    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).
    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.


    Exposure Features

    Maximum Aperture
    An aperture is a hole or an opening in an object through which light can enter. In digital cameras, the aperture can be adjusted and controlled to determine just how much light reaches the film or the image sensor.
    3.5 - 5.6

    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.

    Automatic Focus
    Automatic focus means that the camera or lens will focus on the objects automatically, instead of manually adjusting the lens. This is a convenient feature that makes taking pictures and working with lenses much simpler and easier.
    Manual Focus
    Manual focus means that the lens is able to be focused by hand according to the user. This feature is best for those that want to have complete control of what they are photographing, viewing, or displaying.

    Specialty Features

    Built-In Flash
    This feature means that the camera has a flash built-in. A flash is a bright artificial light that is flashed instantaneously at an object to illuminate it. There are many purposes used for using a flash, but the most common is that of adding light to an object that does not have enough on its own.
    Connection Type
    How the unit is connected to its source to send and receive information and data.

    On some items such as wire or cables, this specifies how the cables connect to transfer the signals.

    Video Recording
    Video recording means that the item is capable of capturing moving images.

    In the case of digital cameras, video recording means that the camera can double as a video camera. Usually the quality of the video is not the highest resolution, it is still good quality.

    Audio Recording
    Audio recording means that the item is able to record an audio track without a paired video track.
    Image Stabilization
    Image Stabilization is technology that results in a clear and not blurry image. The image stabilizer allows the camera to steady itself, even when the user holding the camera has shaky hands.
    Burst Shot Capability
    Burst Shot Capability means that the camera will allow the user to take multiple pictures one after the other in a very fast manner. This is ideal for sporting events when events happen very quick and a precise picture is desired.
    The majority of cameras on the market have a viewfinder used to frame the object before the picture is taken. Some of the newer cameras do not have a traditional viewfinder, but only have a LCD display to preview the object before the picture is taken.

    This will identify whether or not the object has a viewfinder.
