       The development of digital camera speaks for the above.

       The charm of technology is beyond your imagination. It makes what impossible years ago possible now.
       The development of digital camera speaks for the above.

        Ten years ago, you were full of envy when you saw someone show up his/her digital camera. For the
       sky-high price scared you away. With the rapid development of technology, digital camera has stepped into
       common family. Your dream has come true! It is really cool to have such a smart sidekick-a
       good-performance digital camera will be no doubt a best fellow to accompany you to wherever you go.
       With such a brilliant digital camera, you have no chance to miss any dazzling scene or unforgettable
       moments.

        However, the powerful digital camera you are enjoying also has a long story of growing up as every one of
       you.

        The history of the camera is well documented and can be traced back over one hundred years its digital
       cousin has had less focus if you will excuse the pun. The history of the digital camera began with a man
       called Eugene F. Lally who worked in jet propulsion and the development of artificial gravitational
       systems. During his spare time, however, Lally spent a great deal of time studying how to use mosaic photo
       sensors to record images digitally. The use of this technology was not initially intended for the public
       sphere but for astronauts to photograph the planets and hence find their position in space.

        At this point however the technology was not yet there to realize these concepts. This work went onto the
       backburner until 1975 when Steven Sasson an engineer working for Eastman Kodak managed to put
       together some old Motorola components with existing Kodak camera parts and Fairchild CCD sensors. A
       camera with the size of a toaster and almost four kilograms weight came out. This camera recorded black
       and white images to a cassette tape. And the pixel was only 0.01 mega, that is 10,000 pixels. Also, this
       camera took 23 seconds to capture its first image in December of 1975. After all, this prototype camera was
       not intended for consumer production but just a technical exercise.
        In 1981, the handled electronic camera showed up. And it was not until 1986 that analog electronic
       cameras appeared and reached the market. While, the first analog camera stepped into consumer market
       should be the Canon RC-250 Xapshot in 1988. Meanwhile, Nikon produced a notable analog
       camera-QV-1000C which is designed as a press camera and not offered for sale to general users for this
       camera was sold only a few hundred units. The camera closely looked like a modern digital single-lens
       reflex camera and images would be stored on video floppy disks.
        It is totally right to say that the eighties saw the true beginning of the digital camera age. Fuji DS-1P of
       1988 was considered to be the first true digital camera which recorded images as a computerized file. This
       digital camera recorded to a 16 MB internal memory card that used a battery to keep the data in memory.
        However, these early cameras did not go on sale to the mass public. The pioneer was the Dycam Model 1
       which was released in 1990. This digital camera adopted a CCD image sensor and stored the pictures in a
       digital format. What was outstanding was that this digital camera could be connected directly into a PC, so
       it is convenient for people to uploads images with ease.

        At that time, these digital cameras were unaffordable however. It was not until in 1994 when Apple

released the Quick Take 100 that a digital camera was available to consumers for under the thousand dollar
mark. And with the widespread use of media cards, digital technology truly took off. Since then the digital
camera has become more portable and more affordable.

 Nowadays, both people in developed and developing counties can enjoy the cool experience digital camera
bring them. At the same time, people in undeveloped areas can witness various digital cameras on the local
market.

 Thanks to digital camera, people are able to record imagery and take snapshots of the unforgettable
moments in life in a convenient and usable way. More luckily, chinazrh one of the best electronics
wholesalers in china provides your digital cameras with high quality at wholesale price and you are sure to
