It’s been a longer time than I initially anticipated getting this second installment of the Photo Tips series up but you’re getting a 2 for 1 special. :-) This article on still photos and a second one the day after this one’s posted on video. In this article we’re going to talk about some of the issues that people have with compact cameras.
The pixels on the digital sensors of compact cameras are tiny. Obscenely tiny. The pixels on all digital sensors are tiny, for that matter, but particularly so on a compact camera. The sensors in compact cameras and camera phones are smaller than the fingernail on your pinky finger. Imagine cramming 8 or 10 or 12 million pixels into that small an area!
