An active-pixel sensor (APS) is an image sensor where each picture element ("pixel") has a photodetector and an active amplifier.
Advanced Photo System (APS) is a discontinued film format for still photography first produced in 1996.
In optics, an aperture is a hole or an opening through which light travels.
Advanced Photo System type-C (APS-C) is an image sensor format approximately equivalent in size to the Advanced Photo System "classic" negatives of 25.1×16.7 mm, an aspect ratio of 3:2.
An aspheric lens or asphere is a lens whose surface profiles are not portions of a sphere or cylinder.
A camera is an optical instrument for recording or capturing images, which may be stored locally, transmitted to another location, or both.
The Canon PowerShot G is a series of digital cameras released by Canon.
Carl Zeiss, branded as ZEISS, is a German manufacturer of optical systems, industrial measurements and medical devices, founded in Jena, Germany in 1846 by optician Carl Zeiss.
A charge-coupled device (CCD) is a device for the movement of electrical charge, usually from within the device to an area where the charge can be manipulated, for example conversion into a digital value.
CNET (stylized as c|net) is an American media website that publishes reviews, news, articles, blogs, podcasts and videos on technology and consumer electronics globally.
In photography and image processing, color balance is the global adjustment of the intensities of the colors (typically red, green, and blue primary colors).
In optics, particularly as it relates to film and photography, the optical phenomenon known as depth of field (DOF), is the distance about the Plane of Focus (POF) where objects appear acceptably sharp in an image.
A digital camera or digicam is a camera that captures photographs in digital memory.
A digital single-lens reflex camera (also called digital SLR or DSLR) is a digital camera that combines the optics and the mechanisms of a single-lens reflex camera with a digital imaging sensor, as opposed to photographic film.
In optics, dispersion is the phenomenon in which the phase velocity of a wave depends on its frequency.
An electronic viewfinder (EVF) is a camera viewfinder where the image captured by the lens is projected electronically onto a miniature display.
The f-number of an optical system (such as a camera lens) is the ratio of the system's focal length to the diameter of the entrance pupil.
The Four Thirds System is a standard created by Olympus and Eastman Kodak for digital single-lens reflex camera (DSLR) and mirrorless camera design and development.
An image sensor or imaging sensor is a sensor that detects and conveys the information that constitutes an image.
Leica Camera AG is a German company that manufactures cameras, lenses, binoculars, rifle scopes and ophthalmic lenses.
A lens mount is an interface – mechanical and often also electrical – between a photographic camera body and a lens.
A liquid-crystal display (LCD) is a flat-panel display or other electronically modulated optical device that uses the light-modulating properties of liquid crystals.
Live preview is a feature that allows a digital camera's display screen to be used as a viewfinder.
Macro photography (or photomacrography or macrography, and sometimes macrophotography), is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects and living organisms like insects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size (though macrophotography technically refers to the art of making very large photographs).
A mirrorless interchangeable lens camera (MILC) features a single, removable lens and uses a digital display system rather than an optical viewfinder.
A niche market is the subset of the market on which a specific product is focused.
The Nikon Coolpix P90 was launched by Nikon on February 3, 2009 as an improved version of the Nikon Coolpix P80.
Aberration in optics refers to a defect in a lens such that light is not focused to a point, but is spread out over some region of space, and hence an image formed by a lens with aberration is blurred or distorted, with the nature of the distortion depending on the type of aberration.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is a digital superzoom bridge camera by Panasonic.
Parallax is a displacement or difference in the apparent position of an object viewed along two different lines of sight, and is measured by the angle or semi-angle of inclination between those two lines.
A point-and-shoot camera, also known as compact camera, is a still camera designed primarily for simple operation.
A prosumer is a person who consumes and produces a product.
A reflex finder is a viewfinder system with a mirror placed behind a lens.
In photography, a secondary lens is a lens designed to be used in conjunction with another lens, called the primary lens.
In photography, shutter speed or exposure time is the length of time when the film or digital sensor inside the camera is exposed to light, also when a camera's shutter is open when taking a photograph.
A single-lens reflex camera (SLR) is a camera that typically uses a mirror and prism system (hence "reflex" from the mirror's reflection) that permits the photographer to view through the lens and see exactly what will be captured.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 is a digital superzoom bridge camera made by Sony.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is a 20.2 megapixel compact camera, part of the Cyber-shot line of digital cameras made by Sony and announced on 6 June 2012. It was named as the "European Advanced Compact Camera for 2012–2013" by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) and one of the 'Best Inventions of 2012' by ''TIME'' and has been named the best compact camera of all time by Marques Brownlee (Video).
A superzoom or hyperzoom lens is a type of photographic zoom lenses with unconventionally large focal length factors, typically ranging from wide angle to extreme long lens focal lengths in one lens.
In photography and cinematography, a telephoto lens is a specific type of a long-focus lens in which the physical length of the lens is shorter than the focal length.
In photography, a viewfinder is what the photographer looks through to compose, and, in many cases, to focus the picture.
In photography and cinematography, a wide-angle lens refers to a lens whose focal length is substantially smaller than the focal length of a normal lens for a given film plane.
WYSIWYG is an acronym for "what you see is what you get".
A zoom lens is a mechanical assembly of lens elements for which the focal length (and thus angle of view) can be varied, as opposed to a fixed focal length (FFL) lens (see prime lens).
135 is photographic film in a film format used for still photography.
In photography, the 35 mm equivalent focal length is a measure that indicates the angle of view of a particular combination of a camera lens and film or sensor size.
