The digital photography REVOLUTION
In the beginning of photography,
It was a many months long process.
The view camera: big; heavy and fragile, one picture at a time.
Then the Kodak Brownie camera took 250 pictures, one at a time
And one processing 2 or 3 times a year. Enter the processing shop.
Then for the press there was a speed graphic camera,
it had film holders of cut sheet film, being panchromatic;
it was loaded into the camera film holders in total darkness.
Still the processing took hours and was done by the
photographer. In darkness: then later; under the red light safelight
Along comes the film cassette that was removeable
from the camera, 36 pictures, the 35 mm camera.
It allowed for enough pictures on a roll strip of the film,
to have a good picture(s) to create a photojournalistic
The Comprehensive single lens reflex still camera.
What was an hours long process at it's shortest
(color processing) and in the darkroom for monochrome
continious tone black & white photography.
ENTER THE DIGITAL CAMERA
A comprehensive mechanical photograph can now
be processed in a very short period of time.
The time varies from the specialization of the computer
and the accessories.
