The “world’s first” camera is currently on display at the Capital Museum in Beijing, China through May 12th. One more picture after the break.

Cameras may work with the light of the visible spectrum or with other portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. A camera consists of some kind of enclosed hollow, with an opening or aperture at one end for light to enter, and a recording or viewing surface for capturing the light at the other end
