Cameras are everywhere. There are video cameras. There are digital cameras. There are even underwater cameras. The camera was invented in 1826. It was heavy and big. It was messy. Chemicals were needed to take pictures. Jugs of water were also needed.
George Eastman wanted a camera that was easier to use. He wanted a camera that was easy to carry. George Eastman's family did not have a lot of money. He had to stop going to school when he was 14. He had to work. He needed to earn money for his family. George worked at a bank during the day. At night, he experimented in his mother's kitchen. In the 1880s, he invented an easier-to-use camera.
