In the past, there was a time when you could not take a picture while in motion. This was because it would appear all blurry. The camera had one lens, and as such, unless it was suited for your kind of setting, it meant that you had to either have several cameras or make do with the photos that you got. Thanks to the ever-changing technology, narcissists and photo-loving people can make the best photos with just one camera.
