A Short History of the Photographic Camera [Infographic] May 09 2015

This amazing infographic, A Short History of Photographic Camera, is a poster from Retrofuturismo-Kitsch. This is a lovely visual progression of the camera from the first ancient Camera Obscura to the Sony Mavica in 1981. The design is a compilation of the most popular photographic cameras during their respective periods, so some models included are naturally less well-known examples then other entries.
