Simple methods for Picture recovery from Digital Camera

Digital camera is one of the newest inventions in the field of digital photography. Digital camera is basically used to create digitalized images with sharp features and great clarity. Digital camera stores images digitally instead of recording them on the film. But compared to film based camera, digital camera cannot produce infinite resolution of pictures due to certain reasons such as:

  • Limited  amount of memory of the camera can affect the quality of the image
  • The optical resolution of the digitizing mechanism
  • The resolution of the final output device

Besides these drawbacks of digital camera over film camera, the most advantageous point of digital camera is that making pictures is both inexpensive and fast as it doesn’t rely on the film for any kind of processing. Now days, most of the digital cameras are also able to capture sound and video, in addition to still pictures. The capturing process in digital camera is accomplished by use of photo censor. All the advanced digital cameras use CCDs (Charged Couple Device) to capture images, whereas some of the newer and inexpensive digital cameras use CMOS (Complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor) photo sensor. Types of digital cameras are divided on the basis of their usage and configuration. Basically, the most common types of digital cameras are Compact digital cameras, Digital single lens reflex cameras (DSLR), Bridge cameras, Digital rangefinders, Electronic viewfinder (EVF), and Line-scan cameras. JPEG is the most common picture file format supported by every digital camera for storing image files. Besides this, Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) and PNG (Portable Network Graphics) are other two picture file format which is used almost every digital camera for recording and storing any picture. Moreover, digital cameras are highly compatible by all the popular video files such as AVI, MPEG, DV, MOV (often containing motion JPEG), WMV, and ASF (basically the same as WMV). Latest and hi-tech digital cameras are compatible by MP4 video file format. This format is based on the QuickTime format and uses newer compression algorithms in order to increase the recording time within the same space.
