1950 - Dufaycolor

Most of the variations of color photography have since become long forgotten in the world of photography. However – Dufaycolor was not one of them. In fact, this color process was one of the most popular of the time, and lasted quite a while as well.

It first appeared in 1932, by French inventor Louis Dufay. It utilized a geometric screen made up of red, green, and blue lines and rectangles. While the autochrome was used more by professional photographers, the Dufaycolor was the first readily available consumer product, because of its simplicity and ease of use.

This process was the last of the screen processes, and lasted until around the 1950s.

Color photography was now easier for the average photographer to use and access.
