When people say you have an iPhone, what’s the need for a camera? Do they really mean it? The image clarity in iPhones is so darn good that there’s no need for a camera. Many people agree with this but the professional photographers don’t agree with this statement. They get into the technical details and argue that phones don’t have large enough sensors and hence the images captured on phones cannot be compared to that of a DSLR or a large sensor camera.
Now, let us understand what large sensors mean and what are the benefits of using a camera with large sensors.
An image sensor is a device that captures light reflected on to it by the lens to create a digital image. So, the larger the sensor, more light it can capture to form the image. Now that we have understood what a sensor is, let us understand some of the advantages they offer.
- High resolution
This is one of the most obvious advantages large sensors have to offer and it is high resolution. Large sensors have the ability to capture more information, which means a greater number of pixels. And pixels determine the resolution of an image. Hence, more number of pixels means greater is the resolution.
- Large sensors offer bigger pixels
Large sensors indicate larger pixels. Larger pixels mean the camera can capture light and colour details with a higher efficiency than in smaller sensor cameras. It also means there will be less noise involved in the image, hence better picture clarity.
- Ability to create large images
Since large sensor cameras capture a lot of information, they can produce very large images of high quality. These large sized images can be printed out nicely and is particularly used in exhibitions, for bill-boards and anything that requires large prints. The advantage is that even with such a large size, there will no loss in quality or detail.
- Ability to easily create more background blur
If you want your viewers to focus on a particular area in the image, then blurring the background can go a long way. That way, you can reduce the distraction and make the image more focussed. But blurring the image can be very difficult in pictures taken on phone camera or in small sensor cameras. But, with a large sensor camera, this result can be easily achieved.
- Large sensors cover a large area
The range of view for a compact camera is very small. Similar is the case with small sensor cameras. Of course, camera manufacturers have introduced wide angle lenses to obtain a larger view but it is still comparatively less than what you could achieve with a large sensor camera. Thus, we can say that large sensor cameras help us cover a maximum range of view.
Data recovery using Yodot data recovery software
No matter whether you use a point and shoot camera, a small sensor or a large sensor camera, one thing is common. They are all subject to data loss at some point or another due to various reasons. It could be due to corruption in the SD card, accidental deletion of images or data loss during image transfer. In all of these situations, you can recover data using Yodot data recovery software.
It is capable of recovering all kinds of images like PNG, JPG, TIFF, GIF, PSD and RAW images. It can recover data from DSLR cameras of various brands as well as from other point and shoot cameras.
