Pentax was the first manufacturer to show an early prototype 35 mm behind-the-lens metering SLR camera, which was named the Pentax Spotmatic. The camera was shown at the 1960 photokina show. However, the first Through-the-lens (TTL) light metering SLR on the market was the 1963 Topcon RE Super, which had the CdS metering cell placed behind the reflex mirror. The mirror had narrow slits cut into the surface to let the light reach the cell providing average metering. Late in the following year, a production model of the Pentax Spotmatic was shown whose CdS light meter cells were on the pentaprism, reading the light off the focusing screen providing average reading, yet keeping the Spotmatic name, but now written in one word. Another clever design appeared in 1965, the Canon Pellix employing a pellicle mirror that is semi-transparent, placing the meter cell on an arm swinging into the lightpass behind the mirror for meter reading.

Many industrial applications require a wide field of view. Traditionally maintaining consistent light over large 2D areas is quite difficult. With a line scan camera all that is necessary is to provide even illumination across the “line” currently being viewed by the camera. This makes possible sharp pictures of objects that pass the camera at high speed.
For decades, the DSLR (digital SLR) has been the top choice for anyone who wants to take their photography to the next level. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, a DSLR offers three key ingredients: manual controls, excellent picture quality and interchangeable lenses.

The earliest cameras produced in significant numbers used sensitised glass plates were plate cameras. Light entered a lens mounted on a lens board which was separated from the plate by an extendible bellows.There were simple box cameras for glass plates but also single-lens reflex cameras with interchangeable lenses and even for color photography (Autochrome Lumière). Many of these cameras had controls to raise or lower the lens and to tilt it forwards or backwards to control perspective.
In August 2010 Sony released series of DSLRs allowing 3D photography. It was accomplished by sweeping the camera horizontally or vertically in Sweep Panorama 3D mode. The picture could be saved as ultra-wide panoramic image or as 16:9 3D photography to be viewed on BRAVIA 3D television set.

The smallest (and usually cheapest) of all cameras, compact cameras can usually be stuffed easily into your pocket, and can cost as little as $50. Also known as point-and-shoot cameras, they will often have limited features and are best for impromptu photo shoots where you don’t have your smartphone handy. After testing 10 cameras that cost less than $160, the Sony W800 came out on top for its price and performance.

Pentax K-mount lenses designed for APS-C DSLRs can also be mounted on it, although this does incur a drop in resolution to 15.4 megapixels.

Autofocus point On some cameras, the selection of a point in the imaging frame upon which the auto-focus system will attempt to focus. Many Single-lens reflex cameras (SLR) feature multiple auto-focus points in the viewfinder.
DSLR cameras are not cheap, they’re expensive. And while spending that much amount, it’s always better to pick a DSLR camera from a reputed brand such as Nikon, Canon, Fujifilm or Sony. The Nikon DSLR cameras boast of user-friendliness, while Canon boasts of brilliant colour clarity, Fujifilm is known for enhanced image quality and Sony is known for its adaptability features.
Lens mount: All of the DSLR manufacturers have their own proprietary lens-mount system. For Nikon this is the F-mount, for Canon it’s the EF-mount, and for Pentax its the K-mount. If you’re buying your first DSLR then it definitely pays to think ahead about lenses. This is because you’re effectively buying into a system, and once you’re in, you’re committed to that system. Specialist adapters that let you mount Canon lenses on Nikon bodies (and vice versa) are available, but they can be expensive and largely impractical.

Yes, that’s a 65x optical zoom on the front of the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS. Covering a focal range equivalent to 21-1365mm in 35mm equivalent terms, you could look up at the night sky with this against your eye and half expect to catch a glimpse of the Rosetta space probe.
They’re more than adequate to get started, but the key advantage of DSLRs over compact cameras is that you can add to your kit with additional lenses. For example, wide-angle and telephoto zoom lenses, a flashgun, and other accessories, to make the most of whatever types of photography you’re into.
The New York Times claimed that the Gaza Strip “has been racked by shortages of medicine and water after years of a blockade by Israel and Egypt.” In fact, the West Bank-based Palestinian government is responsible for a scarcity in medicine, and overpumping from Gaza’s aquifer has degraded the territory’s water supply.
In bright sun, the quality difference between a good compact camera and a digital SLR is minimal but bridge cameras are more portable, cost less and have a greater zoom ability. Thus a bridge camera may better suit outdoor daytime activities, except when seeking professional-quality photos.

Wireless connectivity Most digital cameras now offer a wireless connection type, such as Bluetooth, wi-fi or both, built in to wirelessly transfer photos or videos to your mobile phone or tablet. Most manufacturers also offer free apps to partner up with your camera; some even allow you to use your phone as a remote control, so you can be in the family portrait, too.
