History Of Digital Photography

A brief history of Digital Photography from tear 1919 to 1998

1919 The Western Union telegraph company puts into operation the telegraph machines.

Bartlane type XII, which allowed transmitting photographs on the various levels of gray.
1922 produced the first transoceanic image transmissions through the Atlantic submarine cable between London and New York.

1966 Bell Labs developed the technology of magnetic bubble memory, which would be developed on the CCD sensors in 1969.

1970 appears the first television camera CCD solid-state sensors in the field of digital photography.

1975 Birth of the era of video-recording enthusiasts. “SONY” presents the first camera “BETAMAX”.

1976 El Palomar observatory first images obtained with CCD sensors in its 5-meter telescope, which could only produce images of 256×256 pixels.

1981 SONY reappears on the scene. Teaches MAVICA (magnetic video camera), camera prototype instead of conventional film uses a magnetic disk to store images. This image can be seen on a television screen and the magnetic disk can be reused an infinite number of times. This news makes entering the sector of traditional photography into a serious crisis, even though they must spend 6 years before the market a camera of this type, CANON. Photography without film moves from speculation to become a reality, to the point that some media doomsayers proclaim the death of digital photography. Sony Corporation has been the company that has embodied the idea of a fully electronic camera system. For its implementation were needed 14 years.

1987 This year is chosen by Kodak to announce his camera magnet.
KODAK 1990 returns to make another round solution: The PHOTO-CD, which records and plays up to 100 pictures on a CD.

1996 digital photography began its expansion with the introduction of new models of compact cameras and even some reflex. In many traditional viewer begins to be replaced by liquid crystal displays.

1997 Little by little, the barriers are falling. The trend is clear and the key word is “integration.” The future is multimedia devices that combine the advantages of video, photography and sound. Cyber digital camera.

1998 appear the first commercial models of cameras with CMOS sensor. Consume less power than CCD sensor models and grouped all the electronics of scanning in a single chip, but for now introduce too much noise in the image to produce results similar to those of its competitor.
