Understanding camera basics

Cameras come in lots of different shapes and sizes, but they all have a few basic things in common: a lens to focus on your subject, a housing (with a handle to hold it), and a mechanism to record the image. In most cameras these days, that mechanism is likely to be an electronic sensor to record the photograph digitally. It can be more difficult to override the automatic settings on cheaper models, which might leave you feeling that you are not completely in control of the final image.

it's a shame to see water marked images used in this presentation. Indicates the copyright of the photographers has not been respected and they have been taken from stock photography sites. Other wise covers some good concepts.
