How your cam­era cap­tures pic­tures

NPhoto - - FEATURE -

Your Nikon cap­tures and pro­cesses im­ages in four main stages. Stage 1 is where the pho­to­sites on the sen­sor are ex­posed and reg­is­ter an ana­logue light value, which needs to be con­verted into dig­i­tal data as part of the sig­nal pro­cess­ing that hap­pens in Stage 2. This pro­duces a Raw file in Stage 3. Or, the cam­era will go on to Stage 4 and process this data into a simple JPEG file.
