Watch How Cameras Have Evolved Over Time Through 11 Different Portraits (VIDEO)

This fun and informative video below from COOPH photographer Leo Rosas documents the dramatic evolution of camera technology through the decades via 11 different portraits.

Each camera that's mentioned in the clip also includes a sample portrait captured with that particular model, presenting a photographic trip through the ages. The journey begins with a simple pinhole camera and then moves on to Daguerrotype, Calotype, Ambrotype, a 35mm Leica, Polaroid (instant camera), Lomography, disposable cameras, SLR, DSLR and finally ending with today’s most sophisticated smartphones. (The music's even tailored in this video to fit the era of each camera.)

This is a fascinating trip through time and its amazing to see how far we have come and ponder what the future will hold.
