• What is a FILM Camera?? No Pictures??

When was the last time you took a picture of something? Maybe it was today, or probably at least once in the last week.

What did you use to take that picture? A smartphone or a tablet? Did you know that before there were smartphones, before there were even digital cameras, there were film cameras!

The biggest difference is that you couldn’t see the picture you took right away. You had to bring your camera to the store and wait while they print the photo for you. Can you imagine that??

So what did these old cameras look like, and how did they work? Check out other kids reacting to an old camera:
