In 1839 the evolution
of cameras began. The first camera produced in large quantities for the
public. It was a box type, born in Giroux, Paris. It was also known as:
Other types were then
invented in 1840 & 1841, like the Sliding Box Camera, and the All Metal Camera.
Later in 1850 the
accordion type camera was invented.
Time went on more &
more cameras were then invented for better performance, special effects, and picture
quality. As the Stereoscopic Camera in 1853 which had dual lens.
In 1885 some camera
makers started to get a little sneaky. They would create ways for you to hide the
camera. Hidden in a cane handle perhaps, or a clock, a picture, or even a purse.
