Mode dial

Index Mode dial

A mode dial or camera dial is a dial used on digital cameras to change the camera's mode. [1]

In optics, an aperture is a hole or an opening through which light travels.

Aperture priority

Aperture priority, often abbreviated A or Av (for aperture value) on a camera mode dial, is a setting on some cameras that allows the user to set a specific aperture value (f-number) while the camera selects a shutter speed to match it that will result in proper exposure based on the lighting conditions as measured by the camera's light meter.

Bridge camera

Bridge cameras are cameras that fill the niche between the single-lens reflex cameras (SLRs) and the point-and-shoot camera.

Color balance

In photography and image processing, color balance is the global adjustment of the intensities of the colors (typically red, green, and blue primary colors).

Depth of field

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.

Digital camera

A digital camera or digicam is a camera that captures photographs in digital memory.

Digital camera modes

Most digital cameras support the ability to choose among a number of configurations, or modes, for use in various situations.

Digital single-lens reflex camera

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.

Exposure (photography)

In photography, exposure is the amount of light per unit area (the image plane illuminance times the exposure time) reaching a photographic film or electronic image sensor, as determined by shutter speed, lens aperture and scene luminance.

Flash (photography)

A flash is a device used in photography producing a flash of artificial light (typically 1/1000 to 1/200 of a second) at a color temperature of about 5500 K to help illuminate a scene.

Focus (optics)

In geometrical optics, a focus, also called an image point, is the point where light rays originating from a point on the object converge.

Light meter

A light meter is a device used to measure the amount of light.

Menu (computing)

In computing and telecommunications, a menu is a list of options or commands presented to the user of a computer or communications system.

Point-and-shoot camera

A point-and-shoot camera, also known as compact camera, is a still camera designed primarily for simple operation.

Shutter priority

Shutter priority refers to a setting on some cameras that allows the user to choose a specific shutter speed while the camera adjusts the aperture to ensure correct exposure.

Shutter speed

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.
