Photography’s history is rooted in the constant endeavor to capture and preserve moments in time. Dating back to ancient China and Greece, Camera Obscura is a technique in which a pinhole or tiny lens is used to project an image of a scene upside down onto a viewing surface. Little did the ancients know, this development would initiate a cycle of innovation that would last centuries, culminating into modern digital cameras. Compounding technological and chemical advancements have enabled us to capture images in an astounding number of ways throughout time. The following takes a look at some of the key moments in photography’s celebrated history, all leading up to the cameras of today, where we will touch on the necessary batteries to keep your camera powered for the perfect shot.
