Who Invented the Camera Phone

This is an awesome story of the engineer who invented the first camera phone, such a great reason to share a moment, something we do today every single day. 

A camera phone is a mobile phone which is able to capture photographs and often record video using one or more built-in digital cameras. The first camera phone was sold in 2000 in Japan, a Sharp J-SH04 J-Phone model, although some argue that the SCH-V200 and Kyocera VP-210 Visual Phone, both introduced months earlier in South Korea and Japan respectively, are the first camera phones.[1]

Most camera phones are simpler than separate digital cameras. Their usual fixed-focus lenses and smaller sensors limit their performance in poor lighting. Lacking a physical shutter, some have a long shutter lag. Photoflash is typically provided by an LED source which illuminates less intensely over a much longer exposure time than a bright and near-instantaneous flash strobe. Optical zoom[2] and tripod screws are rare and none has a hot shoe for attaching an external flash. Some also lack a USB connection or a removable memory card. Most have Bluetooth and WiFi, and can make geotagged photographs. Some of the more expensive camera phones have only a few of these technical disadvantages, but with bigger image sensors (a few are up to 1″), their capabilities approach those of low-end point-and-shoot cameras. In the smartphone era, the steady sales increase of camera phones caused point-and-shoot camera sales to peak about 2010 and decline thereafter. Most model lines improve their cameras every year or two.

Most smartphones only have a menu choice to start a camera application program and an on-screen button to activate the shutter.[3] Some also have a separate camera button, for quickness and convenience. A few camera phones are designed to resemble separate low-end digital compact cameras in appearance and to some degree in features and picture quality, and are branded as both mobile phones and cameras. information provided by Wikipedia.org 

Who Invented Photography

These are a few youtube videos which completely explain who and when photography was invited. I’ve seen hundreds if not more videos on photography and where it comes from, but these are the best. The form of art that get used the most today to save and share our everyday, special moments and even some things we shouldn’t share, lol I love photography and will try to learn and share as much as I can. I hope you can enjoy this journey with me. 

Photography is the science, art, application, and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically by means of an image sensor, or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film.[1]

Typically, a lens is used to focus the light reflected or emitted from objects into a real image on the light-sensitive surface inside a camera during a timed exposure. With an electronic image sensor, this produces an electrical charge at each pixel, which is electronically processed and stored in a digital image file for subsequent display or processing. The result with photographic emulsion is an invisible latent image, which is later chemically “developed” into a visible image, either negative or positive depending on the purpose of the photographic material and the method of processing. A negative image on film is traditionally used to photographically create a positive image on a paper base, known as a print, either by using an enlarger or by contact printing.

Photography is employed in many fields of science, manufacturing (e.g., photolithography), and business, as well as its more direct uses for art, film and video production, recreational purposes, hobby, and mass communication… information provided by Wikipedia.org

Photos on a Prisma Filter Kick #myart

For the last few month’s I’ve added Prisma filters to a lot of my photography, these are just a few of them. They turn out in a fun way and so artistically that it’s made me want to explore other types of photography, such as long exposures and even try to do a little painting. Blogging is not something I do often these days, but I do share photos and photos with Prisma filters every day on Instagram. These and a lot more on Instagram instagram.com/leonidasbratini

The Story of My #Reflections

If I could go back and relive the last few years of my life, I would relive each moment in exactly the same way. This simple realization emerged from deep internal reflection. Some people exercise or practice yoga, others meditate; I engage in walking meditation practice – I put on headphones with a loud music and go on long walks. During my most recent walks, I have entered around emotional reflections of a breakup with the person I felt I was going to spend my life with began to surface.

As most people, I wondered if there were things I could have done differently, was it my fault? what did I do wrong? One day while out reflecting, a spark of inspiration was triggered and I began to capture moments of reflection through the photo. I’ve read somewhere that with the technology of today anyone can take a picture, but it’s the emotions behind them that make it into a photo. These are my photos #reflections.
