Concepts in Photography
Shooting postures
A correct posture for stabilizing the camera is necessary for taking a good
photo. Even if you hold a camera correctly, the wrong posture can cause
the camera to shake. Stand up straight and remain still to maintain a
steady base for your camera. When shooting with a slow shutter speed,
hold your breath to minimize body movement.
Standing photography
Compose your shot, stand up straight with your feet shoulder-length
apart, and keep your elbows pointed down.
Holding the camera
Hold the camera with your right hand and place your right index finger on
the shutter button. Place your left hand under the lens for support.
14
Concepts in Photography
Crouching photography
Compose your shot, crouch with one knee touching the ground, and keep
a straight posture.
Using the display
To take photos at high or low angles, tilt the display up or down. You can
tilt the display up to 90° upwards ( ) or 45° downwards ( ).
• Keep the display closed ( ) when the camera is not in use.
• Tilt the display only within the angle allowed. Failing to do so may damage
your camera.
15
Concepts in Photography
Low-angle shot
A low-angle shot is a shot from a camera positioned below your eyeline,
looking up the subject.
High-angle shot
A high-angle shot is a shot from a camera positioned above your eyeline,
looking down on the subject.
16
Concepts in Photography
Aperture
The aperture is one of the three factors that determine the exposure. The
aperture housing contains thin, metal plates that open and close to let
light through the aperture and into the camera. The size of the aperture
is related to the amount of light: a larger aperture allows more light and a
smaller aperture allows less light.
Aperture sizes
The size of the aperture is represented by a value known as an “F-number“.
The f-number represents the focal length divided by the diameter of the
lens. For example, if a lens with a 50 mm focal length has an f-number of
F2, the diameter of the aperture is 25 mm. (50 mm/25 mm = F2)
The smaller the f-number, the greater the size of the aperture.
The size of the aperture opening is defined as the Exposure Value (EV).
Increasing the Exposure Value (+1 EV) means the amount of light doubles.
Decreasing the Exposure Value (-1 EV) means the amount of light halves.
You can also use the exposure compensation feature to fine-tune the
amount of light by subdividing exposure values into 1/2, 1/3 EV, and so on.

Aperture value and the depth of field
You can blur or sharpen the background of a photo by changing the size
of the aperture. A large aperture gives your photos a shallow depth of
field (DOF). Objects immediately in front of or behind your subject will
be blurred, while the subject will be in focus. A small aperture gives your
photos a deep depth of field. Objects far in front or far behind your subject
and your subject will be in focus.
The aperture housing contains several blades. These blades move together and
control the amount of light passing through the center of the aperture. The
number of blades also affects the shape of light when shooting night scenes. If
an aperture has an even number of blades, light divides into an equal number
of sections. If the number of blades is odd, the number of sections is double the
number of blades.
For example, an aperture with 8 blades divides light into 8 sections and an
aperture with 7 blades into 14 sections.

Therefore, the faster the shutter speed, the less light will be let in. Likewise,
the slower the shutter speed, the more light will be let in.
Shutter speed
Shutter speed refers to the amount of time it takes to open and close the
shutter. It controls the amount of light which passes through the aperture
before it reaches the image sensor.
Shutter speeds are measured in seconds and parts of a second. On
many cameras, the shutter speeds are approximately halved with each
succeeding setting - 1 s, 1/2 s, 1/4 s, 1/8 s, 1/15 s, etc. Like successive
aperture settings, each successive shutter speed setting lets in about half
the amount of light. Consequently, each successive shutter speed setting
equals an EV (Exposure Value) change of about 1 EV.
A slow shutter speed allows more light into the camera to make photos
brighter. However, because the shutter is open longer, moving subjects
appear blurred. A fast shutter speed allows less light in to make photos
darker. However, because the shutter is open for a shorter time, moving
subjects look sharper and more focused.

ISO sensitivity
The exposure of an image is determined by the sensitivity of the camera.
This sensitivity is based on international film standards, known as ISO
standards. On digital cameras, this sensitivity rating is used to represent
the sensitivity of the digital mechanism that captures the image.
ISO sensitivity doubles as the number doubles. For example, an
ISO 200 setting is capable of capturing images at twice the speed of an
ISO 100 setting. However, higher ISO settings can result in “noise“—small
specks, spots, and other phenomena in a photo that give the shot a noisy
or dirty appearance. As a general rule, it is best to use a low ISO setting
to prevent noise in your photos, unless you are shooting in darkened
environments or at night.
Because a low ISO sensitivity means the camera will be less sensitive to
light, you need more light to have an optimal exposure. When using a low
ISO sensitivity, open the aperture more or reduce the shutter speed to
allow more light to enter the camera. For example, on a sunny day when
light is abundant, a low ISO sensitivity does not require a slow shutter
speed. However, in a dark place or at night, a low ISO sensitivity will
result in a blurry photo. Therefore, it is recommended to increase the ISO
sensitivity by a moderate amount.

How the aperture setting, shutter speed,
and ISO sensitivity control exposure
The aperture setting, shutter speed, and ISO sensitivity are closely
interconnected in photography. The aperture setting controls the opening
that regulates the light that enters the camera, while the shutter speed
determines the length of time that light is allowed to enter. ISO sensitivity
determines the speed at which the film reacts to light. Together, these
three aspects are described as the triangle of exposure.
Settings

Results
Fast speed
= less light
Slow speed
= more light
Fast = still
Slow = blurry
A change in shutter speed, aperture value, or ISO sensitivity can be offset
by adjustments to the others to maintain the amount of light. The results,
however, change according to the settings. For example, shutter speed is
useful in expressing movement, aperture can control the depth of field,
and ISO sensitivity can control the graininess of a photo.

Correlation between focal length, angle,
and perspective
Long focal length
telephoto lens
Focal length, which is measured in millimeters, is the distance between
the middle of the lens to its focal point. It affects the angle and perspective
of captured images. A short focal length translates into a wide angle,
which allows you to capture a wide shot. A long focal length translates
into a narrow angle, which allows you to capture telephoto shots.

Concepts in Photography
What controls out-of-focus effects?
Depth of field
The depth of field (DOF) is the focused area around the subject.
In general, the DOF can be shallow or deep. In photos with a shallow DOF,
the subject is sharply focused, the background is blurred and the subject
stands out. In contrast, photos with a deep DOF have all the elements of
the photo in sharp focus.
DOF depends on the aperture value
A low aperture value indicates that the aperture has a wide opening. The
wider the aperture, the shallower the DOF becomes. Conversely, a high
aperture value indicates that the aperture has a narrow opening. The
narrower the aperture, the deeper the DOF becomes.
You can create a photo with a shallow DOF by using a telescopic lens or by
selecting a low aperture value. You can create a photo with a deep DOF by
using a wide angle lens or by selecting a high aperture value.

Concepts in Photography
DOF depends on focal length
The longer the focal length, the shallower the DOF. A telescopic lens with
a longer focal length will capture a photo with a shallow DOF better than a
lens with a shorter focal length.
DOF depends on the distance between the subject and the
camera
The shorter the distance between the subject and the camera, the
shallower the DOF is. Therefore, taking a photo close to a subject generally
results in a photo with a shallow DOF.

You can press the Preview button to get an idea of what your shot will look
like before shooting. The camera adjusts the aperture to the predefined
settings and shows the results on the screen. Set the function of the
Preview button to Optical Preview. (p. 192)
Composition
The way that objects are arranged in a photo is referred to as its
composition. A good composition emphasizes the photo’s subjects
by drawing attention to them and by balancing them with the other
elements in the photo.
Following the rule of thirds is one method that usually results in good
compositions.
Rule of Thirds
To use the rule of thirds, divide the image into a 3x3 pattern of equal
rectangles.
To compose photos that best emphasize the subject, make sure the
subject is located at one of the corners of the center rectangle.
25
Concepts in Photography
Using the rule of thirds will create photos with stable and compelling
compositions. Below are a few examples.
Photos with two subjects
If your subject is in one corner of the photo, it creates an unbalanced
composition. You can stabilize the photo by capturing a second subject in
the opposite corner to balance the weight of the photo.
Subject 2

When taking landscape photos, centering the horizon will create an

Flash guide number
Flash
Light is one of the most important components in photography. However,
you will not always have enough of light in all situations. Making use of a
flash allows you to compensate for the lack of light and create a variety of
effects.
The flash, also known as a strobe or speed light, provides adequate
exposure in low-light conditions. It is also useful in light-abundant
situations. For example, you can use the flash to provide light when a
subject is in shadow or use it to capture clearly both the subject and the
background under backlit conditions.
The model number of a flash refers to the flash’s power, and the maximum
amount of light created is represented by a value known as the “guide
number“. A flash with a higher guide number emits a larger amount
of light than a flash with a lower guide number. The guide number is
calculated by multiplying the distance from the flash to the subject by the
aperture value when the ISO sensitivity is set to 100.
Guide number = Flash to Subject Distance X Aperture value
Aperture value = Guide number/Flash to Subject Distance
Flash to Subject Distance = Guide number/Aperture value
If you know the flash’s guide number, you can estimate an appropriate
flash-to-subject distance when setting the flash manually. For example, if a
flash has a guide number of GN 20 and is 4 meters away from the subject,
the optimal aperture value is F5.0.

Concepts in Photography
Bounce Photography
Bounce photography refers to the method of bouncing light off of the
ceiling or walls so that the light spreads evenly over the subject. Normally,
photos captured with the flash may appear unnatural and cast shadows.
Subjects in photos captured with bounce photography cast no shadows
and look smooth due to evenly spread light.

Shooting modes
Two simple shooting modes—Auto and Smart mode—help you capture
photos with numerous automatic settings. Additional modes allow for
greater customization of settings.
t Auto mode
In Auto mode, the camera recognizes surrounding conditions and
automatically adjusts factors that contribute to exposure, including
shutter speed, aperture value, metering, White Balance, and exposure
compensation. As the camera controls most of the functions, some
shooting functions are limited. This mode is useful for capturing quick
snapshots with the least amount of adjustment.
Do not rotate the mode dial if the mode dial lock button is pressed. Doing so
may damage the camera.

factors, such as camera shake, lighting, and distance to the subject.
If the camera does not recognize an appropriate scene mode, it uses the
default settings for the Auto mode.
Even if it detects a face, the camera may not select a portrait mode
depending on the subject’s position or lighting.
Even if you use a tripod, the camera may not detect the tripod mode ( ) if
the subject is moving.

When formatting a memory card, always format using the camera. When
you format a memory card with a capacity of 32 GB or less on the camera,
the file system is changed to FAT32. When you format a memory card with a
capacity of 64 GB or more, the file system is changed to exFAT. If you format
on another camera or a PC, you can lose files on the card or cause a change in
the capacity of the card.
When using a memory card formatted as FAT32, the camera will automatically
stop recording when the size of a video exceeds 4 GB, even if the maximum
recording time (29 minutes and 59 seconds) has not been reached. Using
a memory card formatted as exFAT allows you to record a video for the
maximum recording time (29 minutes and 59 seconds), regardless of the
video‘s file size.
If you use a slow writing memory card, the recording of your movie can
be interrupted because the card cannot process data at the rate the video
is being shot. If this occurs, replace the card with a faster memory card or
reduce the video size (for example, from 1280X720 to 640X480).
When recording a UHD video, we recommend you use a memory card with a
write speed greater than 30 MB/sec.
When you press the video recording button, intelli-zoom turns off.
Videos can be darker than photos recorded at the same ISO sensitivity. If the

While you are pressing [Shutter] halfway, the camera automatically
detects the subject‘s movements and switches between Single AF and
Continuous AF. It fixes the focus on the subject when the subject gets far
from the camera (Single AF). It continues to focus automatically when
the subject gets closer to the camera (Continuous AF). This mode is
recommended for shooting subjects that are moving unpredictably.
You can manually focus on a subject by rotating the focus ring on the lens.
The MF Assist function lets you easily bring a subject into focus. While you
are rotating the focus ring, the focus area is magnified. When you use the
Focus Peaking function, the color you selected appears on the focused
subject. This mode is recommended for shooting a subject similar in color
to the background, a night scene, or fireworks.
This option is not available when recording a video.
If you use this function, you cannot set Touch AF, AF Area, and Link AE to AF

Metering
The metering mode refers to the way in which a camera measures the
quantity of light.
The camera measures the amount of light in a scene, and in many of its
modes, uses the measurement to adjust various settings. For example,
if a subject looks darker than its actual color, the camera captures an
overexposed photo of it. If a subject looks lighter than its actual color, the
camera captures an underexposed photo of it.
Multi
The Multi mode calculates the amount of light in multiple areas. When
light is sufficient or insufficient, the camera adjusts the exposure by
averaging the overall brightness of the scene. This mode is suitable for
general photos.
The brightness and overall mood of the photo can also be affected by how
the camera measures the amount of light. Select an appropriate setting for
a shooting condition.
To set a metering
option,
In Shooting mode, press [N] ĺ an option.

Center-weighted
Spot
The Center-weighted mode calculates a broader area than the Spot mode
does. It sums up the amount of light in the center portion of the shot
(60–80 %) and that of the rest of the shot (20–40 %). It is recommended
for situations where there is a slight difference in brightness between a
subject and its background or where the area around a subject is large
compared to the overall composition of the photo.
The Spot mode calculates the amount of light in the center. When you
capture a photo in conditions where there is a strong backlight behind a
subject, the camera adjusts the exposure to shoot the subject correctly. For
example, when you select the Multi mode in a strong backlight condition,
the camera calculates that the overall amount of light is abundant, which
results in a darker photo. The Spot mode can prevent this situation as it
calculates the amount of light in a designated area.
As the photo illustrates, the subject is in a bright area while the
background is dark. The Spot mode is recommended for a situation like
this where there is a large difference in the exposure values between the
subject and the background.

Network connection tips
• You must insert a memory card to use the Wi-Fi features.
• The quality of the network connection will be determined by the AP.
• The further the distance between your camera and the AP, the longer it
will take to connect to the network.
• If a nearby device is using the same radio frequency signal as your
camera, it may interrupt your connection.
• If your AP name is not in English, the camera may not be able to locate
the device or the name may appear incorrectly.
• For network settings or a password, contact your network administrator
or network service provider.
• If a WLAN requires authentication from the service provider, you may not
be able to connect to it. To connect to the WLAN, contact your network
service provider.
• Depending on the encryption type, the number of digits in the password
may differ.
• A WLAN connection may not be possible in all surroundings.
• The camera may display a WLAN enabled printer on the AP List. You
cannot connect to a network via a printer.
• You cannot connect your camera to a network and a TV simultaneously.
• Connecting to a network may incur additional charges. Costs will vary
based on the conditions in your contract.
• If you cannot connect to a WLAN, try another AP from the available AP
list.
• A login page may appear when you select free WLANs provided by some
network service providers. Enter your ID and password to connect to
the WLAN. For information about registering or the service, contact the
network service providers.
• Be cautious when you enter personal information for an AP connection.
Do not enter any payment or credit card information on your camera.
The manufacturer is not liable for any problem caused by entering such
information.
• Available network connections may differ by country.
• The WLAN feature of your camera must comply with radio transmission
laws in your region. To ensure compliance, use the WLAN feature only in
the country where you purchased the camera.
• The process for adjusting network settings may differ, depending on
network conditions.
• Do not access a network that you are not authorized to use.
• Before you connect to a network, ensure your battery is fully charged.
• Files that you transfer to another device may not be supported by the
device. In this case, use a computer to play back the files.
• Network speed may differ depending on the Wi-Fi specification
supported by the AP.

We recommend that you use the electronic shutter to minimize camera shake
when using a telephoto lens or taking a close-up photo.
When you use a large diameter lens and a fast shutter speed, a “bokeh“ effect
(an aesthetic blur in out-of-focus areas) may be affected by the subject and
the shooting conditions. To make the bokeh effect appear correctly, set the
E-Shutter to Off.
When you change the E-Shutter settings, the first curtain of the shutter is
adjusted and you will hear a noise as the shutter adjusts. This is normal when
preparing the camera to operate the E-Shutter.

• Remove the batteries from your camera when storing it for an extended
period. Installed batteries may leak or corrode over time and cause
serious damage to your camera. Storing the camera for extended
periods with the battery installed causes the battery to discharge. You
may not be able to recharge a fully discharged battery.
• When you do not use the camera for an extended period (3 months or
more), check the battery and recharge it regularly. If you let the battery
discharge continually, its capacity and life may decrease, which can lead
to a malfunction, fire, or explosion.

Maintaining the camera
Battery precautions
Protect batteries, chargers, and memory cards from damage.
Prevent batteries from making contact with metal objects, as this can
create a connection between the + and – terminals of your battery and
lead to temporary or permanent battery damage and may cause a fire or
electric shock.
Notes about charging the battery
• If the status lamp is off, ensure that the battery is inserted correctly.
• If the camera is on while the battery is charging, the battery may not
fully charge. Turn off the camera before charging the battery.
• Do not use your camera when you are charging the battery. This may
cause a fire or electric shock.
• Do not pull the power supply cord to disconnect the plug from the
power outlet, as this may cause a fire or electric shock.
• If you connect the camera to an external power source when the battery
is depleted, using high energy-consuming functions will cause the
camera to turn off. To use the camera normally, recharge the battery.
• If you reconnect the power cable when the battery is fully charged, the
status lamp turns on for approximately 30 minutes.
• Using the flash or recording videos depletes the battery quickly. Charge
the battery fully before using the camera.
• If the status lamp blinks in red, reconnect the cable, or remove the
battery and insert it again.
• If you charge the battery when the cable is overheated or the
temperature is too high, the status lamp may blink in red. Charging will
start when the battery cools down.
• Overcharging batteries may shorten battery life. After charging is
finished, disconnect the cable from your camera.
• Do not bend or place heavy objects on the AC cable. Doing so may
damage the cable.
• Let the battery charge for at least 10 minutes before turning on the
camera.

Installing Adobe Photoshop Lightroom
Using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom
1
Insert Adobe Photoshop Lightroom DVD-ROM into your PC.
2
Select a language.

Follow the on-screen instructions.
Photos captured by a camera are often converted to JPEG format and
stored in the memory according to the settings of the camera at the time
of shooting. RAW files are not converted to JPEG format and are stored
in the memory without any changes. With Adobe Photoshop Lightroom,
you can calibrate exposures, White Balances, tones, contrasts, and colors
of photos. You can also edit JPEG or TIFF files as well as RAW files. For more
information, refer to the program guide.
• If you cannot open Samsung RAW files (SRW) with Adobe Photoshop
Lightroom, convert the file format to DNG with the Samsung DNG Converter
or update the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom program.
• In Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, an image’s brightness, color, and other effects
may be displayed differently. This occurs because the original camera settings
and options applied during image capture are removed to prepare the image
for processing by Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

Anaglyph mode
AEB (Auto Exposure Bracket)
Anaglyph mode enables a 3D effect to be applied to images when they
are viewed through optical devices such as special glasses. The camera
captures two separate images in red and cyan (chromatically opposite
colors). The images are combined and when viewed through special
glasses, with red and cyan colored filters, a 3D effect is achieved.
This feature automatically captures several images at different exposures
to help you capture a properly-exposed image.
AEL/AFL (Auto Exposure Lock/Auto Focus Lock)
These features help you to lock the exposure or focus settings for a subject.
AP (Access Point)
An access point is a device that allows wireless devices to connect to a
wired network.
AF (Auto Focus)
A system that automatically focuses the camera lens on the subject. Your
camera uses contrast to focus automatically.
Ad-Hoc network
An ad-hoc network is a temporary connection for sharing files or an
internet connection and between computers and devices.
AMOLED (Active-matrix organic light-emitting diode)/
LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)
AdobeRGB
AMOLED is a very thin and light visual display that does not require
backlighting. LCD is a visual display commonly used in consumer
electronics. An LCD display needs a separate backlight, such as CCFL or
LED lights, to reproduce colors.
Adobe RGB is used for commercial printing and has a larger color range
than sRGB. Its wider range of colors helps you easily edit photos on a
computer.

Glossary
Aperture
Color space
The aperture controls the amount of light that reaches the camera’s sensor.
The range of colors that the camera can identify and reproduce in photos.
Bluetooth
Color temperature
This feature allows you to exchange files with other devices.
Color Temperature is a measurement in degrees Kelvin (K) that indicates
the hue of a specific type of light source. As the color temperature
increases, the color of the light source has a more bluish quality. As the
color temperature decreases, the color of the light source has a more
reddish quality. At 5,500 degrees Kelvin, the color of the light source is
similar to the sun at midday.
Camera shake (Blur)
If the camera is moved while the shutter is open, the entire image may
appear blurred. This occurs more often when the shutter speed is slow.
Prevent camera shake by raising the sensitivity, using the flash, or using
a faster shutter speed. Alternatively, use a tripod or the OIS function to
stabilize the camera. To reduce camera shake while recording a video, you
can use the DIS function.
Composition
Composition in photography means arranging objects in a photo. Usually,
abiding by the rule of thirds leads to a good composition.
Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is a technology that allows you to store data on remote
servers and to use it from a device with Internet access.
DCF (Design rule for Camera File system)
A specification that defines a file format and file system for digital cameras
created by the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries
Association (JEITA).

Depth of field
Exif (Exchangeable Image File Format)
The distance between the nearest and farthest points that can be
acceptably focused in a photograph. Depth of field varies with lens
aperture, focal length, and distance from the camera to the subject.
Selecting a smaller aperture, for example, will increase the depth of field
and blur the background of a composition.
A specification that defines an image file format for digital cameras created
by the Japan Electronic Industries Development Association (JEIDA).
Electronic first curtain shutter
Exposure
The amount of light allowed to reach the camera’s sensor. Exposure is
controlled by a combination of the shutter speed, the aperture value, and
ISO sensitivity.
The sensor acts as the first curtain of the shutter. With this function,
the shutter reacts faster because no process is needed to operate the
mechanical curtain.
Flash
EV (Exposure Value)
A speed light that helps to create adequate exposure in low-light
conditions.
All the combinations of the camera’s shutter speed and lens aperture that
result in the same exposure.
Focal length
EV Compensation
The distance from the middle of the lens to its focal point (in millimeters).
Longer focal lengths result in narrower angles of view and the subject is
magnified. Shorter focal lengths result in wider angles of view.
This feature allows you to quickly adjust the exposure value measured by
the camera, in limited increments, to improve the exposure of your photos.

Histogram
ISO sensitivity
A graphical representation of the brightness of an image. The horizontal
axis represents the brightness and the vertical axis represents the number
of pixels. High points at the left (too dark) and right (too bright) on the
histogram indicate a photo that is improperly exposed.
The sensitivity of the camera to light, based on the equivalent film speed
used in a film camera. At higher ISO settings, the camera can use a higher
shutter speed to reduce blur caused by camera shake and low light.
However, images with a high ISO setting are more susceptible to noise.
HEVC
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)
High-efficiency Video Coding format, established by the international
standard organizations ISO-IEC and ITU-T. This codec is capable of
providing good video quality at low bit rates.
A lossy method of compression for digital images. JPEG images are
compressed to reduce their overall file size with minimal deterioration of
the image resolution.
Image sensor
Metering
The physical part of a digital camera that contains a photosite for each
pixel in the image. Each photosite records the brightness of the light that
strikes it during an exposure. Common sensor types are CCD (Chargecoupled Device) and CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor).
The metering refers to the way in which the camera measures the quantity
of light to set the exposure.
MF (Manual Focus)
IP (Internet protocol) address
A system that manually focuses the camera lens on the subject.
You can use the focus ring to focus on a subject.
An IP address is a unique number that is assigned to every device that is
connected to the internet.

MJPEG (Motion JPEG)
NTSC (National Television System Committee)
A video format which is compressed as a JPEG image.
A video color encoding standard used most commonly in Japan, North
America, the Philippines, South America, South Korea, and Taiwan.
MPO (Multi Picture Object)
An image file format that contains multiple images in a file. An MPO file
provides a 3D effect on MPO-compatible displays, such as 3D TVs or 3D
monitors.
Optical zoom
This is a general zoom which can enlarge images with a lens and does not
reduce the quality of images.
Noise
PAL (Phase Alternate Line)
Misinterpreted pixels in a digital image that may appear as misplaced or
random, bright pixels. Noise usually occurs when photos are shot with a
high ISO setting or when the sensitivity is automatically set in a dark place.
A video color encoding standard used in numerous countries throughout
Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
Quality
NFC (Near Field Communication)
NFC is a set of standards for radio communication at very close proximity.
You can use NFC-enabled devices to activate features or exchange data
with other devices.
An expression of the rate of compression used in a digital image. Higher
quality images have a lower rate of compression, which usually results in a
larger file size.

RAW (CCD raw data)
Vignetting
The original, unprocessed data, collected directly from the camera’s image
sensor. White Balance, contrast, saturation, sharpness, and other data can
be manipulated with editing software before the image is compressed into
a standard file format.
A reduction of an image’s brightness or saturation at the periphery (outer
edges) compared to the center of the image. Vignetting can draw interest
to subjects positioned in the center of an image.
White Balance (Color balance)
Resolution
The number of pixels present in a digital image. High resolution images
contain more pixels and typically show more detail than low resolution
images.
An adjustment of the intensities of colors (typically the primary colors red,
green, and blue), in an image. The goal of adjusting the White Balance, or
color balance, is to correctly render the colors in an image.
Wi-Fi
Shutter speed
Shutter speed refers to the amount of time it takes to open and close the
shutter. It is an important factor in the brightness of a photo, as it controls
the amount of light which passes through the aperture before it reaches
the image sensor. A fast shutter speed allows less time to let in light. The
photo becomes darker, but subjects in motion freeze more easily.
Wi-Fi is a technology that allows electronic devices to exchange data
wirelessly over a network.
WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup)
WPS is a technology that secures wireless home networks.
sRGB (Standard RGB)
International standard of color space established by the IEC (International
Electrotechnical Commission). This is the defined color space for PC
monitors and is also used as the standard color space for Exif.
