Photography 101 for ambitious amateurs

History of the single-lens reflex camera
The history of the single-lens response camera (SLR) begins with the use of a unconditioned reflex mirror in a camera obscura described in 1676, but it took a long time for the design to come after for photographic cameras: the archetypical patent was acknowledged in 1861, and the first cameras were produced in 1884 but while elegantly simple in concept, they were actual daedal in practice.
