The first cameraphone

Digital photography has changed everything. However, not only the photographic model. Just 15 years ago if you wanted to take a picture of something you had to bring a camera, and were limited to the number of catches according to reel you wore. Then when you were done, you had to get him to reveal to see if the picture was good or bad. And then, put a frame or teach to a handful of friends.

If you wanted to take a picture, you had a chance. Nothing to do several photos from various angles and in various configurations to see which one comes out better, no. This was photograph without a net. If you went wrong at first, you were staying without photo, and would not know until a few days. You found you a nun driving a 600 full of bananas and listening Mongo Santamaria? You would have no proof that happened (and believe me it is a true story).

Many of these limitations disappeared when digital cameras became popular. Although the first digital camera was manufactured in 1975 by Steven Sasson -a Kodak- engineer, technology was not popularized until the mid 2000. Now you could make hundreds of photographs without limitation retakes, see the photo at the time and even record a video. But the real change came when the phones began to carry camera.

The first camera phones, Samsung work

Before all llevásemos a camera on your phone, many amateur photographers always took up a compact camera. Today, thanks to smartphones, this gadget has disappeared along to MP3. This is what can thank Samsung, which in June 2000 launched the SCH-V200, the first mobile phone that had camera.

The resolution was 0,35MP and could store up to 20 images, so it really was hard to get a quality image with the camera, but would kick off a career thanks to which today carry in our pockets so outstanding cameras such as the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the Xperia terminals.

The megapixel race

When smartphones broke with force, mobile phone cameras had reached up to 12MP, such as the Samsung M8910 Pixon12, and had already built - in flash to the terminals. It was the time of megapixel race, when the need for marketing to convey the quality of a camera with a single number made everyone seek the sensor as large as possible.

But what finally changed forever the world of photography was the arrival of smartphones. The cameras of some devices no longer had much to envy compact cameras -the Nokia Lumia 1020 41MP was madness and performed excellent pictures in low light. Companies like HTC or LG even managed to integrate 3D cameras on some devices.

Social networks change everything

But what made ​​it different to smartphones was the possibility of the picture, edit it, and share it with the world within one or two minutes. There was a boom of applications that allow for even mobile photo editing Adobe Photoshop versions ended up throwing and Lightroom-, camera applications that allow total adjustment of parameters and options as the spherical camera photos Google.

And, of course, Instagram. Social networks have turned us all ready to photograph anything to share on networks amateur paparazzi. Always a good vintage filter, which is not noticed all too digital.
