What You (Probably) Don’t Know About Digital Photography…And Should

Posted on: 25 February 2008

Photopreneur has done it again. For those who use DSLRs (and that’s pretty much a lot of folks out there) you really should know the differences between film and digital. There are the obvious differences but Photopreneur goes on to explain some other very important differences like:

  1. The differences between saving in JPEG and RAW.
  2. Why sensor size matters.
  3. Did you know that commercial photography has extremely high quality demands that may prohibit hobbyists.
  4. Few digital cameras can compete with the resolution of digital cameras.
  5. Numbers 3 and 4 are likely why…Many leading photographers still shoot on film.
  6. You can’t have too much resolution.
  7. How come the number of megapixels listed for your camera isn’t really the number of megapixels in your camera?
  8. Keep in mind that megabytes are not the same thing as megpixels.
Jump on over to Photopreneur to read the complete article. It’s a very good read.
