Once a simple wooden box with a primitive lens and cap for controlling light, the camera has undergone enormous change since its invention nearly two hundred years ago.

Advancements such as flexible film stocks, built-in light meters, motor drives, and microchips transformed the way the camera captures and preserves a moment in time. This exhibition features a wide selection of historic cameras, including the first mass-market digital camera, which helped usher in a new era for photography.
