A Glimpse at the Early Days of Photography

In the early days of photography during the 19th century, new techniques and methods of developing pictures were introduced and adopted. So much so that photography evolved from being a scientific method to becoming a visual format for artistic expressions and visual entertainment.
In 1895, the Lumiere brothers, Auguste and Louis invented and introduced a projector called Cinématographe. The device showed simple pictures moving at a rate of 16 frames per second, which kept audiences mesmerised.

Near the end of the 19th century, the Lumiere brothers and other inventors including Thomas Edison, worked on different equipment. Their goal was to develop a cinematographic tool that enabled film producers to present in theatres with big screens, moving pictures with storylines. The successful innovations thereafter led to the “silent movies” era that prevailed from 1894 to 1924.

The Advent of Digital Technology

Fast forward to today’s digital era, the use of digital technology in photography likewise influenced further developments in the cinematic world. Today, almost all cinema cameras are now using the same analog-to-digital converter used in digital photography.
Statistically, records show that since 2016 more than 90 percent of major movies released during the year were filmed on digital video cameras. The figures rose to 92 percent in 2017, as more films were shot with the use of high definition video cameras. The following year, only 24 films released for public viewing were shot with 35mm film rolls.
The evolution of photography paved the way for the evolution of films from simple and silent moving pictures into becoming high definition videos that can be requested on demand from providers of IPTV services.
