European Travel Compact Camera 2011-2012 - Casio EXILIM EX-ZR100 | EISA - The European Imaging and Sound AssociationIt is a combination of exceptional lens quality, great build and a revolutionary new sensor design that makes the Fujifilm X-Pro1 such a successful camera. The X-Trans sensor, with its more film-like colour filter layout over the pixels, really makes the most of the resolution delivered by the camera’s Fujinon optics to produce images with far more detail than most 16-million-pixel models can manage. The hybrid viewfinder offers the photographer the best of both digital and traditional optical worlds, and the straightforward layout of controls on the body makes the X-Pro1 simple and pleasurable to use, even if the AF system is not the fastest on the market. Although it isn’t the smallest compact system camera on the market, its size is more than compensated for by the quality of the images it produces and the enjoyment it brings to the user. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
A collection of lenses a DSLR owner might have. These are three Olympus zooms (40-150 mm, 11-22 mm and 14-54 mm) and a Sigma prime (30 mm), all for the Four Thirds System . This article is about photographic lenses for single-lens reflex film cameras (SLRs) and digital single-lens reflex cameras (DSLRs) . Furthermore, the emphasis is on modern lenses for 35 mm film SLRs and for DSLRs with sensor sizes less than or equal to 35 mm (" full-frame "). [ edit ] Interchangeable lenses
This is an annotated list of lenses and lens accessories available for the Olympus E-System and, in general, Four Thirds cameras. Introduction Upon introduction of the E-1 back in 2003, Olympus faced an ambitious task of coming up with not just the first digital, interchangeable-lens SLR designed from ground up as such (and not adapted from a film model), but also with a variety of lenses, designed to work well (mechanically, electronically, and optically) with the new body, and addressed at various layers of the market.
One way to express the performance of a lens is the MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) curve, which represents the degree to which a lens is capable of faithful reproduction of lines with a width of 1 mm (spatial frequency response). MTF is measured based on the contrasts of the lowest and highest frequencies emitted from the subject in order to estimate the resolution and clearness of the lens. The diagram below is the MTF graph of the ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 150mm (equivalent to 300mm on a 35mm film camera), a highly rated high-performance compact super-telescopic lens. The MTF graph shows that the resolved spatial frequencies (both the low- and high-ends) are high and that both high clarity and high resolution are balanced at a high level.

Fogging Certain cameras or lenses may exhibit some fogging, or image areas with extra exposure (for example, a bright central spot seen with many Canon lenses). This may be due to light scattered from inner surfaces of the lens, or to some peculiarities of anti-reflective lens coating which was not really designed for infrared. Sometimes the blackness of internal surfaces of the lens tube or mirror chamber may be "not black enough" in infrared. (I experienced the last effect a few years ago with an Olympus E-10, where the extreme 15% or so of many frames was ghosted.)

Macro photography is one of the most interesting types of photography, as it lets you show detail that is otherwise not easily seen by the naked eye. A true macro lens—Nikon's designation is Micro-NIKKOR—allows you to you take photographs that are 1:2 or 1:1 reproduction, which is ½ life size to life size respectively without the need for any additional accessories. A picture is described as life size when the image size is equal to the subject size. At their closest focusing distances, most lenses provide approximately 3.2 to 5X—hardly enough to fill the frame with really small subjects.

When I give these tips, just imagine a Michael-Weston-voiceover. Sometimes, when you’re out shooting, it’s best to plan to improvise.
The year 2009 will surely be remembered by photographers as that which finally saw the long-overdue arrival of the large-sensor compact system camera.
There is a school of thought that says the more of you shoot the better the chances of getting a good set of photographs. Hobbyist photographer Juha Haataja proves how true this is.
●Angle of view and focal length The angle of view represents the subject range that can be imaged with the image sensor, and is expressed in degrees.
