Usually captures images with the help of a CCD chip. The image data received is then saved to special memory cards or other storage media. (SmartMedia, xD-Picture Card, Compact Flash, Memory Stick, SD Card, MMC Card)
A camera that does not contain any film. The camera creates a digital object of the image, which can be downloaded into a computer system. In stead of film, a digital camera uses an electronic imaging sensor.
Instead of conventional light-sensitive film, digital cameras use highly-integrated components (CCD chips), which convert the image captured by the lens into digital data. This circumvents the use of film imaging, film development and scanning. In print and non-print media production, this saves time while also offering greater flexibility. There are digital cameras available for a whole range of applications, from recreational use to use in a professional capacity. As a rule studio cameras use separate digital units instead of traditional film cassettes.
Captures images (still or motion) digitally and does not require analog-to-digital conversion before the image can be transmitted or stored in a computer. The analog-to-digital conversion process (which takes place in CODEC s) usually causes some degradation of the image, and a time delay in transmission. Avoiding this step theoretically provides a better, faster image at the receiving end.
Instead of a roll of film, found in traditional cameras, digital cameras have a photosensitive component called a CCD sensor, which recognizes colors and contrasts. The captured photo data is saved on a special memory card which can then be viewed, edited or printed by a computer.
A digital camera is a filmless camera that captures pictures in an electronic format instead of on film. After they have been captured, these digital images can be easily transferred to a computer or to Shutterfly for storage, manipulation and digital photo printing services.
Cameras capable of recording photographic images on magnetic media rather than by exposing light sensitive silver bromide/silver oxide film to light. With appropriate software these images may be tailored and manipulated on a PC, and may be used as part of a multimedia content. Examples: Epson PhotoPC - about $A1150, Fuji DS7 - about $A1100.
A camera that records an image on a memory chip rather than on film, allowing the photo to be distributed electronically and quickly inserted into a document or multiple documents using digital technology.
A form of storing the image digitally (0's and 1's)instead of using film. Once the image is taken, it is stored onto memory which can then be transferred to a PC for later viewing and printing. Does not require film developing. Once an expensive gismo, now an affordable method of taking photographs.
A camera that captures an image through the lens but instead of on film, it does it on an an electronic image sensor, a CCD (Charged Coupled Device); then temporarily transferred into a FlashCard(tm) for eventual download into a computer.
A camera that stores images digitally as image files rather than recording them on film. These image files can be downloaded to a computer, stored on the hard disk, manipulated with a graphics design program, and printed.
camera which captures and stores images as digital (electronic) information. Images can be stored in memory in the camera or in plug-in cards, or on discs. Images may be transferred to the computer for use in documents or content-free programs. Some printers can print photos directly from memory cards.
A Camera which records images in digital form rather than on photographic film. These are both video digital cameras and still image digital cameras. Images are often stored on standard three inch diskettes using a standard bitmap format, such as TIFF. Digital cameras work in a similar way to scanners using charged coupled devices.
A camera used to record images digitally rather than on film. Once a picture is taken, it can be downloaded to a computer, and manipulated with a graphics program, printed or stored on an Internet site like Epson PhotoCenter. The benefit of digital cameras is that viewing photos is inexpensive and fast because there is no film processing.
Similar to traditional cameras, digital cameras can record images. However, rather than using film, they store the information digitally. While film allows for nearly infinitesimal resolution, digital print quality is limited by the amount of memory that is available in the camera. The best digital camera attached to the best printer still cannot approach the quality of traditional photography (scanning a traditional photo into digital format equalizes this imbalance). The technology is improving rapidly, and there are many benefits to a digital camera:* no additional processing cost * images can be easily uploaded to a computer* images are nearly web-ready* instantaneous results (you can usually view images taken immediately).

camera that captures digital images that are stored on a memory card or disk, and then can be transferred to a computer to be manipulated and printed. Disk thin, rectangular object used to store computer data.
A photographic camera that uses highly-integrated components (CCD chips) to convert the image captured by the lens into digital data, thus circumventing the need for film imaging, film development and scanning.
The newest generation of video cameras transform visual information (lightness and darkness) into pixels, then translate the pixel's level of light into a number (or, in the case of color, into three numbers _ one for the level of red, green and blue in the pixel). These digital images can then be manipulated pixel by pixel to create exciting new applications in video and film production. They can also be compressed, stored and transmitted in more or less the same manner as traditional digital data.
A camera that takes pictures that are stored as electronic files. Pictures taken on digital cameras are stored in the camera's memory. Digital photos can be transferred to computers via usb leads or SMART card readers.
Portable optical recorder that captures images on an internal memory chip, removable PC cards, or other digital media. Images can be transferred electronically to a computer for manipulation, e-mailing or website creation.
Input device used to take pictures and store the photographed images digitally, instead of on traditional film. 1.5, 1.6, 5.18- 20, 11.12 handheld computer, 5.17 photo printers and, 6.20 Picture CD and, 7.22 storage, 7.28 SuperDisk(tm) drive, 7.10 Web publishing and, 1.36, 2.26
A digital camera is an electronic device used to capture and store photographs electronically instead of using photographic film like conventional cameras. Modern compact digital cameras are typically multifunctional, with some devices capable of recording sound and/or video as well as photographs.
