Thinking of a new photography phone in hard budget? We got your back. Here, we explain how actually the mobile photography works and some best mobiles under Rs.7000.
Ever wondered what actually happens when you captured the photo? This process is pretty simple but highly technical. The moment you capture a sight, the lens (combination of pixels along with its aperture) lets the light get in and hit the sensors within. Upon receiving the lighted image, sensor converts the image data into an electronic form and transmits the same to relevant software for processing it. And then, the processor filter out the noise from actual data and present the availabile picture onto your screen. And all this process happens in just a blink of eye!
Great isn’t it. In this era of pixel wars, smartphone OEMs are attracting customers just by showing off
their Megapixels! But there are other features needs to be considered along with MP. Here are they.
It’s the size of pinhole of your lens. The higher the aperture, the more light gets in. With more light falling on sensor, there’s a lot of details to be taken and processed for best image quality. Sometimes, having a low aperture too can help. Situations like night or dark where you’d be using low-light photography needs lowest aperture (hole) to take just required details.
ISO is the sensitivity of camera and shutter time is the time that keeps lens open for shot. All these features combined, acquires light reflected on object and passes onto sensor. And the sensor, which is a bed of pixels, processes it with the help of hardware and software and produces the image. By this, you should realise, number of megapixels is the last thing you need to worry about. Quality of lens, aperture, sensor etc plays crucial role in determining the picture quality.
With all that introduction being given, we’ll now see the best smartphones under Rs.7,000 for mobile picturing.
