The presence of cell phones, it has become the primary needs that can not be separated in human life. Moreover, today many types of smart phones, which made the function becomes more compact and capable of providing many benefits for its users. In many smart phones devices installed sophisticated and full of innovation, so that communication can be done remotely, quickly connected and on target.

One of the advanced applications and arguably must exist on the phone at the moment, is the camera. Officially, the first camera phone recorded was a prototype that was developed by an artist, sculptor and innovator over 26 patents on his own, named Daniel A Henderson, in 1993. The ability of the first camera phone that is taking pictures or video. However, the phone does not yet have the ability to send images of the photos taken. The camera phone is now stored at The Smithsonian National Museum of American History, Washington DC, USA.

Meanwhile, camera phones, was developed commercially for the first time was on June 11, 1997, by a technology innovator and entrepreneur from France, named Philippe Khan.

Then, Khan quickly integrate camera with a mobile phone, and then the back of the phone is written ShaMail or PictureMail. This allows the tool is used to send pictures to other phones.

Khan later success to develop the software. He later founded Lightsurf, so his creation can be known by the public. Khan did not realize at the time that there are two companies that are competing to develop the first commercial camera phone.

Both companies are technology giants from Japan, the Sharp and Kyocera. At that time, Kyocera create a system that is designed for video sharing. Meanwhile, Sharp focus on developing a real-time image delivery. Sharp went on to win the competition, with getting their pairing technology with software developed by Khan, PictureMail. In 2001 in Japan, the collaboration is then applied at the first commercial mobile phone cameras in the world, the J-SHO4 or J-Phone.

Specs cameras used in the J-Phone is 110,000 pixels CMOS with 256 color display. The mobile phone weighs 74 grams, dimensions 127x39x17 millimeters. Success J-SHO4 then inspire other mobile phone manufacturers to make camera phones. In 2006, there were at least 50 percent of the mobile device has a camera.
