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.

Sorry, there's technically 4 of us on this account, and we leave a calling card for each of our comments, except everyone else seems to have a life, so i've been doing a majority of the comments... white shadow has done one or two though also, batman comes from my main account (which has kinda become my secondary)

i always thought that looked like a spaceship in the middle of a large hole on the ground

what is it

this is..actually... really cool
User avatar #44 to #9 - selderz (04/03/2014) [-]
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

took a picture of another dimension. we need to fin that camera

It looks like a spaceship. Is there a photoexplain?
#21 to #17 - monstar (04/03/2014) [-]
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.
User avatar #19 to #17 - ganjalff (04/03/2014) [-]
i dont remember where but i read that it was a view out of a window, with houses on both sides and a triangle made by sun in the middle

theirs like 12 pictures that people claim are the first pictures ever
#12 - thatguyyoumightno (04/03/2014) [-]
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.

So you believe every caption on every picture you see on the internet.

the 2nd camera
User avatar #16 to #7 - spanishiqiustion (04/03/2014) [-]
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.

There's a big buzz about them now, but it'll settle before too long
#46 - bakagaijin (04/03/2014) [-]
maybe it was the first camera ever built but it was taken by the second camera ever built...
User avatar #51 to #46 - Einsty (04/03/2014) [-]
It is not the first camera.,_Joseph_Nic%C3%A9phore_Ni%C3%A9pce.jpg
Is the oldest photo to still exist.
#54 to #51 - urapooper (04/03/2014) [-]
ah but you see just because that is a photo does not mean it was taken with a camera. so that could be the first camera.
User avatar #57 to #54 - Einsty (04/03/2014) [-]
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.
#58 to #57 - urapooper (04/04/2014) [-]
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.
User avatar #64 to #58 - Einsty (04/04/2014) [-]
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.
User avatar #56 - thunderkrux (04/03/2014) [-]
That's not true. The world's first "cameras" are a handful of millenia old. They were small dark rooms with a pinpoint hole in the wall. Anyone or anything standing outside could be seen on the other wall but upside down and whoever was inside the room could just sketch out what was displayed on the other wall. Even if you don't want to consider those cameras, the first cameras had film couldn't even hold the images for very long. Then, Niepce was the very first person to take a picture with "film" that could hold an image, but the exposure required 8 hours so they weren't very good pictures. Niepce and his partner spent a lot of time developing a film that required a shorter exposure, but his partner was the one in the end who made the new film after Niepce died. But it was a complicated process to develop the film. So fast forward to modern cameras now we have digital **** .
#29 - heyfuckoff (04/03/2014) [-]
Well firstly it has been said that's the "Making" of the camera, so maybe it's just a highly skilled painter? Hmmm?
#23 - anon (04/03/2014) [-]
how about they used the worlds second camera to take a picture of the first ?
User avatar #22 - thebaseballexpert (04/03/2014) [-]
that is the first camera, not the first picture
#27 to #22 - ivelization (04/03/2014) [-]
uuummmm....i hope im an idiot and dint see the sarcasm in that comment..
User avatar #28 to #27 - thebaseballexpert (04/03/2014) [-]
there is no sarcasm. It's a picture taken of the first camera, using a camera built at a later date
#30 to #28 - thebeatlesfan (04/03/2014) [-]
But it says the "making of"
#32 to #30 - thebaseballexpert (04/03/2014) [-]
welp... forget everything i said then

Pretty sure it could be wrong.

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.
User avatar #10 to #8 - huffe (04/02/2014) [-]
it says "making of"
#63 to #10 - anon (04/04/2014) [-]
"My name is huffe and I believe every caption on every picture I ever see on the internet."
User avatar #14 to #10 - samuraikuroda (04/03/2014) [-]
If you look at it, it doesnt seem that their "making" it. Their just kinda standing
#65 - anon (08/19/2014) [-]
I cannot believe that there are so many morons here. Try actually using the internet for a change to gather information rather than speculate over some stupid claim written on an old photo. This is NOT the worlds first camera. If you really give a damn then try Google or Wikipedia.
Now MOVE ON morons.

Or, the person who put the caption on the picture was a dumbass.

am i the only one that hates the word "selfie"?
#34 - KingTroll (04/03/2014) [-]
"Making of the first camera" as in it wasn't finished... so if it wasn't finished how would it take the picture.
User avatar #48 to #34 - leonhardt (04/03/2014) [-]
Why do they include "The Making Of" videos in DVD bonus features if the Movie is already completed?
#59 to #48 - KingTroll (04/04/2014) [-]
I don't understand what you're trying to say. What I was saying, was that that's the making of the first camera. That camera isn't complete to take picture, and since it's the first, there were no other cameras to take the picture
User avatar #60 to #59 - leonhardt (04/04/2014) [-]
Or maybe the person who put the text on the picture is a retard and we're grossly overthinking this.
#61 to #60 - KingTroll (04/04/2014) [-]
That is also very likely haha
