An Animated History of the Camera, from 1900 to Today

Animator Portero Delantero of Barcelona, Spain, created this 1.5-minute animation showing a brief history of the photographic camera.

Rather than Kafri beatboxing, however, we're treated with the wonderfully bizarre sight of the album covers making the music.
