What are the two main file formats for saving digital pictures in a digital camera?
JPG and a native (proprietary) RAW format. TIF used to be common, but no more. JPG is a "lossy" compressed format, limited to 8 bits of information per RGB chanel, per pixel. The term "lossy" means that the data isn't completely (1-for-1) restored when it's saved. RAW formats vary, and are highly dependent on the sensor in the camera. Instead of using the firmware in the camera to render the image, you use software in your computer to render the image. The file typically caries 10 bits of information per RGB channel per pixel, or more. This can give you more options for dynamic range (ratio of lightest part of the photo to the darkest), and finer graduation between the colors.

it has a inbuilt memory and a film in it
You first have to post it on the internet before it has a url, using a site like www.flickr.com
Instead of the photos being on film, they are saved onto a memory card. This allows you to remove the card, print the photos you want, and re-use the card as much as you want.… Just be sure to not delete any photos that you want to keep on the memory card.
Medium format cameras are generally used by professional photographers, and take film in the 2-1/4 x 3-1/4 inch or 6mm X 7mm formats. A medium format digital camera would have… a digital sensor of a size that could use the lenses from cameras designed for those film sizes. Some medium-format cameras like the Hasselblad have removable backs that can be replaced with a digital back that turns the film camera into a digital. These cameras and film backs typically have sensors from 20 Megapixels to about 50. Needless to say, both the cameras and lenses are wildly expensive. Equally needless to mention, they give incredible results, yielding images that can be enlarged to billboard size.
i have windows vista i cannot download from digital camera to PC
Yes, however these come in the form of a digital file such as .JPG or .TIF, which can then be printed to be simply called a picture.
Do you mean to transfer pictures from a digital camera to a computer ? Just connect the camera through an USB connector. If you haven't the digital camera program already in…stalled, just connect the camera through the USB plug to your computer, and wait for the operating system to detect the new hardware, the digital camera. Once detected, wait for the camera led stop flashing, and a window will open with the files of the pictures you have taken. Select all the pictures and move them to a folder previously created ( My pictures, etc) Click on edit, select all and move to the new folder you have created, into the computer. Note that those actions depend of the operating system, the camera brand, but normally it may work well since you take the adequate steps. Once in the computer, the pictures can be edited using Microsoft Picture Manager for instance, since you have the Office 2003/2007 suite installed.
Well it's a camera that's um digital and uh the format is the whole thing and that is it really good of you to ask it
Funny question, huh, dude? Just press the biggest button on the camera.
generally digicams are full HD. so it has 1080 pixels... pixels decides the clearity of the pictures....
first connect camera with your pc. then cut all the pictures from camera and paste it in your computer.it's very simple
we can use memory card for the digital camera and we can reuse it as more times pitcher clarity is good than other...
you have to get a this card
Yes. The most popular format for storing photos is the jpeg format which means the name of the file generated by the camera is most commonly something ending with the three… letter jpg or JPG extension. This is not true for all pictures on all cameras, just most cameras. The basic hand held "point and shoot" camera that can be purchased currently will store photos in jpeg format. Older cameras and more expensive cameras are more likely to have a different format. It is also true that the camera may be capable of storing the image in (or converting it to) several different formats based on the settings selected by the user. The jpeg format saves space but it also removes details from the photo the camera has actually taken. Normally a typical camera employs one or three CCDs (charge coupled devices) to detect the light and record the image. That information acquired by the CCDs is a much larger, and requires typically more than ten times the storage than the jpeg version of the image. The reduction is size occures when the camera converts from the original raw image data to the jpeg format and when the encoding in jpeg takes place, information in the original image is lost. The highest quality cameras, that a professional photographer might use, do not convert to jpeg but use other formats which retain more or all of the original information collected by the light detectors (CCDs). There are many other formats for digital images with advantages and disadvantages when considering the image quality versus image size issues and also the issue of image manipulation. One can literally write a book on the technicalities and uses of these many other formats, so that aspect of the answer is best done by a separate investigation by those interested. Wikipedia has an extensive description of the jpeg format at the link below.
