June 29th Camera Day

Most people think George Eastman invented the camera, he did not. True, he invented a lot of things to go with the camera but not the camera itself. The idea of the camera has been around for a very, very long time but it is generally accepted that Joseph Nicephore Niepce, a Frenchman, invented the first working camera as we know it today back in 1816. Matthew Brady popularized the camera with his work during the American Civil War and then, of course, George Eastman brought the camera to nearly every household in America.
