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?

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.

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.

Are there ways to get around shutter lag?

Try the following:?
  • Choose a camera with manual exposure and focus controls and try to avoid the automatic mode whenever it is possible.
  • Try looking for a continuous shooting and continuous AF option on your camera and use it whenever you want a very responsive and fast photo capture.
  • You can try keeping the shutter button half pressed when you are shooting in the automatic mode. So in this way, the camera will stay focused and will not pause to focus once you push the button.
  • If the issue is with processing then you can look for a camera with a burst mode and then use this for squeezing rapid fire shots this way the camera can store photos much faster in the burst mode than when compared to a regular shooting.
  • Lastly, you could try going for mirrorless or DSLR cameras who have a faster response tie than the regular point and shoot kind of cameras.

In photography, what does the term shutter lag mean?

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.
