The History Of The Camera

Cameras have come more than a long way since their ancient beginnings. The pinhole camera, simply a light-proof box with a small hole in its side, set the stage for modern day photography as we know it. This simple optical imaging device has progressed over the years into the camera that is most likely on your smartphone today.

A recent Consumer Electronics Association study revealed that consumers took an average of 72 digital photos at the most recent event they attended. 51% of these photos wound up being shared on the internet, either through e-mail or photo-sharing sites.

This infographic reveals the history of cameras and photography that got us to the remarkable level of photo-sharing that we are at today.
