For the acquisition timeline we had to start from as early as possible and note down the most important developments in photography, with some including pictures.
1031-1095: chinese scientists experimented with camera obscura, geometrical and quantative attributes were applied.
1839- Photography invented by henry fox talbert and louis dagurrePhotographic timeline
1843- Anna Atkins produced the first book to included photograms. The images were made without a camera , they were placed onto a surface of light sensitive paper and expose it to the light.
1844- Friedrich von martens built a cmaera containing a swivelling lens that can take panorama of 150 degrees. 1850’s – From this decade onwards most phtograpghs were made for a commerical basis.
1858- Felix nadar became first person to take aerial shots.
1860’s- The dagurreotype was being used seen as ‘polaroid’ of its day. Image on a polished silver surface , under protective glass. Brightly lit sheet of paper held so it reflects the mirror like material surface. Image will appear first negative, dark – to light areas then reverse. Instead of normal positive

1934- Henry fox talbot creates permnament nagative images.
1948 – Poloroid camera invented
¬1963- Poloroid develops first colour film. And Kodak relases its instamatic camera.
1982- Sony introduces its still video camera.
1991- Kodak reveals its first SLR camera
1992- Kodak introduces photo CD
2000- camera phone introduced in Japan
2003- Kodak ceases production of film camera
Reflection- This task took quite a while to research properly as the developments of photography goes back so many years. Trying to document it on the timeline accurately proved quite difficult when making this timeline. However i found it interesting when researching as i looked at equipment and facts i didnt know about photography.
