1826 was the year of the very first snap shot or photograph which was in France. Jacques Daguerre improved the idea 12 years after the first photo. His camera was a box with a lens pocking out. Inside the box was a copper plate coated with silver.
George Eastman (an American) invented a small hand held camera. It had celluloid roll of film rather than a plate. After that in 1900 the Eastman Kodak Company made a box camera called a brownie. 1920-1940 better cameras have been made in Germany but they had expensive lenses.
Mostly people now use cameras from Japan.
