A digital camera is a device that takes still pictures and records them to digital media for later access. It can store media within the same device. Previously, digital cameras used 3~HF” floppy diskettes as the storage media. Later, they started using internal flash memory. Now, there are hybrid models in the market which support a memory card slot to increase the flexibility in the camera’s storage capacity.
The digital cameras were invented in 1975 by Steven Sasson, an engineer at Eastman Kodak. One of the advantages of using digital cameras is that making photos is both inexpensive and fast.
