As we have come back to time and time again, cameras have a high variety of usages in our culture. This post will cover how cameras have the ability to protect ourselves.
We live in a time where nearly everything is recorded and documented. As we speak, there are millions of security cameras keeping watch over someones property, as well as deterring possible criminals from acting on their motives.
Cell phone cameras that are available to record at a moments notice, and videotape all kinds of things, some of which can be used for their protection. People often will record encounters with police officers as a means of letting the cops know that they are being recorded, also to use as evidence for any wrongdoing on the officers part.
Our cameras even help keep us secure from the non-human species. After watching some footage from the night before, I saw a skunk and her babies crawl underneath my house where I smelled them the following morning. I called a pest control company who immediately handled the problem. Thanks to cameras, I was able to avoid what could have potentially been a major hindrance on my life. I’ll take this camera filled world over how it was many years prior.

Cameras in vehicles have changed the way we handle transportation and value the future of technology for automobiles, drones, space travel, and all the other ways that cameras can help finesse the transport and vehicle capabilities of our modern vehicular transporting systems.
In the mid-2000’s, some cars started to become equipped with rear view cameras. There were a couple of scary incidents at the time of parents not being able to see the peripherals around their vehicle, and horrific cases of babies, toddlers, and young children, as well as even some adults were struck by vehicles due to the driver not having the ability to see exactly what was behind them. Thanks to back up cameras now, there is usually a camera in the bumper of a vehicle, sometimes even multiple cameras, and they are connected to a screen in the vehicle that gives them the capability of seeing what is directly behind them so that they do not hit anything. This helps avoid minor accidents from running into trees, walls, curbs, other vehicles, and most importantly, from endangering any animals, in particular, our fellow human beings.
The state of cameras being installed in vehicles is expanding in nearly every market, and it has been a major part of some of our highest real of possibility markets, such as space travel. Right now, we are in the midst of a major technological progression in all of human history. We are advancing our space technologies like never before, and scientists, engineers, and space travel professionals alike are all working together into figuring out how build the best model of space equipment as possible, as well as testing them. Because of the cameras that we have installed into many of these technologies, we are capable of studying many facets of our progress and able to use more precise judgment in our decision making because we have the video evidence to help us with our choices.
Right now, our unit of people have been able to construct a rover, particularly special one. This rover has been name Curiosity, very cleverly. Right now, Curiosity is exploring the surface of Mars. Luckily, we have fitted Curiosity the rover with a couple of cameras that are able to send some magnificent pictures back to the world to broadcast to everyone what the surface of Mars looks like. Space is such a major topic, and the exploration of that is so essential for the survival and progression of mankind, it is so revolutionary that we are this point in history that we are able to get high definition pictures of the surface of Mars, something that was essentially unimaginable many years ago.
In this race between companies to create the highest level of camera technology, over the last few years, picture quality has certainly changed styles depending on what top level companies believe what is important to consumers. Now, instead of just capturing images of life’s moments, cameras are used much more in a way that is geared toward benefiting the consumers in an attempt to sell products and make more money. In that effort, we have seen some cool gizmos added to the array of useful products, and are certainly seeing into the future much more common about what kind of things are going to be integrated into our everyday lives.
Early on in my life, I can still remember a ton of people using the instant print cameras that would print up a small picture right after a picture was taken. Then, as the digital age moved along and a lot of people had computers or knew that they could print their pictures through chain stores like WalMart, Costco, Bel-Air, among others. Now, with the advent of picture taking phones, and especially ones that take pictures in 4k quality, the bar for camera technology is accelerating very quickly, and it is very interesting to see what the future holds for camera technology.

It became apparently clear that for the phone companies to get their phone in the hands of every American, they had to create the phone with the best features. There were very many varieties of cell phones in the early to mid 2000’s. The phone companies at the time were pushing their cell services, and the different varieties of phones that were exclusive with their brand. People were given limited options to choose cell phones based on the the plan that they needed, so many of different phone creators had their hand in the game. Most set themselves apart in the crowd by features like touchscreen features, texting features, music capabilities, among others. Once Apple stepped into the cell phone industry and released their Iphone, the phone market as a whole was forced to step their games up.

In the new age that we as a human race are currently involved in, imagery has a lot to do with the way the business world works. A company’s image is very important to the public eye, and if they are putting out noticeable, impressive imagery out there for the public to see, then there is a better chance of someone choosing them rather than a competitor who does not put out pictures. The human psyche is attracted to symbols, and imagery, and many companies have already learned how to manipulate human perception into thinking positive things about their company. It is the reason many companies spend so much money into creating the perfect logo, in hopes of creating an image that is recognizable, and makes a person think positive things about that company just by the way the logo looks. Brand recognition is very important in the public’s eye, but this is only one facet of the imagery game for companies.
While a logo is often the first image that may pop into a consumers head when they think of a company, what a consumer is looking for through media sources, such as the internet, printing, television, and elsewhere also can be a humongous indicator on a person’s opinion of a company. For example, when someone is looking to hire someone to do their wedding photography, a solid portfolio of pictures is essential for a interested client when choosing between companies. Other professions where pictures are very important to showcase would be house remodeling, painting, contractor work, and any other profession where aesthetics are incredibly important.

Over the last hundred years, there were definitely distinctly top tier cameras, but when comparing the pricing of some of these cameras compared to the lower tier, higher level cameras were exclusively available for high ranking public officials, and ultra wealthy private individuals. Then, once the digital camera age began, more and more often the top level cameras began to get into the hands of upper middle class, then to the middle class, and nowadays, if you can scrape up $20, you can find something that will take High Definition quality pictures that can be used over and over again.
During the early 2000’s until 2010, there was an incredibly sharp increase in the public’s valuation of having technology available to them, and their interest in picture quality certainly began to rise in a dramatic fashion. With advent of websites to visit and see pretty images and pictures, onto the beginning of social sharing websites, and sending pictures to your friends, family, and everyone else through text messaging, email, social sharing, and litany of other platforms, the importance of creating a quality picture was certainly of some importance to many families in the United States. This era, it began to be very common for people to take multiple pictures throughout the day, week, month, and year, and definitely more than their generations before them. Now, since everyone began owning some form of picture taking device, interest in being able to take a quality photography began to form in the minds of many. For awhile, there was definitely a certain couple of brands of cameras that were the chosen few if you wanted to be able to take the kind of photographs that could easily be analyzed by anyone by uploading it to a computer, or another screen, and many details throughout the picture were much easier to be seen in the high quality hd cameras.
Once the prices were starting to get into a reasonable range, and people only had to fork over a couple hundred bucks to get a high quality camera, people who owned these cameras were taking fantastic pictures, but it still required a touch of skill and knowledge about how focus and other camera features worked to really pull all the quality out of a picture that is possible. Editing software really helped people understand what is needed to be done to every picture to really transform the intricacies of the image.
