Its is a view from outside Nicéphore Niépce's studio taken in 1827. The reason why it's so hard to make out all of the shapes properly is because the exposition time for this photo was about 8 hours. Within 8 hours, the earth rotates considerably therefore changing the sunlight's direction.

common misconception about the picture above (oc, not thashmash s comment) it is in fact not the worlds first camera, It is actually the world's biggest camera and it weighed 1400 pounds and used a 4.5 × 8 glass-plate negative. The world's biggest camera was built by George R. Lawrence in the year 1900. This image was of a train in Paris (pictured below), and this picture got George "The Grand Prize of The World". George also was famous for taking picture while in a balloon, and has an awesome one of San Francisco. The Worlds First camera actually dates back to the Ancient Chinese, but all it did was take whatever the lens was pointing at, and projected it onto a viewing surface, so like a weird telescope/projector combo (it was called the camera obscura). The first (permanent) picture ever taken is not the one thrash posted above, which was taken in 1826 by Nicephore Niepce. It was out taken as a view looking outside his estate in France. The first picture ever taken was actually one in 1822, and was of Pope Pius VII, but was destroyed when Nice tried to duplicate it. Nice actually produced the "modern" camera because of his downfall, because before he invented it, people would point the lens at something, and then trace what was being projected so they could keep the image. However, Nice wasn't very good at this, so instead of learning how to do it better, he invented the camera, which dissolves bitumen in lavender oil, and coats a sheet of pewter with this light capturing mixture.Then Nice would place the sheet inside a camera obscura to capture the picture, and eight hours later he would remove it and wash it with lavender oil to remove the unexposed bitumen.

Also the medium wasn't well established. Film wasn't around and this is pre-daguerreotype, so it was like an experimental thing by a very smart man

if the first one is still being made then I dont really think another one being made during that time could be declared the second one.

1) Pictures have been taken before the first camera was created. That camera probably used the same method of picture taking as they did before hand: make a sealed box and poke a hole in one side. The light goes through the box and hits some light-reactive chemicals on the other side. Though this may have been the first 'camera' - the first thing capable of multiple uses and can move around without being dissassembled - the picture could have been taken by the older method.
2) The caption says "MAKING the world's first camera", not just a picture of the world's first camera. If they were still making it, it wouldn't be able to take pictures yet, so it couldn't be a selfie.
3) It's a picture on the ******* internet with no evidence of it's claims. It could be the 127th camera for all we know.

What else beside a camera can be used to capture a still image of real world objects? It's more or less the definition of a camera, ergo whatever made the first photo is a camera, because it was able to do so.

I guess I'm going with the definition of a camera which is that thingy where you press a button and it captures a light using lenses and glasses in the camera.

That would rule out the type of camera we see in the picture. These did not have shutters that would allow for trigger operation. They were operated by sliding a cover off and back on the cassete with the photosensitive material, back then glass panels coated with silver-based photosensitive compound.

maybe that's the first camera ever made and the picture has been taken by a second one (obviously created later), i actually can't belive people didn't get it already.
