Types of photo image stabilizer and their description

Cameras are changing significantly under the influence of new technologies.

Today, they weigh much less than earlier models. In this regard, there is a risk of getting a fuzzy image due to the inability to keep the static position of the lens.

The image stabilizer should solve this problem (this device may be called a “vibration compensator”in some manufacturers’ devices).

With a movable matrix;
Electronic (digital).
Optical stabilizer
It is mounted in a lens block of the lens controlled by special sensors.

The cost of an optical stabilizer is quite high, but it also has a significant advantage: the stabilized image that falls on the matrix is transmitted to the viewfinder and the automatic focus system.

Also, this device does not reduce the quality of the photo and works perfectly with any increase.

What it affects is the size of the camera and its energy consumption (increases them).

System with a movable matrix
We are talking, for example, about”Anti-shake”.

The stabilizer is fixed on the moving platform. It is considered less effective than the previous type.

It sends an unstabilized image to the viewfinder and autofocus system.

And with a significant focal length, it loses effectiveness altogether. This is due to the fact that in this case, the matrix becomes necessary to move so quickly that it can not keep up with the movement of the image.

Electronic (digital) camera stabilization system
An electronic stabilizer (or vibration suppressor) means that only the image is converted by the processor. The digital device is compatible with all lenses.

An image of a larger size than we can see in the photo is taken, and when the camera moves, the visible part of the image is able to move in the opposite direction on the matrix, but within the actual image.

The negative property is that it does not work well with digital magnification. This is manifested in the form of interference in the picture.

Having considered all the varieties, we can conclude that the optical stabilizer is the best option.

If you are not limited in money and do not have strict requirements for the size of the camera, choose it.

Tonal range values
The tone of a photographic image is determined by the proportions in which black, white, and gray tones are correlated. Degrees of tonality in photography The human eye recognizes up…

Light falling on the photodiodes of the digital camera matrix is converted into an electrical signal. For this to happen, the number of photons that hit each individual photodiode must…
