Cameras have surely become an integral part of human life. Look around and you will definitely find someone clicking away with his or her digital or mobile camera. From compact, sleek, and sexy designs to out-of-the-world weird looking gadgets, camera designs have come a long way.
Technology has been a major factor in changing the way as to how we click and store pictures. Gone are the days when we had to convert photographic films to hard copies of images, storing them in photo album that would degrade with time.
