Electronic Image Sensor Format - Digital Camera Image sensing systems such as film cameras, digital cameras, CCDs, CMOS ar- rays, TV cameras, and movie cameras each have a specified image aspect ratio, AR . The image aspect ratio is AR = L Wim /L Him and is expressed as a ratio of integers. The quantities L Wim and L Him are shown in the figure below. For 35 mm film, the width of the film is 35 mm . However, for 35 mm film, the image format is L Wim = 36 mm and L Him = 24 mm . For the Canon model S550 digital camera, one of five image “resolutions” can be selected. These “resolutions” represent the number of recording pixels used to form the image. Each pixel is square with a side dimension of L pixel . The resolution options for the number of recording pixels are as follows: Resolution Pixels Name H × V Large 3 , 072 × 2 , 304 Medium 1 2 , 592 × 1 , 944 Medium 2 2 , 048 × 1 , 536 Medium 3 1 , 600 × 1 , 200 Small 640 × 480

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
