A camera is an optical instrument to capture still images or record moving images, which are stored in a physical medium such as in a digital system or on photographic film.
There are 7 main types of cameras:
1. DSLR cameras
2. Mirrorless cameras
3. Point-and-shoot cameras
4. Bridge cameras
5. Action cameras
6. Compact system cameras
7. Instant camera
A mirror less camera is a type of digital camera that does not have a reflex mirror or optical viewfinder. The term “mirror less” refers to the fact that the image sensor is exposed to light at all times, unlike DSLRs where the image sensor is only exposed when the shutter is open. This means that a mirror less camera can be smaller and lighter than a DSLR, as there are no complex mechanisms needed to move the reflex mirror out of the way when taking a photo.
One downside of mirror less cameras is that they typically have shorter battery life than DSLRs, as they need to power both the image sensor and the electronic viewfinder or rear LCD screen. Another potential downside is that lenses for mirror less cameras are often more expensive than their DSLR counterparts, due to the fact that they need to be designed specifically for use with a particular brand of camera body. However, many photographers feel that these drawbacks are outweighed by the benefits of shooting with a mirror less camera.
The main advantage of shooting with a mirror less camera is that you can see exactly what your photo will look like before you take it. This means that you can compose your shots more carefully and avoid any unwanted surprises once you press the shutter button. Mirrorless cameras also tend to have very fast autofocus systems, meaning you’ll never miss a shot due to slow focus performance. And because there’s no need for a reflex mirror, manufacturers are able to pack more features into smaller bodies – making them ideal for travel photography where every ounce counts!
Action (Adventure) Cameras
Action (Adventure) Cameras are designed to capture high-quality video and photos while in motion. They are rugged and durable, making them ideal for activities like surfing, skiing, skateboarding, and more. Many Action Cameras come with built-in WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities, allowing you to easily share your photos and videos with friends and family.
A 360 camera is a type of camera that captures panoramic images by stitching together multiple images to create a wide-angle, spherical image.
Most 360 cameras have two lenses, which allows them to capture an image in all directions at once. The resulting image is then stitched together using special software to create a single panoramic image.
Some 360 cameras are designed for use with virtual reality headsets, while others can be used to create traditional panoramic photos and videos. There are a variety of different 360 cameras on the market, ranging in price from around $200 to $800.
The 7 classification of camera according to types are: # Compact Cameras # DSLR Cameras # Bridge Cameras # Action Cameras # Mirrorless Cameras # Medium Format Cameras and finally… #360 Camera
Medium Format Cameras
The most common types of medium format cameras are rangefinder cameras, viewfinder cameras, and twin-lens reflex (TLR) cameras. Rangefinder cameras have a separate viewfinder and rangefinder system, while viewfinder cameras have an integrated viewfinder system. TLR cameras have two lenses, one for taking the picture and one for viewing the scene.
Medium format films are available in both negative and positive formats. Negative medium format films are used to create prints, while positive medium format films are used to create slides or transparencies. The most popular types of negative medium format films are 120 film and 220 film. The most popular type of positive medium format film is 4 x 5 inch sheet film.
Digital sensors come in a variety of sizes, but the most common size for a digital sensor is 36 x 24 m m (full frame). Other popular sizes include 44 x 33 m m (APS-C), 50 x 36 m m , 53 x 40 m m , 70 x 56 m m (6xx), 80 x 60 m m (7xx), 100 x 80 m m (8xx), 110 x 88 m m (9xx),and 120 x 100 mm(10xx). Many new DSLRs now offer a crop factor mode which gives you the angle of coverage equivalent to using a smaller sensor size.. This can be useful when trying to maintain compatibility with older lenses or when shooting in low light situations where every millimeter counts towards gathering more light.. When comparing megapixels between different size sensors all else being equal generally speaking the larger the sensor the better quality image it will produce due its ability to gather more light.. However there has been some amazing advances lately in pixel density on smaller sensors allowing them to match or exceed some larger sensors in terms of image quality so don’t discount small DSLRs they pack quite a punch these days..
