What is Camera Obscura?

Step inside a darkened room.

Let the sunlight in through a small hole and, an image will appear on the opposite wall. a Very dark and upside-down image. 

Now, if you make the hole larger and put a LENS over the hole. The image will be much brighter and sharper. Yet, it remains upside-down.

If you use a LENS + PRISM combination (=BonfotonUP), the bright and sharp image will be seen right-side-UP!

How the camera obscura works. Drawing from Athanasius Kircher's book Ars Magna (1646)
