Example text

Full autoexposure: With this option, your digital camera selects the shutter speed and lens opening for you, using built-in algorithms that allow it to make some intelligent guesses about the best combination of settings. For example, on bright days outdoors, the camera probably chooses a short shutter speed and small f-stop to give you the best sharpness. Outdoors in dimmer light, the camera may select a wider lens opening while keeping the shutter speed the same until it “decides” to drop down to a slower speed to keep more of your image in sharp focus.

We’ve lived happily with that nomenclature for more than 75 years, since the first 35mm camera was introduced. Wide-angle and telephoto images are shown in Figure 2-2. Then came the digital camera, and all the simple conventions about focal lengths and magnifications went out the window. For good and valid technical reasons, digital camera sensors do not measure 24mm x 36mm. You wouldn’t want a sensor that large (roughly 1 x 11⁄2 inches) anyway, because the digital camera would have to be large enough to accommodate it.

For example, if your digital camera is one of those Web cams that can capture stills measuring 320 x 200 pixels, or maybe 640 x 480 pixels, you probably don’t have what you need to take serious or semi-serious digital photos. One of those $59 digicams with a lens that can’t be focused, no exposure controls, and no removable storage probably won’t do the job for you either, other than as a fun toy. If you believe the adage, “Any camera is better than no camera,” go ahead and slip one in your pocket and be ready to take a snapshot anytime, anyplace (as long as you have enough light, your subject holds still, and a wallet-sized print will suffice).
