Transcript of The Camera Stem

By: Maurice Angly and Ethan Wu The Progression to the Modern Camera The First evidence of optical projection devices was in the 5th century B.C. This was accomplished with the use of a pinhole and a dark room in order to display an inverted image of the outside Modernly, pinhole projection is used mostly to view solar eclipses The first image captured photographically was in 1826 by Nicéphore Niépce. This was later advanced to the camera obscura which used mirrors to project the image onto a pane of glass which an artist could then trace to produce a physical image The first camera to use film was invented in 1910. The first instant camera was invented in 1938. The first truly modern digital camera was produced in 1988. The invention of the camera is not widely seen as an invention by one person, but a joint development of many key figures, each contributing a step in a very long journey to todays modern cameras. History Development The purpose of the camera is to capture an image of a moment in time, the very first prior inventions that led to the camera were used mainly the same way they are today, except to much lesser effectivity. The invention of the camera has impacted society in a positive way in the fact that we can now visually preserve a moment in History and therefore that part of history can be seen much later in time. The camera has not exclusively had any negative impacts on society but there are cases where cameras are misused and pictures are taken that the user might later regret but that is basically user error. -Example: The Camera
-Science: The Lense must have be manufactured and refined in order to effectively refract light to display an image.
-Math: The mirrors inside the modern camera must be placed at precise angles in order to effectively display the image being viewed to the photographer.
-Technology: Modern digital camera devices include advanced optical technology in the form of Telegraphic lenses, Video display in the form of a screen for the photographer to view that accurately represents the image being viewed, and modern electrical innovations in the form of the buttons that control the camera.
-Engineering: The camera has been designed and redesigned in order to obtain the best possible performance in the smallest, cheapest device.

Thank you for your viewing of our presentation! "The discovery I have made and which I call Heliography, consists in reproducing spontaneously, by the action of light, with gradations of tints from black to white, the images received in the camera obscura."-Nicephore Niepce Works Cited
