Is electric cars a viable technology since their batteries really don't give that much of a mileage per charge?

This must have a been a while back but a lot of technological improvements have been made in automobile technology since the time you talk about.

Take the latest Model S of Electric car manufacturer Tesla for example. At 539 kilometres on a single charge, it is currently the world's longest range electric car in production. This is because of the 100D battery pack in the car which gives the car an additional mileage of 32 kilometres. Additionally, the Model S also has a top speed of 250km/hr and goes from 0-100km/hr in 4.2 seconds.
And did I say it looks gorgeous.

In photography, what does the term Aperture mean?

An aperture of a camera is just like the iris in your eye.  It expands and contracts in order to adjust the amount of light that enters the lens. The aperture is measured in f-stops. The higher the f-stop value the smaller the opening and the lower the amount of light that enters. They are directly related to exposure which allows you to control the amount of light that reaches the camera's image sensor.

In photography what does the term shutter speed mean and how does it affect a photo quality?

1 user answered

Saurabh Bhondekar, Bhilai

It refers to the speed at which a digital camera's shutter exposes its image sensor to light. For example, a shutter speed of 1/60 means that the image sensor would be exposed to light in 1/60th of a second.

So if you can use fast shutter speed to capture a fast moving action. Slow shutter speeds can be used to capture and deliberately blur the subject's movements to emphasize the movement.

What is a white balance in Photography?

It refers to the electronic adjustment of the light levels in order to remove the unrealistic colour tones or hues. Due to this objects that appear as white, in reality, will appear as white in your photos, thus assisting with accurate colour retention. All digital cameras have great white balance settings. Some even have an additional preset level or even custom manual settings which provide a much higher accuracy than in an automatic setting.

In photography, what does the term shutter lag mean?

1 user answered

Ankit Sharma, Bangalore
User, Level 7 Contributor
Shutter lag happens when an automatic camera tries to calculate the proper focus and exposure and then takes the shot as fast as possible. The lag is not technically a shutter lag but happens when the camera stops this recorded image. Once you get familiar with the shutter lag of your camera then you will find it easier to adjust to the lag.

What is the ideal resolution for a good photo?

1 user answered

Ankit Sharma, Bangalore

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.

For camera how much zoom is ideal?

1 user answered

Ram Kumar, Rajnandgaon
User, Level 6 Contributor
Most cameras nowadays have at least 3x zoom which is usually enough for your everyday photos.

Higher zoom like 6x,10x,20x or higher is required when you want to take a picture while being quite a bit of distance away from your subject. But do remember that an additional zoom also means more shaking since an increase in zoom can increase the effects of the camera shake which would make your photos to be blurry. So keep an eye out for optical image stabilisation features along with your zoom since it can counteract the effects of shaking to give very smooth crisp and detailed images.

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.
