Five New Cyber-shot Compact Cameras Released by Sony

Sony  seems to always come up with new discoveries especially in the camera arena. They have now come up with still digital camera with 1080 / 60p cameras with full video HD capacities and not the least it also has a provision to capture 3 D still image captures to add to the already feature rich camera. Unveiling its 5 new compact cameras at the CES 2011 show, the Sony company has been rated number one in the camera arena. These include the world’s first still compact cameras that also support 3 D sweep panoramic imaging.

It has 16.2-megapixel CMOS sensors, 10fps burst shooting as well as capabilities of dual recording that allow one to take shots in still photography as well as videos at the same instance. Alongside the 1920 x 1080 at 60p video capability of DSC-TX100V camera, the new DSC-TX10, DSC-HX7V, DSC-WX10 and DSC-WX9 cameras can record movies in 60i in 1080 AVCHD format. The TX100V is being also the 1st Cyber-shot camera coming from Sony offers a 3.5-inch (8.8cm) OLED touch-screen which promises smooth and fast playback with good, rich color contrasts and deeper blacks in the look of the camera.

This new cyber – shot range is a follow up on the previous models and while there was a still photography facility, this has been enhanced in the latest version. The 3 D technology requires 2 shots of the same and which is in two different modes to give depth to the capture. This makes it 3 D. You can display the images on compatible televisions. Another feature lets you take panoramic shots in one press – and – sweep – motion.

Another feature is the sweep in multi angle mode which enables you to see images on the camera’s 3 inch screen in moving simulated 3 D mode. This camera named ‘Sweep Multi Angle’ allows you to view images  and the shooting feature can capture 15 images with different angles, compiling them in one photo to create the 3 D like effect to display on a larger screen too.

This camera employs 16.2-m.pxl “Exmor-R” back illuminated CMOS technology of sensors which provides excellent dim light performance as well as to 10fps burst of shooting. All the models feature an improved auto mode – which are called the ‘Superior Auto’ and ‘Intelligent Auto’ modes – enabling the new ranges in the Cyber-shot cameras to recognize automatically the correct scene mode, and then very quickly shoot as well as combine up six multi shots to give you images which have greater clarity, and an equal or good dynamic range. It uses backlight correction technology of the HDR and lesser image noise with six-shot multi-layering technology.

One can well see that technology wise, the cameras are superb and are in good stead of procuring many types of users. It therefore, only remains to be seen, if there is anyone else to beat Sony, at the camera game.

8 tips for super vacation snapshots

Digital cameras have given us the liberty to click as many photos as we want without even thinking of the end of the role or the development charges. You can capture every single moment of what you do to make it a memory and preserve it for future. All of us are not photographers or we might not have a born talent of taking great photos but still there is a lot we can keep in mind while taking pictures to make them speak their own story. In this post I will share some tips which one should consider while taking pictures to make your holiday trip a beautiful memory for ever.

Rule of 3: most of the cameras have the feature of displaying a grid on their display screen so that you can better align the object while clicking. If your camera doesn’t have this feature then you can make a virtual grid of 9 squares – 3×3. Keep the focused object in the centre most square to capture what you really want to capture and this is how the autofocus of the camera works. It sharpens the centre most objects and might blur the other background things.

Capture the moment: you are on a vacation and would like to click the beauty of the place you are visiting and not just the photo of the person who is with you. Your photo should be able to tell a story and should be able to speak of itself. If you are clicking your wife’s photo with a beautiful fountain on her left, then do not keep you wife at the centre of the shot. Keep her in the first column of the grid and the fountain should be in the centre spreading towards the last column. This ways you will focus the fountain as the main object which was witnessed by you and your wife.

Select the correct angle: everything is beautiful and awesome where you are but there can be places from where the beauty gets magnified. This is the reason why we have viewing spots in almost all the vacation places where people go to get the best view of what is offered by the nature. Always try getting the correct angle for your photos.

Blur that you don’t want: if you are at a busy place or if it is a place where your subject is getting dimmed by other object nearby then use the blur feature of the camera. This feature helps you in keeping the focus clear only on the subject and blurs the rest of the objects nearby or in the background. This will add life in your photos because this ways you will show what you really want to show and will hide the rest.

Capture the nature: Nature, natural beauty and the wildlife would be something that you will not find back your home once you return from the vacation. Make sure you capture the most of them and that too intelligently to get the best picture.

Be prepared: Better photos need better resolution and better resolution requires high space on the memory. Always carry extra memory cards with you or carry your laptop so that you can transfer the pictures and make the memory free in your camera to capture the forthcoming moments.

Proper Storage: Photographs would be the only physical remembrance of your vacation so let not the camera and photographs in it get spoiled. Carry your camera in a good case and try using a water proof bag for the same to protect it from damage when you keep it on the shore when you swim.

Know your camera: Cameras coming now days are full of features you can play with to take a good shot. There are number of adjustments related to luminescence, exposure, focus and much more. You should know all these to take a great picture especially when you are shooting at night or in the dark.

How Digital Cameras Work

Do you remember the limitations one faced using the old film faced cameras, where in one had a limit of clicking standard 32 images, which could be done only after rolling the camera reel, back to the original state after a photo was clicked. A photographer at an even had to carry dozens of camera rolls with him at an event, and the rate of capturing was also slow.

But with the advent in the technology digital cameras were created which instead of using photo sensitive chemical known as film, used charge coupled device (CCD), an electronics instrument that creates a pixel map based on the electric charge generated when photons slam into a sensitive material. This was the Photo Electric Effect, invented by Albert Einstein and was now utilized in advancing a new league of cameras.

This is how it works:

• In the digital cameras, there are a number of image sensors on the array, which are placed across the microchip of the camera. Every image sensor is a charged-couple device (CCD) converting light into electric charges. In it silicon chips are used fundamentally to measure the light. The charges that are created are stored as analog data that are then converted to digital via a device called an analog to digital converter.

• The chip also contains very small light-sensitive diodes which are in a collective. They are called photosites or pixels. They convert light into electrical charges called electrons. These pixels are light sensitive, so when brighter light strikes them, it produces a greater build up of electrical charges. Thousand such array receptors create one pixel, and every pixel corresponds to some information stored.

• The light enters the digital camera via the lens, same as it is in the conventional analog camera. When this light hits the disc the shutter opens and thereby illuminates every pixel, however with various intensities. Each pixel is combined after the computing on the microchip where the stored information is gathered and an image is created. This created image is transferred to memory cards of the Digital Cameras. The memory cards can be of varied memories ranging from 512 Mega Bytes to unprecedented limit of 16 Giga Bytes.

• A cameras resolution is rated in mega pixels, which are in turn the pixels of data gathered by the lens on the microchip. More the number of pixels more are the resolution. With the increase the mega pixel number the price of the camera also ascends vertically. But you don’t need to worry as cameras of good resolution come in economical range and are viable for good prints. The digital cameras have allowed the users to no need to go and get each roll published and then creating an album which utilizes space and get affected by natural conditions too. Now they are in digital formats and stored on your hard disk or even uploaded on internet.

The digital cameras with increased memory life and increased memory have increased the range of its usage, and made it more viable and economical for a common man to buy it and use it efficiently.
