Image Details

Image Sensor
An image sensor transfers a optical image to a digital signal. This is primarily used in digital cameras and other similar devices. The most popular image sensors are the CCD (Charge-Coupled Device) and the CMOS (Complementary Metal–Oxide–Semiconductor).
CCD
Megapixels
A megapixel is 1 million pixels.

It is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras. Also the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a digital camera with 3264 x 2448 sensor elements is commonly said to have 8 Megapixels. This is because 3264 x 2448 = 7,990,272.

Optic Features

Digital Zoom
The amount of digital zoom refers to how many time the camera will zoom in on an object digitally. This generally involves digitally cropping an image while keeping the same aspect ratio.

When looking for a quality zoom camera, it is better to look for a great optical zoom than a digital zoom. A optical zoom maintains the detail of the zoomed image, whereas the digital zoom can lower the quality if zoomed in to much.

4 x
Optical Zoom
The optical zoom on a camera is the best way to zoom in on an object. This will increase its size on the final image.

The optical zoom is the most accurate choice for zoom as it will keep the quality of the object as one is zooming in on it.

5 x
