the history of the camera phone
More than half of the phones in the world today are camera phones.
Although there has been a landline-based video phone for decades, the first phone that can transmit, receive and display digital images is a prototype device called smart, it was designed by American inventor Daniel A in 1993. Henderson.
The smartphone is essentially a hand-held phone with a large, high-resolution monochrome screen that displays images and video files transmitted through a computer connected to a wireless transmitter.
Many of the technologies and data transfer protocols that Henderson pioneered are still in use today in our modern camera phones.
Other early experiments on wireless image sharing combined with mobile phones included Apple\'s Videophone/PDA in 1995, as well as several digital camera/phone combination prototypes presented by Kodak and Olympus after the 90 s.
However, none of these devices can be connected wirelessly to the Internet, which proves to be an important development as it allows to share instant media with anyone, regardless of their location.
Soon after, however, Philippe Kahn of the light surf enterprise in the United States invented a mobile picture sharing structure, and the first photographer to take advantage of this was sharp J-
SH04 was developed in the late 90 s and released a commercial version in Japan in 2001.
Needless to say, camera phones have achieved great success. By 2006, more than half of all mobile phones in circulation were camera phones, this brings an end to two of the world\'s leading camera manufacturers Minolta and Konica.
By the beginning of 2009, more than 2 billion photographic mobile phones were circulating around the world.
The footage taken by citizen journalists on the photographer even began to appear in the main television news bulletin.
The first major international breaking news to use photographer footage in this way was the 2005 Boxing Day tsunami.
This is expected to become more common over time, and photographers become more common.
