How do you tell the difference between a Secure Digital Multi Media card for a portable audio player versus a digital camera?
My understanding is that an SD card is an SD card, no matter what the use is. The difference is what data is stored on it. (eg. Photos or music)

If you are new to digital photography, you don't need to purchase an expensive digital camera. Even if you do have experience using a digital camera, an expensive camera doesn't always guarantee a good shot. Most importantly, you need to learn the basics of photography and learn about exposure and l…ight - learn how to take a good picture first. Then, you can buy a fancy camera with lots of bells and whistles. Here are suggestions for what type of camera you might need and the features they may have: Note: These are very high level suggestions. Some cameras may have more or fewer features in their respective price ranges. . Inexpensive: (under $150) May or may not have an LCD screen, Use a lower-priced CMOS sensor, lower resolution, and good for e-mailing photos to friends and for fun if you are learning and new to photography. . Mid-range ($150 to 900) This is a broad category. Some cameras in the lower end of this category have the following features: may not have a zoom, have an autofocus, uses CCDs as opposed to small CMOS sensors, offer resolution from 1 or 1.3 megapixel, print good photos - up to 6 X 4. This range offers a lot for the "beginning" user. The cameras in the higher end of this category have the following: 2 to 3 megapixel, print images up to 8 X 6, offer priority modes, zoom lenses and mini-movie features; optical viewfinder. . High end ($900 +) High resolution CCDS that are 2 or 3 megapixels and above , TTL viewfinders, extensive controls and stabilized long zooms, 2 or 3 metering systems, more than one type of recording media, and compatibility with external flash units. . 9-07-2006 Main differences? Just a couple....... Some settings : A for aperature priority. S for shutter priority. M for manual mode. Many others.... Also more megapixels make a difference. (more megs = bigger sizes of picture into prints) Lens quality.. Type of batteries it takes. How close you can get.. Shutter speed possibilities. And a few more.... . What are the main differences between expensive and inexpensive digital cameras? . Sensor Size (Bigger = more $) . The physical dimensions of the image sensor (not the number of pixels). Put simply, a larger sensor captures more information, improving image accuracy. . Shutter Speed (Faster = more $) . Faster shutter speeds can capture faster action. . Features (More, Advanced = more $) . (different per make and model) . Image Format . .JPG and .RAW are common examples. Formats like .RAW capture more color information, but at a larger file size. . Larger file sizes require faster image processors in camera . Optics (Better, Clearer = more $) . Better optics (lenses) will focus light onto the sensor better, generally resulting in sharper images. . Bigger sensor sizes typically need bigger lenses. . ISO Performance (Less Grainy = more $) . Many factors impact ISO performance . Sensor Resolution . This is the number of pixels captured by the sensor (example 10.1 megapixels). . More is not always better, bigger sensor sizes handle higher resolutions better. ( Full Answer )
What is the difference between an SLR digital camera and a compact digital with manual exposure control?
Answer . Principle difference is "through-the-lens" framing and focus. Naturally you can control depth of field, light levels, focus, etc with both units, but with the SLR you see these changes before you take the picture.. Answer . There are advantages and disadvantages to both types of came…ra:. The compact will be smaller, lighter and quieter; the SLR has a mirror that flips up when the shutter is released to switch light from the viewfinder to the sensor. This makes a noise, the compact doesn't need the mirror so they can be pretty much silent.. On the other hand, apart from the Leica M8, compact digitals do not have interchangeable lenses. Being able to change lenses is a big advantage, you can also see the affects of any filters by looking through the viewfinder.. In most cases a digital SLR will have better quality optics, sensor and light metering than a compact digital - although there are exceptions; the M8 would give any DSLR a run for its money for quality - but it does cost Â£3000 for the body alone!. 9-07-2006. The SENSOR !. The sensor is what holds the image you took.. On most point and shoot digital cameras, the sensor is a certain size....... On a digital SLR, the sensor is BIGGER.. The Sensor is not only larger, but is much more sensitive . ( Full Answer )
Film camera's use the old film canisters and have to be developed(taken to the store). Digital cameras use memory to store theimages, and can be uploaded to your computer/ipod/etc. Digital camera: Points of light are detected andeach point (called a pixel) is assigned a value representing coloran…d intensity. The collection of pixels is saved to some kind ofelectronic media, flash card, magnetic disk, optical disk or maybesomething entirely different. The resulting file can be read byimaging software and the photo can then be printed. Film camera: Points of light are detected and eachpoint is recorded by a grain of chemical material that is lightsensitive. The chemical material can be processed in a lab andturned into negatives and/or prints or transparencies. Theresulting image can be put in a book, framed and put on your deskor just thrown into an old shoebox. ( Full Answer )
No difference, it is the same thing. A digital camera uses a CCD (Charge-Coupled Device) to receive or "see" the image.

Answer: As is often the case with nomenclature, what defines a digital media player depends on who you are asking and is often subject to the emerging trend in usage of the term by the general public. Broadly speaking, a digital media player is any stand-alone device that is designed and used for… the main purpose of playing back digital media. By current popular definition, digital media includes video, audio, and photo files. Thus far, the general public has treated ebooks and other mostly text content files as a separate entity and does not generally refer to ebook readers as digital media players - although many ebook readers have the secondary capability of playing back digital media. Therefore, it can be said that an iPod, any iPod for that matter, is a type of digital media player. However, the general public has typically used other nomenclature to describe iPods and similar portable devices: MP3 Players: iPods began as strictly music/audio players, and thus when people mention iPod, it is in conjunction with the concept of a MP3 player. Even as many of today's iPod models support video and photo playback their primary purpose is still focused on audio file playback and thus are primarily referred to as MP3 players. Portable Media Players: As portable devices began gaining video and photo playback capabilities, the usage of PMP to describe these devices increased. In fact, most of iPod's current products, with the exclusion of the shuffle, qualifies as a PMP product. As iPod models gain additional capabilities as well as increasingly robust features, they will start to defy definition by a single name. In the current market, digital media player is used to refer to a class of products that are designed to playback digital media on a TV or other large external displays. Examples include the Western Digital WD TV series, the Asus O!Play, and popular products by Popcorn Hour. These products are generally not portable in nature and are designed as a general purpose media player that replaces traditional media playback devices such as DVD or BD players. Additional information about this class of products can be found on the Digital Media Player Buyer's Guide at the following URL: http://content.miccastore.com/digital-media-player-buyers-guide ( Full Answer )
A optical zoom use the lenses to focus in on a subject, pretty much the same way binoculars work. Digital zoom magnifies the subject by enlarging in in the pic thru a digital process, this is not a true type of zoom.
Answer . It's the memory card (sometimes called memory stick) that's used to hold the image files.
The difference is in what is used to capture the light. In film SLRs, the film exposed to light needs to be chemically processed. In digital SLRs, the sensor detects light and can produce high-quality images instantly and without buying more film.
The simplest answer is that a film camera uses light-sensative film and a chemical process to create a photograph while a digital camera uses electronic circuitry to create a computer file of an image.
this website sucks, it has no answers Look at the answer for What are memory cards?

MIDI is *NOT* sound. It is performance information. IE: the key C3 was triggered for 1 second at a velocity of 90 Digital Audio is a broad term - sound is captured/stored/modified/played back from combinations of 0's and 1's to re-create an analog sound signal. MIDI is device dependent. it doesn'…t transmit an audio signal or media. it transmit "event messages" such as pitch and intensity of musical notes to play control signals for parameters such as volume vibrato. midi needs sequence software sound synthesizer lets u record or edit data soo editing is easy. if u digitized bitmap graphic image to vector graphic, midi is used. MIDI file size is small. it requires less memory or file format is small. As they are small, can embedded in web page and load & play quickly. It contains actual signal or voice. Digital Audio: It is device independent. when record a digital audio, signal from analogue sensor like microphone is sampled using frequency and converted to digital format using an ADC converter. for playing music their info is again converted to analogue audio signal. Digitizing audio simply play the audio through a sound card. editing is not easy. file size is large so fie format is.. it not contains actual signal.. ( Full Answer )
In a digital camera, the image enters the camera as light (analog data). It is converted to digital data by the processor, after being recorded by the sensor, which takes the place of the film. Recording the data digitally allows extremely high resolutions with the proper sensor, while still storing… the images in a small space via memory cards and other digital storage. Printing of images is done as with any other digital document or, in certain cases, by digitally controlling the light of three different-colored lasers to expose photographic media, either film or photoprinting paper. Conventional cameras project the light onto photographic film, where it is stored in the form of chemical changes in the emulsion of the film (analog storage). The image cannot be removed from the film and stored elsewhere, and the film cannot be re-used. The film is removed from the camera and processed chemically to make the image visible. It is then projected either on a screen or on a piece of paper (with its own emulsion), developed and then used. Resolution depends on the quality of the emulsion and the size of the film and print..

A film camera records a photo onto a strip of film, which then needs to be taken to a photo clinic to be processed. The quality is about 25 megapixels. A digital camera records a photo onto a memory card, which can be reviewed on the camera's screen instantly, and you have the option of deleting o…r saving it. The quality can range from 8-12 megapixels, which is considerably lower than a film camera. ( Full Answer )
Kane Kramer is the inventor of the digital auto player. The iPod and mp3 players are both DAP's (Digital Audio Players - See Wikipedia) mp3 is the audio file types name only but the mp3 player is a digital audio player and the iPod is just the brand name of Apple Computers digital audio player. T…hese are both digital audio players though, and Kramer invented the Digital Audio Player. The Microsoft Zune was also a digital audio player but whilst Kramer invented the DAP I don't think he worked for Microsoft. I hope this helps and you don't get confused by that if doing a project about iPod's and mp3's like me and my friend did. ( Full Answer )
Film cameras take the image and print it on to a film strip as digital cameras take the image and virtually mount it to a digital format.
I assume you mean analogue versus digital sound? In analogue sound reproduction, the sound is converted to another form - as an analogy. Waves in the air are converted into waves in vinyl or magnetic patterns on tape. In digital reproduction, the sound is first of all converted to electrical v…oltage waves and the voltage is rapidly measured and converted to numbers - thousands of samples are taken per second (44,100 samples per second for CD quality). If you're asking which is better, that's quite a controversial question! It's definitely true that a good digital recording is better than a bad analogue and vice versa. It has also been argued that sound recording reached a plateau of quality around 1973 - which was entirely analogue; digital sound isn't better, but it is much more convenient to work with.

its a sd card. you hold your information on it on a camera or etc
An analogue camera uses film but a digital camera does not. . This area, equivalent to the eye's retina, is replaced by a silicon chip known as a Charged Coupled Device( CCD). Light enters via the lens and falls on to many tiny pixel elements etched on to the chip. Light is turned in to a tiny amo…unt of electrical charge and each cell's content is sequentially moved across the chip like a line of buckets handed from one person to another until it reaches the edge of the chip. This 'Bucket Brigade Device' then stores the [pixel elements in the memory card for printing out. ( Full Answer )
Here is a question alot of people ask when buying cameras. Which should I buy..the "advanced" SLR or a Point and Shoot? Let's first address the "what do I use the camera for" aspect. If your looking for a camera to take family candids, vacations, just hit the button convience or everyday living I wo…uld suggest a point and shoot camera. That does not mean techno saviness not required either. All cameras require to a degree some techno learning, but just not as much needed with a point and shoot. Point and shoot cameras are created for convience...the camera to think for you and you hit the button to take the pic. Automatically it will focus, pick your shutter speed, pick your aperature, and if your still using film..will set your ISO film speed. This is done all automatically with a point and shoot, all you have to do is compose the shot and hit the button. Hence the name "Point and Shoot". Now if your looking for control...now it is time to look at SLR cameras..Single Lens Reflex. This involves people looking to further photography from plain ole candids to taking fine art. You need the control for instead of the camera thinking for you..you are thinking for it. Of course you have to remember the cost factor. With an SLR you will be buying camera body, many different types of interchangable lens for the body, filters, remote controller, tripod, hot shoe flash, etc. Yes it can get very costly. But in the end worth it and priceless. Let's go over just some advantages and differences: Point and Shoot Camera Controlled Fixed Lens with limitations on zoom Need a 5 megapixel or better for prints larger than 8 x 10 ISO Film Speed limitations Aperature and Shutter Limitations..small range Viewing thru viewfinder exactly as naked eye sees not as lens sees * Perfect for those quick shots of Grandma in the yard Less techno lingo required Most times all automatic including focus (*which u wont know thru looking thru the viewfinder until shot is developed) Small and lightweight Easy storage and travel Will take most large memory cards Some P/S cameras have add on filters for effects..bit more expensive camera to buy Some P/S cameras have add on lens for zoom and wide angle..also a bit ore expensive camera to buy SLR's Person controlled Interchangle lens for wide variety of shooting (telephoto, wide angle, fisheye, macro etc) Most are 6 megapixel and better..high resolution and high file for printing some as large as 20 x 30 ISO film speeds from 100-1600..larger range for low light and bright light situations Aperature and Shutter with auto settings or manual -Larger ranges Aperature from an F2-F32 on some..greater depth of field view -Shutter from bulb-1/3000 of a sec or higher in some..greater speed captures or slow motion captures Viewing thru the viewfinder as the lens sees the images , your eye sees at that time if in focus or not More techno lingo learning required Lot more gear to carry and store Will take all types of memory card storage..2 gigbyte can provide over 1000 images even high file size Perfect for the budding photographer looking to make more than a hobby All types of Filters for effects are available .

In basic… Terms, Analogue audio is slightly crackly and much lower quality than Digital audio. ( Full Answer )
A Digital SLR (D-SLR) has a removable lens and larger image sensor. That means that regardless of megapixel a D-SLR will take a better picture because the photo does not lose as much picture quality as it would in a Bridge or Point and Shoot camera. A D-SLR is faster and the time between taking phot…os is shorter. A Bridge camera will offer more zoom but less picture quality. A D-SLR can be upgraded with a different lens however to gain more zoom. ( Full Answer )

Analog audio is the purest form of what will ultimately reach your ears. Air movement is analog. "Digital" means "sampling" - taking an average value of a function at a given time and then storing that as a number. The higher the sample rate, the more samples will be provided for a given time - r…esulting in a more accurate reproduction of sound. "Analog" means "wave" - when you see your country's flag flap on the wind, it doesn't go from one position to another in a set of discrete (countable) steps - it just moves, somewhat "flows", like a river. Analog audio "flows" within the sound spectrum in a continuous stream of voltage, digital audio reproduces that by setting specific voltages at specific moments in order to mimic this flow. Imagine a sine wave - the way it is continuous throughout? Now take the values of the sine wave at regular intervals (the more frequent, the better) and write them down. When you put them on an empty grid, they will look a bit like the sine wave, but not exactly - they'll be just points, mimicking a flow. But computers don't store flows, they store numbers! And thus, digital audio. ( Full Answer )
film must be developed (enlarge small frame on film to larger specialized paper copy) this requires chemistry and generally cannot be done at home (unless you have a dark room). Digital cameras can be viewed with a computer without developing the picture and can be printed on normal paper from mo…st printers in order to have a physical copy of the photo. ( Full Answer )
A digital camera can be either a "still camera" or a "moving camera", or both. A still camera captures still images - pictures that doesn't move. When people refer to something simply as a "camera", this is usually the type that's being referred to. A moving camera, also called "motion camera", "v…ideo camera", or more commonly as "camcorder" records motion pictures - pictures that moves. Most modern digital cameras will do both. They will capture still images as their primary function, but also have a video mode that captures motion pictures. On the other hand, most modern camcorders will also take still images, only that their primary function is to record videos, or "moving pictures". ( Full Answer )

MIDI is not audio. MIDI is a series of commands such as on, off, volume, decay, etc. MIDI controls audio, but is not audio. Digital audio is audio made out of 1's and 0's (binary code). It's a digital representation of an audio waveform.
the difference is film camera needs a film to capture a picture and digital camera does not need the film to proceed. but it needs only a memory chip to save the captured pictures on it.
The difference is the lens, auto-focus, color and sharpness / detail of the picture, but this only depends on the two cameras that you are comparing.
Digital Camera can be used to take photos & videos. whereas still camera is used only for stills.
One takes only pictures - the other makes phone-calls (but may have the facility to take photos) !
The main difference between a film and digital camera is the fact that a film camera uses film. A digital camera uses a SD card instead of film.
DSLR stands for " digital single lens reflex" and are the modern equivalents of the film based single lens reflex cameras. As the name suggests, they are digital and use an electronic sensor as any other digital camera does. The difference between DSLRs and other digital cameras is in the way the p…hotographer sees images in preparation to take a picture. A single lens reflex camera uses a mirror positioned behind the lens to direct the light onto a viewing screen. The viewfinder delivers an image using the same lens as that used to capture a picture. When the shutter is released, the mirror moves out of the light path, the image is captured and the mirror returns to its normal position. The photographer sees the viewfinder go dark for a fraction of a second. Other digital cameras use a separate optical viewfinder or have a display on the rear of the camera that shows whatever the sensor is viewing. A DSLR tends to be much larger than other types of digital camera but they share many features such as auto-focus, auto--exposure, manual overrides and so on. The SLR is designed to be a robust and flexible camera and generally there will be a wide range of lenses and other accessories that other compact digital cameras do not have. Although many compact digital cameras produce excellent pictures and are of outstanding quality, the DSLR is the camera that lends itself to the professional and serious amateur photographer by providing flexibility and because of the accuracy of the viewfinder compared to those of a compact camera.
