CCD vs CMOS-DSLR Camera, Which One is Better - Camera Sensor

CCD vs CMOS-DSLR Camera, Which One is Better - Camera Sensor

An image sensor is a device that converts an optical image to an electric signal. It is used mostly in digital cameras and other imaging devices. Early sensors were video camera tubes but a modern one is typically a charge-coupled device (CCD) or a complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) active pixel sensor. Today, most digital still cameras use either a CCD image sensor or a CMOS sensor. Both types of sensor accomplish the same task of capturing light and converting it into electrical signals. CCD vs CMOS. That is the question. Whether ’tis nobler to choose quality and cost or to choose features and energy efficiency. Should it be CCD (charge coupled device) or CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor)when making your digital camera choice? Read the rest of this entry »

Advantages on Photo-Hunting Alone

Photo-Hunting Alone

Photo-Hunting Alone


Many of my friends are not comfortable traveling alone when they want to hunt for photos. Maybe they think they’ll feel lonely, unsafe, and not confident enough to carry around a camera on their own.

There are however a number of advantages to going at it alone. Some of these are:

FREE TO CHOOSE YOUR OWN AREAS AND SPOTS TO PHOTOGRAPH
It’s often difficult to reach to an agreement about the destination for photographing when you are with others. Even when you have reached an agreement, there’s still going to be one that gets disappointed. You’ll also lose precious photographing time in the decision-making process.

FREE TO CHOOSE THE TIME
Not everyone can go on a certain weekend (or on days that’s been agreed upon before), not everyone can spend the night, not everyone can take a day off, and other reasons that’ll hinder the photo hunt from every happening. Going by yourself means you can go whenever you want, whenever you think it’s best for you to go. Read the rest of this entry »
