A point-and-shoot camera, also commonly called as compact camera, refers to a still camera designed primarily for simple tasks. If you go back 126 years (when you manage that give us a shout) you will find out that the first point and shoot camera was found, then (created by George Eastman the inventor who founded the Eastman Kodak Company). Its price was around 25$ (600$ is you compare it with today’s prices).
Coming out with the slogan ‘You Press the Button, we Do The Rest’ Eastman’s camera gave courage to everyday individuals to photograph, friends, family and memories.
