Standard de camere foto, lansat de Olympus si Panasonic, care foloseste un senzor de 4/3 inch (18 × 13,5 mm si diagonala de 22,5 mm), distanta flansa port-obiectiv - senzor 20 mm dar renunta la oglinda reflex din camera D-SLR. Vizarea se face live-view sau pe vizoare electronice instalate pe patina de blitz. Comunicarea intre obiectiv si camera se face prin 11 contacte (standard) si este posibila utilizarea unui obiectiv produs de un producator, pe corpul realizat de alt producator, iar, cu adaptoare, practic a oricarui obiectiv (inclusiv obiective Leica M).Foto-Magazin
– This is an implementation of the 4/3 sensor format (originally used in DSLRs) for mirrorless cameras.
Developed by IBM, micro drives are one of the original types of digital memory cards for digital cameras. Essentially small hard drives, micro drives have given way to solid-state Compact Flash cards, which contain no moving parts and, as such, are far more reliable.
Printing method developed by Irish manufacturer Alps that s similar to dye sublimation as it uses a heated element to fuse the ribbon ink to special paper for high resolution and longer life.
For most purposes, a micro lens is another term for a macro lens. Both terms indicate extreme close-up capability; macro and micro lenses produce half life-size (1:2 reproduction ratio) to life-size (1:1 reproduction ratio) images.
Micro lenses are commonly mounted on the tops of the light-gathering portion of pixels (aka photons) and are often angled along the edges of camera sensors to capture and redirect light back into the pixel, as a method of reducing light falloff on the edges of the image and redirecting it for image processing. Not to be confused with NIKKOR micro lenses.
