Simple cameras called “box cameras” typically take the form of cardboard or plastic boxes with lenses on one end and film on the other. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, they were widely sold.
With little (if any) possibility of adjusting the aperture or shutter speeds, the lenses are frequently single element designs with meniscus fixed focus lenses, or in better quality box cameras, a doublet lens.
These cameras perform best in brilliantly lit daytime scenes with the subject within the hyperfocal distance for the lens and of subjects that move little throughout the exposure due to the inability to alter focus, the small lens aperture, and the poor sensitivity of the sensitive materials available.
The global box cameras market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
The first box camera to be widely embraced by the public was the Kodak camera. Its design later served as a model for box cameras made by numerous other manufacturers.
The cameras were lightweight and portable due to the use of flexible roll film and could be used without the need for tripods or the associated challenges of using glass photographic plates, which were typical of professional cameras.
Photographers had to make their own arrangements for the development and printing of their images prior to the invention of the Kodak. The original Kodak came with film already loaded, and the purchaser returned the camera to Kodak so that it could be processed and reloaded with film for them.
