Get ready to smile! June 29 is National Camera Day, a special day dedicated to celebrating the transformation of photography from a complex art mastered by scientists to an integral part of our daily lives. The word “photography” itself originates from two Greek words that, when combined, mean “writing with light.” This beautifully captures the essence of what a camera enables us to do: tell stories without relying on words. The roots of photography can be traced back over 800 years to the invention of the camera obscura. This “dark chamber” was essentially a box with a single hole, allowing light to enter and project an image onto the inner surface in the darkness. However, unlike modern photography or Instagram, the image would vanish once the light disappeared. Today, we have come a long way with cameras everywhere we go and how much they help us in our day-to-day life.
Here is a list of a few helpful cameras which keep us safe and secure.
