GLASS

The most important part of the lens. Lens quality is dependent upon the quality, type and arrangement of the glass elements within.

ZOOM RING

Turn this to adjust the focal length from minimum to maximum. Obviously, prime lenses do not have a zoom ring.

MANUAL FOCUS SWITCH

If you want to go into manual focus mode some lenses feature a switch for this on the side of the lens, while in other cases the switch is only on the camera body.

IMAGE STABILISATION

A stabilisation system in the lens will increase your image sharpness by reducing the occurrence of

Photoshop

Since the arrival of Photoshop CS over 10 years ago. Photoshop has included its own integrated Raw converter. The Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) plug-in has evolved greatly since its inception in 2003, and with Photoshop’s universal appeal amongst professionals and enthusiasts alike, has a wide user base.

And it’s easy to see why as well. From browsing your Raw files in Adobe Bridge (supplied with Photoshop), you can then seamlessly open them in Adobe Camera Raw before carrying on rating your images in Photoshop, offering a simplified workflow.

There’s also a wealth of editing controls available to you, including tods

Physics Dubna reproduced synthesis of superheavy element 117

MOSCOW, June 25. Physicists at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna near Moscow successfully replicated the experiment on the synthesis of superheavy element 117 of the periodic table, obtaining evidence that will help the official recognition of the opening of the new element by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, told RIA Novosti deputy director of the Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions Andrew Popeko.

In nature there are no elements with an atomic number (number of protons in the nucleus of an atom) is greater than 92, that is heavier than uranium. Heavier elements, such as
