A Bayer filter mosaic is a color filter array (CFA) for arranging RGB color filters on a square grid of photosensors.
A beam splitter is an optical device that splits a beam of light in two.
Binoculars or field glasses are two telescopes mounted side-by-side and aligned to point in the same direction, allowing the viewer to use both eyes (binocular vision) when viewing distant objects.
A camera is an optical instrument for recording or capturing images, which may be stored locally, transmitted to another location, or both.
A camera lens (also known as photographic lens or photographic objective) is an optical lens or assembly of lenses used in conjunction with a camera body and mechanism to make images of objects either on photographic film or on other media capable of storing an image chemically or electronically.
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.
A dichroic filter, thin-film filter, or interference filter is a very accurate color filter used to selectively pass light of a small range of colors while reflecting other colors.
In optics, a dispersive prism is an optical prism, usually having the shape of a geometrical triangular prism, used as a spectroscopic component.
Image quality (often Image Quality Assessment, IQA) is a characteristic of an image that measures the perceived image degradation (typically, compared to an ideal or perfect image).
An image sensor or imaging sensor is a sensor that detects and conveys the information that constitutes an image.
An optical filter is a device that selectively transmits light of different wavelengths, usually implemented as a glass plane or plastic device in the optical path, which are either dyed in the bulk or have interference coatings.
In optics, a prism is a transparent optical element with flat, polished surfaces that refract light.
A professional video camera (often called a television camera even though the use has spread beyond television) is a high-end device for creating electronic moving images (as opposed to a movie camera, that earlier recorded the images on film).
A prosumer is a person who consumes and produces a product.
Refraction is the change in direction of wave propagation due to a change in its transmission medium.
Rolling shutter is a method of image capture in which a still picture (in a still camera) or each frame of a video (in a video camera) is captured not by taking a snapshot of the entire scene at a single instant in time but rather by scanning across the scene rapidly, either vertically or horizontally.
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.
A still camera is a type of camera used to take photographs.
Telecine is the process of transferring motion picture film into video and is performed in a color suite.
Thin-film optics is the branch of optics that deals with very thin structured layers of different materials.
In electronics, a vacuum tube, an electron tube, or just a tube (North America), or valve (Britain and some other regions) is a device that controls electric current between electrodes in an evacuated container.
A video camera is a camera used for electronic motion picture acquisition (as opposed to a movie camera, which records images on film), initially developed for the television industry but now common in other applications as well.
