A camera is a device used to record images in photographic or video format. Cameras use a light-sensitive medium to record the light that enters a closed box via a converging lens. They also have a shutter mechanism to control exposure time. Modern cameras evolved from the "camera obscura" (Latin for "dark chamber"), which was developed in the fifth century B.C. by Chinese philosopher Mo Ti.
