DSLR stands for Digital Single Lens Camera which combines the increased flexibility along with an improved picture taking with a larger size. It lets you change lenses and also set exposure and focus manually which takes a great photo. Also, the image sensor inDSLR cameras are bigger than those found in normal point and shoot cameras. So they also deliver cleaner, sharper and more dynamic photos.They also have a very fast response tie and continuous shooting modes.

What is the ideal resolution for a good photo?

1 user answered

This depends on your purpose. For example, if you want to post this photo on the web, then you will need a resolution of around 640x480 which would provide a decent nice and clear pic. But suppose you want more details, then a resolution of 1600 x 1200 to 2048 x 1536 should cover most purposes.

Of course, if you wish to make large prints like 8inch by 10inch, you should consider going for a resolution of 3072 or 2048 or even higher. Higher resolution is also important if you plan to crop out part of the image and then print the cropped part.

You will need a card with a high memory. In addition to this, keep a spare card with you as well. Coming to the speed class it is essential that the photo is immediately transferred to the memory card. So ake sure that your memory card has a speed class of at least 6 or higher.

Why do I need to buy a camera when there is already a smartphone on my own phone?

While a phone camera gives you the ability to take photos on the go and anywhere, you also lose out on a lot of things. 
  • The photos you get are often blurry and grained especially during the nighttime. 
  • In addition zooming in further compromises the image quality. 
  • So using a smartphone if you want a good picture then you have to take them up close which cannot necessarily always be done.

In comparison, even a simple point and shoot camera offer more benefits.
  • They offer a much clearer picture and colour than a smartphone camera. This is even in low lighting conditions. You don't need to be particularly skilled in using them.
  • Point and shoot cameras are small and slim and are highly portable. So just like a smartphone, you can take them anywhere.
  • These cameras have a higher zoom so that you can get a much better shot of distant objects.
  • Noways these phones even come with WiFi and NFC allowing for an instant transfer of photos.

Can the materials that a speaker is made from affect its sound quality?

1 user answered

Yes. For example for a tweeter that is made from ceramic or metal, the sound is very clear and crisp but for some people, it is too harsh. Tweeters that is made from silk sacrifice the accuracy but delivers a much smoother and warmer sound. Some woofers are made from paper so that they can provide a very fast response that is needed for accurate sound. 

So most high-end speakers that are made nowadays use a combination of hard materials like metals and ceramics along with light materials paper & textiles.

How is a 2-way speaker different from a 3-way speaker?

1 user answered

Ram Kumar, Rajnandgaon

For a 2-way speaker, the crossover splits the frequency band into 2 ranges. The bass frequencies go to the woofer systems while the treble frequencies go the tweeter.

For a 3-way speaker though the frequency band has 3 ranges, the third one being the middle frequencies which are sent to a third driver that called the midrange. The 3-way speakers need more room for drivers because of this. So most of these speakers are floor standing models.

For this, you require a multi-room music system. For this, you can either install an integrated system with in-wall wire as well as controls or you will have to set up a wireless system.

Yes. In fact, there are a lot of folks out there who prefer this composition of bookshelf speakers and sub system since they don't take as much of space when compared to a tower speaker. But you will have the tweak the crossover in order to get the ideal sound.

Cleaning your speaker not only helps them keep looking good but they are also quite essential since dust and dirt can otherwise damage the internal circuitry of your device. So given below are some tips that you can follow for the cleaning and maintenance of your speaker.

  • To start off, before you clean your speaker, make sure that they are turned off.
  • Using wood cleaners that contain silicone in them can leave stain and residue marks on your speaker. So it is always better to use a dry cloth to do the cleaning. You can also dampen it with water before cleaning.
  • Never spray water directly on the speaker. Instead of doing that spray water directly onto the speakers.
  • Make sure to unplug and replug the cables even once in a while so as to ensure that the connections remain clean.
