1. Obscura Camera

According to history, the camera was first discovered around 1000 AD by a legendary Muslim scientist named Al-Haitam or Alhazen. At that time, the camera was called the camera obscura which means dark room.

3. Dry Plates Camera

Dry plate cameras began to be used by people in 1857. This one camera is the work of Desire van Monckoven. Fourteen years later, this dry plate camera was modified by Richard Leach Maddox who succeeded in creating a wet plate camera that was of better quality and speed in terms of shooting.

4. Kodak Cameras and Film Camera

Those of you who were born in the 80s or 90s must have known or seen cameras that use roll film inside which can then be printed into a photo, right? Well, the Kodak camera is the name.

5. Compact Camera and Canon

The history of the camera is continued with the presence of a compact camera that was researched by Oskar Barnack at Leitz. Barnack used 35mm film to create a camera that can produce high-quality enlarged images.

 8. Digital Camera

Digital cameras and Ultra-Wide cameras differ from their predecessor analog cameras mainly because they do not use roll film, but are capable of capturing and storing photos or videos on a digital memory card or external storage very well with a sharper resolution.

Thus about, the long history of cameras

And now I’ll tell you a little bit about the Ultra-Wide camera, Many smartphones now provide not only dual cameras but also wide viewing angle capability. or commonly known as Wide Angle. There is even a wider one called Ultra Wide Angle.

 Ultra Wide Angle capability is usually found in premium or high-end smartphones, while in the middle or affordable class, the Wide Angle feature is available. Even though the definition is clear, maybe there are still many smartphone users who rarely use this feature.

 Even though the Wide Angle or Ultra Wide Angle feature on a smartphone camera also has many advantages, although, in terms of the sharpness of the original photos, many people are still below the quality of photos using the main lens mode.

 For users who are curious and want to try to be confused about when is the right time to use the Wide Angle or Ultra Wide Angle feature on a smartphone camera? Here are a few tips as a guide



Usually, to take a group photo or a photo on a stage that contains many people, you will change the position of the smartphone from vertical to horizontal, until you get a photo in Landscape mode.

 So more people can fit into the photo frame or on the smartphone screen. How is the environment in front of the stage very narrow or do you have to compete with other people who will also take the photo?

 This condition is often my own. Here the feature, Wide Angle or Ultra Wide Angle is very helpful. It is enough to change the camera so that the camera view can be much wider or wider. This feature is also available on the front cameras of many smartphones to provide Wefie capabilities.

So in conclusion we can take photos and videos with better quality and quiet videos without shock, and we have to make the most of it in order to reap its benefits

So much from me, I apologize if something is not comfortable, thank you very much
