This makes it possible to prevent blurry pictures caused by hand movements.
The viewfinder is the optical "window" you look through to compose the scene. There are three different types of viewfinder implemented in digital cameras, though the most common is the Optical Viewfinder. On most cameras you can also use the LCD screen.
Indicates the resolution or quality of the picture. A mega pixel is a million pixels where every pixel is a dot and its size is decided by the resolution. Cameras that can handle more than 2 million pixels have the capacity to produce pictures that can be printed in A3 format, meaning you can print a photo in A3 format without a noticeable impairment of the picture.Please not that effective and total megapixels are not the same. The effective pixel count is the number that matters, because this is the actual number of pixels that can be used for recording an image.
Indicates the maximum resolution in pixels horizontal and vertical. The higher the resolution the higher the quality of the pictures.
|Available Resolutions||4000x3000, 4000x2664, 4000x2248, 2992x2992, 2816x2112, 2816x1864, 2816x1584, 2112x2112, 2048x1536, 2048x1360, 1920x1080, 1536x1536 pixels|
|Continuous Drive||12fps, 9fps, 6fps, 3fps|
The sensor is the chip (CCD, SuperCCD, CMOS) which records light falling on it, in the digital camera. It is the device which actually captures "the picture" (a digital camera's film). Most common standard is the CCD.
|Number of Total Pixels
The total figure indicates the number of light sensors on the imaging chip, while the effective figure shows how many are actually used.
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Focal length is measured in millimetres, it is defined as the distance from the lens to a point where parallel rays are focused to a point.
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
|Aperture (Lens data)
Indicates how much lights the lens lets in. The lower the f number, the more light comes in.
|Focus Distance (normal & macro)||50-infinity, 3-300 cm|
White balance is a name given to a system of colour correction to deal with differing lighting conditions.
|Auto, Preset (Fine, Shade, Fluorescent light, Daylight, Warm White, Cool White, Incandescent light, Underwater, Custom)|
The minimal and maximal shutter speeds available.
|Flash Modes||Auto, Forced Flash, Suppressed Flash, Slow Synchro, Red-eye Reduction, On, Off|
The sensitivity of the imaging chip
The metering system in a digital camera is the system which measures the amount of light in the current frame and calculates the best-fit exposure. The metering method defines how and what part of the image is used to calculate the exposure value, different manufacturers offer different metering modes but there are still similarities between them.
|Multi, Spot, Average|
|Image Format||JPEG (EXIF v. 2.3), RAW|
|Memory Types Supported||SD, SDHC, SDXC|
|Storage Included||66 MB|
Indicates if the camera can record video.
|Max resolution||1920x1080 (Full HD)|
|Available resolutions (video)
Frames per second (fps) may differ between low to high resolutions.
|1920x1080, 1280x720, 640x480|
|Battery Type||Lithium Ion|
|LCD Size||3 in|
|LCD Resolution||920000 pixels|
Indicates what type of port the camera has for connection to a computer. Most new digital cameras use USB connection, which is a fast way to transfer data. High end models might use FireWire, which is even faster than USB.
FireWire- The fastest way to transfer data
USB- the most common kind of interface making it possible to have a fast data transference
Serial- an older interface that is a bit slower in data transference
Parallel- a interface somewhere between Serial and USB standard.
Indicates the weight of the camera in grams.
|Dimensions (HxWxD)||59x100x33.3 mm|
|Miscellaneous||Face Detection, PictBridge supported|
