The majority of compact as well as some DSLR cameras have a 4: For cameras using single-chip image sensors the number claimed is the total number of single-color-sensitive photosensors, whether they have different locations in the plane, as with the Bayer sensoror in stacks of three co-located photosensors as in the Foveon X3 sensor.
However, the images have different numbers of RGB pixels: Bayer-sensor cameras produce as many RGB pixels as photosensors via demosaicing interpolationwhile Foveon sensors produce uninterpolated image files with one-third as many RGB pixels as photosensors.
Comparisons of megapixel ratings of these two types of sensors are sometimes a subject of dispute. A measure of the comparative increase in linear resolution is the square root of the increase in area resolution, i.
Dynamic range[ edit ] Practical imaging systems both digital and film, have a limited " dynamic range ": Highlights of the subject that are too bright are rendered as white, with no detail; shadows that are too dark are rendered as black.
The loss of detail is not abrupt with film, or in dark shadows with digital sensors: And as the sensor elements for different colors saturate in turn, there can be gross hue or saturation shift in burnt-out highlights.
Some digital cameras can show these blown highlights in the image review, allowing the photographer to re-shoot the picture with a modified exposure.
Others compensate for the total contrast of a scene by selectively exposing darker pixels longer. The image sensor contains additional photodiodes of lower sensitivity than the main ones; these retain detail in parts of the image too bright for the main sensor.
High dynamic range imaging HDR addresses this problem by increasing the dynamic range of images by either increasing the dynamic range of the image sensor or by using exposure bracketing and post-processing the separate images to create a single image with a higher dynamic range.
HDR images curtail burn-outs and black-outs.
Storage[ edit ] Many camera phones and most digital cameras use memory cards having flash memory to store image data. XQD card format was the last new form of card, targeted at high-definition camcorders and high-resolution digital photo cameras.
Most modern digital cameras also use internal memory for a limited capacity for pictures that can be transferred to or from the card or through the camera's connections; even without a memory card inserted into the camera.
Memory cards can hold vast numbers of photos, requiring attention only when the memory card is full. For most users, this means hundreds of quality photos stored on the same memory card.
Images may be transferred to other media for archival or personal use. Cards with high speed and capacity are suited to video and burst mode capture several photographs in a quick succession.
Because photographers rely on the integrity of image files, it is important to take proper care of memory cards. Common advocacy calls for formatting of the cards after transferring the images onto a computer. However, since all cameras only do quick formatting of cards, it is advisable to carry out a more thorough formatting using appropriate software on a PC once in a while.
Effectively, this involves scanning of the cards to search for possible errors. At the same time, many discount stores with photo labs introduced a "digital front end", allowing consumers to obtain true chemical prints as opposed to ink-jet prints in an hour. These prices were similar to those of prints made from film negatives.
Some photofinishers have started offering prints with the same aspect ratio as the digital cameras record.The Online Writing Lab (OWL) at Purdue University houses writing resources and instructional material, and we provide these as a free service of the Writing Lab at Purdue.
