Digital Cameras
Digital cameras allow computer users to take pictures and store the photographed images
digitally instead of on traditional film. With some digital cameras, a user downloads the
stored pictures from the digital camera to a computer using special software included with
the camera. With others, the camera stores the pictures directly on a floppy disk or on a
PC Card. A user then copies the pictures to a computer by inserting the floppy disk into a
disk drive or the PC Card into a PC Card slot (Chambers and Norton 134).Once stored on a
computer, the pictures can be edited with photo-editing software, printed, faxed, sent via
electronic mail, included in another document, or posted to a Web site for everyone to
see.

Three basic types of digital cameras ate studio cameras, field cameras, and
point-and-shoot cameras (Shelly Cashman Series® Microsoft Word 2000 Project 2). The most
expensive and highest quality of the three, a studio camera, is a stationary camera use
for professional studio work. Photojournalists frequently use field cameras because they
are portable and have a variety of lenses and other attachments. As with the studio
camera, a field camera can be quite expensive.

Reliable and lightweight, the point and shoot camera provides acceptable quality
photographic images for the home or small business user. A point-and-shoot camera enables
these users to add pictures to personalized greeting cards, a computerized photo album, a

The final image is analog, which means it is composed of continuous gradients that are analogous t
