About this photo

This photo was taken by on 2008:02:17 15:23:40.

The camera used by the author of this photo was Canon PowerShot SD1000 by Canon, with a shutter speed of 1/1250, a focal distance of 17400/1000 and an IOS of 200.

Image quaility

A shutter speed of 1/1250 means the sensor was exposed for 0.0008 seconds. This is a low enough value to guaranty that the image is probably sharp, even if captured without a tripod or if it has moving objects in it.

An ISO of 200 means the lightning conditions this photo was taken under were probably quite good, most likely in the outdoors during the day or with the help of a tripod. A low ISO like this usually translates into a good image quality, without "noise" or other kind distortions.
