Chapter 11. Make an iMovie > What's a digital camera?

What's a digital camera?

A digital camera captures images in the same sort of technical format as your computer—in finite, countable chunks. The opposite of digital is analog, which is flowing and infinite. For instance, water is analog; ice cubes are digital; an oil painting is analog, a computer image is digital; a voice is analog, a fax is digital.

A digital camera can send the digital information straight into your computer without having to be changed into another form. iMovie can even control the camcorder, and you can set up your camera to record straight onto the iMac.
