Steven J. Sasson was born on July 4, 1950 in Brooklyn, New York, USA. He’s an American electrical engineer and inventor of the digital camera. The invention process began in 1975. Steven Sasson received a grueling assignment from his Boss, Gareth A Lloyd, at the Eastment Kodak company. Sasson was to conduct a research answering whether or not it was possible to construct a camera using solid state electronics, solid state imagers, and an electronic sensor known as a charge coupled device (CCD) that gathers optical information
In 1972, Texas Instruments Inc has designed a filmless electronic camera but it wasn’t digital. It wasn’t an analog that uses electronics. After literature research on digital imaging seemed fruitless, Sasson turned his interests to what’s already available. Consisting of an adapted analog to digital converter from a Motoral component, Kodak camera film les and the small CCD chip was introduced by Fairchild Semiconductor minor in 1973.

Commonly, People use telephoto lens to zoom a subject from afar, but actually there are so many other functions of it.
This article will discuss all about this lens.
First of all, lets we find out the definitions of this telephoto. According to me myself, a lens can be considered as telephoto if it has a focal length of 60 mm or more which includes the lens standard or lens width.
There are two kinds of telephoto: one is a telephoto lens that cannot zoom (fix) such as Canon EF 200mm f/2.

Many beginner photographers think that a good photo can only be obtained by using a sharp lens that produces sharpness right to the edge of the frame. There’s truth in that, but it’s not always so. A sharp image without a sharp message doesn’t amount to much of a photograph. What would make a better image would be one that conveys a clear message and sparks an interest.
In photography, sharpness isn’t everything. The meaning and depth of story-telling is more valuable in a photograph. The following are a few examples of how mis-focused photographs can work. The mis-focus doesn’t hinder the photo from its story; in fact, it creates a bolder statement.
