History of the camera

In 1826 a man captured his first snapshot in France, using a metal plate coated with silver. 12 years later Jacques Daguerre, made a camera and it was made out of copper plate. The metal was covered in Bitumen which is like the concrete on the road.
One of the first camera’s had what looked like a telescope on the front of it. There are many different types of camera and one type from America is called Kodac, which was invented by George Eastmen .
Chemicals are used to develop the pictures. Camera’s have changed alot over the years, starting with them being large and now they are small.
