Since the dawn of recorded time it was the Chinese philosopher Mozi who spoke about the Camera Obscura then in 1885 George Eastman called his first camera a Kodak – onto his Brownie – the world’s first mass market device. But it was Steve Sasson a Kodak engineer who was the pioneer of the world first digital camera in December 1975.
Sasson never realised that what he created was a digital revolution. Nowadays our current centuries popular mobile digital click box. No other device has captured the imagination of many millions. With a current flood of mobile phones.
Major cellular phones provide superb quality at the touch of a button. Sassons digital camera converts light into an electrical charge then recorded on a memory card. Nothing short of a modern miracle.
With social media now at the forefront of our centuries communication. It’s pictures that shift emotions either to topple governments or to buy stuff worth millions or just to say hi.
