Digital Cameras

digital camera or digicam is a camera that captures photographs in digital memory. Most cameras produced today are digital,[1] and while there are still compact cameras on the market, the use of dedicated digital cameras is dwindling, as digital cameras are now incorporated into many devices ranging from mobile devices to vehicles.[2] However, high-end, high-definition dedicated cameras are still commonly used by professionals.

Digital and movie cameras share an optical system, typically using a lens with a variable diaphragm to focus light onto an image pickup device.[3] The diaphragm and shutter admit the correct amount of light to the imager, just as with film but the image pickup device is electronic rather than chemical. However, unlike film cameras, digital cameras can display images on a screen immediately after being recorded, and store and delete images from memory. Many digital cameras can also record moving videos with sound. Some digital cameras can crop and stitch pictures and perform other elementary image editing.

Digital Single-lens Reflex – DSLR Cameras

digital single-lens reflex camera (also called a digital SLR or DSLR) is a digital camera that combines the optics and the mechanisms of a single-lens reflex camera with a digital imaging sensor, as opposed to photographic film. The reflex design scheme is the primary difference between a DSLR and other digital cameras. In the reflex design, light travels through the lens, then to a mirror that alternates to send the image to either the viewfinder or the image sensor. The traditional alternative would be to have a viewfinder with its own lens, hence the term “single lens” for this design. By using only one lens, the viewfinder of a DSLR presents an image that will not differ substantially from what is captured by the camera’s sensor. A DSLR differs from non-reflex single-lens digital cameras in that the viewfinder presents a direct optical view through the lens, rather than being captured by the camera’s image sensor and displayed by a digital screen.

Mirrorless Cameras

mirrorless interchangeable lens camera (MILC) features a single, removable lens and uses a digital display system rather than an optical viewfinder. The word “mirrorless” indicates that the camera does not have an optical mirror or an optical viewfinder like a conventional Single Lens Reflex camera (SLR), but an electronic viewfinder which displays what the camera image sensor sees. [1] Like an SLR, an interchangeable lens mirrorless camera accepts any of a series of interchangeable lenses compatible with the lens mount of that camera. A mirrorless interchangeable lens camera is a further evolution from the film SLR camera, through the digital or DSLR camera, to a mirrorless system camera accepting interchangeable lenses, an MILC.

The biggest difference between a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera and a digital SLR or (DSLR) is that an electronic viewfinder or EVF is used to display what the image sensor sees as opposed to using a mirror-box, a movable mirror, a prism and an optical viewfinder or OVF which displays what the lens sees. [2] MILCs normally use a not so-accurate contrast-detect auto-focus, rather than the faster and precise phase-detect auto-focus used in DSLR cameras.[3] [4]

Compared to DSLR cameras, mirrorless cameras are mechanically simpler and often smaller, lighter and quieter due to the elimination of the moving mirror for OVF viewing. Because of fewer moving parts the camera can also be more durable.

Since light metering and auto-focus are done on the image sensor, mirrorless cameras also don’t need a secondary auto-focus mirror, nor a separate light metering sensor. Regarding the metering, a Mirrorless usually has no more than 250 metering photo-sensors (usually they have only 5) and a professional DSLR has more than one-hundred thousand RBG photo-sensors giving more precision to it.

Mirrorless cameras are still somewhat challenged to provide an EVF with the clarity and low-time-lag responsiveness of the OVFs used on DSLRs.[citation needed]. Furthermore, the contrast detect auto-focus (CDAF) used in mirrorless cameras, even when augmented by on-sensor phase detect auto-focus, tends to be marginally slower than that of phase detect auto-focus (PDAF) used by DSLRs.[citation needed] On the other hand, on-sensor auto-focus is more accurate and free of the adjustment requirements of the indirect but marginally faster focusing system of the DSLR. Also, the exposure rates possible with a mirror-less camera in first frame auto-focus mode, called single frame, is many times faster than that of a mirrored DSLR. However, photographing fast moving subjects in continuous auto-focus mode where the camera attempts to refocus for each frame, the high frame rate of the mirror-less camera will outpace its own auto-focus producing one or several out-of-focus frames between each in-focus frame, whereas the slower frame rate and faster auto-focus of a DSLR produces a higher percentage of in-focus exposures.

DSLRs largely replaced film-based SLRs during the 2000s, and despite the rising popularity of mirrorless system cameras in the early 2010s, DSLRs remain the most common type of interchangeable lens camera in use as of 2018.

Cameras

camera is an optical instrument for recording or capturing images, which may be stored locally, transmitted to another location, or both. The images may be individual still photographs or sequences of images constituting videos or movies. The camera is a remote sensingdevice as it senses subjects without any contact . The word camera comes from camera obscura, which means “dark chamber” and is the Latin name of the original device for projecting an image of external reality onto a flat surface. The modern photographic camera evolved from the camera obscura. The functioning of the camera is very similar to the functioning of the human eye. The first permanent  was made in 1826 by Joseph Nicéphore Niépce.
