How Animals Inspire Photographing Techniques & Inventions!

The eye is truly one of the most admired and most accurate organs in the human body and all living animals.

This organ takes different sizes, shapes, colors, and techniques according to their purpose and to different species of creatures.

And Yes:

It is a truth that most of our current inventions and techniques related to photographing are inspired by animals.

This Idea sounds to be weird for the first time, but when we try to compare some animal eye characteristics to our new cameras and photographing tools ...
Well, the similarity is obviously clear!

 Well, Today, in this article wel will see some examples of animal eyes specifics that we use every day while taking pictures and photographing.


We always use the fish-eye mode on our cameras, download apps on our phones providing this technique, or simply use the fisheye lens, to allow us to capture a wider angle of pictures or the see with 180 degrees.

This technique is inspired by its name from fish, who can see their entourage with a wider angle than humans or other animals, and There are fish who see in two directions at the same time!

  • Owl's Eye:

When humans made Cameras, he didn't think about filming or taking photos at night, which means in the dark, but after decades of searching and observations, humans wondered if they can do a simulation of some animals' eyes who can see in the dark.

The most suitable example of these animals are Owls, and As long as we talk about the intensity of vision, we can not ignore that mysterious object, which we call (OWLS).

The owl sees things on a hundred times less light than a human needs to see. His forward eyes are created to stare into the darkness. Like humans, the owls have a double look.

And it was the origin of inventing night-camera, which is able to record at the darkest nights.

  • camels: The first to know the glasses!

Long before a person knows the sunglasses, the camel knows them. 

Because we discover in his eyes a third transparent eyelid drops them and protects them the glare of the sun.

And by the way, there are hundreds of lenses who only protect your camera from dust, strong light, or sunlight.

Bird's eyes are equipped as well with natural glasses that cover her lenses, and then staring at the sun's glare and see everything in front of her without being affected. 

  • Falcon / Eagle eyes :

The eyes of the falcon are the most powerful organs of sight in all creatures.

They inspired the camera phones and lenses to increase their zoom ability and high capturing quality, in addition to capturing moving thing in speed motion, the same technique we use while shooting sports players, who move fast!

Scientists say: Falcon can glimpse its prey from a distance of more than two and a half kilometers. 

The falcon's vision is due to the magnitude of its eyeball, and the thickness of its retina (the tissue on which the visual images fall behind the eye) is twice the thickness of the human retina.

  • Four Eyes Animals:

There is also a type of fish called four-eyed, if the general, when they swim above the surface of the water they see  above, at the same time, while their  eyes in the water looking for prey devoured, 

Did you remember something from this creature,


It is the new cell-phones with multiple cameras on their back, to simulate the view of these four eyes animals.

  • Multiple eyes in one eye:

You may have seen (hippopotamus) or some of those worms that we see above the surface of the water, one eye divided several eye barriers in several directions.

 In her eyes, special dyes divide the pupil; at the same time, one eye can look above and below it.

It just likes how our 360 Cameras work, they can see up and down at the same time, while using only one camera.

  • Cats teach us!

You have certainly noticed the change of your cat's pupil, depending on the light quantity.

Technically, our cameras from the inside use the same technique while using the autofocus or the automatic lighting setting or the HDR tool, with adjusts automatically the light level, to give you the best photos.

And we, as humans do the same thing, our Pupil is bigger in night and darkness, but smaller in light.

last word:

If we study the eye of every living creature, we will see in it strange features beyond description, and ultimate new photographing techniques, who surpass our current photographing Level.
