Video: The Science Behind How Camera Sensors Work

The Science Behind How Camera Sensors Work

This video comes to us as a recommendation from Digital Photography Review, a fantastic site typically focused on consumer imaging technology like high-end DSLR cameras. But the video is so good — “One of the best overview videos we’ve seen” according to DPReview — that it transcends commercial photography and is great content for security industry video surveillance pros, too.

The 13-minute video was produced by the YouTube channel Filmmaker, and it breaks down have different camera sensors work and how sensors capture light. The video is highly technical, but in our estimation, that’s a good thing, because in 13 minutes you get a very strong “101 course” on image capture.
