Digital Camera’s Arch Enemies



Many assumes that the shutter count of a camera determines the age of the camera. There’s some truth in that, but it’s not all there is to it. Sure, the more frequently a camera is used, the greater the chance of damage but the figures on the shutter count can’t be used as a reference to the length of the camera’s remaining working life.

Sensors allow DSLR cameras to capture light and produce the digital image. It is, in short, the heart of a DSLR camera. Because they are charged, they have a strong tendency to attract dust particles.

Photography consists of the ancient Greek words “photos” meaning “light” and “graphein” meaning “draw/graph”. So essentially, photography is the practice of drawing with light. So if we’re too dependent on photo-editing programs (such as Photoshop) to create a good photograph, then do we still deserve to be called photographers? Here are some statements as food for thought for those who feel they are photographers.
