                             The Early History of Ethnographic Film:
       A chronology of the development of ethnographic film within a documentary film tradition
       (Transcribed from Tim Asch’s Fall1989 Anth 575 syllabus and links added by Jennifer Cool)

        making a clay pot at the Exposition Ethnographique de L’Afrique Occidentale in Paris.
1898- 1899
      Alfred Cord Haddon films in the Torres Straits, Australia, with a Lumière camera. Even in
      these early years Haddon wrote that film should become an indispensable tool for
      ethnographic research.

1998    Small, lightweight video recorders are now available to record more information with better
        quality and higher resolution than could 16mm in the 1980s. These TV images are now shown
        on home video digital plasma screens as large as 4”x6” (if you want they can be 30”x40”)
        with 5,000 lines per inch resolution (instead of today’s 525 lines per inch). The screens are 1”
        thick, plasma and the information comes to the screen digitally by two wires attached to one
        corner of the screen, at which point the information immediately spreads out across the
        entire plasma (or equivalent) without being projected.
1999    Many books are now published with a 3” computer disc placed in a little envelope on the
        inside front cover, that can digitally transmit 3 hours of visual information in the form of stills
        or moving images, music, and text.
