I have grown very fond of Photography. Here are some of my photos that I have taken over the last 2 years.
I have used a Nokia Cell phone camera to take all photo's.
Great photography is like great woodworking in that you don't get a good product unless you have the patience to wait for just the right situation. The mental artist in us finds the moment and the camera paints the picture! All we have to do is to capture the moment in time.
I love Emmarentia Dam and the National Botanical Gardens at Little Falls - two of my favourite places to take most of my photo's. My garden is the next best place to look for subject to photograph.
Wikipedia.History of the camera Digital cameras.
The first recorded attempt at building a digital camera was in 1975 by Steven Sasson, an engineer at Eastman Kodak.
The camera weighed 8 pounds (3.6 kg), recorded black and white images to a cassette tape, had a resolution of 0.01 megapixels (10,000 pixels), and took 23 seconds to capture its first image in December 1975. The prototype camera was a technical exercise, not intended for production.
The first true digital camera that recorded images as a computerized file was likely the Fuji of 1988, which recorded to a 16 MB internal memory card that used a battery to keep the data in memory. This camera was never marketed in the United States, and has not been confirmed to have shipped even in Japan.
The first commercially available digital camera was the 1990 Dycam Model 1; it also sold as the Logitech Fotoman. It used a CCD image sensor, stored pictures digitally, and connected directly to a computer for download.
The first flyby spacecraft image of Mars was taken from Mariner 4 on July 15, 1965 with a camera system designed by NASA/JPL. It used a video camera tube followed by a digitizer, rather than a mosaic of solid state sensor elements, so it was not what we usually define as a digital camera, but it produced a digital image that was stored on tape for later slow transmission back to earth.
