National Camera Day is an annual celebration and is held on June 29th of each year. Memories are often captured in the present decade as cameras have made it a convention. It’s quite hard to imagine how we would have kept all the invaluable treasures in the form of photos when we hadn’t been introduced to the camera. Thus, a camera is a quintessential tool in the everyday life of many. They are playing an essential and irreplaceable role in the lives of humans irrespective of place and time. Over the years, there is a substantial development in the field of photography and cameras have taken it to the next higher level with so much technological progress. National Camera Day celebrates cams, photos, and even those people who made camera handier.

History of National Camera Day
The National Camera Day’s history, origin, and its first celebration are not mentioned anywhere. The author or the founder of this Day is also anonymous. However, we could assume that it might be someone who loves camera and photography who would have come up with this idea of celebration. A camera is an optical instrument used for recording or capturing images. The recordings may be stored locally, and they shall be transmitted to another location. A camera can be used to capture individual still photographs and sequences of images composing as videos or movies. Joseph Niépce is the most important pioneer in the field of photography. He is one of the most noted as one of the inventors of photography. He was the developer of the heliograph, a technique used to create the world’s first known photograph in the year 1825.
George Eastman was “The Father of Photography,” who had brought the camera to the masses. He had made cameras an easy-to-use tool although he didn’t invent the cameras. Louis Jacques Daguerre in 1839 had taken the first fixed image that didn’t fade, and he also recognized to be one of the Fathers of Photography. With so many developments, the cameras have evolved into a more advanced tool over the years. They were available in sizes, for different purposes, and in various types. However, the original camera was large, heavy, and is not easy to be carried away. Before the invention of cameras, people were highly dependent on paintings when it comes to saving memories. But not all of them can draw pictures and thus with the design of cameras, capturing images seems to be very simple. A camera is a simple tool, inexpensive, and provides a faster solution.
