How a Camera Works

How a Camera works and what is the relation between the Camera and the human eye?

The human eye works much like a camera obscura which was mentioned in my previous post The Beginnings Of The Camera.

For more scientific details, please refer to this article.

The below diagram is showing how a camera works from inside and the flow of light to the camera to reflect the pictures.


The below diagram is showing on the left the position of a camera before the shot and on the right is the position when you are taking the shot.

The difference is the position of the mirror inside the camera which reflects light and objects to be able to take the shot.


Will talk in details later about each of the names in the diagrams.
