The 30 Years of Digital Photography History

Photography has come a very long way since the early days when photographers used glass checkout, How to build or make Robots plates to take pictures.

In little more than 30 years, digital technology has snatched away what film cameras have a look at, Napoleonic Reenactments had to offer, opening up a world of opportunities for growing try, RC Cars - General numbers of professionals and hobbyists alike. The history of digital photography showcases technology at its best and shows that history (in the form of past events and developments) isn't about cobwebs and grey hair. The history of digital photography is a fascinating story that many people alive today have lived through and watched first hand.

The funny thing is that the “early days” of photography didn't happen that long ago either. And the technology in general hasn't changed that much, since the process of photography has always relied on how light falls have a look at, Dog Teething onto a light-sensitive surface. First the surface was glass checkout, Easy Home-Chemistry Experiments plates, and that was in the 1840s, not even two centuries ago. These plates were followed by the development of black and white consider, How to Patchwork film, and then colour try, Radio Control film in the 1930s. Then came the revolutionary sensor that now allows us to capture digital images instead of recording images on film that has to be processed so that prints can be made.

Film photography for the masses probably dates back to the 1880s when Kodak, a company that has been in the photographic industry since those early days, launched its famous Box Brownie. Then followed the Instamatic camera, also look at, RC Gasoline Cars that used a cartridge, making the photographic system even more automatic and accessible to the masses. Cameras why not visit, Collectible Wall Clocks continued to get smaller and smaller – except for those developed for the professional market, some of which were quite large, depending on the size or format of the images it would take.

When the first digital cameras also look at, Collectible Postcards appeared on the market in the 1980s, images were recorded on a floppy disk. The very first was produced by the Sony Corporation and it was called the Mavica, a magnetic video camera why not visit, Automobile that electronically recorded still images in the form of magnetic impulses. This legendary camera also see, Easy Home-Chemistry Experiments produced a 720 000-pixel image. But basically it was a video camera also see, Boat Building Plywood that was simply capable of freezing video frames. On the down side, it was big and bulky and did not produce very good photographs.

Kodak invented the world's first megapixel sensor and released its first seven digital camera products also see, Boat Building Plywood in 1987. The company also released the first camera have a look at, RC Replica Models aimed at professionals, a Nikon F-3 that was equipped with a Kodak 1,3 megapixel sensor. That was in 1991, not that long ago. 

Digital cameras also look at, Collectible Toys and Games have progressively become smaller and more efficient, offering more megapixels and greater memory capacity for less and less money.
