Presentation Transcript
  • Digital Imaging is used every day in life.
  • Has become less expensive and easier to use than film.
  • Accomplished with a beam splitter
    • One pixel assigned for each color
bayer filter pattern
Bayer Filter Pattern
  • Alternates rows of green and blue, and green and red pixels
    • Twice as many green as red and blue
color space
Color Space
  • Defines how colors are mixed together to form a specific color
    • Two types: RGB and CYMK
dynamic range
Dynamic Range

Good Dynamic Range Poor Dynamic range


Nearest Neighbor interpolation Bilinear interpolation

Bicubic interpolation Fractal interpolation

  • The level of detail captured by a digital camera
    • Measured in Pixels
    • Limited in display to the level of the monitor.
    • Higher the resolution, the larger the image size that can be reproduced.
  • Interference caused by electronics
    • Usually the quality of the sensors and camera determines noise level
    • Compression of files increases noise
white balance
White Balance
  • Used to compensate for different lighting conditions
    • Fluorescent will normally cause a greenish hue
    • Halogen and mercury vapor will cause an orange-yellow hue
    • Normally automatically adjusted in the camera
file formats
File Formats
  • Tagged Image File Format (TIFF)
    • Better compression format
    • Doesn’t lose data in compression
    • Requires adequate processor and memory
  • Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG)
    • Most commonly used format
    • Used mainly for natural photos
    • As compression increases, quality declines
  • Variety of Types
    • Files Normally stored in JPEG format
    • Compact Flash, Smart Media, Memory Stick
    • Images are transferred to the computer for storage
