What Camera Should I Buy?
Photography is the art of creating images by the action of electromagnetic radiation. The lens helps focusing the light reflected from material stuff to create photos. That is the whole magic of cameras!
The first camera invented in the world:
Alexander Wolcott invented the first camera in the world. There are some rumors about Alexander Wolcott not being the first one to invent the first camera, but he was the one to get a patent for the first camera in 1839. And, by the way, the man was also a dentist. How cool is that?
Cameras Vs. Smartphones:
Most of the people nowadays tend to use their phones to take pictures, especially with the “selfie” and Instagram culture. But despite all of that, the value of a camera never went down. Cameras give you a much better picture quality and a much better performance. Check out the example below. The image on the right was taken by a digital camera while a smartphone took the one on the left.
Cameras do help us capture beautiful moments so that we don’t forget about them, even if we are a little older and our memory became a little hazy. Pictures will help you freeze moments too when you are nostalgic. So if you want to take better photos, put your phone down and pick up an excellent camera to do the job.
