In 1826 a man in France took the first photograph. He took the photo using a metal plate covered in bitumen .

Then 12 years later a man called Jacques Daguerre improved his camera by using a copper plate coated with silver, instead of a metal plat coated with bitumen. Jacques Daguerre made his camera’s lens work like a telescope.

In 1888 George Eastman made a small hand held camera, using celluloid film. In 1990 a box camera called ‘‘ the Brownie’’ was invented by the Eastman Kodak Company. From 1920-1940 better cameras were made with expensive lens in Germany. Most cameras are now made in Japan.
