How Cameras Have Changed the World


Cameras have become popular over the years. In the past decade, we have observed people alternating from buying regular cameras. Instead, the majority of the population is content with the lenses they have on their smartphones. You can find various types of cameras in unique designs and functions.


A common phrase you are likely to hear in 2019 is “Netflix and Chill.” However, for us to enjoy the motion pictures we watch and share with friends and family, different cameras and lenses are utilized in the filming process. The shots are taken from and compiled for editing and processing of the final product. Another form of entertainment is making vines and memes. Without the camera, these things will never have come to exist. Currently, people do not care for live theatrical performances. Instead, some will open YouTube or any streaming platform and catch a film of their liking. All these things we can watch from our devices is because of the existence of cameras.


The invention of the camera has helped a lot of people. For example, those who want to earn a living from photography or videography. Cameras have enabled numerous jobs to exist in the media and entertainment sector. People like photographers, movie actors/actresses, videographers, and models are some of the few benefiting from the use of cameras one way or another.

Camera surveillance is a must-have security feature in this era. Cameras can easily help to identify suspects during a crime scene. Also, in case an individual gets involved in an accident, they are going to have an easier time gathering evidence at the scene. Some court cases have been won because of evidence provided using smartphone evidence collected on smartphones. To improve your safety when driving, some cars have rear cameras included to help them navigate safely.


Communication is not the same as it used to be before cameras were included on phones. Now, people can easily communicate using video calls, and students can attend online classes with the help of webcams. Also, people from different locations can host meetings and conduct businesses using conference video calling.

If you think about it, the world would have been less fun if we never invented the camera. You wouldn’t have the chance to view the millions of funny memes or watch educative tutorials online.
