The camera [history]
All cameras [still and motion] share three critical attributes that combined allow us shoot and record visual data. They are the lens, the sensor and the data recorder. Even from the earliest times of photography this has been true, though in the old days of film, a chemical process was used to so that the ‘sensor’ was light sensitive film, and the ‘data recorder’ was a dip into chemicals that revealed the images captured on the film.
