What the camera?

A camera is an optical instrument for recording image, which may be stored locally, transmitted to another location, or both. The camera like human eyes. (Picture on the right side is the first camera from the 19th century.)


The first camera is invented by Nicéphore Niépce in 1816. He used a very small camera of his own making, and a piece of paper coated with silver chloride, which darkened where it was exposed to light.
