Sensors Un-Sensored

The heart of any digital capture system is the image sensor. Incredibly fast-paced improvements in resolution and performance have brought us to a point where the next quantum leap is on the horizon.

CMOS And CCD Digital cameras—smartphone through pro medium-format—use one of two types of image sensors: CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) or CCD (charge-coupled device). Early digital cameras used CCD because it produced better image quality and was easier to make using the technology of the time and, basically, was the only…

Misinformation: Printing Tech

Massive prints don’t always need massive megapixels.
By The Editors
One of the arguments from manufacturers in the great megapixel wars is that to get a larger-than-life print, you need a ton of sensor resolution. While it’s true that the pixel count of the sensor largely will determine the acceptable image and print size, it’s not true that the more…

Misinformation: Camera Tech

It’s as close to a law in photography as anything that photographers interested in producing the best possible black-and-white images should capture in color.
By David Willis
It’s as close to a law in photography as anything that photographers interested in producing the best possible black-and-white images should capture in color. Thanks to digital, shooting in color maintains image information that’s basically thrown away when you capture directly in monochrome or hue modes. Saving this information gives…

Hi-Tech Studio: Workstation To Go

Apple’s new MacBook Pro and LED Cinema Display are a sleeker, faster and greener solution for the fluid studio
By Wes Pitts
In a 24-hour world, work doesn’t wait quietly at the studio. For agile photographers who need consistent software and display performance wherever they are, Apple’s recently introduced MacBook Pro and companion 24-inch LED display make an intriguing combination as a possible do-it-all combination and desktop workstation replacement. The Satellite Is…

Misinformation: Archival Tech

Digital archaeologists may someday need a Rosetta Stone to decipher image files.
By The Staff
Backup strategies are a well-covered topic, and for good reason. From floods to fires to file corruption, there are innumerable ways that a digital file can be destroyed. Thanks to the ease of duplicating dig-ital images, however, circumventing these problems is often as easy as pushing a button. So your…

Stylize Your Images Using Digital Filters

The difference between a technically solid photograph and a real winner that makes clients stop for a closer look is a matter of style
Text And Photography By Richard Lopinto
What makes winning /images win? Apart from the opportunities and advantages that are afforded by huge leaps in digital technology, one point stands out, as always—style! Today’s light-meter technology helps ensure technically correct exposure, but it’s personal insight and style that bring the exposure to a higher level—being aesthetically correct!…
