Have you seen old sepia photographs? Do you own any? Probably you have seen them at a friend’s house or have them hanging on your featured wall or may be safely kept somewhere in the attic. The family portraits that exuberate so much of romance and so much awe! You may sometimes fathom your great grandparents and their progeny actually taking time to dress up and sit in rows like that to be photographed. What a contrast to today where we click at least tens of photos without even blinking our eyes using our smart phone camera!
A long drawn history:
The first references to the photographic equipments dates back as early as the eighteenth century. The word camera is derived from a Latin word ‘camera obscura’ which etymologically means ‘the dark chamber’. It is so called because the original set up of projecting an image of the world on a photographic paper was done through a black box like equipment which would then be mounted on a high stand.
The lens man would cover the black box entirely with a black cloth to disallow light and also put his head into the cloth while trying to capture the photograph. Light plays a major role in using this equipment and in this way its working is most similar to the working of the human eye.
A primer of DSLR Cameras:
The abbreviation stands for Digital Single Lens Reflex Camera which is a combination of using a single photographic lens and an imaging sensor to produce an image or a photograph which is very similar to the actual life picture. The equipment does not use any photographic paper or film that was used in the previous models.
