ABSTRACT
The article offers information regarding the significance of camera before the emergence of photography. It reveals that camera before was known to be a big room wherein there was a very small aperture on one wall, a pinhole, which formed an image on the opposite wall of what lay outside. In the middle of the sixteenth century, the pinhole was substituted by a lens and the entire room were made with a lens on the roof which threw its image onto a table. It further notes that small cameras such as modern reflex cameras became popular in the eighteenth century. The invention of photography came forth in the nineteenth century.
