Steven Sasson: Inventing the Digital Camera

Ever wondered who was behind the invention of the digital camera and how did it all began? Well, unlike many other important inventions, in this case you can actually meet him face to face (at least virtually) thanks to filmmaker and photographer David Friedman who created this beautiful video for a special series on living inventors.

We actually had the privilege to interview Sasson last year for a special article we did on him and he mentioned several interesting historical anecdotes about his invention for the first time – a must read if you are interested in the history of photography (or the history of technology).
