made by George Eastman. Though the history of this very “stuff” is rather long, a guess we can easily call THIS one the first REAL camera invented.

    The time passes, things and people change, requirements grow. Some 50 years ago our grandparents could not imagine the possibility of having their (or somebody else’s) picture taken and seeing what has come out of it right away. It seems ridiculous to our generation, we got accustomed to it and see no “magic”. Still some people may feel some nostalgia for the past, e.g. while watching movies with Charlie Chaplin, and notice all the charm in those huge boxes and strange flash guns, that were used to take photos.

      ~not loose, but lose (Paragraph 1, Line 6)
      ~not impressing, but impressive (Paragraph 3, Last line)

    3. holly Says:

      hey people whats up? how are you.. ilove my fake name!

    4. holly Says:

      a actually agree with Lyndzee because the page is really confusing and a little unclear… please edit. thanks =)

    5. lola Says:

    7. alora Says:

      i am doing a history day project and this is the place i will not go to any more considering the last coment i think i will look at the info..

    8. kristi Says:

      I agree with lyndzee… this page doesnt make a whole lot of sense… i am also a teen doing a project on photography. the history and the first camera… And you should make it more understandable to a more range of ages of people… thank you :)

    9. Cassie Says:

      I am a teen doing a report too but wasn’t the idea of photography started in the enlightenment period when issac newton discovered that white light consists of many colors in 1664, then came the camera obscura,which is latin for dark room?

    10. megann Says:

      i agree with lyndzee , reading this confused me so much..
      all i wanted to know was who invented the first camera and when but i got all this confusion ~

    11. heather Says:

      i think that Cassie is right. in a boook called George Eastman and the story of photographic film by joanne mattern, it says everything about the camera obscur. Leonardo DaVinci actually invented it. I’m also a teen doing a project on the history of camera, and i’m confused because my friend found other people that claim to have made the camera. but it was really DaVinci.

    12. teendoingreport Says:

      i think this website was very good and informative. this website is also very true about the people who started thinking about it was even b4 the middle ages. thank u so much

    13. Nicole Says:

      It doesn’t even say what the name of it was that is so stupid all I want is the name for my gay report

    14. vajj lovin Says:

      that was such an amazing article! it changed my life!

    15. Melissa Says:

      Okay, so who wrote this paragraph, and when was it last updated?? I need to cite this as a source on my project. Thanks :)

    16. Annabelle Says:

      Ya i’m doing a report for NHD (National History Day for you people who don’t know…) on camera and I clicked the link t this site thinking, “Yay finally this is exactly what i’m looking for!” Except I was wrong… This article was hard ot read and difficult understand… I mean i did get facts but I wont know what what i’ll be saying when i read them aloud… Please change to make easier to read and understand… Thank you! ;)

    17. emmamazy Says:

      I am also a teen doing a report on the camera, it’s history, and the inventor, and it seems that there’s no one inventor because it kept being built on by different people. Every source that I’ve tried to use gives me different information and I’m pretty confused now lol. I hope that everyone’s report went well, mine sure doesn’t look like it’s going to.

    18. Taylor. Says:

      umm; actually; all of this makes sense. there is more than one camera out there, and this just gives you more of a veriaty, like which camera are you looking for. and what not. i don’t see how you guys can’t understand this. hahaa. :) odd.

    19. Sara Says:

      I’m not doing a report or anything for ware I have to, but this is really interesting, isn’t it weird thinking that cameras exsisted back in the early 1800’s? I mean that long ago! More than 200 years ago! It’s just fasinating.
