AstroMedia Camera Obscura
All our modern cameras have one common ancestor - The Camera Obscura: the light of the outside world falls through a pinhole onto the opposite wall of a room and produces an upside-down picture. In the 16th century the camera obscura was greatly improved by an objective lens, which produced much brighter pictures.
. Then in 1836 Nicéphore Nièpce projected the picture on a light-sensitive plate and the photographic camera was born.
Our beautiful, sturdy Camera Obscura is equipped with a powerful lens (62mm diameter, 275mm focal length) and a mirror for an upright picture, like the one Canaletto used. The picture is projected onto a 16x16cm screen with transparent paper on which it can be viewed or copied by pencil.
Pre-punched kit with black and gold printing, complete with lens, mirror, clear screen and transparent paper.
