Parts of the Camera

If you break down your camera into it simplest building blocks you have

  • The body – this is the heart of the camera, it keeps unwanted light out until the shutter is opened.
  • Shutter – the device that allows light into the camera to hit the sensor.
  • Viewfinder – how you frame your pictures.
  • Lens – gathers the light and focuses it to form an image on the sensor.
  • Memory Card – where captured images are stored.

Thanks for reading, keep on shooting, and, as always I look forward to your continued support.
