The Camera Obscura kit shows you how photography began. Any modern camera is still a camera obscura. The principle of “Pinhole camera” has been around since “the ancient Greeks,” and has been known for at least 2300 years. With the invention of polished glass lenses 400 years ago, the Camera Obscura became a practical tool for painters who wished to produce accurate pictures. Later, resourceful scientists finally made the “Cameras”. With this experimental kit you can build your own camera obscura. Experimenting with a glass lens, you can learn the old tricks of the inventors and understand how cameras work. Made in Germany.
