Focus and Zoom technology


Ralf Jurrien : 2007-03-09 19:49:00
Focus and Zoom technology : Over the past ten years, photographic cameras have almost completely transitioned from silver halide film to electronic sensors. But the other key component - the lens - has remained largely unchanged... until now. The mobile phone industry, with its huge demand for embedded cameras, is driving a broad set of new requirements for miniaturized, rugged, low-cost, low-power, high-performance lens and actuator combinations. As they come to market, the superior value proposition of those optical assemblies will threaten to displace traditional optics in cameras of all types. As a result, the business of designing and making lenses is undergoing its most fundamental upheaval since the Renaissance.

SLR sensor cleaning


Ralf Jurrien : 2007-03-09 15:42:00
SLR sensor cleaning : Changing lenses, dusty atmospheres and the day-to-day challenges a DSLR faces mean that before long those tell tale-black splodges appear on that stunning sunset you've waited to capture - You've got dust on the sensor. Dust is nothing new for photographers, but sensor modules on digital cameras are extremely delicate, and one wrong move could land you responsible for some serious repair or, worse, replacement costs. The solution is Visible Dust, a cleaning system which actually lifts the dust away from the sensor, instead of simply moving it around, and making the problem worse, like traditional brushes. The majority of dust found on sensors is dry dust. The Arctic Butterfly Sensor Brush is in its element here.
