How a Digital Camera Works

By Camry James

Telephoto zoom lens: for any one interested in wildlife photography a
telephoto lens should become your standard lens.

There are many different types of photography. You can take pictures of
anything and there is someone out there somewhere who would like to
see the pictures that you take. So, photography is a great field to get

Of course, this is landscape photography on a big scale. Not many people
are lucky enough to start off traveling the world.

Photography is the art of reproducing pictures of people, objects or
places in their exact likeness. These images can be transferred on any
photosensitive material. Photography includes taking and printing pictures.

If you enjoy photography and are thinking of it as a career, there are
actually many different directions you can choose from. Obviously, there is
professional photography but even in that choice there are many other
smaller options that you have as well.

How a Digital Camera Works

Digital cameras come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. Different
brands of digital cameras also offer users an array of features designed to
make each and every shot fantastic. Despite the numerous features
offered by digital cameras, manufacturers still manage to create products
that are simple enough for a child to use. Day by day digital cameras are
becoming a well-known fixture in most homes across the globe. In fact,
most of the people around the world own one and use it on a regular
basis. Digital cameras have also been incorporated into a variety of
technical gadgets that have been integrated into the lifestyle of people

PDA devices as well as cellular phones are just some of the technological
devices that have a digital camera feature. Despite being an add-on
feature, the digital camera device installed in these gadgets fair relatively
well compared to detached models.

As a matter of fact the memory used for digital cameras, detached models
or otherwise, can easily be upgraded using memory cards. The added
memory will certainly come in handy because most digital cameras can also
be used to take video clips.

There are numerous brands of digital cameras available on the market
today. Mainstream electronic brands like Nikon, Kodak, Canon and Olympus
are just some of the manufacturers of conventional 35mm cameras who
have jumped on the bandwagon to create their own lines of digital
cameras. Other famous brands that manufacture digital cameras include
Panasonic, Casio and Sony.

Basic Features of Digital Cameras to Consider

Regardless of brand names, digital cameras have the same basic features
that any consumer should know and consider before buying one. Even
though digital cameras are generally a point and shoot device, certain
features can often single out a particular brand or model. A good example
of this is the term megapixel, which became known when digital cameras
were introduced in the market.

Megapixels, which means millions of pixels, measure the quality and size of
a digital camera. Pixels refer to the dots that make up a picture.
Therefore a digital camera that has about a 5-megapixel resolution will
produce better quality pictures compared to a 3-megapixel digital camera.
There are contests in almost every category you can think of; wildlife,
underwater, boats, boat docks, people, children, self portraits, birds,
tress, flowers, and much more. Some contests are not category-specific
but leave you freedom to use your creativity.

Is there any reason that YOU cannot take professional quality
photographs? Not any more. We are in the digital age ¨C and for
photographers (by the way, that¡¯s you) this is good news!

A macro lens will also allow you to take unique abstract images. By using a
wide aperture with a macro lens on natural shapes can create the perfect
abstract image.

With the tremendous technological advances in the art of photography, it
is no more just fun and frolic but has acquired the dimensions of a full-
fledged profession.

There is a wide world of photography. It touches each of us in our lives
on a daily basis in some form or another. Photography is so much a part of
our culture now that we hardly even notice all the places that it exists.

Moreover, photos taken with a digital camera that offers greater
megapixels can be enlarged safely without sacrificing the quality of the
picture. Average digital cameras with less than 3 megapixels often forfeit
the clarity of the picture once it is enlarged. Unfortunately, there is a
downside to using a digital camera with greater megapixels as they
consume more of the camera¡¯s memory.

The zoom function of a digital camera is another feature that most
consumers should consider. There are generally two types of zoom
features for many of the digital cameras on the market today. The optical
zoom feature is common in devices without permanent lenses. The user
can simply zoom and focus on the subject to be photographed. A digital
zoom feature is similar to using an editing software program for images. In
most cases, a digital camera may offer both types of zoom features. Most
digital camera users recommend concentrating on the optical zoom
feature to validate the quality of the device.

What to Look for In a Digital Camera

A digital camera generally has an LCD screen. This wide screen replaces
the small aperture in conventional cameras through which you look into
before taking the shot. The LCD screen allows the photographer to view
the picture while taking it to see how it would appear in reality. Digital
cameras have memory stick slots where memory sticks are inserted.
Unfortunately, memory is another major consideration that many
consumers often overlook. For the most part it is because digital cameras
that require larger memory can be quite expensive.

On the whole, many of the digital cameras of today make use of
rechargeable batteries. Consumers should check if the particular brand
they wish to purchase comes with a charger. If not, then you need to
purchase it separately.

Downloading pictures taken with the digital camera is another factor that
need to be considered. In most cases, many digital cameras can easily be
connected to a desktop computer using a USB port. Through this
connection, a user may download the pictures taken with the camera into
the computer¡¯s hard drive for printing or editing.

If you love taking pictures and the idea of a career in photography sounds
good to you, just how do you begin finding photography jobs? Equipment
is an important factor in taking great underwater photography. Of course
you will need an underwater camera but there is more than just that.

any fine print and be sure you agree with the terms. For example, some
contests have rules about copyright and you give up copyright by
submitting, others ask for print to publish ¨C even if you don¡¯t win, and
without notifying you. If you do not agree to the terms of the contest,
you should not enter.

Getting developed rolls of film back from a reunion or vacation is
heartbreaking if something went wrong (and even someone having their
eyes closed, if it is during a wedding portrait, is ¡°something wrong¡±).
