    Social Networking links, and other 'stuff'...

    Recently we added some new features to douglasphoto.com that we think you will enjoy and benefit from.  First of all is the Social Networking links (picture in the top row of the accompanying image); using these links you can email a page, add it to your blog, share it on Facebook or Tweet it.  If you would like to keep that page handy on your smartphone; you can click on the icon on the far right to generate a QR Code.  Scan that QR Code with your phone and you'll have to url entered into the phone automatically.  The "A" icons on the second row are used to reduce or enlarge the fonts on a page.  So if you're having any trouble reading a page you can click on the large "A" to enlarge the fonts.  We hope you'll give all of these features a try and find that they are as useful as we hope they will be.

Digital Camera Sensor Cleaning

Digital Camera Sensor Cleaning-No longer available

Digital Cameras use a "sensor" to capture images in much the same way that older cameras used film.  When it comes to cleanliness, film cameras had fewer problems because any dust that landed on the film typically moved along with the film as it was advanced through the camera, so only one or two frames might suffer as a result of that dust.  Digital camera sensor do not move and therefore do not create the same opportunity to eliminate dust. This creates the potential for a multitude of images being affected by even one spec of dust or junk (hair, lint, etc...) on the sensor.  Although many modern cameras include a sensor cleaning system, those systems do not eliminate the need for a periodic cleaning to remove stubborn particulate that the built-in system cannot shake loose.
