Transcript of All About Digital Cameras
Basic and smallest unit of a photography
1 Megapixel = 1 million pixels
Most basic digital cameras have 6-9 MP
What's a pixel and how many do I need?
Refers to the number of pixels, both horizontally and vertically
The higher the resolution, the finer the image details will be
Types of Digital Cameras
Beginning to offer more options and features
Easy to send
Low quality for print
Top of the line
High resolution images
Accept interchangeable lenses and accessories
Function automatically but use manual controls
Can purchase body and lenses separately
Prices are moderately high to extremely expensive
$500 and upwards of $3000
SLR - Single Lense Reflex
The larger the sensor the better the image quality
Allows you to shoot more of a scene
The smaller the sensor, the less of the scene you shoot
So the More Megapixels I have...
the better my photo quality will be?
How can a 6mp SLR take a better
photo than a 10mp point and shoot?
BECAUSE SENSOR SIZE MATTERS
All pixels are not made the same
Larger sensors have larger pixels recording an image and do it better
SLRs have large sensors
Point and shoots have small sensors
Megapixels vs. Print Size
ALWAYS buy a memory card
Memory Cards: What kinds?
SD (secure digital) small, reliable
SDHC (secure digital high capacity) greater storage capacity
MiniSD: 1/2 size of SD, small digital cameras or cell phones
CompactFlash: large and square-- range of speeds for SLRs
The faster the card, the more expensive
How big of a memory card do I need?
alkaline- non rechargeable
very short battery life
Can be used over and over
Longer battery life
Long battery life
Nikon VR= vibration reduction
Canon IS= Image Stabilization
Pentax SR=Shake Reduction
Sony SSS=Super Steady-Shot
Zoom- Digital or Optical?
Lens physically extends to magnify object
W= Wide angle
Crops your image and magnifies result
Gives poorer results
Some cameras have both and will warn you when it changes to use digital zoom
