How does an analog camera work?

A camera uses a film to record the images. A film recorder is used to capture the image with vector instructions. The image is captured in the form of a raster video signal. After that, the recorded image is exposed to light and printed to a paper.  This paper is filled with millions of microcapsules of dyes of any of these colors: cyan, magenta and yellow. When exposed to light of selective color these capsules get hardened.  Say, exposure to red light hardens the cyan filled capsules. When pressure is applied to the paper the unhardened capsules of magenta and yellow breaks cause mixing of colors of magenta and yellow yielding red color in the paper.
