There's nothing wrong with my camera

Other than the fact that it's obsolete.

Well, I'm pretty sure that's, like, two centuries off. I don't think cameras were even around in 1816.

The first partially successful photograph of a camera image was made in approximately 1816 by Nicéphore Niépce, using a very small camera of his own making and a piece of paper coated with silver chloride, which darkened where it was exposed to light.

Well, that's interesting if not useless information.

It's not useless. It just further proves my claim.

But it doesn't. Wint said the camera from 1816 was "very small". My camera clearly covers the majority of my face.

Basted on what I just read, I do believe it meant that it was the size of the average self-developing camera.
