A short history of photographic cameras before they went digital

Before the mobile phone had its own fancy camera, there were clunky digital cameras. And before clunky digital cameras were these beauties! It’s hard to believe now, but there was a time when digital cameras were just a futuristic dream and we all had to rely on photo shops to develop our film (remember film?). Actual photo shops, not Photoshop.

This is a condensed history on photographic cameras by Visual.ly, years before the digital camera became the norm. It goes all the way back to the 1800s when cameras were large and boxy – and no doubt expensive. Take a look at the incredible transformation of the camera through the years. You might be surprised just how far this gadget has come, and it will definitely make you wonder how much further this technology can be taken, too.
