Sony A55 with Translucent Mirror Technology

Each time more and more digital cameras are produced by manufacturers with a variety of advantages and latest technology. Sony is one of the many camera manufacturers produces a rich variety of cameras, both compact cameras and DSLR cameras. DSLR is Digital Single Lens Reflector, means that the object that will be in the photo will be seen directly in the viewfinder through the reflection of the glass, so that what was seen to be captured by the sensor. At the moment the shutter button is pressed, the mirror reflection will be lifted and the resulting light received through the lens will be directly captured by a camera sensor that can be processed into a digital photo.

Sony does not cease to innovate to develop new technologies for digital cameras, one of the most recent discoveries that have been applied to the Sony A55 camera is the "Translucent Mirror Technology ™ ', yes .. with the symbols TM (trademark) because the technology is invented and patented by Sony Corporation. What are the advantages of this technology? What's the difference with regular DSLR camera?

The fundamental difference between the Translucent Mirror Technology when compared to the DSLR in general is the absence of reflection glass that will open up when the shutter button is pressed, and was replaced by Translucent glass that will miss the light received from the lens directly into the sensor and autofocus camera. This will obviously speed up the process of image storage and autofocus can work right away at any moment the image is saved. At least with this new technology, there is no mechanical movement (up and down the glass) that occurs at the instant the shutter is pressed. The loss of mechanical movement will certainly prevent the user from the camera shutter count problem that is often feared by DSLR users.

With this technology, then the speed burst shooting Sony A55 camera to be very fast, reaching 10fps (10 times for each second shots and precise autofocus each catapult), continuous autofocus is also true when the video mode that can record up to full HD . Sensors on the A55 camera is the "16,2 Megapixel HD CMOS APS Exmor Sensor". For other features in this camera meets the criteria for a decent camera to use, such as Auto HDR, up to a maximum of ISO 12800, 3-inch LCD, Full Live View, and is equipped with a panoramic 3D technology.

Pocket camera with 3D technology

Many movies today are made with 3D technology, so that when we watch it with the help of certain glasses, the picture becomes very real. The workings of the basis for the movie in 3-dimensional display is to give the difference to the right and left eye. Therefore we need special glasses to maximize the results of a 3D movie. 3D glasses usually have 2 different colors for the left and right.

If you liked the movie with 3D technology, it currently has issued a Fuji Film camera for the first time in the world using two lenses to take photos or videos. Camera Fuji FinePix Real 3D W3 possessed two lenses on the left and right so as to record images in 3dimensi, because a different perspective from the left and right lenses. 2 lenses, the camera has two sensors for each lens.

One of the highlights of this camera is the availability of two options to capture images or video, that is with the technology standard 2D or 3D technology to offer this camera. To make the process of capturing, simply select the 2D or 3D. In this camera you do not have to worry about going wrong choice, because at kemera Fuji FinePix Real 3D W3 will appear clearly on the LCD screen 2D or 3D text that we selected earlier, so that we can realize that we use record mode.

To view the results of HD resolution video recording in 3D format, we can directly connect this camera to a television screen we used a mini HDMI cable, so images and sound can be directly out on the television screen. But the 3D image will appear blurred on television, because we have to use special glasses that are included on this camera when purchasing. But if we want to see without glasses, 3-dimensional display will look best when at play directly in the camera via a 3.5-inch screen of this camera, because the LCD is equipped with a 3D LCD monitor "Parallax Barrier System", so as to divide the color and light to the eye right and left for a 3D effect.

As with other compact cameras, the Fuji FinePix Real 3D W3 is very compact shape weighing not more than 230g, convenient to carry around in everyday usage. Has complete facilities such as 3X optical zoom, anti-vibration, macro, wide lens, a voice recording.

How to choose a digital camera ?

Digital camera with complete accessories are items that must be owned by people who frequently travel or professional photographers. The digital camera is a device that is always ready to help you capture important moments in every vacation trip even your daily life. There are many types of digital cameras available in the market to choose from. There are several things you should consider in choosing a digital camera so you can get the goods to suit your needs:

Brand Cameras

There was no denying that the brand is very important in choosing a camera. The price of a camera is usually depending on the brand. There are so many brands of cameras on the market, each has advantages and disadvantages. Some of them have been around for a long time and is a leader in the market such as Nikon, Canon, Olympus, Sony, Pentax, etc.. Find information about the brand and specifications of the camera via the camera manufacturer brochure or website. See the match you needs with the budget you have.

Type of lens

The lens is a very important part in a camera, no camera lens is useless because the principle photography is drawing with light. So lenses that capture light and focus it so that it becomes an image. There are many types of lenses in the market. Lens on an SLR camera is usually a separate section with the camera body. Unlike the pocket camera which integrates with the body of the camera lens. Choose a camera with a quality lens types.

Camera Sensor

The sensor on the camera is an important part that serves to capture the object and recording into a digital image. The existence of sensors on digital cameras is very important. If the sensor deer then you can no longer call it a "camera".

Ancient times, when technology has not advanced and not yet introduced the idea of ​​a digital camera, light-sensitive film is used in a camera. The drawback of this technique is the object images are stored permanently and once just a piece of film exposed to light then you no longer can use it to take a different picture. However, in the era of digital cameras, and technology has changed the rules. It has now been much different, light-sensitive film has been completely replaced by the sensor. This sensor also acts as sensitive film but with the advantages of reusable without having to be replaced.

   
Optical Zoom not Digital Zoom

Lots of people are confused in distinguishing between optical zoom and digital zoom. Optical zoom is zoom technology that "real" or it can be said is that the actual zoom owned by a digital camera. Both are the work of the camera lens and not the camera body. With optical zoom, the motor in the camera lens actually moves in and out to give the necessary magnification.

Digital zoom on the other hand is the actual function is not required for each user of the camera. Digital zoom is the work of the camera body instead of the camera's lens. What is done by extending the digital zoom only the pixels of your photo while looking through your camera's LCD panel. This is actually not really zoom (magnification) of any kind. But that just makes you feel that you are closer to the object image. You will only get low-quality photos when using it for professional photography techniques. So the important thing is the optical zoom rather than digital zoom because the higher the optical zoom, then the price is more expensive, please choose to suit your needs.

Number of Pixels

Have you heard your colleague say that he has a megapixel camera with a bigger than you, and he confidently said that the camera will have more sophisticated and better picture quality? whether this is true? Of course not. Megapixel myth has prevailed so long in the digital camera market. And indeed, the camera manufacturers have exploited this myth through various promotions so that people assume that a higher megapixel camera will mean better quality.

High pixel size does not mean that your camera better. If I have an 8-megapixel digital SLR camera, It's will be able to take photos remotely superior than ordinary pocket-sized camera 12 megapixels. Why? Because it all depends on the sensor lens in the camera and not the number of megapixels. Megapixel camera will only work only if you plan to print your photos a paper photo. If you are an amateur photographer who uses a camera just to take photos and view them on your computer or upload to the internet, then a 4-megapixel camera is more than enough for you.

The size of megapixels is not the main requirement in determining image quality. Megapixel count can only determine how big you can print your photos or in other words his photo paper sizes can be larger if the greater megapixel camera. However, the pixel size should you consider before buying a digital camera.

Accessories

Digital camera accessories are things you should consider when you buy a camera. Is available in the market? matched with the camera you buy? Camera accessories include memory cards, camera cleaning, camera bags, tripods, and others. Lots of accessories are available with a digital camera already exists in it as a promotional offer from a camera store or vendor. Select accessories according to the specifications of your camera. Accessories needed to support and enhance the ability of a camera at the time of use.

Why Mini Camera ?


This is my first post on this blog about the Mini Camera. Many people buy a camera but do not know how to leverage and optimize their digital camera. Photograph is a universal language it's can tell anyone, it can speak more than a thousand words. A photograph can tell of events, events and history of human civilization. The beauty of an object can be immortalized by a photograph and the tools to do that is the Camera. The concept of photograph is to draw using light, this light that would focus the object with the aid of a camera lens.

Digital pocket camera is very practical to carry everywhere and maybe that's what causes the market segment is quite large compared to other types of digital cameras.
In addition easy to bring anywhere, a digital pocket camera offers decent photo quality results, and certainly cheaper than a digital SLR camera.

How long zoom lens on your pocket camera? Three, four, or five times optical zoom? Do you feel your camera's telephoto capability is still lacking? Imagine if you have a small pocket camera but has a long lens. Because of modern lens manufacturing capabilities, now a pocket camera could have a very flexible lens is capable of reaching a wide area (about 28mm) to telephoto extra (above 300mm) or practically superzoom lens (10X optical zoom, and even more).

At first, compact cameras have a zoom lens that is generally very standard, ranging from 35-105mm (equivalent to 3x optical zoom). To move away from the pressures of an increasingly sophisticated camera phones, camera manufacturers gradually began to increase in both the affairs of the wide range of up to telephoto, until the beginning there is a camera that is able to reach for example 35-200mm (equivalent to a 5x optical zoom) and some even have 28-200mm lens (equivalent to 7x optical zoom). With the increasingly wide range of focal lens pocket camera will enable the wearer to play a variety of composition and perspective, from wideangle to telephoto.
