When was the first camera available for people?
The use of a lens in the opening of a wall or closed window shutter of a darkened room to project images used as a drawing aid has been traced back to circa 1550. Since the late 17th century portable camera obscura devices in tents and boxes were used as a drawing aid.

The name "Camera" derives from the words "Camera Obscura," which means "dark chamber." The principle of the pinhole was understood as far back as Aristotle's day, but the first good description of a pinhole camera obscura dates to sometime early in the 11th century when the Arab scholar Hassan Ibn H…assan, otherwise known as Alhazen, described the effect of a projected image through a pinhole into a darkened room as a means of safely observing solar eclipses. The "chamber" eventually evolved into a portable box for use as an artist's sketching aid. A lens was attached to replace the pinhole for the first time in 1550. The first successful use of the camera for photographic purposes was in 1816, when a Frenchmen named Nicephore Niepce made negative images on sensitized paper, though he was not able to fix them to prevent further action of light. He had succeeded in making permanent fixed imaged in the camera by 1826, but the resulting image was more like a lithographic plate than a modern photograph. William Henry Fox-Talbot was successful in making paper negatives in the camera in August 1835. Louis Daguerre was successful in producing his Daguerreotypes in May of 1835, though he was unable to fix them permanently until 1837. So as you can see, the camera has evolved in both purpose and form over many centuries. (MORE)
The first machine patented in the United States that showed animated pictures or movies was a device called the "wheel of life" or "zoopraxiscope". Patented in 1867 by William Lincoln, moving drawings or photographs were watched through a slit in the zoopraxiscope. However, this was a far cry from m…otion pictures as we know them today. Modern motion picture making began with the invention of the motion picture camera. The Frenchman Louis Lumiere is often credited as inventing the first motion picture camera in 1895. But in truth, several others had made similar inventions around the same time as Lumiere. What Lumiere invented was a portable motion-picture camera, film processing unit and projector called the Cinematographe, three functions covered in one invention. The Cinematographe made motion pictures very popular, and it could be better be said that Lumiere's invention began the motion picture era. In 1895, Lumiere and his brother were the first to present projected, moving, photographic, pictures to a paying audience of more that one person. The Lumiere brothers were not the first to project film. In 1891, the Edison company successfully demonstrated the Kinetoscope, which enabled one person at a time to view moving pictures. Later in 1896, Edison showed his improved Vitascope projector and it was the first commercially, successful, projector in the U.S.. - Eman (MORE)

The first digital camera to be widely marketed to consumers was the Apple QuickTake 100. It held 8 images at resolution 640 x 480, was fixed-focus, connected only to a Mac (and it didn't have media cards--you had to connect the camera to a computer to get the pictures off), and cost $750. The reacti…on was very simple: "You want $750 for THAT? No freakin' way!" On the professional side, we had Better Light backs for view cameras. They cost $35,000 and had to be tethered to a computer in use. They were also "scanning" backs. Imagine taking a small flatbed scanner, that has to make three scans--one each for red, green and blue parts of the image--and putting it on your bellows camera in place of a film holder. Better Light is still in business and still makes these backs, but they're not as expensive now and the new ones scan all three channels in one pass. (MORE)
