Digital Cameras
In digital cameras, pictures are captured when light from the object you are taking a picture of reflects light into the camera lens which then hit the image sensor chip which proceeds to break the image up into millions of pixels. The role of a sensor chip in a camera is to capture light and convert it into electrical signals.
Film Cameras
In film cameras, there is a lightproof box which, when it allows light in, creates an image by causing a chemical reaction on the photo film. The image first begins as an invisible, chemical trace called latent on its surface which is then developed, forming an image.
