Evolution of Camera and Photography – Designzzz Infographic


Information Graphics (commonly known as infographics) are a great way to inject knowledge into a web reader’s mind, this is because people don’t read text on computer screens. Graphics make the information intuitive and fun. That’s why we frequently publish the best relevant infographics from all over the web. But today the scenario is changed. Designzzz is proudly publishing its first infographic on our hot topic, Photography.

This is a seriously informative and fun GK infographic for everybody. Here you can learn the amazing tale of camera and photography. The story starts from 500 BC and reaches 2050. Get to know the very latest unbelievable technologies that have been invented and working right now. This is all pure knowledge, and as a famous cartoon character says “Knowledge is Power”.

    that’s a lot of font types… good efforts though!

    1. Tayyab says:


      Yeah… a lot of fonts. Waseem (the Designer of this infographic and our tutorial writer) thought such a long document needs more than one font, otherwise the results can be boring.

    Everything was normal and pleasantly fine until the last bit on the future of camera (2050) ruined it.

    Lets stay out of hyperboles and photos coming out of our mouths please.

    I’m all for being concise and avoiding excessive words, but the odd capitalization and missing linking words of sentences like “It captured first image Did Not Fade, and needed only 30 minutes of Light Exposure” make parts of this read like a spam email. Sorry, it just bothered me.

    Other than that, I thought this was quite interesting. I could have done with more in the post-1900 era, but I suppose it was about the evolution prior to the heyday of photography. Thanks for a good infographic.

      Thanks for liking the post.
      You should read my reply to @CEJ REJ (below your comment)
      and yes 1900 era could have been enhanced and we did have a lot of material, because this recent history is very much recorded and not that hard to find, but since the graphic already got very very lengthy and our designer started to curse me, we had shelf a few obvious steps from 20th century.
      and thanks for Photoshop Lightroom fan page moderators for featuring us.

    1. Tayyab says:

      Sorry Dear Sonja!

    Editing Suggestions
    -It captured (the) first image that did not fade
    -if you want to shoot at something (not your)

    1. Tayyab says:

      Hi @CEJ REJ

      Those days are gone when Editors (like me) ruled. Nowadays design matters the most. in 1837 we reduced the step to half the text it from the original (for the sake of design), the “the” was deliberately removed in doing so.
      2050 step is purposely left confusing and misguiding, it is an attempt to create pun. ;)
      But big thanks for studying it so closely and providing us your feedback, you are the kind of readers we adore :)

  12. Johan says:

    heavy info heavy design
    loved it saved it shared it

  13. Oberlehrer says:

    nice graphic… possibly you can add
    Oskar Barnack for 35 mm film and the Leica ;-)

    1. Tayyab says:

      You are quite right, we were stuck at 35mm for a while but eventually we decided to cut it in the shortening process since all the tech involved in capturing a 35mm shot was the same as the other cameras. That’s the only reason.
      And Leica has created some gems like the Visoflex series in 50s’ but do you think they deserved a place in the “evolution of camera”

    chatroulette style chat…

  15. Alex says:

    Very nice history. Thanks for sharing.
    I think you have a couple of the pictures wrong in the 1978-1991 section. I believe that the second picture of a Cannon is a film version, not a digital, and the third picture is a Nikon camera, not a the Kodak DSC-100.
    Thanks again.

    1. Tayyab says:

      Hello Alex…

      I was waiting for this comment from a very long time :D
      Kodak DSC-100 was built using Nikon F3 body. So all the cameras had Nikon written on them. Here’s wikipedia for more details: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kodak_DCS_100

      Canon picture is taken from canon.com so no problem there.

      But since you are first one to spot this, I declare that you have very good pair of eyes.
