People value cameras in a variety of ways. They’re great for recording memories and experiences that can be saved in both soft and physical copies. The evolution of the camera from a room-size box to what it is now has taken a lot of work, trial and error, and the participation of multiple people.
It’s fascinating to consider how far it has progressed from its inception to its current state. The inventors set out to create the camera that would outperform previous cameras. In his book “Book of Optics,” written in 1021, Iraqi scientist and writer Ibn described a device is resembled in many ways, signaling the start of the thousand-mile journey that led to the development of the modern camera.
Johann Zahn invented the first portable camera in 1685. For the next 130 years or more, not much progress was made in the evolution. The majority of attempts to create cameras in between failed miserably. Joseph Nicephore Niepce, the first photographer, did not take his first photograph until 1814.
As a result, Johann Zahn and Joseph Nicephore Niepce share credit for the invention of the first camera. Nicephore’s photograph was not lasting. It was shot with a camera he built himself, on silver chloride-coated paper. On the paper, the areas that were not exposed to light went dark.
