What Exactly Is A Camera Sensor, And How Important Is The Size?
It is a rectangular array with millions of small micro-sensors. Every sensor will record one pixel of image data once the light hit the sensors through the camera lens. The more the number of sensors, the more will be the potential detail of an image. However, megapixel count is not the only important factor to consider while you are looking for a camera. In fact, it’s not that important if compared with the other factors.
The physical size of the sensor, for instance, it has a much larger bearing on the quality of image if compared to the number of megapixels, because the larger the sensor, the more light it can capture in fraction of seconds. Even when you go for 20 megapixels, it won’t capture a detailed picture unless the lighting conditions are good.
On the other hand, using 12 physically larger megapixels on a 35 mm full-frame sensor can produce excellent shots in any circumstances. The answer is, yes, size matters when we are talking about sensors, more specifically if you are going to shoot in low light.
Should You Look For A Digital Camera With Manual Controls?
That will depend on many aspects. How important is shutter speed, aperture, focus, sensitivity and white balance for you? Or are you simply going to use the camera for pointing and shooting? Comfortable with the camera’s autofocus, sensors and software?
Most of the people usually go for the second option, and a good digital camera has exceptional automatic settings which helps the photographer to shoot in any kind of situation. Keep all these great tips in mind to make the best choice. 🙂
