This not a thing that can happen. Cameras just don't work that way. For that matter, light doesn't work that way. Specifically, for digital cameras: every "photosite" — each individual pixel-level sensor — is just a counter of photons. It doesn't have any sense of the wavelength of the light received, and correspondingly no perception of color. In order to ...


Things to consider when thinking of purchasing your first dSLR. 1. Can I afford a dSLR? If you've never used an interchangeable lens camera system before, realize that the cost is astronomical in comparison with fixed-lens cameras, because the camera body itself is just the start of your purchases and the basis of your system. It is also (weirdly) the most ...


You are comparing two lenses in different price ranges. Some of the price difference naturally comes from the focus motor, but most of it comes from the more expensive one having: Vibration Reduction (VR) More advanced optics (17 lens elements compared to 13) Extra-low Dispersion glass (ED) Internal Focusing (IF) There are certainly cheaper lenses with ...


The problem with putting something between the lens and the camera is that you've moved the lens farther away from the sensor than it was designed to be. If your attachment doesn't have any optics in it, you've basically added an extension tube, and the lens will only be able to focus at close distances (possibly very close distances, like macro ...


Learn (if you don't know already) C/C++ - it is THE language for embedded systems (no, I don't like it, but this is the way it is) Learn how a (dSLR) camera works as a machine. Of course, you need to buy one - highly recommended a Canon (recommended 5D Mk2 or, better, 5D Mk3) because of the latest point in my list. Learn to be a photographer - learn his/her ...


First ask the lecturer/course co-ordinator! After that, assuming your course suggests/requires a DSLR: I'd recommmend that you physically handle the various options and find something that feels good to you (comfortable etc.) Don't spend too much money on a camera body and neglect the lenses, rather spend more on good lenses than the body. You may ...


Take a Computational Photography or "Computer Vision" course, or read a book, and see in which of its subfields you can contribute to the greater good, earn money and have fun. There are also cameras forming parts of other systems, e.g. on microscopes, on assembly lines , on satellites; and software for these devices needs to be written, but this is not ...
