The lenses on typical digital cameras simply do not provide enough magnification to deliver a real close-up view of distant subjects. Blowing up the image (cropping and enlarging) using computer software simulates a more powerful lens, but with a great reduction in quality. Our ImageView Digital Imaging Binoculars capture the image through their 8x camera optics. This means your photo subjects will actually appear eight times closer (not possible with a “3x” or “5x” zoom camera lens), and will be much sharper than what you get by trying to “blow up” part of the photo from a regular digital camera. The comparison below shows the dramatic difference. 10x 25mm 111211 VGA still pictures 8MB internal memory SD card slot 1.25” color LCD to review images NO MAGNIFICATION (picture taken with typical digital camera) 10x 25mm 111026 VGA still pictures 8MB internal memory SD card slot MODEL MAGNIFICATION X OBJ.

Like the film camera, digital imaging uses a lens to focus the image on a focal plane. While the film camera relies on film to capture the image, the digital uses a sensor. As light strikes the array of picture elements (pixels) that make up the sensor, it’s converted to a current that’s passed on to a digital or A-D converter. From the A-D converter, algorithms are applied to the signal, converting it to a digital image file. Digital Imaging Sensors These are Silicon chips consisting of millions of tiny photo diodes, which convert light into an electronic signal. A CMOS sensor is used in Bushnell imaging products. File Compression or “Quality” In addition to high- and low-resolution settings, many digital cameras provide options for selecting the amount of file compression applied when photos are stored in memory. Higher-quality settings use less compression, but take up more storage space. Flash Memory Flash memory is “non-volatile,” meaning it retains the photo files and user settings even if the power source is removed for a long period of time. Many cameras have electronic components that preserve the memory contents for a few minutes to allow time to change batteries. However, it’s always wise to download photos before changing batteries or storing the camera away. Interpolation A method of increasing the number of pixels in an image after it is photographed. The pixels actually captured by the camera’s sensor are rapidly analyzed by software that creates and adds new similar pixels to the photo file. Some Bushnell® imaging optics provide user options for higher interpolated resolution settings. Pixels and Megapixels Pixels are the tiny squares of color – like dots on a newspaper photo or grains on a photographic print – that make up a digital image. The higher the pixel count, the higher the photographic resolution. A megapixel (MP) equals one million pixels. Resolution and File Size The “default” automatic setting on digital cameras works fine in most situations, but some cameras will also let the user override “auto” and adjust one or more of the following if necessary or preferred: The number of pixels used to produce a digital photo is the primary factor that determines resolution, or ability to reproduce fine detail. More pixels equal higher resolution, and a larger data file. EV (Exposure Value): Also known as exposure compensation. Allows setting deliberate under- or overexposure by a fine amount, such as “+1.5 EV” (one and a half steps overexposed). Storage Cards: Digital “Film” ISO (Sensitivity): As with film, low ISO numbers (100–200) will produce the highest quality but require the most light. Higher ISO settings will allow photos in low light without flash, or faster shutter speeds to stop action, but with increasingly noticeable digital “noise.” These are small removable “flash” memory devices used to hold image data from a digital camera, reducing or eliminating the need for high-capacity internal memory. All Bushnell digital imaging optics have a slot for an SD (Secure Digital) card, the most common type currently used. Sync Focus Now on our ImageView spotting scope and Instant Replay binoculars, the Sync Focus feature is a parallel focus system that sharpens the digital image and the image through the scope’s or binos’ optics simultaneously. The synchronized light path also permits the user to switch between viewing through the camera’s LCD and the scope or binocular’s eyepiece. USB Mass Storage Cameras with USB mass storage don’t need a driver for Windows XP or Vista. Connect the camera to your PC, and it will be identified as a “Removable Disk,” just as if it were an external hard drive. Your photo files are stored in a folder on this “disk,” and can be copied or moved to the location of your choice or opened directly from the camera within your photo software. 128 Camera Settings White Balance: Auto white balance identifies a white reference point (wall, clouds, etc.) in a scene and applies overall color correction if needed, so whites retain a neutral appearance. If this produces poor results, presets for daylight, cloudy, tungsten and fluorescent lighting are often available. Special Features Self Timer: When selected, the photo is taken following a short delay after the shutter button is pressed. Used to prevent camera shake, or to include yourself in the photo. Sequential Shot: Shoots a quick burst of multiple frames (usually 3–5 in a row), to increase chances of capturing the action. Movie Mode: Allows the camera to shoot and play back short video clips. These are usually stored in the common “avi” format, and can be played on any computer with Windows Media Player, QuickTime, or other software.
