store images. Most of us are knowledgable about cameras which use
film. The light passing through the lens exposes the film to light,
then the film is developed and the photographs are processed. Digital
cameras use other storage media for the images. Some cameras store
the collected information in internal memory. The cameras must be
connected to computers by a cable to download the image information.
Other cameras use various types of removable media to store the
of the cameras in the panorama below to look at samples of the various
storage media and how the image information can be transferred from
the camera to the computer.
