Directly inspired from the Camera Obscura described by Roger Bacon in 1267, these cameras are distributed in
two main categories :
bullet Daguerrian Cameras
bullet Expanding Cameras

These cameras evolved according to the improvement of the photographic process (Daguerreotype, Ambrotype, Collodion, etc...) but the invention of the expanding camera was really a huge one which makes of these cameras, the precursors of the Foldings.
