MichaelT posted an answer to the question "What limits the size of digital imaging sensors?" which included this illustration of why increasing the size of the sensor leads to an increase of wasted ...
I've read some information about sensor sizes here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image_sensor_format according to this, the 35mm ff-CMOS is the sensor with the largest dimensions used in digital ...
I keep reading articles about CCD vs CMOS image sensors. What is the difference between these two types? What exactly do these sensors do in terms of photography? Is a CCD-based camera going to be ...
To be more precise, let's say we are taking a W&B photograph. Picture 1 : And let's say we take it once with a 1/1000 shutter speed, so that the values for R/G/B range from 0 to MAXVALUE / 2 ...
How common are hot pixels on new cameras?! I read that people may check up to 5 cameras at stores to actually find a perfect one, is this true? so how commons is this? what is the chance of getting a ...
This answer to the question about how ISO is implemented in digital cameras seems to imply that each photosite (i.e., pixel) can have its ISO set independently. If this is true, then I would think ...
The iPhone 4s uses a backlit CMOS sensor, and I have noticed that some other point and shoot cameras do as well. What does that mean for photography, and if it is a benefit why do DSLR cameras not use ...
I tried to convert my Nikon D70 into IR, and after replacing the filter and reassembling the camera, I am unable to take any new pictures. I am able to see pictures that were previously present on the ...
I read on two different sites that pixel mapping should be done once or twice a year. But sometimes I end up doing it once a month. Will it have adverse effect on the CMOS image sensor?
I'm working on a cmos image sensor that has a electronic rolling shutter, at this time I'm operating at 15fps and getting RAW data from it. I was wondering how to combine a xenon flash with the ...
