Imagine for moment that you are searching ebay for a product. Frequently your search will return a large number of similar products so you are faced with a choice. The odds are that in an auction, you will want to know exactly what the product is and to see a good quality picture. Without a good description and a suitable picture, you will be much less likely to bid.
Therefore, if you are selling on ebay you must observe the following:
- Provide a good, accurate listing title for the item. If the item is new -then say so. If it isn’t but it is in very good condition – then mention it. For example. Let’s assume you selling a used Pentax camera. (I am using this example as many people have saleable old cameras like this). You will frequently see a listing like this:
- “Used Pentax camera in good condition”
Unfortunately, this description will not attract much interest. You may sell it but you could have sold it for more by attracting more viewers with a different description like this:
“Superb Pentax SLR Super A camera in mint condition”
The first description doesn’t even mention what type of camera it is. Is it a film camera or a digital camera? It doesn’t say! Equally, it does not mention the model. Now the people who may be interested in this camera are likely to be fairly expert. They will know the make, the camera model and they will know it is a film camera and you have told them the condition.
There may be a significant number of enthusiasts who would be very interested in this camera. These will be high quality, serious visitors that will frequently bid.
Note: You must be accurate and truthful in your description or the winning bidder may well take further action if the item does not meet your claims.
The next rule is vital:
- Supply a good quality photograph so that your item can be clearly seen. This must appear in the gallery listing so that it is visible together with the description. The photo should show the item to its best advantage. Don’t simply prop the item up against a wall on a table and snap away. The odds are you will wind up with a mediocre result.
There should be no problem with the photo being out of focus. Modern digital cameras are all auto focus but the rest is down to you. If you hope to attract the maximum value for any item, you must invest a little time to achieve a good quality, clear picture. In the case of this example, you should use a plain background. Buy some art paper in black, white and maybe a few pastel shades as well. Buy two of each color and tape them together so that one leaf lies on a table and the other leaf is leaning against a wall.
In general, use a light colored background for dark items and a dark one for light items and get in fairly close to the item so that it nearly fills the frame.
- Watch out for reflections or hot spots caused by direct flash. This result will instantly show you cannot be bothered to go to the trouble of providing a decent picture and will immediately put some potential buyers off.
If possible, shoot your item outside on a bright day outside but out of direct sunlight. If you do this, you will get an excellent quality result and you will not need flash at all.
If you have to shoot inside you can use a separate flash placed a little way from the camera. There are many small, cheap flash units that will do the job well. You should consider this method if you sell regularly on eBay.
An alternative is to use a couple of small spotlights and tape some diffusing material over them like a piece of old (white) bed sheet but don’t let it get too hot! This gives a lovely soft diffused result. Move the lamps around until you have evenly illuminated the item, take several shots at slightly different camera and spotlight distances from the item, and then check the results.
- If you are selling an item like the camera example, then take shots of the top, bottom, front and back so every face of the camera can be clearly seen. Most potential buyers will want to see this. If you don’t do this, two things are likely to happen.
- OK. Now we come to the final stage. Make sure you include as lengthy a description of the camera as you can. The more details, the better. This includes:
The condition of the camera – good, very good, excellent or mint etc.
The full spec of the lens.
Are there any extra lenses included?
Whether it is in full working order.
Include the full camera specifications.
Whether it has any dings or scratches.
The condition of the lens (mould and scratch free etc)
Any extras included like filters, lens hoods or a case.
Whether it has a battery and whether it is new.
Whether you have owned the camera from new
Does it has a neck strap.
These are just some of the things you must include to maximise the sales value and to create confidence.
- In addition, don’t skimp on the packaging and make sure the item is well protected. If you say you are going to use first class post – do it.
This may seem a lot of trouble to go to sell an item on ebay but it doesn’t take a lot more time. It will, however make sure you get to sell your items for the maximum price by attracting more bidders. In addition, if your description and service is good, then you will get good feedback and create more confidence in future sales.
I have sold several cameras on ebay and learned the hard way. I can assure you will get 20% to 50% more if you take the trouble to use this guide.
The DCF SP 8×43 Pentax binoculars are smooth, well balanced, ergonomically designed and beautiful to handle, an excellent match for far more expensive top quality binoculars. If you don’t have £1,000+ to spend and you want high performance superior optics encased in a beautiful lightweight but rugged body then take a serious look at the Pentax DCF SP 8×43’s.
The image quality is amazing, I picked up the DCF SP 8×43 Pentax binoculars expecting a good quality viewing but was pleasantly surprised with the brightness and clarity of the image. The roof prisms are top quality high-refraction Bak-4 and phase coated and like all top quality binoculars the Pentax DCF SP’s come with fully multi coated lenses. Pentax use their own specially formulated lens coating which has been proven to deliver exceptionally bright, high contrast images (according to the brochure) and, in my opinion these binoculars stood up to the hype. I was particularly impressed at how well they performed against my all time favourites, the Swarovski 8.5×42 EL’s which are considerably more expensive.
I was impressed with the speed of focus which for me is an important feature that always influences my buying decision and being able to focus as close as 2mtrs was an added bonus. The eye relief is exceptionally good at 22mm (for the DCF SP 8×43 Pentax binoculars), the ‘twist up’ eye cups are comfortable and easy to use and the exit pupil is 5.4mm, all features that make these Pentax binoculars ideal for spectacle wearers. I did think the attached objective lens covers would prove to be irritating but I was wrong, they hang discretely below the binoculars and don’t get in the way.
The body of the DCF SP Pentax binoculars is fairly compact and exceptionally lightweight (695g) for full size binoculars due to its magnesium-alloy body. They are covered in dark green rubber armouring, which not only makes them exceptionally robust but also comfortable to hold.
As you would expect of a top quality binocular the Pentax DCF SP’s are waterproof (JIS class 6), nitrogen filled and sealed ensuring that they can be used in all weather conditions, and are fully protected against fogging and potentially damaging dust particles.
All in all the 8×43 DCF SP Pentax binoculars get my seal of approval, they are exceptional value for money with many features that make their performance comparable to that of far more expensive binoculars. The high performance optics, lens coatings and prisms are of exceptional quality and the sophisticated inner-focus optical design has helped ensure that the Pentax DCF SP’s are lightweight and compact for 8×43 binoculars. I haven’t tried them for astronomy but they stand up well in a marine environment and they are quite impressive when used for bird watching.
As birding binoculars I still prefer the Swarovski 8.5×43 EL’s but I would still be happy with the Pentax DCF SP’s and given the cost differential I couldn’t say the differences between the two warrant the much higher price tag.
Growing up with film cameras most of my life I am use to those photos I get back from the processor that are blurry, or the head is cut off, out of focus, or of something I have no idea what it is. I hated having to pay for these unusable prints, but most of all finding that, that moment in time was lost and never would be retrievable. With the advent of digital cameras many of these problems became a thing of the past. We are now able to review our photos instantly, on built in monitors on back of most digital cameras. We can see whether a new photo is required, or we can take as many as your camera is capable of taking without the worry of paying for unusable photos. You can simply delete those photos that are of no value and move on. While we can still take or send our photos to a processor to print them, we now can do this in the comfort of our home or office on a color printer attached to our computer or thru a docking station made for some cameras.
Long gone are those days of what you see is what you get with regard to photos. We can now with the advent of numerous software programs, edit our photos to meet the requirements we want. We can crop photos to something or someone in a photo, or highlight the part of the photo we want to see. We can remove red eye, that flash back seen in the eyes of subjects in our photos. We can print all different sizes of our photos for the wallet or wall, without losing the integrity of the photo.
How many of you have or have had a video camera? Yes I mean those that record to tape, either VHS or the smaller tapes. Well now most of the high-end cameras can also perform as video cameras making them even handier. The video is recorded digitally and can be down loaded to your computer. What a world huh.
I want to talk about the Pentax Optio A30 as an example of this new technology as it is one of the newest top class digital cameras out today. The A30 is built by Pentax, the innovative leader for over 80 years in the production of digital cameras along with lenses, laser printers, and scanners just to name a few. The 10 million pixels Pentax Optio A30 camera, which was introduced in February of 2007, achieves one of the highest image qualities available to date in compact digital cameras. Thanks to features such as 10 million effective megapixels that enables high-resolution images, a 1/1.8-inchCCD with a wide light –sensitive area for superior reproduction, a SMC Pentax zoom lens which is renowned for its high resolving power, an image processing engine that makes rich color reproduction possible, and three different types of anti-shake functions this is the camera of the future now.
It is these three different anti-shake functions that turns anyone using this camera into an artist. Pentax has improved it original Shake Reduction (SR) technology in the A30 by adding both Digital and Movie SR to improve image capture in lowlight settings and telephoto capture. To better detect faces and focus to properly capture portraits, Pentax has introduced their Face Recognition AF & AE function. The Optio A30 is the sixth DivX Certified digital camera that Pentax has manufactured in the past 18 months. The DivX technology makes it easy for users to create their own media with the push of a button. Instantly recording high quality DivX video and then playing it back on any of 50 million DivX Certified consumer devices available today. The Digital SR mode automatically changes sensitivity according to the brightness of the subject, and effectively reduces camera shakes and subject blurring. For the Optio A30, the maximum sensitivity has been improved to ISO 3200. With faster shutter speeds, photography with reduced blurring is now possible. While these are just a few of the capabilities of this and many of the new digital cameras, one can see this is not our fathers cameras, and the way technology keeps increasing these are also not our children’s cameras.
Camera makers target the holiday season to saturate the market with their products. Given the multitude of choices, a potential buyer is likely to be confused about which one to buy. If you are fond of water sport such as scuba diving, and snorkeling, you should look for a camera that can be used underwater. Usually camera makers use a watertight silicon skin to make digital cameras waterproof, and put them in hard housing to allow them to be submerged while taking shots.
Waterproof cameras are made to be submerged upto a specific depth; some can be used at depths of up to 15 feet. Camera Size and weight are also very important. A larger camera is harder to handle steadily. A waterproof camera needs a strap attached to a user’s wrist, to prevent them from sinking beyond recovery. Auto-focus mode may not work if the level of light in the water is low.
If you are not into scuba diving or snorkeling but want to use a camera when you are in or near water, then the Pentax Optio W30 could serve your need. The Optio W30 allows you to capture images underwater up to 10 feet, for 2 hours.
Amateur photographers may not use all the capabilities present in a high-resolution digital camera. The high resolution comes at a high price. Also, an optical zoom is more important than a “Digital zoom” which just enlarges a part of the image. The Optio W30 has a 6X optimal zoom, a huge improvement over its forebear, the W20.
The 2.5-inch LCD monitor offers an LCD Bright mode to adjust the brightness of the screen if necessary for improved viewing in the sunlight. The Optio W30 also features a Face Recognition function and Macro Photography mode to allow image capture at under half an inch; this facilitates close-ups.
A few words of caution: there are some precautions you should take in underwater photography. Before you change the battery, or the memory card, make sure the camera, and your hands, are completely dry. The waterproof function does not apply to the Optio W30’s accessories.
Also, insure that you take a good look at the warranty card. It is usually valid only where you bought the camera. If you want to use your camera abroad, over a prolonged period, switch to international warranty. This way, your camera will be covered overseas.
Although the market in digital cameras is now immense, and has become so in a short period of time, one name that can be relied on for reliability is Pentax. With just two ranges to choose from, the Optio or the SLR range, the consumer finds it easier to find a camera that suits their needs. From the beginning Pentax visibly separated its digital cameras for those who choose a digital camera for professional requirements and novices who just want a point and shoot camera.
For more than five decades since introducing the first Japanese SLR camera, the Asahiflex I, in 1952 Pentax has always been a technological forerunner and important supplier to the worlds camera industry. Pentax’s passion and dedication towards the advance of high-quality products has increased over the years and continues to be stronger than ever.
Obsolescence has never been a word in the Pentax vocabulary and, as proof of this, lenses from the very first Asahiflex can still be used, with the use of adaptors on their latest auto focus SLRs. The Company adopted its current name, Pentax Corporation, in 2002. However, this is about to disappear in early 2008, although the brand name Pentax will remain.
Although the company, Asahi Optical Co. was established in 1919, it wasn’t until 1923 that they became involved in photographic equipment when they began to manufacture lenses for cine projectors Since then Pentax have been producing precision instruments capable of producing the highest quality results. It wasn’t until 1957, however that the Pentax brand name was created and was originally intended for its cameras, but was soon used for all of the companies optical products.
Pentax products are design to cover all consumers’ requirements with the Pentax Optio line of cameras designed distinctively for people who are new to using digital technology. They are renowned for their ease of use with very accessible functions yet still offers Pentax quality. These compacts are very simple to learn, lightweight and small.
A sample is The Pentax Optio M40 that is a slim, stylish, metal bodied camera with 8 mega pixels, a 2.5 inch LCD display and 3x optical zoom. With a large number of practical features, the best of which is the super macro focus, it is well equipped to produce excellent photographs. Despite its surprisingly low price this is undeniably more than an entry-level camera and there is very little to distinguish it from higher priced models.
In the same range as the Optio M40 is the Pentax Optio T20 an exceptionally slim compact digital camera with 7 mega pixels, 3x optical zoom and a 3.0-inch touch-screen LCD display. Innovative, with a touch-screen menu system that, combined with excellent picture images, results in a thoroughly remarkable camera. Although considered to be the thinnest camera in its class, the T20 is not short of optical performance, advanced design, and Pentaxs’ latest digital technology.
At the higher end of the Pentax range of digital cameras are the SLRs, which are of a very high quality and produce digital photographs that are very detailed. One of the latest SLR models is the Pentax K200D, which comes with 10.2 mega pixels and a large, 2.7-inch wide-view LCD monitor. An ideal camera that can be as simple to use as a point-&-shoot, but is also designed for new digital SLR users. Offers many features to develop creative potential.
Knowledgeable professional photographers or serious amateurs appreciate the Pentax digital cameras and, for newcomers to digital photography, the entry level range is extremely versatile. Pentax produce a camera for all levels of experience.
New technology is omnipresent. The ongoing technology revolution is rapidly changing the cultural and social landscape of the world. Thirty years ago, choices were simpler. Take the example of cameras .35 mm cameras came in three basic models, specialized cameras like the Nikon “F” & F2, The Canon F1, and the Pentax LX, amateur level cameras like the Pentax Spotmatic, the Nikkormat “FT” series, and the Minolta SRT models, and finally the compact cameras that are called Point & Shoots today.
During the last thirty years camera technology has changed dramatically and digital cameras [digi cams] have essentially replaced traditional 35mm film cameras in popularity. Features like auto exposure, auto focus, auto flash, and program modes have made taking pictures simpler and provided photographers with options that people ever dreamed were possible.
One of the best things about digital photography is that you can see your picture right away. With just a few clicks of the mouse you can download, systematize, alter, and share all of your digital photos. Digital photography is used not only to take amusing pictures, but also by people in a lot of important professions: scientists, police, health care, lawyers, educators, and many others. Though this sounds easy, it has taken more than 150 years of dynamic technological change to bring the digital camera to its current status. It was only several years ago that Casio made the “QV-10″ digital camera public. It offered a maximum resolution of only 320 x 240 pixels, had internal memory only (no memory cards) and did not have a built-in flash. Image quality was quite bad, but it did offer one of the first color LCD screens on a consumer digital camera at the time. But the price was a whopping $500.00! Still, a number of these units were sold. Kodak also offered a couple of models in the $1,000.00 range, as Sony introduced one of the first floppy disk “Mavica” camera, and Epson came out with the first “PhotoPC” for under $500.00. A year or so later, the first 1 to 1.3 mega pixel models were being introduced at the same price point, and this time, Olympus began to lead in terms of image quality and camera features. Sony was not far behind, with Kodak and Nikon picking speed. Casio and Epson seemed to have trailed during this early stage, keeping models few, though later on each would begin to crank out higher spec cameras.
Digital Cameras lets us see things we have never seen before. One of the biggest digital cameras, the Hubble Telescope has sent digital images from deep space since 1990. One image even showed a planet outside our solar system! But it’s not just the big stuff that digital cameras help us see. It also lets us see the minutest things like microscopic particles. Explore the various options about how you could use digital photography. Would it be to take pictures of your baby once a week to chart its growth? Or would it be to start a science project? Digital photography lets you experience photos like never before.
When buying a digital camera, a few things should be kept in mind- Match mega pixels in accordance with use, look for rechargeable batteries and charger, get at least 3x optical zoom, consider investing in a memory card and try the camera before you buy it.
The best way to buy digital cameras is from online stores rather than the traditional mortar and brick shops. Here you will get a wide range of cameras for the lowest prices from the best stores around the world. Sites such as Amazon.com, Markways.com, Bestbuy.com, etc offer great value for money.
Pentax, a popular brand in the digital world, is completely owned brand of Hoya Corporation. The company was found by Kumao Kajiwara in Tokyo, Japan during the year 1919. The Pentax digital camera was the first candidate to slot in a pentaprism view finder and a response mirror setup.
During 1960’s, a campaign slogan for Pentax spoke “just hold a Pentax”. That little statement was more than enough to speak for Pentax.
In the year 2005, Pentax Corporation clubbed with Samsung Techwin to do work in the field of camera technologies and retook market from Canon and Nikon. Then both of these majors started manufacturing new DSLR products from this collaboration. The Pentax *istDS2 and *istDL2 models were also seen as the Samsung GX-1S and GX-1L.
The cameras that were manufactured by Pentax Corporation during 1960’s-70 were compact and functional, with smooth controls for operating. The design of the body was simple and clean, with not many fancy trappings. No sooner did you picked one up and held it; your hands knew that it had a precision device capable of delivering the highest quality results.
As such Pentax manufactures a large range of digital cameras, ranging from tiny point & shoots till full-featured SLRs; the major business of the company is composed by its compact Optio series of cameras. Some of the latest digital cameras from Pentax are the Pentax K200D, Pentax K20D, Pentax Optio W60, Pentax K10D.
The Pentax K20D digital SLR model follows the footsteps of the company’s successful K10D model. The K20D camera is a newly manufactured 14.6-megapixel with CMOS sensor. The Pentax K20D continues to provide both; the dust-reduction policies used in the K10D as well as K100D cameras like vibration of the sensor which will remove the dust particles. Pentax has even included a “dust alert” functionality which helps more leaning methods, by locating exactly on which part of the sensor do the stubborn dust particles reside.
Taking a picture is more than just pointing and shooting. Simple cameras are lovingly referred to as PHS models (push here, stupid). After ten years of photography and teaching it as well, I will attempt to write even complex topics easily to help you sound like a professional in just one page! Note that we’re only talking about black and white photography.
Photography – “Light writing.” When you write with light, you’re really affecting grains of a silver-based compound on the film. More light has more effect. A lack of light (or dark) doesn’t trigger an emulsion that “sticks” the silver to the film. The developing process begins with a chemical we call Developer. It removes silver that wasn’t stuck. The next chemical is called a fixer; it stops the film from reacting further to light and ‘fixes’ the image on the negative.
With light sticking the silver and dark not sticking the silver, the negative now is dark where there was light and is transparent where there was dark. The chemical reactions will continue on paper when we make a print. The paper will do just what the film did: It will get dark where light hits it and will remain paper-colored where there is no light. So the negative then reproduces the original scene by being opposite light values of the scene.
Ignoring all physics and accepting this as gospel truth, you now know that ‘depth of field’ is caused by a change in the camera’s aperture or f-stop. A small hole, or aperture, restricts the amount of light hitting the film and produces a “great” depth of field meaning many distances are in focus. With an open f-stop or a large aperture, light has more ways in and a blur occurs at distances where you didn’t focus; the depth of field is then considered “shallow.” The f-stop settings have small numbers for big openings and large numbers for small openings: This is the result of a mathematical equation decided years ago.
When using a starter manual camera, you probably preferred the Pentax K1000 or the K1000SE. If you were a Canon lover, the AE1 was your only obvious choice. Your favorite rule in photography is the “Sunny 16” rule. If you really know nothing of photography and must pick up a camera to use in front of others, ask what speed the film is (64, 125, 200, 400, 800), and set the Shutter Speed (usually on top) to a number that comes close. The F-stop ring will be a ring that makes clicking noise around the base of the lens. It has strange numbers measuring that old equation. Set the number to 16. This shortcut to a printable image (meaning the film receives an amount of light that neither over exposes or under exposes it) is only good in sunny conditions.
Having controlled numbers in the darkroom helps. The red light’s wavelength is long and used to light your way around the enlargers and chemical trays. The first tray of chemicals is developer, then a wash, then a fixer and then another wash and possibly a final rinse. These chemicals do to paper what the same named chemicals did to the film (although washes are usually just water). If you’re in the darkroom, the developer tends to be a fixed time of two minutes so that there’s a constant. Any changes are then made at the enlarger when exposing light to the paper. A yellowing print means the fixer wasn’t applied long enough; someone was in a hurry.
If you’re viewing a picture with lots of grays, you’re looking at the definition of “full range;” if you’re looking at a picture that’s high in contrast with black blacks and white whites, you’re looking at the definition of “full scale.” These brief comments are great compliments to knowledgeable photo students. Your basic understanding from this page will hopefully get you over the hump of having to ask questions a photographer has heard a million times before. It’s more interesting for an artist to discuss their take and variations on the process rather than explain the process itself. If you find a black and white photographer, you can now, basically, chat it up!
This slim metal-bodied compact cameras which started with the Optio S, the Optio S12 is a slimline, easy to use point and press camera with a massive 12Mp resolution and 3x optical zoom.
For less than £150 you get an easy to use point and shoot camera with 12Mp, 3x zoom and a 2.5in screen.
Pentax Optio S12:
Pentax have jam packed loads of features into the S12 to keep the casual snapper more than happy. The auto mode saves you searching through menus for the correct scene setting by selecting the correct one automatically. This is ideal for those who would normally just snap away without botheriong top fiddle and adjust settings. If you prefer to select your scene mode manually, there is a good range on offer including the usual settings for landscape, portrait, sports and so on. For each mode highlighted in the menu, a handy explanation of the ideal shooting scenario is displayed after a second or so, saving you plundering for the manual if you’re unfamiliar with each setting.
Another smart feature that enhances the ease-of-use is the Green Auto mode. Basically if you’ve changed a setting by accident, or can’t remember what you have set, the Green mode allows you to quickly reset the camera to auto everything so you can get the shot you want.
A surprising addition for a camera of this ilk are the dynamic range adjustment settings, which I would normally consider a fairly advanced feature. This can help to retrieve details in the highlights and shadows that would normally be lost in high contrast scenes. I found this feature more effective in retrieving details from shadows rather than highlights, although it does do well when the limited dynamic range of a small sensor, such as the one in this camera, is taken into account.
The controls are set out in a fairly standard fashion, with the shutter release, power button and face detection control all on the top. On the back, Pentax have made the most of the tiny space left over by the screen and the controls have plenty of space around them for people, like me with large thumbs.
The Pentax Optio S12 is a cinch to use, fits comfortably into just about any pocket and looks as stylish as its predecessor. Although it lacks some key functions the camera earns points with its ease of use.
On the down side, we found the night scene mode (one of the few scene modes that we use on point-and-shoots) to be pretty useless: the shutter speed was consistently too slow, producing overexposed images with excessive streaking however the camera showed good sharpness and colour, and its 12Mp of detail means that you can click to your heart’s content.
The Pentax brand brings to mind a lot of memories for many photographers, enthusiasts or semi-pro, who began with a K1000, KM, Spotmatic, or ME Super. Pentax’s position in the market is not as good as it was during the prime of 35mm film. But still, Pentax continues to attract a legion of photography enthusiasts.
We now have the latest Pentax K-7, the company’s latest semi-pro/ enthusiast level DSLR. It is a handsome creature, replacing the Pentax K20D’s slightly plump utilitarianism by a pared-down and sleek elegance.
Read on for the Pentax K-7 review.
Many photographers will include the Pentax K-7 on their wish list. Here are some of the highlights of this DSLR: 720p/1080i HD video recording, smaller steel/magnesium alloy body, updated sensor with four-channel readout, and 3-inch VGA (920,000 dot) LCD screen.
The Pentax K-7 also features an enhanced viewfinder with greater coverage (although less magnified) and a shutter mechanism with a shutter speed of 1/8000th. The DSLR also sports and AF illumination lamp and a much faster continuous shooting of up to 5.3 frames per second. What is more, this camera features 77 segment exposure metering sensor and a new dust removal system.
These are just some of the big stuff; the implications of these changes are almost as significant as the apparent effects of these changes. This DSLR camera now has faster videos and frame rates. Also, the enhanced 4-channel sensor makes less noise as compared to the Pentax K20D version.
Moreover, the Pentax K-7 has many more subtle upgrades and additions that reveal just how fundamental a change the camera is from its predecessors. It has an improved ISO button, three-shot built-in HDR capture, and distortion and chromatic and aberration correction for DA and DFA also found in RAW conversion. It is a great idea to buy Pentax K-7.
The Pentax K-7 also features an adjustable shadow correction and dynamic range highlight. As with composition adjustment, it uses the SR system in repositioning the sensor to fine-tune the composition.
