I think that a photograph to be classified as fine art must awaken a deep emotion in the heart and mind of the observer. It must move us. The emotion could be love, pity, tenderness, joy, admiration, awe, etc. Or the emotion could be contempt,hatred, fear,indignation etc. The deeper the emotion or the impact that the image awakens in the observer the ...


Matt Grum's answer is the golden ticket answer. That rule of thumb method will work most of the time, but eyes work differently to photographs, and sometimes our eyes adapt to the light and we can't make out the shadows as definitely as they would be represented in a photograph. Here are a couple more tangible approaches that I use. For digital photography ...


I can give you the easist way to findout what is Mega Pixel and how many pixels is 1 Mega Pixel. It is calculated by tha same way how the Memory unit is calculated.. 1000 Bytes are 1 KiloByte 1000 KiloBytes are 1 MegaByte (1 Million Bites) So we can simply calculate it by this way 1000 Pixels are 1 KiloPixel (The word KiloPixel is not officially used, I've ...


DMC= Digital Mirrorless Camera


Sharpness and "crispness" are related, but they're not identical (at least in the language of critique). Sharpness is an evaluation of how well the detail in the image is recorded; crispness is about how well that detail is conveyed to the viewer. A crisp image will be sharp (mostly, that is, where sharpness counts), but it will also necessarily have a ...


The adjective crisp simply refers to the sharpness of a photo. It is commonly used in a chain of adjectives to convey additional emphasis. Depending on the audience and regional dialects, you may also find that it can mean something completely different even in a photography context. I believe this ties into your comment that the term resonates with ...


I have a couple of ancient 35mm. cameras which have what I believe to be "normal lenses". One is a Voiglander CLR rangefinder with a fixed 50 mm 2.8 and the other is a Nikkormat FTN SLR with a 50mm 1.4. With those old cameras, when I brought the veiwfinder up to my right eye, I could keep my left eye open and everything would be brought into focus without ...


TTL stands for Through The Lens, and in the case of SLR metering, it indicates how the light is measured--that it's the light coming through the taking lens, rather than, say, an exterior sensor. In flash metering terminology, a TTL system in the camera/flash combination typically means that the camera will tell the flahs to send out a small "preflash" ...


For my camera, it lists the true megapixel number as the same as the actual megapixel number, so I don't think we should make too much of this number. The site also lists sensor size and pixel size. You can calculate the pixel size also by dividing the sensor area by the megapixel number. If you tak the square root of this number, you get the pixel size as ...


Simply you can process a 4mp image using photoshop and upscale it to 8mp image. Then there will be duplicated pixels , but theoretically it's an 8mp image now. I believe snapsort's "true resolution" means an image's actual pixel resolution without having such duplicated pixels.


A lot of the other answers made this unnecessarily complex and talked about things irrelevant to the OP, so let me try to be clearer: Many people think that a higher megapixel camera produces sharper photos. However, for a given sensor size, there's a limit on how many megapixels of actual information can be captured. Exceeding that limit doesn't help. If ...
