      The heart of the digital camera is the Charged-Coupled Device sensor. In my mind it is a truly amazing thing. You can think of it as an enormous chain of buckets, over 54 million of them in my camera and it’s a pretty bucket less by today’s standards. So small, they are a similar size to the light waves they record and hence viewed with the naked eye they shimmer rainbows of interference, reflected light. All these buckets can tip their contents of electrical charge, produced when light hits them, into the next and the next and so on millions of times, until it can be collected and counted at the edge. All this happens in the blink of an eye when you press the shutter. So when you are looking at a digital photo you are looking at something beautifully miraculous. Some more than others.
