The Camera Obscura

The Camera Obscura


The mother of all photo, film and video cameras. The principle: light from the outside world falls through a small hole onto the opposite wall of a room and creates an upside-down image. This is projected by a mirror onto a ground-glass screen where it can be viewed and copied. The enclosed lens makes the image particularly bright and sharp.
