Usually the first digital camera is considered a prototype developed by Eastman Kodak engineer Steven Cezanne in 1975. He pieced together some Motorola parts with Kodak film camera lenses and some newly invented Fairchild CCD electronic sensors.
But in this case, humans will have to carry a large device weighing about 7 pounds and a cassette player.
Moreover, the first digital camera had to be powered by 16 batteries to work. Today, in order to capture beautiful moments with digital clarity, we only need to press a button on a mobile phone or pick up a small multifunctional camera.
