Cameras

A digital camera (or digicam) is a camera that takes video or still photographs, or both, digitally by recording images via an electronic image sensor. It is the main device used in the field of digital photography. Most 21st century cameras are digital.

Sensor properties

Image sensor resolution
i

Image sensor resolution

The image sensor resolution results from the number of pixels in millions. For most applications, a resolution of 12-16 megapixels is sufficient. A higher resolution has advantages, especially in post-processing, as more image information is available.

Image sensor type
i

Image sensor type

An image sensor is a device that converts an optical image to an electric signal. It is used mostly in digital cameras and other imaging devices. An image sensor is typically a charge-coupled device (CCD) or a complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) active-pixel sensor.

Live MOS sensor
i

Live MOS sensor

It is claimed that the sensor can achieve the same image quality as CCD-based sensors while keeping energy consumption down to CMOS levels.

The Four Thirds standard (or Four Thirds for short) is a lens mount standard developed by Olympus and Kodak specifically for digital SLR cameras.

ISO light sensitivity (auto)

ISO light sensitivity (auto)

The American Standards Association (ASA) and the Deutsches Institut für Normung (DIN) film speed standards have been combined into the ISO standards. The current International Standard for measuring the speed of color negative film is ISO 5800:1987 from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Related standards ISO 6:1993 and ISO 2240:2003 define scales for speeds of black-and-white negative film and color reversal film. This system defines both an arithmetic and a logarithmic scale, combining the previously separate ASA and DIN systems.
Commonly, the logarithmic speed is omitted; for example, "ISO 100" denotes ISO 100/21°.

200 - 1600
ISO light sensitivity (manual)
i

ISO light sensitivity (manual)

The ISO 5800 standard defines the light sensitivity of film material.
For both scales: the higher the number, the more light-sensitive the film. For linear ASA scaling, a double value corresponds to twice the sensitivity. In the logarithmic DIN scale, an increase of 3° corresponds to a doubling.
In photography, doubling the light sensitivity of the film material means that under given lighting conditions the exposure time can be halved to avoid camera shake or the lens can be closed one f-stop further to achieve a greater depth of field.

Camera lens properties

Lens mount
i

Lens mount

A lens mount is an interface — mechanical and often also electrical — between a photographic camera body and a lens. It is confined to cameras where the body allows interchangeable lenses, most usually the single lens reflex type or any movie camera of 16 mm or higher gauge. Lens mounts are also used to connect optical components in instrumentation that may not involve a camera, such as the modular components used in optical laboratory prototyping which join via C-mount or T-mount elements.

Autofocus

Autofocus (or AF) is a feature of some optical systems that allows them to obtain (and in some systems to also continuously maintain) correct focus on a subject, instead of requiring the operator to adjust focus manually.

Autofocus type
Contrast-based
i

Contrast-based

Focusing by means of contrast measurement at contour edges is basically the same as focusing the eye, i.e. the photographer, without further aids: The image width of the lens is varied until the brightness curve at light/dark contour edges has a maximum steepness. The camera's processor calculates the frequency distribution in the image, and the greater the proportion of high frequencies (i.e. abrupt light-dark changes), the sharper the image.

SD

Secure Digital (SD) is a flash (non-volatile) memory card format developed by Matsushita, SanDisk, and Toshiba for use in portable devices. Today it is widely used in digital cameras, handheld computers, PDAs, mobile phones, GPS receivers, and video game consoles. SD card capacities range from 8 MB to 2 GB and from 4 GB to 32 GB for SDHC cards as of 2008.

Image file formats

Image file formats are standardized means of organizing and storing digital images. Image files are composed of either pixel or vector (geometric) data that are rasterized to pixels when displayed (with few exceptions) in a vector graphic display. The pixels that constitute an image are ordered as a grid (columns and rows); each pixel consists of numbers representing magnitudes of brightness and color.

JPEG

JPEG

In computing, JPEG is a commonly used method of lossy compression for digital photography (image). The degree of compression can be adjusted, allowing a selectable tradeoff between storage size and image quality. JPEG typically achieves 10:1 compression with little perceptible loss in image quality.

JPEG compression is used in a number of image file formats. JPEG/Exif is the most common image format used by digital cameras and other photographic image capture devices; along with JPEG/JFIF, it is the most common format for storing and transmitting photographic images on the World Wide Web. These format variations are often not distinguished, and are simply called JPEG.

Battery-operated

A rechargeable battery or storage battery is a group of one or more electrochemical cells. They are known as secondary cells because their electrochemical reactions are electrically reversible. Rechargeable batteries come in many different shapes and sizes, ranging anything from a button cell to megawatt systems connected to stabilize an electrical distribution network. Several different combinations of chemicals are commonly used, including: lead-acid, nickel cadmium (NiCd), nickel metal hydride (NiMH), lithium ion (Li-ion), and lithium ion polymer (Li-ion polymer).

Rechargeable batteries have lower total cost of use and environmental impact than disposable batteries. Some rechargeable battery types are available in the same sizes as disposable types. Rechargeable batteries have higher initial cost, but can be recharged very cheaply and used many times.

Edition 01/2017- Die Olympus PEN E-PL8 ist eine einsteigerfreundliche Systemkamera und konnte sich im Test gleich in mehrerer Hinsicht auszeichnen. Vor allem die hohe Serienbildgeschwindigkeit, das praktische Selfie-Display und das hochwertige Gehäuse gefallen. Die Bildqualität ist größtenteils gut und selbst bei suboptimalem Licht überdurchschnittlich. Bildrauschen tritt nur wenig auf, allerdings leidet ab ISO 3.200 die Detailtreue etwas. Schwächster Aspekt ist die Ausstattung, da Extras wie ein Sucher und ein Mikrofonanschluss nicht implementiert wurden. Auch der rudimentäre Videomodus ist nicht gerade eine Stärke. Immerhin wurden dafür ein Touchscreen, WLAN sowie ein Bildstabilisator integriert.more

Edition 02/2017 - Im Vergleich mit dem Vorgängermodell E-PL7 hat man das Design der PEN E-PL8 etwas verändert, das Gehäuse und der Handgriff wurden angepasst. Der Monitor lässt sich aber weiterhin um 180 Grad klappen und damit optimal für die Aufnahme von Selfies nutzen. Mit 16 Megapixeln werden Fotos aufgenommen, Videos liefert die Kamera in Full HD. Einen Sucher oder einen Blitz besitzt die Kamera nicht, dafür steht ein Zubehörschuh zur Verfügung. Sowohl Sucher als auch Blitz verursachen aber zusätzliche Kosten die bedacht werden müssen.

Kann man mit der Kamera auch gute Fotos ohne Sucher machen bei starken Lichtverhältnissen?
Auch wenn ich Brillenträger bin, ist der Sucher zu empfehlen oder werde ich Ihn vermissen?
