Apertures are calibrated in f/stops and may be adjusted on some cameras. CCD Sensor CCD (Charged Coupled Device): A silicone chip comprised of millions of tiny, square light-gathering diodes called Picture Elements, or pixels, laid out in a checkerboard pattern. This is the "film" of a digital cam Super CCD: A proprietary CCD system, produced by Fujifilm, that utilizes larger, octagonal-shaped, light-gathering diodes called Picture Elements, or pixels, that are laid out in a saw-tooth pattern. Super CCD Super CCD HR (High Resolution): Is capable of nearly doubling the Number of Effective Pixels that are processed and stored as additional detail in the Recorded Pixel file. Super CCD SR (Sensitivity and Range): Uses a combination of small and large octagonal-shaped pixels to further enhance color accuracy, while improving detail in the areas of shadows and highlights, much lik Exposure Modes Exposure modes allow photographers more control over the amount of light used to capture images. Automatic Exposure (AE Mode): Will detect light levels and set exposure accordingly. Manual Exposure (ME Mode): Allows photographers to set aperture area and shutter speed for hands-on control over exposure. Aperture Priority (AP Mode): Camera will compensate with appropriate shutter speed to give the best picture. Exposure Compensation (EV Mode): Gives photographers the ability to alter auto exposure settings for artificial control over the amount of light in a picture. Program AE (P Mode): Functions much like auto exposure, but gives photographers more detailed control over a number of possible settings. Shutter-Priority Auto Mode (S Mode): Allows photographers to select a shutter speed while the camera sets the aperture for correct exposure. File Formats A program type to store data. Cameras use multiple file formats to store different types of media. RAW (Raw Binary Image Format): The Raw format is a flexible, cross-platform file format that allows users to include header information (file type, file creator, etc.) with files. This format supports up to 48-bit c JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group): A standard, lossy compression method for images. When users create a JPEG or convert an image from another format to a JPEG, they are asked to specify the quality TIFF or TIF (Tagged Image File Format): TIFF is a flexible, bitmap image format supported by virtually all image software and computer platforms. AVI (Audio Video Interleaved): A sound and motion picture file format that synchronizes audio and video. WAV or Wave File: A standard, uncompressed audio file format that interchanges between computer platforms (PC and Macintosh). In addition to audio data, the Wave format stores information on number of Flash Provides instantaneous bursts of illumination for brighter, clearer pictures. There are a variety of flash options to improve the picture-taking experience. Automatic Flash: Lights every picture as needed, unless turned off. Auto Flash with Flash Control Sensor: Detects light level and activates the flash accordingly. Red-Eye Reduction: Emits a pre-flash to minimize red-eye in low-light conditions. Forced Flash: Forces the flash to work, even on sunny days or when shooting backlit scenes. Slow Synchro: Gives clear, crisp details in night shooting. Suppressed Flash: Keeps the flash from firing. Focus Adjusts the distance between the lens and image to make the sharpest possible picture. There are several kinds of focus available for improved picture taking. Auto-Focus (AF): Automatically adjusts focus. Available in most Fujifilm digital cameras. Continuous Auto-Focus (CAF): Automatically adjusts, without any action from the photographer, to achieve correct focus as the camera moves. Manual Focus: Allows photographers to turn off AF for manual control. TTL Contrast Type (Through The Lens): Allows the camera to automatically focus through the lens, rather than by moving the lens back and forth manually. Focus Range The range within which a camera can focus on the subject. Usually, focus range is shown for Standard and Macro Modes. Standard Mode: Used for normal to long-range photography (1.5 ft. and over). Macro Mode: Allows photographers to take close-up pictures by adjusting the focus. LCD Monitor (Liquid Crystal A monitor that can be used as a viewfinder or to review photos and video clips already taken. On some cameras, there is a second LCD that provides better viewing in bright daylight. Display) Lens A cylindrical piece of glass or plastic that receives and focuses light to form an image. Most cameras list an f-number and focal length for each lens. F-Number: Indicates the size of the lens opening (aperture). Focal Length: The distance between the image sensor and the optical center of the lens. Lens Adapter: Allows photographers to use special lens attachments (Macro, Zoom, Filters, etc.) on certain cameras. Number of Effective Pixels Effective Pixels: The number of light-sensitive picture elements, or pixels, actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are "effectively" reflected in some way to the final number after image processing is complete. Recorded Pixels: Represents the number of output, or printable, pixels in a picture that was recorded on the Storage Media after the camera processes the Effective Pixel data from a CCD. Total Pixels: A specification for the image sensor (CCD) that indicates the total number of pixels contained in an image sensor. Not all the cameras' CCD pixels are used to form a final image; only the Number o Pixel (Picture Element): Used to express a picture's detail as stored in memory; also the detail-gathering ability of camera image sensors (CCD) or output devices, such as monitors. Number of Recorded Pixels Recorded Pixels: Represents the number of output, or printable, pixels in a picture that was recorded on the Storage Media after the camera processes the Effective Pixel data from a CCD. Sensitivity (Also "ISO Speed") The camera's sensitivity to light and the optimal lighting conditions for taking pictures with the camera. Fujifilm digital cameras sometimes allow photographers to choose from a range of sensitivities. Low Sensitivity: Requires more light for picture taking but creates less electronic "noise" that might lead to picture distortion. High Sensitivity: Requires less light for picture taking but creates more electronic "noise" than low sensitivity. Shooting Modes These provide photographers with greater control and creativity in picture taking. Auto Scene Position: Lets photographers specify the type of pictures they are taking (portrait, landscape, etc.) for beautiful, customized results without having to worry about manual exposure adjustments. Automatic Mode: Controls camera exposure for optimal picture quality. Continuous Mode: Lets photographers take multiple pictures with minimal lapse of time between shots. Photographers can sometimes shoot up to 40 frames/second by adjusting the focus. Macro Mode: Allows photographers to take close-up pictures by adjusting the focus. Manual Mode: Allows photographers to take total control over elements like focus, white balance, color, and exposure. Movie Mode: Allows photographers to record digital video clips, sometimes with sound. Program Mode: The camera selects both the aperture and shutter speed. Shutter Speed Determines the length of time the shutter lets light pass through the lens to the CCD. Shutter speed and aperture together determine exposure. Storage Media The type of memory card used to store data for a camera. Functions as the "film" for a digital camera. Fujifilm cameras use a variety of storage media. xD-Picture Card: Among the smallest compact, removable flash storage on the market. MicroDrive: Compact, removable flash storage developed by IBM. SmartMedia Card: Compact, removable flash storage. Viewfinder Window in the camera through which a photographer views the picture. Used for choosing, composing, and often focusing the image. Optical Viewfinder (Real Image): The photographer looks through a transparent window to frame and focus the image. The photographer is seeing the real image, through the window of the viewfinder. Digital Viewfinder: An LCD display built into a camera that gives a digital view of where the camera is pointing. It's used to compose and focus the image. White Balance Some cameras allow photographers to establish custom white balance to improve the color of the final picture. Automatic white balance will determine light conditions and adjust color balance automatically.
