Evolution of Product Design

  1. 1. Evolution of the Camera Diane Kim and Cody Rosen Introduction to Engineering Design Period 7
  2. 2. The First Camera (Camera Obscura) • Roger Bacon is said to have invented camera obscura, but it was never accepted by scholars. • Johann Zahn created the first camera that was small and portable enough for practical use. • Abu 'Ali al-Hasan ibn al- Haytham (Alhazen) developed the camera obscura. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://mollymonochrome.com/wp- content/uploads/Camera_Obscura_box1.jpg&imgrefurl=http://mollymonochrome.com/ arts-and-crafts/my-cameras-an- essay&usg=__ee2fqKgUOHcaZvAuQGAvMfB5Jn0=&h=648&w=738&sz=37&hl=e n&start=0&zoom=1&tbnid=nPLpCNgsPiSS8M:&tbnh=122&tbnw=140&prev=/im ages%3Fq%3Dcamera%2Bobscura%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Dactive %26sa%3DN%26rls%3Dcom.microsoft:en-us%26biw%3D1003%26bih %3D530%26tbs %3Disch:1&um=1&itbs=1&iact=rc&dur=140&ei=38mHTKGjNcWqngeRiKiyDA&o ei=uMmHTPqUK93qnQeVtZm1Dg&esq=6&page=1&ndsp=16&ved=1t:429,r:12,s :0&tx=105&ty=30&safe=active
  3. 3. First Photograph • The first photograph was created by French researcher Joseph Nicephore Niepce around 1822. • The photograph was created using paper coated with a chemical. • However, the image was not permanent, and it would disappear after a short while. http://www.google.com/imgres? imgurl=http://photography.nationalgeographic.com/staticfiles/NGS/Shared/StaticFile s/Photography/Images/Content/niepce-first-photo-niepce1826- lw.jpg&imgrefurl=http://digg.com/news/science/The_World_s_First_Photograph_PIC &usg=__A2oY7imPlsWYh5tOTZFqDgFNGNw=&h=768&w=1024&sz=191&hl=en&start =1&zoom=1&tbnid=LwL-w9CeixOLTM:&tbnh=113&tbnw=150&prev=/images%3Fq %3Dfirst%2Bphotograph%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Dactive%26sa%3DN %26rls%3Dcom.microsoft:en-us%26biw%3D1003%26bih%3D530%26tbs %3Disch:1&um=1&itbs=1 http://www.google.com/imgres? imgurl=http://www.knaw.nl/ecpa/sepia/exhibition/iapp/images_iapp/niepce.jpg&imgrefurl=ht tp://www.knaw.nl/ecpa/sepia/exhibition/iapp/Glossary/N_05.htm&usg=__NJZ1I- XnoO0AkxM5EZwLtqZzgKg=&h=280&w=216&sz=60&hl=en&start=0&zoom=1&tbnid=nFwQcB WfubghCM:&tbnh=129&tbnw=98&prev=/images%3Fq%3Djoseph%2Bnicephore%2Bniepce %26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Dactive%26sa%3DN%26rls%3Dcom.microsoft:en-us %26biw%3D1003%26bih%3D530%26tbs %3Disch:1&um=1&itbs=1&iact=rc&dur=31&ei=LcuHTJzkF4rKnAfgzIi1Dg&oei=LcuHTJzkF4rKnAf gzIi1Dg&esq=1&page=1&ndsp=17&ved=1t:429,r:1,s:0&tx=54&ty=68&safe=active First known photograph
  4. 4. Photographs contd. • Louis-Jacques-Mande Daguerre partnered with Joseph Nicephore Niepce in 1829. • Together, they developed the process of creating permanent photographs. • This process of capturing permanent images came to be known as ‘daguerreotype’ http://www.google.com/imgres? imgurl=http://imagecache6.allposters.com/LRG/13/1348/LSCS000Z.jpg&imgr efurl=http://www.saddoboxing.com/Boxing- Posters/i1345686.html&usg=__1TOnGdH2bBWAwAfibFeK8FP8R6A=&h=450& w=338&sz=35&hl=en&start=0&zoom=1&tbnid=LRfia4hY-x- 9OM:&tbnh=134&tbnw=96&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dlouis%2Bjacques %2Bmande%2Bdaguerre%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Dactive%26sa %3DN%26rls%3Dcom.microsoft:en-us%26biw%3D1020%26bih%3D530%26tbs %3Disch:1&um=1&itbs=1&iact=rc&dur=312&ei=hMyHTIHGCaS1nAfX7dAS&o ei=hMyHTIHGCaS1nAfX7dAS&esq=1&page=1&ndsp=19&ved=1t:429,r:1,s:0&t x=59&ty=79&safe=active
