Photography info:

In 1880 dry gelatin plates were made which were equal to wet plates in speed and quality. The advantage of these gelatin plates was that they can be stored and used when the need arises. In 1884 George Eastman developed the film technology and it replaced photographic plates. As exposure time got reduced cameras with mechanical shutters were developed. The cameras became smaller and versatile and can be hand held.
