Photography is a vast world. The ancestor of the photographic camera was the camera obscura Camera obscura (Latin for “dark room”) uses the natural phenomenon that occurs when an image of a scene at the other side of a screen (or a wall, for instance) is projected through a small hole in the screen to form an inverted image (left to right and upside down) on an inner surface of the camera obscura, opposite to the opening.
The colors, tones and exposures are consistent across all three rear facing cameras and the front facing ‘selfie’ camera – and the image processing is perfectly judged to produce natural looking detail and not the usual over-sharpened, over-smoothed smartphone ‘look’.
Camera monitor : provides an off-camera view of the composition with a brighter and more colorful screen, and typically exposes more advanced tools such as framing guides, focus peaking , zebra stripes , waveform monitors (oftentimes as an “RGB parade”), vectorscopes and false color to highlight areas of the image critical to the photographer.
One of the downsides however is that it doesn’t have an external microphone socket and that is very much in common with most cameras in this category – though ironically its predecessor, the Nikon D3300, does have an external microphone socket and I would say that if you’re going to shoot a lot of video, which will require a lot of sound when you’re actually recording the video – perhaps you are doing interviews or you are recording bands – then you might want to look at the D3300 rather than this camera.
Traditionally used to “tell the camera” the film speed of the selected film on film cameras, film speed numbers are employed on modern digital cameras as an indication of the system’s gain from light to numerical output and to control the automatic exposure system.
