2 Camera equipment > Comparing digital and silver halide camera equipment

Comparing digital and silver halide camera equipment

Advantages of digital are:

  • You get an immediate visual check on results (for example, displayed on a large studio monitor screen).
  • No film or lab costs, or liquid processing in darkrooms.
  • Sensitivity can be altered via ISO speed setting to match a range of lighting conditions.
  • Exposure can be checked using the histogram to ensure correct scene intensity/contrast and to prevent highlights being ‘blown out’.
  • You can erase images, and reuse file storage, on the spot. ll Colour sensitivity is adjustable to suit the colour temperature of your lighting.
  • Camera images can be transmitted elsewhere rapidly and wirelessly.
  • Digital image files can feed direct into a designer’s layout computer – ideal for high-volume work for catalogues, etc.
