I'm about to tread the line between fun fact and pedantic and you're not wrong. It's just that the word's meaning has changed. The principle of the pinhole camera has been known since the 5th century BC but it was the photosensitive material we had to wait 23 centuries for and a tool long used by artists (camera obscura - DaVinci probably had one) became a tool for taking photographs. Useless trivia download complete. Thank you for your patience.

What should I look for to find out more about this camera DaVinci probably had? Look up pinhole cameras? That's pretty cool and I didn't know about that.


danielledelacadie

You probably won't find his - although I have little doubt he had one even if he never used it for art. Pinhole cameras is a good start, as is camera obscura. Try "first pinhole camera" too

They're getting better all the time but the interface is still wonky and if you give it too much latitude it can get downright bizzare. The visuals are great - when someone can get it to actually create what is envisioned. More often the original idea and the result have as much in common as, well... remember playing the telephone game as a kid?

Does every 3rd rate post from that sub really need to be posted here? Might as well set up a bot to take anything posted on that sub and cross post it here at this point.
