What is the canon camera named after a goddess?

While EOS is often given, the sad fact is that all of them are.

The original Leica copy was called the 'Kwanon,' after the Shinto goddess of mercy, this was anglicized to Canon after WW2.

Can you convert a 35mm camera to digital?

Oh yes, it is possible, and has been done for a number of medium and large-format cameras. A digital camera back may be used in place of the film holder. However, it may be slightly impractical for 35 mm cameras, due to the stellar costs involved. I have seen digital backs for Leica 35 mm models, as well as a few home-made backs for Canon and Nikon cameras. Whether a commercial version is available depends on the actual camera in mind.

It really wouldn't be worth it except for some really expensive cameras like Leica Rs or Nikon F6s. By the time you got the thing working, you'd have more money invested than a factory-made digital camera costs.

Converting a medium-format or large-format camera is a different story. A medium format camera uses interchangeable backs so all you need do is remove your film back and put a digital back on. But the cost! If you wanted to put the least expensive Mamiya digital back on your Mamiya 645, it would cost you about $8000. If you have an RB67, the news is even worse: before you can put the multi-thousand-dollar back on your camera, you need to spend $600 for the piece that goes between back and body, which is called a lock. (An RZ67 lock is almost a thousand dollars.)

How can you make your digital prints look as good as film photos?

It is certainly possible to make your digital photos look as good as film photos. Follow a few simple rules for frame-worthy results:

  • Make sure you download your images at full resolution. Image quality is highest when photos are at full resolution.
  • Review the file properties: 300 dpi, 400K, and 1600 x 1200 pixel count is typically good for printing up to 8x10s.
  • Use archival paper to create long-lasting prints. Be sure to store it out of the sun and humidity, as both will degrade the paper.

The resolution that the photo is taken at is important but just as important as that will be the was that the photo was printed. Although the home photo printers and improving, I still feel that the photo going through a chemical process (like at a photo lab) will create the best results as well as having the best archieval quality. Also important to the outcome of the photo will be the quality of the camera itself (some have better lenses than others, some will have better color and some will have better allowance for low light situations) I prefer to stay with brands that specialize in optics.

Then you have the oral Torah or Talmud-

a tradition explaining what the above scriptures mean and how to interpret them and apply the Laws. Orthodox Jews believe G-d taught the Oral Torah to Moses, and he taught it to others, down to the present day. This tradition was maintained only in oral form until about the 2d century C.E., when the oral law was compiled and written down in a document called the Mishnah.

Over the next few centuries, additional commentaries elaborating on the Mishnah were written down in Jerusalem and Babylon. These additional commentaries are known as the Gemara. The Gemara and the Mishnah together are known as the Talmud. This was completed in the 5th century C.E.

The Mishnah is divided into six sections called sedarim

  • Zera'im (Seeds), dealing with agricultural laws
    • Berakhot
    • Peah
    • Demai
    • Kilayim
    • Shebiit

How does a periscope work?

Old trench periscopes worked by using two mirrors to bounce light from one place to another. A typical periscope uses two mirrors at 45 degree angles to the direction one desires to see. The light bounces from one to the other and

then out to the persons eye.

If there is an object in front of you, any nearby light source (i.e the sun, a lamp etc.) bounces straight rays of light onto the object and then into your eyes, enabling you to see it. However, if the object is not within straight lines of your eyes, the light will not find them and you will not be able to see the object (since light only travels in straight lines).

But a periscope works using the laws of reflection. Reflective objects like mirrors work by bouncing light so it carries on in a straight line but alters it's route, according to the angle of the mirror to the light source. This means that if the mirror was at a 45 degree angle to the light source then it would bounce off at a perpendicular (90 degree) angle. That is how a periscope works.

The important fact to note when considering a periscope is that the laws of reflection mean that the light hitting a mirror at an angle is reflected off at twice the angle of the mirror. Thus a 45 degree mirror reflects light rays through 90 degrees.

Submarine Periscopes

Submarine optical periscopes don't use mirrors due to their fragility and susceptibility to environmental conditions/changes, requiring special coatings. Instead, they use refractive prisms.

The newer U.S. Virginia-class and British Astute-class boats use neither; they use a Photonics Mast, which is essentially a hi-resolution camera array that is raised above the waterline. This has many advantages, the primary one being that the Control Room need not be directly under the main sail as in all previous modern submarine designs.


Why won't Windows Live Movie Maker let me edit video I recorded with my Canon SD780 digital camera?

The file format may not be compatible with Windows Movie Maker. Check to make sure the file name extension (format) of the camera video is one of the following:

.asf, .avi, dvr-ms, .m1v, .mp2, .mp2v, .mpe, .mpeg, .mpg, .mpv2, .wm, .wmv

If the file name extension is not one of those listed above, then you will need to convert the file to one of them before it can be imported/edited in Windows Movie Maker.


Will a Nikon flash work on a canon camera?

Short answer is no ... most flash units are camera specific, meaning that they will only work with the camera they were designed for.

Longer answer is yes ... if you want to 100% sure none of the smaller pins short out any of the contacts on the camera then just use pc sync socket or hotshoe to pc sync on the camera or some people just use tape. A double hotshoe adaptor that only has a center pin contact will also work. The main point is to ensure only the center pin of flash and camera is used. The flash will not be able to be used in TTL mode, but many Nikon flashes have a non TTL auto and a manual mode (dependent on model) that can be used. With old canon cameras the sync voltage needs to be below 6v, most Nikon flashes are below this but it's worthwhile checking.

Home Appliances

What is the average price of a refrigerator?

Prices for refrigerators vary so much its amazing! You can get very cheap ones for less than $400 and get some as high as $10K!!! What affects the price is mainly features such as Frost regulation systems, energy efficiency, capacity and obviously looks!

Added by User:

You're looking at about a grand for a good one with features such as water and ice in the door. The side-by-sides have the least amount of overall storage, where as the trio styles (french door refrigerator with bottom pull out freezer) are going to have the most space, but also cost the most. Then you get to your traditional top freezer, bottom fridge and visa versa. They use their footprint space the most economically compared to the trio's and side-by-sides. Like I said though, you can get a descent side by side and some pretty good traditionals for at or under $1000. The trio's typically start at ~$1500

Does the canon cameras have good quality?

Canon cameras are an excellent camera company. They have many different formats available, ranging from the digital format to manual cameras. Prices will also range dependent on features.

All manufacturers create different types of cameras to address specific photography needs. Canon, like other manufacturers, regularly upgrades their models. With each upgrade, certain features are improved; however, no camera is flawless, so you should read reviews of specific cameras to identify those features that are most important to you .

Savage Arms and J. Stevens
Remington Firearms

I have an old Savage 775A shotgun I cleaned it thoroughly and shot 12 rounds of 8 through it but it wont eject the spent shells?

take it to a gun smith and see if they can get the ejector/extractor replaced. Tell him/her what's wrong and they should be able to fix it. Also, try High brass and low brass as some shotguns are -very- picky about the size of the brass you use.

The main and most likely reason for not ejecting is that you probably have the friction/governor ring set up for heavy loads. The setting needs to be changed for heavy and light loads, exactly like a Remington model 11 or Browning A5.
