Around 1689- 1743 because that is abut around the time he was living
recently A2 Movie cameras were invented almost as soon as photographic techniques were invented, at the end of the 19th century. These used chemical film. Video cameras were invented along with television in the 1920's. Videcon, vacuum tube type video cameras, were replaced with CCD's around the 1980's.
For cameras, about 1902. Production of the patent from that year did not take place until about 1932 and was used in 35mm movie cameras as the first true zoom (meaning the focal plane did not shift appreciably when the lens was zoomed). The concept was first invented for telescopes around 1834, but it was a varifocal lens, in that it did not maintain focus when zoomed).
Camcorders were invented by William J. Smith in 1956. He invented the Camcorder for filming historical moments. in a tragic event Willy died, but the good news is that they could film him dying. Video cameras have been a constant use sinse then to know. Why? YOUTUBE, you singing when you were little, Movies, and MORE. So next time you ask why video cameras were invented go to a movie.
