Understanding resolution settings of Digital Cameras

February 18, 2011  //  Posted by: cooldude  //  Category: Digital Cameras

Sometimes when you take out a print of the picture clicked by you using a digital camera, you will realize that the picture looks better in the digital camera. This is because of inappropriate resolution settings of your digital camera.

What is resolution? The digital picture consists of tiny solid color squares known as pixels. These pixels altogether make a picture. Usually a digital camera gives you three options for resolution; small, medium and large. When you set it at large, it captures maximum pixels in a shot which is equal to its capacity, while in the medium mode the pixels are reduced to half, and in small mode they become half the numbers in the medium mode.

The quality of a picture depends on the number of pixels. More pixels means the picture has been captured with more details. Thus choosing the setting which captures maximum number of pixels in a shot is the right resolution setting for your digital camera.

Are you studying photography and aspire to be a professional photographer later? Then it is high time you opt for a DSLR camera rather than the conventional point and shoot ones. This article discusses about the differences between the two and tells how the DSLR scores over the point and shoot cams.

Firstly, the DSLR cameras have a much superior image quality and one of the best among the lot is Canon 20 D. Point and shoot devices are not that swift and cannot response immediately the moment you press the shutter. Thus you tend to miss many precious candid moments. But the DSLR cameras are well equipped with instant response with minimal shutter lag.

Unlike the point and shoot ones, DSLR cams have the capacity of continuous shooting. Besides, the point and shoot ones come with a single lens while the DSLR ones have a wide variety of interchangeable lens. Hence, the DSLR devices are much costly and complicated to use than the simple point and shoot ones.

Digital cameras are a boon when it comes to the flexibility it offers you in terms of features and most importantly the option to just go on clicking pictures without worrying about the lack of memory! Do you plan to buy one soon? If yes, then there are a number of things that you must consider.

What is your main purpose in buying the camera? Is it for professional or competitive purposes? Do you plan to pursue photography as a hobby or is it for capturing moments whenever you feel like. If quality is the major concern, then go for a camera with a high resolution, a good flash and ample choice in its additional features. If it is just there to capture any exceptional or plain happy moment of your life, go for one with loads of space in its memory card.

It is a trade-off between features and space if you have budget constraints, if not then why bother, ask the shop to give you the best they have. Never ever go for the very cheap ones though.

Digital Camera, Technology,Digital cameras have become an invention tantamount to technical advancement. To begin, they have wonderful facets of optical zoom and digital zoom. These help in capturing landscape mode better. Moreover, even the peripheral vision comes within tow. Another hottie is the image stabilizer technique. It helps in rectifying the tremors and shakes of hands. Often photographs come out in a bizarre fashion owing to such dubious tremors. Smile shutter technology helps in clearing out the ill-passed smiles and blinks.

Face detection technology aids in creating a heterogeneous identity of photograph by giving different people, diverse kinds of face setting and color contrasts. Scene recognition technique allows the camera to catch different scenes in their respective modes. For instance, a twilight setting would look best through twilight mode. The camera easily adjusts to different settings and color contrasts. Red eye fix is another engaging facet and it helps in creating red-eye free photographs.

Digital Camera, Technology,Digital cameras are fortresses of modern day technology. For instance, let’s take Red-eye fix. Almost a couple of every hundred snaps we take are marred by introduction of red-eye. This is quite tarnishing and we have always been desperate to cast out the flaws. Presently, digital cameras come with Red-eye fix technology. This does not allow red-eye to set in for any of the pictures.

Scene recognition technology is other welcome facet. A digicams has various modes; the twilight mode, the sunset mode, the landscape and the portrait mode and many others. Scene recognition technique allows a moment to be captured through the mode it is closest to. This results in perfect clarity and color setting in accordance with the mode.

Present day digital cameras have inventive zoom facilities. The optical zoom and digital zoom ensure peripheral vision that is extremely helpful in shooting landscape mode.

Digital Camera, TechnologyDigital cameras are hot cakes presently. They have revolutionized the way we see photographic technology. Apart from some wonderful facets involved, Image stabilizer technique makes them worthy of a buy. Yes, face detection, red-eye fix, scene recognition, and various kinds of zooms are a bonus but image stabilization is no pushover either.

So many times, the hands of a photographer shake. We are humans and some of us are fraught with terrible nervous system. This induces a shake or a tremble. Unfortunately, this causes the image to be virtually tarnished. Image stabilizer technique ensures that irrespective of the shake, the eventual pictures come out well composed and perfect in orientation. Among the other facets of present day digicams, Smile Shutter ranks highly. It tells you about a bad smile the moment it sees one and warns you to alter the pose. Today, DC’s can even catch blinks and alarm you prior to a shot.

Technology, Digital CameraDigital cameras are the glowing mantra of modern day technology. They pack features of image stabilization; optical and digital zoom apart from the features of Face Detection, Scene Recognition, and Smile Shutter. Myriad other facilities such as Red-Eye Fix, potent coverage, and high picture clarity among other things make digital cameras the very best choices.

Face detection technology is one such feature that has been dwelt on too often. It is there in the present generation of digital cameras irrespective of the brand. It is the unique capability of a lens to adapt to a large number of people in a single shot. The lens automatically bestows each face a unique setting so that the pictures do not morph into a homogenous identity. Face detection technology ensures that the final picture that you get provides unique aura to different people that are part of the frame. For the purpose, the digital camera adjusts background, intensity and color setting of the frame.
