I came across an article comparing the human eye with a digital camera. The eye stood out far above the camera as for now. But we do not know how long it will be before the camera catches up with the eye. While the camera has a maximum capacity of 12 megapixels, the eye is estimated to be equivalent to over 500 megapixels!
The article got me thinking about light and the eye. I read that light is not only wave form of energy, it has a particle aspect too. This makes for the duality in the nature of light. Light when passed through 2 vertical narrow slits creates bright and dark bands on the screen, attributed to interference of the split wave. The bands cannot be explained by the particle theory of light. On the other hand, scattering of reflected light cannot be explained by the wave theory. How can the 2 aspects be together? This duality may be an easy to digest concept for the boffins, but it did get my head spinning.
I learnt that the particle of light, named ‘photon’ by Gilbert N. Lewis, had amazing properties. It always moved at an incredible speed of 300,000 kilometers per second, never stopping. It had no mass. But it had momentum and energy! Even when the photons hit a surface and they would scatter reflecting off it in all directions, but they would not lose any speed after the impact! And it was this scattering of photons from the surface of an object which enabled an eye to see it!
Shooting underwater is really an art and like all art it can be perfected if you have the passion and perseverance to get the right picture. Underwater life is exquisite with beautiful textures and colors of corals and sea creatures, if you can capture the essence of the deep blue, there is really nothing like it. However, it doesn’t come easy, especially if you are packing a whole lot of gear to keep breathing, you will have to do a good balancing act, and if you are still a beginner this can be scary. We give you some must-know facts and tips for successful underwater shooting.
If you already have a digital camera, one of the first things to do is to find out if your camera can get a waterproof case to go underwater shooting. You can check out waterproof cases from camera manufacturers. You will find most often than not, a case exclusively made just for your camera. If it is available make an investment to buy one. Alternatively, universal waterproof soft cases are the next option.
Waterproof soft cases or bags are a sound purchase if you intend to go underwater for snorkeling, swimming in a lake or a pool. Your regular digital cameras do not allow for pictures to be taken at a pressure greater than that which is below 10 meters, so if you plan to take pictures of depth of less than 10 meters waterproof soft case is one of the surest investments you will make. Also look for waterproof soft cases with a high transparency lens filter will allow clearer underwater pictures.
3D Illustration is a 2d representation of a 3d object in the virtual world. The illustrators role is to convey in the best possible manner, the design of the structure, through a rendered perspective.
Modeling a building for architectural presentation and analysis is different from modeling cartoon character, aliens from distant planet. Nobody know what aliens look like so the modelers have an advantage in his interpretation. Almost everybody knows what a structure looks like, and those expectation should be met by the illustrator.
With the aid of the Architectural Software, the Architects, Interior Designers, and Industrial Designers – anyone who makes aesthetic decisions in 3-Dimensions, will find that 3D computer visualization is a very effective way of conveying design ideas.
The best point and shoot digital camera is the one that will take quality pictures in auto mode without a need to adjust the aperture and shutter speed. The camera will also have an automatic white mode, which will eliminate a necessary understanding about setting the color balance when shooting outdoors or indoors. The camera will be compact and not bulky. It will come with complete instructions on how to use it and take perfect pictures. The best camera will have an affordable price. It will be easy to use for a beginner as well as an advanced user.
The best point and shoot digital camera is going to be a Fuji FinePix F50fd with 12.0 megapixels and three times optical zoom. The 2.7-inch viewing screen is the ideal size for seeing your subjects before and after the shot is taken. The Face detection technology as well as the red eye reduction is great for beginners and up. The digital camera is compact and lightweight, which is what makes it so ideal. The FinePix F50fd is an amazing camera for the price. You might fine a Canon or Kodak EasyShare camera that is cheaper, but the megapixels will also be lower.
When you are looking for the best point and shoot digital camera, look at a Fuji and compare it to other point and shoot cameras. You will see that the Fuji will offer a quality picture and a large enough viewing screen that anyone can see with struggling. The larger screen takes up the backside of the camera and provides a crisp and clear picture. The camera does have image stabilization, which means that you cannot have a blurry picture just because you shake a little when trying to shoot the subject. This is the best digital camera for the price.
So, rumor has it, your looking for the top rated digital cameras ever to grace a store shelf. Well, what if I told you that the even if you get the best rated digital camera on the planet, it still won’t save you from taking pictures that suck out loud. Yep you heard me. That may be a bit harsh, but better I tell you the truth now, then wait for you to spend a thousand or more dollars on the latest and greatest camera that Canon, Nikon, or Pentax have to offer.
A great camera doesn’t necessarily guarantee great pictures. I’ve seen some pretty amazing pictures taken with cheap little point and shoot cameras. Its true, sad but true. Money may not be able to buy you love and happiness, but it’s also true that it can’t buy you the camera to make you the next Annie Lebowitz. It just can’t. The only thing that can get you to take better pictures, is to learn to be a better photographer.
Photography is a skill, like any other, and you can’t just throw money at the problem, and hope it’s fixed. It’s going to take some time and effort on your part to make that happen as well. However, once you begin to understand more about composition, lighting, color, shading, field of depth and other components of what makes a good photograph, then and only then will a better camera do wonders for your images.
Digital cameras now outsell their 35mm predecessors in the general market and it is only the diehard celluloid junkies that maintain allegiance to film. The commercial photography industry now uses virtually exclusive digital technology to produce images due to their immediate shot review and post production efficiency. The feature film industry still maintains loyalty to Super 35mm film however the latest advances in HD technology has threatened even this most sacrosanct of institutions.
Digital cameras are available in a multitude of specifications from cost effective basic models to extremely expensive professional kit. They are user friendly and compatible with editing software making them much more accessible. The commercial interest in digital cameras is because the images that are captured can be checked immediately which enables time and money saving, ensuring the acceptable quality of product before wrapping a shoot.
The principals behind that of digital cameras are based on light-sensitive sensors or pixels. This leaves some diehard disciples of celluloid to claim that the images do not exist in their entirety as they are made of variable dots of light and therefore not a completely accurate depiction of and image. This is quite pedantic however and the ease of use and post-production qualities far out way the potential for pixelated images.
A device that makes video recordings and takes photographs with the help of a light sensor is called a digital camera. There are certain cameras equipped to take only still photographs, can also record moving pictures as well as sound. The digital camera is steadily gaining popularity over the other cameras available.
The advantages of the digital camera are many. The images taken can be seen immediately after it is recorded. The memory storing capacity is also amazing. Even erasing or editing is simple task in these cameras. The multiple functions of this camera, is the reason for its wide ranging usage. It is used in cell phone s as well as in the astronomical instruments to obtain perfect pictures.
The original concept of the digital camera in its rudimentary form was conceived by Eugene Lany, a scientist working on jet propulsion projects. He had clearly elucidated he process by which still photos could be taken with the help of a light sensor. This was conceived much before the images were digitized on scanners. The main reason for making the devise was to keep the astronauts informed about their navigation during the trips to space. Various photographs of the planets and the other celestial bodies were sent by them.
