Did you ever wonder when and how did this beautiful device ever come into existence? Before we get into some funny jokes about photography and puns, here are a few important and quick facts about this incredible device, perfect for showing off in front of your photographer friends!
The earliest camera was a room-sized one with space for at least one or more people inside. Over time, this camera gradually evolved into more compact and smaller models.

Post this portable box invention, Johann Zahn invented the first camera in 1685 that was small and quite portable and was practical for photography. Since then, photographic technology saw different clever camera names and versions like daguerreotypes, calotypes, dry plates, film, or negative rolls to the modern-day digital and phone cameras that come with various advanced features and accessories for the ultimate outcome.
