I hate this. Let's employ some logic here, it's obviously not the first camera.
@Hakainthecandycane, they could've used well positioned mirrors
@Hakainthecandycane, nope they where building the camera them they look over after the flash goes off of the camera that took the picture and they said "wait...what?"
@Hakainthecandycane, orrrr this was at a time when there were more newer cameras and they were taking a photo of the first camers
@Hakainthecandycane, you are my favorite person in the universe
@Hakainthecandycane, but the Internet said it was..
@seedy, If it is true that that is the first camera, then that's what I thinking.
@BearDaniels, I know you said words, but I'm not sure you know how they work.
@Hakainthecandycane, Let's use some more logic. Before pictures they has painting. They were extremely good realistic painters. Maybe this is a painting of the first camera?
@seedy, you sonofabitch... That actually kinda makes sense.
@Hakainthecandycane, or just have had a supergood artist draw it.
@Hakainthecandycane, we had a discussion about this in my history class, they used mirrors... The first picture ever was a selfie.
@Sasuke is gay, if it was painting, they would have used color. There was no reason for them to use B&W. It was probably mirrors.
@Hakainthecandycane, obviously they used a time machine to go back and take the picture DUH!
@Hakainthecandycane, actually, the first camera was so blurry you could hardly make out anything, most likely a painting
@Hakainthecandycane, The first camera truly recorded was around the 1600s using manual shutters and light distribution. This looks like mid-early 1800s. Lol.
@Hakainthecandycane, or there were mirrors.
@Fedora the Explorer, Orrr you can use mirrors to redirect the light.
and where are they all looking?
Second picture was taken by world's second camera. But obviously it's a joke...that wasn't the first camera if anyone was wondering...I hope not.
i wonder when people will realize that when it says "ONE OF THE" first. it means it may not be the literal first
Time travelers obviously took the pic.
No seriously.. Who took that picture?
@JenniBoo, just because it's the first camera does not mean the picture was taken when it was still the only camera. This picture was probably taken once more cameras were around.
@JenniBoo, it's a daguerreotype
Hey guys did you know that cameras have actually been around in the Arab world for centuries (not as modern obviously, only able to burn into paper) but everybody seems to ignore that and act like Europeans made the first camera.
Could be a painting
@Bismo Funyuns, THANK YOU
Plot Twist: it's actually a screenshot from a video.
Y'all are idiots. Just because it's the first camera, doesn't mean it's the first picture. They obviously took it with another camera.
They painted it
It's actually a mirror which means it was also the world's first and best selfie
Or it's three mirrors angled at 90 degrees
They used mirrors!
They took it with 2 mirrors. Duh
Angled mirrors, think bout it. The camera aims at one mirror which is angled at another mirror looking at the camera so they were able to take a picture of the camera with the same camera. Science and angles people
Mirrors placed in a way to reflect the camera?
You guys do get that this isn't the first camera, it's just one using a big lens. I know the trend is that the older the gadget the bigger it is but no guys, it's not the first camera.
It was the Doctor..
Y'all some fvcktards. I'm not trying to be rude but the inventor(s) would make another one immediately after that one. Or take a selife in the mirror. Also this is a repost and i remember someone saying it was a camera to take a full picture of a train. But that was a while ago and he could have been lying. So yeah. Just dropped some knowledge on yo ass
When cameras where first made they would take an image over a long period of time, very early ones were hours. They were later made to be more like the ones we imagine today. Maybe this is the first camera that took images appearing instant.
Guys the first picture was a " selfy" it was used by lining up 2 very big mirrors please guys do some research
They used mirrors to take this picture. Like a camera selfie.
Maybe it's mirrors?
They took the picture, they are looking at the mirrors that they placed, the first picture ever taken was a selfie
They used mirrors, duh
It's a painting you fools.

Maybe it's just a picture of a really good painting of it.
Uhh a good artist? O.o duh
It's a painting duh
Nobody said this picture was taken at the exact moment that they finished construction of the first camera. This could work very well be the thousand camera taking the picture of the first camera
Maybe it's a super awesome painting
@Hakainthecandycane, They painted it
Or, Or, Or! They made the second camera and took a picture of the first one made.
Duh.... It's the worlds second camera from the future
This picture isn't wrong, it's the caption, this was indeed the first camera made, but they made a second camera to show off what they made. Smh Internet..
It's just a really good drawing god.
The second camera?
Or it's a drawing
