There are six kinds of cameras currently available in traditional cameras, and some of these types are also available in the more sophisticated digital cameras. These are:
Single use cameras, frequently called disposable cameras, Compact lens-shutter cameras, Bridge cameras, Rangefinders, Twin lens reflex cameras, Single lens reflex cameras
* How does a conventional camera work? A conventional camera has 3 elements to make it work. The optical element or lens, the chemical component or film, and the mechanical component or the camera body itself. Here are the basic parts of a conventional camera and its functions:
- The lens is a curved piece of glass or plastic that takes the beams of light rebounding off an object and redirects them to the camera operator’s eye.
- The film’s job is to record the image the photographer sees by chemically recording the pattern of light from the image. A film has a collection of miniscule light-sensitive grains that record the light by chemically reacting to it.
- Excessive light exposed to the film means the shot will look totally washed out, and not enough light exposed to the film will produce shots that are too dark.
* How does a digital camera work?
A digital camera works in a very similar to a traditional camera. It has a number of lense to focus light to form a shot of an object or scene. But rather than using film to record the light emitted by an object, it employs a semiconductor device that records the light electronically.
A digital camera is far more convenient if you’d like to email your shots to your family because you can produce instant photographs without chemically processing the film, printing it onto photo paper instead.
Professional photographers now use digital cameras because of the technological advancements that they bring. Therefore all the photos that look amazing are a result of using digital cameras.
