In the past twenty years, most of the majortechnological breakthroughs in consumerelectronics have really been part of onelarger breakthrough:-
converting conventional analoginformation (represented by a fluctuatingwave) into digital information(represented by ones and zeros, or bits). This fundamental shift in technologytotally changed how we handle visualand audio information -- it completelyredefined what is possible.
 The digital camera is one of the mostremarkable instances of this shift
Essentially, a digital image is just a long stringof 1s and 0s that represent all the tiny coloreddots -- or pixels -- that collectively make up theimage.
 This can be done by sampling the original lightthat bounces off the subject, immediatelybreaking that light pattern down into a series of pixel values.
 Just like a conventional camera, it has a series of lenses that focus light to create an image of ascene. But instead of focusing this light onto apiece of film, it focuses it ontoa semiconductor device that records lightelectronically. A computer then breaks thiselectronic information down into digital data.
