Digital Negative (DNG) is a patented, open, non-free lossless raw image format written by Adobe used for digital photography.
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.
An electronic viewfinder (EVF) is a camera viewfinder where the image captured by the lens is projected electronically onto a miniature display.
In electronic systems and computing, firmware is a specific class of computer software that provides the low-level control for the device's specific hardware.
In camera design, a focal-plane shutter (FPS) is a type of photographic shutter that is positioned immediately in front of the focal plane of the camera, that is, right in front of the photographic film or image sensor.
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.

Leica Camera AG is a German company that manufactures cameras, lenses, binoculars, rifle scopes and ophthalmic lenses.
The Leica Digilux 1 was released in 2002, roughly the same time as the Canon G2 and the Nikon 2000.
The Digilux 2 is a digital camera model sold by Leica Camera, with the body manufactured in Japan by Matsushita, which sold a variant as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LC1.
The Live MOS sensor is a brand name of an NMOS Image sensor Dpreview used by Panasonic, Olympus and Leica in their Four Thirds System DSLR manufactured since 2006.
Live preview is a feature that allows a digital camera's display screen to be used as a viewfinder.
Lumix is Panasonic's brand of digital cameras, ranging from pocket point-and-shoot models to digital SLRs.
In consumer electronics, the MultiMediaCard (MMC) is a memory-card standard used for solid-state storage.
N-type metal-oxide-semiconductor logic uses n-type field-effect transistors (MOSFETs) to implement logic gates and other digital circuits.
, formerly known as, is a Japanese multinational electronics corporation headquartered in Kadoma, Osaka, Japan.
The Lumix DMC-L1 is Panasonic's first DSLR camera, and was announced in February 2006.
In digital imaging, a pixel, pel, dots, or picture element is a physical point in a raster image, or the smallest addressable element in an all points addressable display device; so it is the smallest controllable element of a picture represented on the screen.
In optics, a Porro prism, named for its inventor Ignazio Porro, is a type of reflection prism used in optical instruments to alter the orientation of an image.
Secure Digital (SD) is a non-volatile memory card format developed by the SD Card Association (SDA) for use in portable devices.
In photography, through-the-lens (TTL) metering refers to a feature of cameras whereby the intensity of light reflected from the scene is measured through the lens; as opposed to using a separate metering window or external hand-held light meter.
In photography, a viewfinder is what the photographer looks through to compose, and, in many cases, to focus the picture.
