It is correct to consider the light reflected a form of illuminance, but the term is usually used in the context of how much light energy is falling on a sensor in Lux, lumens or foot candles. Luminance is a measure of the intensity of something that is a brightness component of a scene. Another way to look at this in real life is the CIELAB color space. ...

A standard kit is what typically is sold along with a body in kit offerings. The EF 50mm 1.8 (the old one) used to be a standard kit lens too - ages ago.

Let me start by saying that the term "true resolution" has no set meaning. It is a term that Snapsort uses to try and simplify the meaningful detail a camera can capture. Resolution, at its most basic, is the level of granularity of detail that a camera can capture. You could have a 200 mega pixel camera, but if the image was out of focus and you only ...

They are simplifying a much more complex world. your true resolution will be a product of lens and sensor. but the lens resolution (lp/mm) will depend on its settings as well as its quality. so to do those conversions they need to make a lot of assumptions. To spread light on the complexity of resolution: First of all, MP is not a measure of resolution. It ...

Let's start with resolution, which is not the same as the sensor pixel density which is usually called resolution. To get the actual resolution of a camera and lens combination, you would photograph a resolution chart, and use the resulting image to determine how many lines can be reproduced. You would measure the resolution for primary horizontal, vertical ...

"True resolution" is a term that this particular site (snapsort.com) has made up in an attempt to account for the fact that pixel size and density play a factor as well. You can check out their whole page about it here. There is no industry standard term called 'true resolution'. They're calculating it based on the size of the Airy disk, given a maximum ...

To clarify, while there is a standard range of focal ranges (in between wide and telephoto) that isn't generally what the standard in standard kit lens refers to (though they are generally in the standard range. Rather, when some cameras come with multiple possible kits, the standard kit lens is the cheaper one. This is similar to how some features come ...

A standard kit lens is just a kit lens. However, for some models there can be different kits available. The standard kit lens will be a 18-55mm but additionally a 18-105mm kit also exists.

The standard kit lens is just another word for the kit lens. Certain cameras may come in a kit with a lens and sometimes there are more than one kit available with different lenses but if they are manufacturer bundles, then the lenses are known as standard kit lenses.

From the two photos you shared, I can claim that you are interested in macro photography. Macro gives you the opportunity to take a photo of an object far closer than a close up. There are some subclasses, such as the already mentioned here. But in general the main category is macro. Macro can achieved with macro lenses, like Canon 100mm 2.8. Don't confuse ...

I think what you are looking for is "High Speed Photo" Below are some examples which resembles with your example photos. http://photography.tutsplus.com/articles/freezing-time-80-inspiring-examples-of-high-speed-photography--photo-340

The hard light produces deep shadows, often not desirable. You can search photos taken during midday. You are likely to see the deep shadows appearing then. Harsh light is bad especially for portraits and landscapes. The light is harsh, resulting in low contrast scenes. If the hard light comes from the front, your portrait will have harsh look, many details, ...

DMC is just a model code used by Panasonic for their "Lumix" cameras. It doesn't have a technical meaning other than appearing as part of their internal product codes on all Lumix cameras. You may speculate about what the letters stand for and Panasonic may even tell you what they stand for, but it's a meaning that's not technical, but just part of the way ...

Given that Panasonic applies these to digital cameras, I believe that's an acronym for a "Digital Media Camera" designation. I'll base that on their electric shaver models starting with an ES.

DMC stands for "Digital Media Camera" although a panasonic dealer told me it means "Digital Still Camera"

A color model is a method of describing a color. For example with Red, Green and Blue (RGB) elements or with Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black (CMYK). A color space is the set of colors which can be displayed or reproduced in a medium (whether stored, printed or displayed). For example, sRGB is a particular set of intensities for red, green and blue and ...

Another way to add to Hermann's excellent answer would be that when the term color model is used it is used in it's mathematical form, and when the term color space is used it is usually used in the context of data that has had the color model applied to it and thus inhabits that color space. There is no accurate term "true color" in the context of ...

A color model is the mathematical (or computer science) way of describing colors. It is independent from physical devices. RGB-8 or RGB-16 are color models as well as CYMK or HSL. A color space is the method of mapping real colors to the color model's discrete values. sRGB and AdobRGB are color spaces that both use RGB as model. But in one the color ...

Along other expressions like unsharp mask etc. they are used in the digital environment in an analogus way to their classic usage. Most common is "pushing" by correcting to the plus, preferrably while "developing" (another of these expressions) a jpeg or tiff out of a raw. Correction to the minus corresponds to "pulling".

The terms push and pull are still relevant in the sense that they are still used and understood by many enthusiast photographers. But they are probably not as common as they once were. New terms, such as expose to the right describe the same concept using different words. If you underexpose when taking the shot, then you push the exposure in editing to ...

Some people call it Boudoir Photography.
