Photography Terms and Definitions
Terms
Definitions
auto exposure bracketing
(AEB)
A simple technique professional photographers use to ensure they properly
expose their pictures, especially in challenging lighting situations. When AEB
is selected, the camera automatically takes three or more shots with a different
exposure for each frame.
autofocus (AF)
Autofocus refers to a camera lens’ ability to adjust its configuration in order
to focus properly on a subject regardless of whether it is near or far from the
camera. Autofocus lenses generally provide vastly superior image quality than
do their fixed focus cousins since they do not have to rely on their depth of
field. Also known as: “AF”, “auto-focus”
album
An end-user created object that is used to logically group data objects
according to some user-defined criteria. An album may or may not be a
physical folder in a filesystem.
Analog to Digital
Converter (A/D or ADC)
A circuit that converts an analog signal, having a continuously varying
amplitude, to a digitally quantized representation using binary output signals.
aspect ratio
cf. image aspect ratio, pixel aspect ratio.
auto white balance (AWB)
With auto white balance, the camera attempts to determine the color
temperature of the light and automatically adjust for that color temperature.
Many people just leave the camera set to auto white balance all the time.
Charge Coupled Device
(CCD)
A type of silicon integrated circuit used to convert light into an electronic signal.
compression
cf. image compression, sound file compression
connection
A transport-provided logical or physical persistent mechanism for transferring
data between devices.
Digital Print Order Format
(DPOF)
A standardized ASCII file created in a digital camera and stored on removable
media along with the image files that indicate how many copies of which
images should be printed. It also allows index prints, cropping, and text
overlays to be specified.
vii
Terms
Definitions
digital still camera (DSC)
A camera incorporating an image sensor which outputs a digital signal
representing a still picture, or records a digital signal representing a still picture
on a removable medium, such as a memory card or magnetic disk.
dynamic range
cf. ISO DSC dynamic range, colour gamut, luminance ratio
Exif/JPEG
A compressed file format for digital cameras in which the images are
compressed using the baseline JPEG standard, described in ISO 12234-2,
and metadata and thumbnail images are stored using TIFF tags within an
application segment at the beginning of the JPEG file.
exposure index
A numerical value that is inversely proportional to the exposure provided to
an image sensor to obtain an image. Images obtained from a camera using a
range of exposure index values will normally provide a range of image quality
levels.
file system
The software structure which specifies how the data are logically organized on
a given storage medium.
folder
An optional sub-structure in a hierarchical storage area that can contain data
objects.
ISO speed
A numerical value calculated from the exposure provided at the focal plane of
an electronic camera to produce specified camera output signal characteristics
using the methods described in the referenced standard. The ISO speed
should correlate with the highest exposure index value that provides peak
image quality for normal scenes.
JPEG
Joint Photographic Experts Group. An image compression method defined in
ISO/IEC 10918-1.
memory card
A specific type of memory module with a physical form factor approximating
that of a credit card in outline; approx. 85 mm x 55 mm.
OSD
On Screen Display
PC
Personal Computer. Any personal computing device, which may employ
various hardware architectures and operating systems.
protocol
Defined mechanisms for exchanging data between devices.
StorageID
A device-specific four byte unsigned integer (UINT32) that represents a unique
storage area that may contain data objects. The most significant sixteen bits
of a StorageID represents the PhysicalStorageID, while the least significant
sixteen bits of a StorageID represents the LogicalStorageID.
USB
Universal serial bus, a digital interface for connecting up to 64 devices in a
tiered-star topology. See http://www.usb.org.
white balance
The adjustment of electronic still picture color channel gains or image
processing so that radiation with relative spectral power distribution equal to
that of the scene illumination source is rendered as a visual neutral.
