Surveillance Cameras for Security and Entertainment

Surveillance Cameras for Security and Entertainment

Jul 17

The evolution of cameras can clearly be seen in today’s products and accessories. Originally, such devices are known to store various images. The images which are stored are often photographs of moving objects such as movies. Such devices work through the use of light spectrum which would enter through an electromagnetic spectrum. These devices generally have an enclosed area with a certain type of aperture in the front and a viewing surface which would capture the light in one end. The old version devices that we often see in movies actually have a diaphragm mechanism which is connected to an aperture. Their first output was films which were printed in paper done by expert professionals. As the years progress, electronic image sensors and automatic shutter buttons were applied. New versions of vid-cams are known to take 24 films per second as long as the photographer can hold the shutter button.

There are many uses when it comes to cameras. One of which is for entertainment purposes. Most people would acquire a DSLR just to take pictures of their friends and their families. Some collect photographs because of their beauty. Some of the examples for their photos include landscape photography, still art and light photography. There are also some professional photographers which work with photography in order for them to earn money. They earn money by taking pictures of people and special events such as weddings, birthdays and anniversaries. Once they have taken the footage, they would then either copy the files to a CD or DVD and then send it to their clients. Usually, photographers are also responsible and distribution of pictures and short movies.

Another use for the trusty device is for security purposes. Since today’s devices have small lenses which can virtually fit anywhere, it has become a tool for surveillance purposes. Most companies now apply the use of such lenses in small toys and even in walls. Now, such devices are even fitted in teddy bears and they are used for checking up on children and inside the home. Another place where most manufacturers add their lenses are in small handheld consoles. Since small handheld consoles are used in reconnaissance and spy related activities, some manufacturers have come up with the idea on how to make a device that not only takes pictures but also has a very small look.

Usually, most handheld devices today are fitted with a certain kind of lens. There are some that are used in MP3 players, cell phones and even gaming consoles. There are even some which are movement sensitive. These movement sensitive lenses are designed to automatically turn on once a type of movement is felt. If the lenses would capture something moving they device would turn on and would start filming. The reason why most of handheld devices have this feature is because they are also based on entertainment. With the motion capture device, users can actually play their favorite games and they would not have to worry about controls either. All they have to do is to move and the lenses would take care of the rest.

The old versions of this device include the plate version which has significant numbers of sensitized glasses embedded in plates which were termed as plated cams. The light in these devices are absorbed by the lens and then the light would travel to a lens board which is separated from the plate by several extendible bellows. Many of these cams have a control to lower and to raise lens so that focusing would be easy. Because of its bulk size, this type of cam was actually not utilized much when it comes to surveillance since it can be seen easily and concealing it would be useless.  As the years past, there was the medium and large format cams and they were also used not only in terms of procreation but also for reconnaissance. The medium format cams actually have large lenses and small 35mm cases. Typically, these types of cams use 120- 220 film and the common sizes for pictures would be around 6×4 centimeters by 6×7 centimeters. The ranges of the models are rangefinders and monorail cams.

Today, there are now surveillance cameras which are mounted in shades. Users would only need to wear the shades so that they can take pictures. Popularized by a famous spy movie, these shades are easy to wear and the device transmits the entire signal to a PC. The surveillance shades are equipped with a MicroSD screen and several outputs for common 3GPP phones. This means that users can actually set the output to their phone and they would be able to record the files in 3GPP format. These sunglasses actually have a setting for outdoor activities. Most of them have antiglare systems so that users would not be blinded if they are to use the cams.

Aside from the added features, most camera shades also have a unique little program that allows users to automatically send the files to specific websites such as social networking sites. The record and playback switches can be controlled in a button and the fun thing is that since the USB connection is plug and play users would be able to easily send the output to their computer. The AC output also has an adapter which sets to about 5 to 6 hours of colored recordings which can also be played using a television screen. These devices are actually used by both the military and the police in order to record evidence of various crimes and different activities. Maintaining the devices is also easy since most of them have a lens cloth that easily cleans the sides of the frames. Once cleaning is done, users would be able to recharge the device since an AC adapter is often added with the package. Some surveillance sunglasses have a different battery outlet so that users can use other types of power such as the button battery. All of these devices are not only used for entertainment but also for surveillance.
